    Kind of a meh atmosphere. The burgers were mediocre and the combinations aren't great. The fries are tasty though. Great beer list!

    It's a lot like Small Bar (which previously occupied this space), only with overpriced drinks and bad food.

    Yes, yes, it is still good. Haven't tried the new menu yet. Haven't asked it to turn on a soccer game either. ☞ Free wi-fi.

    The poutine is great. The bar looks great. I've never been in here though when there are actually people. If your looking for that, swing by on a Sunday night, or Wednesday night.

    LOVE the chicken wings/backs appetizer! Chef changes sauce/glaze all the time. Crispy, tasty, with lick-your fingers glaze, (sweet-savory apricot glaze, etc.) sophisticated and filling. A bargain.

    If you get the tots, ask for a side of wasabi mayonnaise. Dip the tots in the mayo and make them some of the best taters in Chicago.
