    They make a great Manhattan here. Also a nice selection of brews. I spent most of my time at a party downstairs and it was nice and comfortable. Staff was great and prices very reasonably. Hit it up!

    My favorite restaurant. The buffalo chicken salad is amazing, especially because of their peeled celery and carrots as a topper. The steak salad's great too. Actually, everything here is effing great.

    Good place for after work drinks especially if its nice outside. Watch your tabs at the bar, they've been known for adding drinks to your tab if you're in a large group thinking you won't notice.

    The Penny Farthing has a great draft beer selection, go for the Goose Island ($7), but if beers not your thing there also a decent selection of inexpensive wines – try the Martin Codax Albarino.) Read more

    A classic. Fun at night out with friends, but gets very crowded. I've also gone during the day when it's less packed for a beer and played charades with friends :)

    Curly fries are tasty and a great value for only $5 per huge serving. Great spot to watch games; several large TVs throughout the dining area.

    Try the Butternut Squash and Shrimp Risotto - The squash is really sweet & the addition of some regiano at the end is a nice touch. The shrimp are huge too.

    Amy is such a breath of fresh air in an isle of glib servers. Trust her food recs, and enjoy a very welcome "I'm not from here" attitude that results in hand written recs to other venues.

    A fratty and crowded bar by night. We prefer to come here on a lazy Sunday afternoon for their $6 sangria special.

    The food is great in here. Try the steak salad, or the skirt steak and for breakfast try the steak and eggs. Love the steak here. really cool bar tenders. Also has a great party on weekends.

    The brunch menu ventures into playful fare like the most popular dish, "eggs in a nest," two eggs served any style over parmesan toast. The mimosas, bloody Marys and sunflower martinis are also good. Read more

    Happy hour wines are $5 and a very healthy pour. Good after work crowd and good place to dance on the weekends.

    Dope spot. Always a great time. A lot of room upstairs and down, and downstairs can be fun when they turn the lights off.

    This place can get pretty crowded on the weekends. If you can't get to the bar, there's another one downstairs that may save you time.

    Crowded but huge place. Sit at the bar if it's just for drinks or have to order something to eat to have a usual. Wine is good

    The goat cheese in the goat cheese salad is amazing! I wish they just served the fried goat cheese as a side on it's own

    Very high (almost excruciating!) noise level, because there are no absorbing surfaces.
