When it comes to Southern cuisine and/or BBQ, Barn & Company should not be your go-to. And do NOT order one of the few salads on the menu, you'll regret it.
Great Events and Sports Bar – This place always has new and creative events going on. Had Linney-Naughton Palooza in November which had cheap specials and jello wrestling. Always something going on with great service. I've had a private party here also and the management worked well to set it up and got the private rooms upstairs. Also, during weekdays it's a good place to watch the games with cheap weekly specials. Will come back again soon!
What a party! – I was dragged out by my brother to the watch the Super Bowl party to this bar. I'm not a big sports girl but this bar threw a party. It was a great time, and they kept me busy with Flippy Cup so I didn't have to pretend to watch the game. I met some fun people, and will probably make my way back on Wednesday, I was informed they have a kegger party and more Flippy Cup.
Don't EVER Go to This Bar – We threw a fundraiser party here for Rebuilding Together, a non-profit group which provides free home repairs to poor neighborhoods. It was never explained to us that we needed to reach 20 people minimum to have our portion of the cover come back to our group (we had 18 show up). One of the managers, Mike Emmick, asked if we ever got anything in writing (which we didn't) and then pocketed the money that was supposed to go back to Rebuilding Together. It was a small amount of money that would have gone directly to help a poor woman in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago. I have no idea how Mike sleeps at night or how I could ever tell anyone to EVER go to this bar. What a complete bunch of pompous low-lifes.
Laid-back Lincoln Park professionals grab a bite and catch the game at this roomy neighborhood hangout. – The Scene
With its name in lights above the entrance, this relaxed restaurant and bar beckons a well-groomed crowd of locals, who gather around wooden tables and fill in at elevated booths to unwind after work and socialize on weekend nights. Wall-mounted plasma TVs keep sports fans happy with everything from basketball to figure skating. A curtain of metal chains loosely divides the space; bars along both sides allow for speedy service.
"Eat Well. Drink Better" is the motto here, and the Grand Central delivers with reasonably priced zucchini-corn quesadillas, Cold Stone Creamery ice cream, and an extensive list of libations ranging from red and white sangria with fresh fruit to specialty martinis and 12 draft beers. A DJ spins rock, hip-hop and techno at conversation-friendly levels, adding a boost of energy to the already buzzing atmosphere.
The Grand Central – I know this place is supposed to be the new place to be in Lincoln Park, but I would rather stay home. I had a private party there, and it was the worst experience hosting a private party I have ever had. I have hosted several parties in bars all around the city, and I have never encountered such a rude and unaccommodating "upper management" at any location, EVER. I know that its a new location, and they still need to work out the kinks but this was unacceptable. The bar was overcrowded, overpriced and the people were just plain rude!
