    The mussels "Belgian Style" are superb! They pair nicely with almost any beer!

    Stay for the mussels. Great beer selection. A pioneer in craft brewing when it comes to bringing it to Chicago.

    It's where you'd least expect, but Hopleaf actually features a great wine list. It's mainly European, focusing on old world wines, but that's not to say there aren't any new world choices. Read more

    Great selection of actual proper beer. Staff very friendly and willing to let you sample a couple and advise you before deciding. Possible to get food in the bar, which was very good.

    The beer selection is very exciting. The food is good, but just concentrate in the beer.

    You may enter here as a novice, eyes glazing over with one glance at all the "brouwerijen" smattered through the encyclopedic menu. Take your time and experiment with something new. Read more

    Come to this bar for lunch or dinner as they serve up some delicious meals as well as great drinks. Ask your server what they recommend but definitely try the Montreal-style beef brisket. Read more

    I had a really good cherry cider that wasn't too sweet or bitter, very good.

    The Duck sandwich is amazing! Get it with the smokey mac n cheese or homemade potato chips. So good!

    Muriel Vega · October 11, 2014

    Get the Belgian style mussels (they come with pomme frites!). If you see the table by the window open, grab and order from the bar. Better than waiting for 45 mins for a table.

    The beers. Lol

    Besides their extensive menu of drinks/beers, you must try their mussels and fries!

    Beer is much gut.

    Incredible beer selection. Don't be like my friend who ordered Bud Light. But don't worry, the bartender put him in his place and it was great.

    The mussels are fantastic, and the sausage and potato appetizer is great too. Killer Belgian beer selection.

    Get the CB&J.

    Lee Allen · August 7, 2014
  • Theo E.

    Awesome beer selection. You can spend quite a few hours (and quite a few dollars) trying all the brews. The frites are a good snack to nibble on while you imbibe.

    Theo Estes · August 7, 2014

    If you go, make sure to order the mussels for two in the beer sauce. Read more

    They're nixing regular fries and burgers and adding in none other than cheese head (that's pig's head) charcuterie. Or, try a duck and Gruyere crepe. Read more

    Hate this place. Over priced and the bartenders are rude.

    Get the white wine mussels. Amazing and enough for two for a meal. Comes with huge basket of awesome frites.

    You may need a cocktail after all of this, Hopleaf has a great selection of beers!

    Get the CB&J Sandwich for a great vegan experience! The Mac n cheese that comes with it was so tasty!

    Duck Reuben!

    Katie O'Toole · March 28, 2014
  • Chris H.

    One of the reasons I moved to Andersonville. Likely the world's greatest beer bar. The ham sandwich is epic, so are the muscles. Have a Zombie Dust, one of few places in Chicago that have it on tap.
