    When my girlfriend told me she had to reserve this place two weeks in advance I was a bit skeptical but oh my god it is well worth the wait. This place is nothing short of excitement from the flavors the food brings. Everything is rich with flavor. I would come back to the city of Chicago just to eat here again. The chicken sandwich was so good since they used chicken thighs and the meat was tender and soft but super crispy. The duck and dumplings had a depth of flavor it left me shocked wanting to order more and more. Definetly check this place out as it is one for the history books. Bring an empty stomach. The beer and cocktails was also nice. But the food is where it is at.

    Love this place! The food is always good, the vibes are really cool and the staff is friendly. They have a good size list of draft beers which are mostly house brews. I enjoy coming here every time! Recommendations - the beer cheese dip, jumbo pretzel & beef jerky to snack on.

    Inventive beers pair super well with the food. The rose ale was refreshing. Fries are perfectly crispy and the schnitzel was larger than my face and the flavors balanced nicely. Add amazing service to that and you have a delightful evening out

    Probably have been here 15+ times in the past year and will be coming back 30+ more. You can't go wrong here. Food is always good, beer is a beautiful balance of aromatic/flavor/price/quality. Get the salads. They are probably the best I've ever had from anywhere. But if you aren't into that the wings and dumplings are just perfect comfort food that pair with everything on the menu.

    We went on Saturday night with a reservation and were situated in a nook that was a little more private, which was great, but caused the servers to initially miss us. We waited around 20 minutes with no interaction from any of the staff before one of us got up and kindly reminded we were there and ready to order. Immediately a waiter come over and apologized and said the first round was on them. After that, they checked on us throughout the night and kept apologizing. I got the Duck and Dumplings and beer flight which were both amazing. Everyone else raved about their food and drinks, as well. Despite the little hiccup at the beginning, we were overall super happy with the food, experience, and exceptional customer service. Would definitely come back.
