    The best sports bar in the south loop by far. Go before and after Bears home games, the place is a rocking good time filled with great scenery. Just a plain good time any day of the week.

    Your average sports bar. Their burgers are delicious, I've thoroughly enjoyed the classic burger and the turkey burger. The sweet potato fries are amazing!

    The wings are really good and the French Toast (weekend brunch only) is delicious. Game days are packed so get there early if you want a seat.

    Patio faces West and is sunny until almost sunset! Good food and atmosphere, extensive beer selection, and usually solid music playing.

    This place is DB Central here in the South Loop. As annoying as any shi-shi River North trendy spot. Here's hoping it dies as quickly.

    The Copy Cat is unbelievable. Bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg on a pretzel dough bun. A must-try.

    Friendly service, great atmosphere for sports & events. Beer selection is thumbs up. Food is satisfactory. Filthy bars though; insane amount of fruit flies - disgusting. Needs to work on cleanliness.

    Came for brunch and the eggs on the breakfast skillet were overcooked on two different orders! Failed the fundamentals. Only one occasion but a bit of a bust.

    Managment refused to put hawks game on a TV when we had a full party ordering food & drinks. After asking 6 times our waitresses excuse was that managment is strict about what they put on their TV's.

    Better than average Sports Bar but Brunch folks beware they charge $3 per coffee with no refills. Very, very poor form to get $12 coffee bill over casual Brunch IMHO.

    Service isn't slow, it's non-existent. After waiting 15 min for a server, we bailed. Wait staff was standing at the back bar twirling their hair. Went to Flo and Santo's across the street.

    Waitress tired to fudge my bill, I called her up on it with her manager and I was proved right. She tried to get me to pay $80+ when my bill was actually $24. Disgraceful servers will never be back.
