One of Chicago's few solid happy hour picks. A delightfully dim interior is a fitting backdrop for tipping back pints and tossing peanut shells on the floor.

Great option in the Loop - try the bar's own sour ale!

Decent grub, better Happy Hour – I've had a few experiences w/ Monk's and would highly recommend it as a good place to go after work for a few drinks w/ co-workers. Drinks are reasonably priced and the atmosphere is casual and warm. There are a few nitches to hide-away in as well if that's what you're looking for. The food, well, decent in my opinion but worth having, just don't expect extraordinary.

Best burger? Hardly. – Stop at this place every now and then for lunch, and although the pub boasts the best burger in Chicago, it is far from it. Food in general is not what would get me in the door - its the setting that is so original about the place. Once you're inside, you dont know if you're in Chicago or Prague. Neat place for a quick bite, nothing for a first date.

Great After Work Pub – Monk's is a great after work hang out. I have been here several times with co-workers and we have always had a good time. The service is good the waitress are very attentive. The food is your typical bar food fare but definitely delicious! Don't be surprised when you walk in the door if it is covered in peanut shells that is just one of it's charms.

Great place for Lunch – This is a great place for lunch. Burgers are great. The place fills up fast so get there before 12 if you don't want to wait.

Another hidden lunch spot for business folks in the loop--and a great place to grab a post-work drink. – The Scene
It's dark and wood-paneled, with a long bar and plenty of closely bunched tables and booths. Servers, many of whom have been here for a long while, are very friendly--even when faced with the lunch rush. A nice selection of draft beer is available, along with a full bar.

The Draw
Burgers, sandwiches and salads dot the menu. Don't expect anything revolutionary or low-fat, though--most everything comes with a pile of fries (either regular or Cajun-spiced). The burgers are huge (1/2-pounders) and come with a staggering array of toppings. A top choice is The Mediterranean, topped with feta cheese, olives and grilled onions. The grilled chicken Caesar salad is also a winner, with its juicy chicken strips served atop a large bed of greens. Or go for the chicken Caesar sandwich--a grilled chicken breast, topped with onions and served with Caesar dressing on the side.

Great place for hang-over food – When you have been out too late on a 'school night' and are having a rough morning at the office. You have to stop in here for lunch and have a burger. It is the best cure for a hang-over. Fun place for happy hour also, great beer selection. This is your neighborhood bar located in the loop.
