Love this place. Engaging, professional and super friendly staff. Pub food in style but the quality and presentation is definitely a step above the norm. Mini-taco appetizers are really good.

Went here on a whim a month or so ago and then last weekend. Both times were great experiences. The place was crowded but not overwhelming: just enough to make it fun. Food is fantastic--get the jalapeno pretzel and the BBQ wings. Both have excellent flavor and portions sizes are more than generous. Servers were attentive, they have a bunch... More

Friendly, attentive service, average food prices, great quality food (fish tacos were great). Plenty of TVs to watch the game. NHL center ice and NFL/MLB network, so if you need to catch an out of town game this is the place.

We went on a Friday evening - it was packed and very very loud. The drinks and food were fine! I don't like having to shout to the people I'm with, so I ate and people watched, and left! Fun place for 20-30 yr olds.

Brownstone Tavern have a great beer list and menu as well. They have indoor and outdoor seating and you always see several families there with small children. If you like sports, this is definitely a good place to go as well. Once summer hits, they have a nice area where you can sit outside. Check it out if you are... More

First, you need to get the chilimac. Really. We have been for Bulls game nights. They do a good music mix during commercials. We have been outside with family. It is a great place to bring friends. If it is the weekend of any local sports game on TV, you may not get a table. But it is worth it... More
