For a good time... – The frat party vibe was present yet not overwhelming. Spacious bar with many places to sit and gather makes it a great place to meet up with people you know or just meet new ones.
worth the trip – the food is good, the atmosphere is nice (a little too dark) and the service is usually great- not to mention some hot servers! the bartenders aren't bad either- a little slow. overall, a great place for dinner and drinks, and once it gets late, a little dancing.
corn-e – If you don't mind an infusion of emerson lightweight chinos or fraternity brawls, this place is for you. The food is O.K., but the people watching is top rate. You can watch barbies bounce pretending to be stupid in hopes of catch her melanoma man.
DiveTwin's Review – This is the best burger in the city ... and rivals Boston Blackies as the biggest. It's fresh USDA ground beef with a seasoning (I can't place it) that's delicious. You design your own burger from how it's cooked to the toppings that include four cheeses, guacamole, bacon, olives, mushrooms, etc. along with the usual toppings and condiments. It is accompanied either with regular crispy french fries or their home-made fried potato chips. The atmosphere is terrific with a nice outdoor area and an old-world bar feel to it.
It's my place to go after running the Chicago Marathon!
What an atmosphere – I've only been here twice but both times have been extremely fun. I love the atmosphere.
College folks only – I remember (to my slight shame) just loving places like this in college. People everywhere, loud as hell, sloppy. But the thrill is gone mere years later, and now John Barleycorn seems to me a sad meat market full of desperate kids, many of which will be full-fledged alcoholics in 5 years. The thing is, if I read that statement back then, I would have been there the next Friday night...
