Lincoln Park sports bar with plenty of team spirit--and even more TVs. – The Scene
Established in 1984, this hunting lodge-turned-sports bar occupies a corner space on the Armitage-Lincoln-Sedgwick triangle. The entryway widens onto a spacious room with large-projection screens and many smaller monitors (around 40 total--all broadcasting athletics). Photographs of famous sports figures and neon beer signs line the walls. The post-collegiate crowd appreciates Gamekeepers' unusual inclusion of sound for most sports broadcasts.
Besides a laid-back feel and a late-night license, the bar boasts relationships with nearly a dozen alumni groups from universities across the country, so expect spirited indigenous events--like an authentic crawfish boil from the LSU folks--in addition to regular sports-related revelry. Fifteen drafts and almost two dozen bottles should satisfy beer lovers, though cocktails of almost all kinds are available. An adequate food menu includes typical appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, wraps, pizzas and some pasta.
Best Sportsbar in Chicago – I have been coming here for years, and i still love this place! The people are awesome, the atmosphere kicks ass, and the place just rocks. Every time I come I have a good time!
Great Sports Bar – "This is the place I go to watch baseball ,football and NCAA basketball. They have MLB extra innings,NFL Sunday ticket and NBA full court, plus tons of tv's, so you can almost always get the game that you want to see on one of them. The staff is friendly and polite, and there are a couple of bartenders who are great to talk to. I love this place.
A SNAPSHOT OF HEAVEN! – 40 tv's, beautiful people and some great food... what else could a girl ask for! The service was good, but the food was excellent and timely. This place has it's act together and they are my fav sports bar. Had a nice time and I'll be back. U da man Gamekeepers.
Must try it – "Gamekeepers! Stopped by on my way out and never left!! Just great beer and drinks, the staff is young, fun, and offers entertainment throughout the evening. A refreshed atmosphere that gets my vote for best sports bar!"
What a SPORTS BAR!!!!! – This place is it....I was there for the Bears playoff game and it was a blast! The service and food were outstanding - THANKS Mel. This place was happening all night long - I'm not kidding, we got there at 2pm. and stayed until 4 am. Nevber thought a bunch of trixies would enjoy an all nighter at Gamekeepers! Check this place out and see for yourself. (Trixie love)
Stay Away - Horrible Service – Used to go here and it was a good bar - however it keeps slipping.
Just went for the Bears-Packers game. You would think a Chicago Sports Bar might be expecting some business on that day.
I ordered a burger at 1:15 and found out at 2:30 after several complaints, that they had run out of burgers. At that point someone was "out" getting more. I just canceled the order and left. Drinks were averaging about a half hour to get.
It was busy but for a bar it wasn't that full. Barely anyone at the actual bar and nobody standing, but tables were pretty full.
Manager was no help. Waitress actually overcharged us by putting the food from the table next to us on our bill.
Stay Away from Gamekeepers. There are plenty of other better bars.
Great Sports Bar – Friendly atmosphere, great gathering place to watch the games, excellent food. Bring your friends!
