    If you’re nursing a hangover, try the PBR breakfast—two eggs, bacon or sausage, maple glazed spam, house potatoes, can of PBR—along with a shot of whisky to help with the recovery process. Read more

    If you live in Logan, and you eat meat, you owe it to yourself try their Wild Boar Sloppy Joe at least once. They've got an interesting take on Chicken & Waffles, too. An interesting, delicious take.

    Brunch isn’t just for hipsters here. Try the duck egg hash, biscuits and gravy teeming with huge chunks of pork sausage and especially their chicken and waffles, which are among the best in the city. Read more

    Had the wild boar sloppy joe w/fries and cauliflower dish. Both delicious. Great bar area in back for drinking/waiting for a table. Nice outdoor space. Food is worth the wait.

    Eggs come with house-made maple-glazed Spam, crispy potatoes and an ice-cold PBR. Pork belly Benedict, sunny-side duck hash and fried chicken and waffles are among the alternatives. Read more

    Longman and Eagle has been cool before Logan Square was, and has kept that reputation by continuing to create great food, keeping the operation small, and not leaving the smallest detail unfinished. Read more

    Great whiskey selection! The burger was good. I was looking fwd to the sloppy joe. Love the taste they were going for but unfortunately the onion strings and sage were stale. Very friendly staff.

    If you get there early enough on a day when they’re selling maple bacon donuts, grab one of those as well; they create a perfect precursor to the second half of the meal. Read more

    Any place that in one hand offers up multiple dishes that are centered around sweet sweet marrow and in the other a two-foot long whiskey menu is good in my books.

    The meatballs and bone marrow were amazing: standout, memorable dishes. The escolar with grapefruit was also delicious, and a nice lighter contrast to the meat.

    Kitchen is open til 1AM, but patio is only open til midnight. Kentucky Fried Quail and tête de cochon both delicious, as were all the desserts we had (apple pie, steam cake, and hopia & anglais)

    Amazing food! Try something risky, and if it's not your taste, they'll find something else you'll enjoy (sometimes on them). Great service, and definitely worth whatever wait you might have to get in.

    Love their ambience and their outdoor seating. Food is very good and the service was great as well. Just a heads up, the chicken and waffles is made with bone-in chicken. Not my favorite style.

    Best Bloody Mary - hands down. Also a wonderful inn upstairs, just be prepared to stay up late or use the earplugs. You're sleeping above a bar, there's bound to be late night music.

    Pbr breakfast is all you need. The bacon I think was applewood smoked. (The best smoke) the potatoes were exceptional. Be careful, the server offered us bread without letting us know it's an upcharge.
