This place is great! The staff is always very friendly. The new location is really lovely and has both indoor and outdoor seating. The restaurant is very simply and tastefully decorated. Even if you know nothing about British food, you can find something interesting here. There really is no other place like it in the city.
Great traditional fish and chips. The fish is fresh, perfectly cooked and comes with crispy potatoes on the side. Their specialty is pies. The crust is so flaky, the fillings are hot and savory, the peas with mint are tasty and fresh, and the service could not be friendlier. The food itself is definitely made with quality ingredients and care.
Cozy atmosphere and a great place to sit down and enjoy a few happy hour beers! They're brunch menu is very appealing. Great corner location, fab interior, creative menu items, descent prices and awesome beer selection.
The Red Lion is a no frills British themed bar and grill. They have a handful of beers on tap as well as a variety of beers by the bottle. This continues to be an excellent neighborhood spot for food and beverages. Superb food and atmosphere. Very friendly staff. A real winner and great neighborhood gem. Warm and cozy, perfect for a winter's evening with solid food and beer.
. Awesome food, great prices, and beautiful wait staff. They have a TON of pastries to choose from, most of which have some Austrian and German influence. Good breakfast menu, bakery and coffee.It is small and popular for brunch on the weekends, so come early because you may have to wait to sit down. When it is warm out they have a nice patio which provides them with a few extra tables.
There are so many things about this place. From the grocery shopping, to the beer & brauts on the rooftop...this place is a Chicago gem. Given the wait for food on the rooftop, this isn't a secret gem. It's a well known summer spot for some craft beer and a few sausage options. Eating on the roof in the summer, is certainly one of the best ways to spend a summer afternoon.
There is a great selection of sandwiches ranging from turkey to pure veggie as well as a few soup and salad options. Ingredients are very fresh and the pretzel bread was so soft and delish! For the seriously concerned celiac: The gluten free bread is individually wrapped and stored on the counter in a closed plastic box. There is a knife set aside to cut the bread. The chef will ask you if they need to change their gloves when you say 'gluten free sandwich.
The atmosphere is about as Irish as you can get without going to Ireland. The beer and whisky selection is great. Their servesr are very knowledgeable about the food and drink selections. The menu here has many Irish standards and more.
