Now don't be confused. They have changed the name to Fatduck Tavern but the place is the same. Very nice staff. Very warm, cozy atmosphere. Varied menu. We had burgers and fries and liked them a lot. Meat is high quality and delicious. Fries a bit greasy but tasty. Salads are very fresh and dressing very good. I had split... More

My husband had the brisket sampler and said his was very good. I had the shrimp tempura special & was disappointed, the shrimp was very chewy and my fries were under done and cold

Stopped in for late lunch after flying into town. Had the fatburger and washed it down with an IPA. Very tasty. Wonderful neighborhood ambiance. We stopped here as my host eats regularly here and raves about it. He was not kidding.

Fries were cold, sandwich was just OK. We felt like they would have preferred if we had gone elsewhere. We might tty again, but probably not. Too many other good choices in FP.

First time in, had the Brisket sandwich that was amazing. My daughter had the Bacon Mac n' Cheese. I generally don't care for Mac n' Cheese, but this was absolutely fantastic! Put an order of Duck Fat fries with it and you can't go wrong. Will definitely be back!

We were heading to a Blackhawks game, and decided to stop here instead of trying to get into a place closer to the UC. Had a great bowl of Black bean turkey chili, and loved the duck fat fries. They have a nice selection of beers. Good service, reasonable prices, and an overall fun experience.

I heard a lot of great things from friends who had visited. The restaurant was very popular so expect a wait. The food is pretty trendy and I wasn't too sure of what I was ordering. A unique experience.

You wouldn't know it from the outside, but very good food. I especially love the sliders, wedge salad, and of course, the duck fat fries. The owners are very nice and helpful
