Re: “Gallery Cabaret

A hidden gem. One of the all time greatest neighborhood bars in the Midwest. Friendliest and most knowledgeable bartenders on weekends and Mondays.

Re: “Gallery Cabaret

Note the unpretentious vibe. Growing craft beer + cider list at a good value. Cheap. If it wasn't for the owner Ken's passion for artistry, nothing of this caliber would exist in this (and surrounding) area/s. Performances range from destined for stardom to off the wall shenanigans. Eclectic. This art-filled, off the beaten path tavern has seen performances by, now famous, rockers and comedians. Best Open Mic in Chicago on Sundays with FREE customer appreciation BUFFET. The quintessential dive bar that exceeds expectations. (The Template for Cole's Bar on Milwaukee another awesome place.)

Re: “Evil Olive

I hope the manager sees this. Some built guy came around the corner and misheard me speaking with my friend and began to rant and told me and my buddys to get the fuck out of the line. Did not want to talk and so did not the bouncers. Im very unhappy and feel disrespected. Im looking forward to file more complaints

Re: “Ward Eight

I love this place! The food is great, reasonably priced, and the drinks are inventive and elegant. On Monday nights they have a blues combo - Diamond Jim Green. Music is groovin' and mellow. Acoustic instruments and fabulous rhythms. Everything there is a great blend.

Re: “Scratch Kitchen & Lounge

This is the second time I have experience bad service at this restaurant...the first bad experience was several months ago, it took them an 1 1/2 hour to bring our food.. Today 8/3/16 @ approximately 6:15pm, our entire order was wrong, when I asked our waitress she was not sure what the food was suppose to look like...WRONG, the server should be familiar with the menu...I ask for a manager, a tall man with a child came out and said "yeah the messed your order, 10% off, and proceeded to walk across the street...we were in shock, and asked the waitress who was that, and she said the owner...wtf...no apology, no would you like what your order, NOTHING...what restaurant do this...none, but SCRATCH...I drove from Wrigleyville, to give it another try...I am starting to take it personal...

Re: “Bruno's

Is anyone old enough to remember bartender "Tom O'Malley"---who I understood was at bartender at Bruno's in the mid 1980's?.....I believe he transferred to Bruno's after having been a stalwart at Hamilton's Bar on North Broadway just a hop and skip across from Mundelein College, later absorbed by Loyola. I saw a LOT of Tom O'Malley in the early 1970's at Hamilton's and have always wondered what happened to him or if he's still alive. I'd like to send him a thank you for looking past my doctored ID; if it weren't for that I wouldn't be married to a Mundelein girl for 40+ years.

Re: “Longman & Eagle

Our dinner last night at L&E was a bad experience and we won’t go back.

I ordered the roasted cauliflower and requested the cucumber raita (it’s a sauce) on the side. When the food runner brought it to the table there was no sauce. As I started to say it was missing, the waiter came running over to tell me the chef refused to make it that way. So to be clear, the chef didn’t refuse to make it without the sauce but refused to put it on the side. Though apologetic the waiter made no effort to correct the situation so I told him I wanted to talk to the manager. The manager also apologized and said next time we came in they would make it right. When I asked what that meant the manager continued making vague statements, like a politician.

Understandably, we decided not to order dessert. When we got the check my dinner and the drinks were comped unexpectedly; however, the mood was ruined and it still cost us $40+.

Re: “Joe's on Broadway

Sam Smith is a moron -- or at least someone who's really bad at reading comprehension. We're not talking about "younger kids" -- that's the whole point. Stay in the penal colony Sammmmmyyy.

Re: “Buddy Guy's Legends

Possibly the worst blues club in Chicago. Tourist money harvesting machine, not a authentic place. Rude, very aggressive crew, club looks like McDonald's with few guitars hanging on the wall. Policy is "no reservations", but the best tables are always reserved - for friends and family. Buddy is friendly only from the stage, repeatedly saying "fuck" any other word to force public into laughter. Face to face - it's an arrogant asshole walking around the club like a mickey mouse, with two gorillas, half step behind. Welcome to the Disneyland of the blues...
