Great Food! – This is a great neighborhood spot. It goes without saying that the outdoor patio is amazing in the summer. But it's also a good place for private parties and meeting up with friends to watch sports. The owners are really involved and i've had a lot of really good meals there!
Best Sports Bar in Lincoln Park! – I have been living in Lincoln Park for over three years and Mickeys has always been a nice place to kick back after work and watch the game with some friends. They do some great beer specials (for those looking to save some cash) and have a large selection of draft and bottles as well as their signature mojito cocktails. There are plenty of big screen plasmas and the staff are very accommodating when it comes to showing all college or pro sports. The Buffalo Chicken sandwich is a must for all hot wing lovers out there!
Worst Place Ever! – I went to Mickey's on Saturday night with a group of 20 plus friends for a birthday party that was pre-arranged with the manager. We got there and the price for the wristband went from 20 to 25$. Then we got upstairs and there were two people making out the entire time. It was pathetic and uncomfortable for everybody. The manager was inappropriately touching the waitresses and allowing over served patrons that were not a part of our party to bother people in our group. I would strongly recommend staying away from this place.
Never Again! – I used to go to Mickey's to watch a game on weekend afternoons. The service was always slow and inattentive. Great to look at but terrible at their "day" jobs. When you are just hanging out getting pitchers this isn't so bad but if you want service this is not your place.
NOW... The LAST TIME I was there I got there about an hour before close on a Sunday. My friend and I ordered a pitcher and finished it rather quickly. We ordered another pitcher with about 45 minutes til close.
The bartender, while surly, delivered the pitcher.
Five minutes later... FIVE MINUTES LATER!, he walks over and tells us "lets wrap it up fellas" and drops off our check unsolicited. He turned and walked to the bar and before he got there turned around and said "Seriously, let's wrap it up." I told him we'd like to finish our pitcher and he said "you should have thought of that before you ordered it." I asked if he was kidding or not. He said "No, It's time to go".
I asked for the second pitcher to be taken off the check and he said "No Way".
We sat and began enjoying the rest of our beer and then he returned with a check with only the one pitcher on it. He set it down and again said "Time to go".
We paid and left.
Neither of us have been or will ever go back to Mickey's Snack Bar.
My New Haircut! – For all of you who have seen the Youtube video "My New Haircut" you know what I'm talking about. Don't go to this bar!
Editorial Review – Enjoy your favorite sports game while you dine or just relax with a cocktail at Mickey's Bar & Patio.
Mickeys is so much fun! in the summer you can look out at people from the patio, in the winter you can go get some great drinks from fun people! weekend nights can be crazy but theres so many people there just having a good time you can help but have fun! great place to watch sports and the food is pretty good, the quesadillas are awesome! why wouldn't you want to go to a fun place in the middle of lincoln park??
Legendarily bad service, but whatever – Mickey's is a pretty good place. The menu, while limited, has some standouts such as the burgers and chicken. 1/2 the menu is drinks/cocktails. Mojitos aren't too bad, and they have a decent beer slection. The patio is nice when the weather is nice, but after October becomes non-option. Some of the waitresses are just plain unreal, and most are at least pretty hot but....
they're terrible!! Almost jokingly. I think the problem is that they have a good amount of waitress staff there, and many of them are *always* coming into the bar when they're not working (why? who knows? get a life, go to school, etc etc) and B.S-ing with the girls who ARE working. Like I said they're not unattractive, so at first you don't mind. Then you finish your beer, wait 10-15 minutes for their conversation to die down, and the girl comes by. w-t-f.
I would not go there at night, if for no other reason than there are so many better bars/clubs/lounges just in the area if not the rest of town.
In the end the place is fine, however, if not because of its location than because one wouldn't go there for a brief engagement anyway. It's definitely a Saturday afternoon, football watching place where you buy a couple pitchers and essentially have NO agenda for 150 minutes. All the more time to oggle the waitstaff.
Didn't even get served. – We waited for over 30 minutes for service and the service was just terrible. The staff was not responsive so I do not recommend!
great outdoor patio, friendly staff, good bar food-love the mini-burgers
