this is one of my favorite places, they know their patrons. Food is good and music on Friday and Saturday is a nice plus. No cover charge for listening to good music.

Never a cover, very good service, and the food is great too. We have several favorites that we try to see whenever they play, but generally have enjoyed all the music

My wife and I stopped here on Valentines Day for cocktails and a bite to eat on the way home from the IMS in Rosemont. Not every crowded, but warm and inviting just the same.

Had a great time listening to the music with drinks on a Saturday night at this bar/restaurant. Come for the music and stay late!

Went on a busy Saturday night- and service took forever. Interesting eclectic crowd- the space is much nicer since they have expanded. The food(which took 50 minutes- I timed it) was ok. The steak sandwich was tough and overcooked. Good music place and wish they had a better beer selection.

Unassuming and great place to have lunch on weekend. Really good sandwiches and burgers, usual pub fare but better quality. Some beers on tap...mostly IPAs. Decent music at night. Friendly people.

Mac's place is phenomenal. Everything my fiancee and I had there was top notch. But the real star of this restaurant is the ambiance. From the menus to the music, I couldn't have been happier. Until I saw the name of their Po Boy---Dr. John, one of my favorite musicians. Well done!
