Poor... Packer fans from Wisconsin. Would never come back. You want a real Packer experience... go to Green Bay. Poor service, oh wait, no service. Go to the bar and get it yourself I guess.

Great bar in the heart of Lakeview. Perfect before or after cubs games to avoid the crowds in Wrigley (but still walking distance), great for a Saturday or Sunday on the patio enjoy a few drinks, or great for a night out.

Great lively bar with wonderful atmosphere. My daughter has some severe food allergies and Kevin and his staff were remarkable in making sure they made something for her and it worked. Will be back again for a Badger game too!
