    $13-16 for a 16oz pour is INSANE even for this area.

    Asking for tomato on the burger resulted in a $4 surcharge.

    Their brunch is shockingly good. Fried chicken and beer pairings, decked out bloody maries and a pretty solid burger. I would go back, but I think my food baby is still hanging out from last weekend..

    Slow service, non-updated menu. Gave us the wrong beer and insisted it was right and didn't even ask if we wanted something different. Up side: the food is delicious and they have a great beer list.

    Inflated Loop prices for the same gastropub fare you can find done better on the north and west side. That said, the food and drinks weren't terrible and there's not much else like it downtown.

    *The* place to take clients if you work for a Publicis agency and want an impressive lunch. Attentive service, wonderful burgers, sexy, slick decor, and pimento cheese on everything.

    Great duck tacos. There's two entrances, one without a front desk. Not much outdoor seating so plan indoors for more ambiance and also a fooseball table.

    Release your kids from the chains of boring food and nudge them toward the buffalo tenders instead—they’re marinated in cumin, coriander and other spices; then fried and served with blue-cheese sauce. Read more
