    We had a great time here! The magicians were funny and very entertaining. There were two magicians during the main show and if you have premium seats you can see an additional show which I feel was worth it. You are entertained from the time you enter until you leave. Before the show, there are magicians who do card tricks while you wait for the show to begin. The venue was filled with nostalgic pictures and was really a nice size so that everyone was able to see up close. The audience interaction adds humor to the show. I would definitely recommend stopping here if you’re in Chicago.

    My wife and I took 15 and 10 y.o. to Io’s Comedy Sportz’s family -friendly show. (Other programs are more adult-friendly.) We loved it. Our kids loved it. It was so impressive to see these gifted actors transferring comic energy to the audience. Impossible to describe but just very funny improv. Highly recommend.

    Haymarket is a pub on W. Randolph Street that we recently stopped by while waiting for our table at Au Cheval across the street to become available. They have a good sized indoor seating area as well as a few tables near the bar. Several tellies behind the bar showing sports games.

    Drink list includes a good selection of handcraft beers. We enjoyed a porter and blond that both pretty good, easy to enjoy while watching a bit of baseball and basketball on the evening. Would be happy to pop back in for another round if in the area if in the area again.

    Andrea was amazing server. Super sweet, a joy to have on our layover. She looked out for us flight attendants and really made the experience great. Def recommend the pasta 10/10 and her hospital was definitely a 10/10 so if Andrea is working you will be taken well care of no problem!

    If you're looking for live jazz music, this is the place to be. It's never crowded even when it's full, the acoustics are great they have wonderful cocktails and it's not expensive. We've been going often since they opened. We have never been disappointed.

    The experience is really crazy! And even if you haven't watched the tv show, it's still a typical suburban American bar to visit. There's a sports rerun and the atmosphere is very cool and typical.
    There are bar goodies to buy: $20
    The waitress was very nice to us!

    Great customer service, staff was nice & friendly. Bowling was fun however they need new bowling balls and pool tables. Had the buffalo wings, they were small & not the best quality.
    Pricey but Happy Hour is optional.

    In town for Riot Fest and checked it out. If you love IPA’s, this is the place for you. The taproom is located in the middle of the brewery on the upper level which gives you great views of the brewery. The long heavy wooden tables and benches make it easy to gather. It reminds you a bit of being in a place like the Hofbrauhaus in Munich Germany. Good implementation of Ovid protocals. Even better beer

    Service and staff were great!
    Well drinks are adequately priced but any mid or top shelf liquor was ridiculously expensive. Other than that the biggest issue we had was that the women’s restrooms were up two full flights of stairs from the main bar.

    I haven’t been here since pre-pandemic times. And it was great to be back.
    I love this tiki bar. My hobby is visiting tiki bars all over North America and the Caribbean.
    Elias served up some great tiki drinks!!!
    We also had the steak skewers, and they were delicious.
    They have a great little gift shop, and I bought a few souvenir lapel/hat pins.
    This club is off the beaten path, but a must visit when in Chicago!
    Happy Tiki Tiki…
    Enjoy.

    This was our first visit to Moody Tongue and we were very impressed. Part of the appeal was that they offer a beer pairing in which beer is paired with many very complex and subtle dishes. We are used to wine pairings but a beer pairing was worth a try. The dining room has a dark, more utilitarian ambiance which suits the theme of the restaurant. One thing that worried me was that neither my wife nor I like very hoppy beers and those are currently the rage. I figured we'd be giving the beer steward a tough job but it turned out that no one of the beers was hoppy. They were sour or fruity etc. and we were really impressed by how well they paired with the food and how well we liked all of them. All of the courses were delicious, complex, and quite different from all of the others. There is true artistry going on here! The only issue we had is that sometimes the next course of both food and wine would come before we had finished the beer we had for the previous course(s). The server(s) should communicate with the kitchen a bit more in case customers are slower to finish a particular glass. There is also a sizable amount of beer consumed with the tasting! I wouldn't recommend having any other drinks shortly before the dinner.

    Fun neighborhood place. A few blocks south of the museum campus on Michigan Ave. On a Saturday late afternoon, it was pleasantly busy (and somewhat less pleasantly noisy). They had about 6 beers on tap, about half of which seemed like they were from other local breweries. I had two pints, both of which were good. Prices were a little steep. Service was a little slow and bland being as it seemed there was only one guy tending the bar at a fairly busy time. It looks like they are kid and dog friendly. Worth a stop if you're a craft beer afficianado visiting the area.

    A fantastic fun find. Younger me, that played some of those games on release, will be very angry at older me for this: the music could be a couple decibels lower - it was just at a level that made conversation more of an effort that it should've been. Good selection of beer. The hurricane fries are either the best invention ever or the weirdest (nori flakes on potato is a new one for me).... not sure. Will probably have to try them again ;-).
