Wicker Park blues joint named and owned by a Chicago legend. – The Scene
The musician's touch is obvious in the exceptional sound system and the two-foot-high stage, which offers good views from anywhere in the club. Walls feature memorabilia, like a poster for "Nuit du Blues" from Grenoble and the Chief's Native American image in blankets and headdress. Above the bar, a retired Clearwater guitar, cowboy boots and a trio of cowboy hats are on display. The club's sturdy wood, brick and restored-copper bar make up for its relative newness.
Blues fill the club every night it's open; expect wailing harmonica, shout-outs to blues greats and vinyl nostalgia. Reservation Blues has an extensive food menu (oddly Southwestern, considering Clearwater's Mississippi heritage) that includes Indian fry-bread tacos and masa-encrusted sea bass. Order sweet-potato fries or the Big Chief buffalo burger.
Best Blues In Town – The worst service I have ever experienced. the food was over priced and bland, as well as, taking an eternity to be delivered. When I asked for management. I was approached by the most awful and the rudest person I have ever experienced in my life. I will never return EVER!!!!
