    This place was really cool. They have a million different whiskeys and a $2 mystery beer grab bag. Good looked awesome but I was there for the whiskey. Very nice staff and a super cool setup.

    Best bloody Mary in the city, all their food is incredible, highlights are: flaming wings, egg sandwich, steak burrito, meatloaf and buffalo chicken sandwich. Check out their lunch special!

    Deck up top open during summer; the Hangover Hospital is a brilliant brunch menu. Bloody Mary is among the finest in the fair city. You won't regret heading out west to get there.

    The burger is very good. But you don't have to have it every time. Its craft beers are quite good. I can even urge you to go for the random "Butch's Beer Special" should you want to cheap it out.

    Always caught my eye when I'd drive past and finally got to go as bar of the Chicago Bar Bracket. Tempura Bacon = amazing & a handful of delicious Bloody Mary's to choose from. Read more

    Egg-y brunch is definitely an option here, but why be distracted by scrambles and toast when you can get a famous Fatboy, which is customizable with a variety of toppings at no extra charge. Read more

    Great burger deal for lunch! Legendary Fatboy burger which includes a select beer or soda for $10! Also have 3 limited dogfishhead brews on draft! Get'em while the gettins good!

    The road rash bloody mary is phenomenal. If you like buffalo sauce, you have to try the chicken tenders. They make their own buffalo sauce and it kicks the crap out of bottled buffalo sauce. Yum!

    Great Bloody Mary's loaded with tons of meat and cheese. Brunch menu is amazing. I do the Lavache Poire, but also highly recommend the corned beef hash. Sit at the bar, too! Awesome staff on Sundays.

    Awesome rooftop summer brunches. Can't miss. And their extensive beer & whiskey selections keep you warm & tucked in during the winter months.

    "an airy rooftop beer garden, a standout whiskey selection...a beer selection that lives up to the rest at this not-so-subtly biker-inspired bar" - Thrillist

    The Bloodies are delicious, the roof is the best and there is nothing bad on the food menu (although the falafel comes unassembled, which is tricky). Tuesday's dirty dozen can't be beat!

    Nice craft beer list, unfortunately they seem to be out of a lot of it. They came through in the end though with a nice recommendation. Don't skip the bloody mary.

    The cheese curds are the best I've had in the city, and the honey mustard they serve it with has a nice kick!

    Picnic tables and a great whiskey selection make this teeny rooftop, overlooking a fairly blah section of the city, a laid-back spot to catch some sun. Read more

    Typical biker bar. Amazing rooftop patio in the summer and an endless selection of never-heard-of-that-before beer.

    Good beer selection, but the food is the real star. The gumbo is amazing, as well as the chili!

    Some of the best hand-cut shoe-string fries in the city. Bloody Marys provide a meat skewer and side-car (small beer back).

    Ask for a whiskey sour from the bartender with the elongated earlobes. You won't be disappointed. Or sober for long.

    Unmissable. Get the classic bloody mary, best anywhere. Burgers are massive and excellent. Salma-bloody, not recommended. The nightly drink specials are a great deal.

    Go to Twisted Spoke on a Wednesday for half-price on all whiskeys. Try George Stagg. The portobello sandwiches are addicting as well.

    I think the names of their drinks are chessy, and some of the graffiti on the bathroom walls are juvenile. But they have a repatriation

    If you're a daring man, try the Double Fatty. It's enough to kill ya. I actually finished one off w/ the fries and my beers. It's a mean burger

    We heard great things about the Bloody Mary, but the waiter told us it's made with beef broth! So disappointed.

    Food is better than the service but its a biker themed whiskey bar so it was to be expected.
