Good bar...GREAT FOOD!!! – I read the other reviews and wanted to add my own. Went in there and loved the place. Perfect little corner bar, clean, great bartender and waitress, excellent food...and then, there's the owner.
I had no idea who the owner was, but when he was in there, he made sure you could easily figure it out. Although he didn't talk to my girlfriend and I, his presence alone was all we could handle. My girlfriend thought he was just another employee and was laughing at the bartender about what a jerk he was. The bartender then explained he was the owner while he rolled his eyes in the back of his head. Apparently, his employees don't think very highly of him either.
Whatever the case, the guy must be doing something right. Just hope the next time I go in, that d-bag isn't in there.
Nice Clean Chicago Bar – This has to be one of the cleanest bars I have ever been in. The staff does a great job. The menu has you typical bar food plus some added unique options. They have a mini sandwich option whichis terrific. Good crowd and friendly service. Good to watch a game in or hang out late night. I have always had a good time there. Maybe the previous reviewer had a bad day. I have been there several times and have found the owner to be quite friendly and even funny.
Nice Little Bar Ruined By Ownership – This place is a cool little bar. Nice interior, pretty good tv's for sports, pretty good food, and a nice staff with the exception of an owner who is a complete tool. He is so painful it's unbelievable. The bar is located along Ashland so most of the other bars near it are terrible, so I can see why people would resort to going there. Keep heading north to Belly's, Fizz, or anything else near Belmont.
The neighborhood corner bar as it was meant to be: simple, unpretentious and friendly. – In Short:
Updated watering hole features classic tavern décor--tall, golden tin ceilings, a huge solid wood back bar, no nonsense dark greens and browns--with modern amenities like flat plasma screens and a digital juke box. A mixed-age after work crowd enjoys conversation and a decent selection of drafts, while weekend night socializing is more boisterous and shoulder to shoulder. The food menu includes standard sandwiches and surprises like spinach salads and a Tuscan caesar.
