Great lunch experience, cheap Jameson shots, beer and absolutely delicious nachos. Sure Covid has made the dining experience a little weird all the way around, but come get some delicious nachos, and drinks and relax a bit.

The Fifty/50 is a sports bar with all the trimmings. Located at 2047 West Division Street in Chicago's energetic Wicker Park neighborhood, it features two full-service bars, three levels, more TVs than you can count and an extensive menu of made-from-scratch items and old recipes...that make this bar/restaurant a go-to destination for baseball, football, basketball, hockey and even soccer events. My wife and I stopped by for lunch and a Premier League soccer match so the space wasn't as crowded as it normally is for Bears or Packers. We started with the house's signature chicken wings with a special ranch sauce, creamy tomato soup and Caesar salad with Romaine lettuce, avocado, tortilla strips, goat cheese, parmesan and Caesar/lime dressing. My wife couldn't resist a steak sandwich, a honey-orange teriyaki marinated eight-ounce skirt steak topped with onion rings on garlic bread. One of a kind. I opted for the Big Herd burger, all-nature Bison with shipped Merkts cheddar, sauteed mushrooms and pickled red onions and peppers on a potato bun. Make that two of a kind. With fries. Wash it all down with frosty mugs of root beer. It's like sitting on the 50-yard-line.More

Talked my wife and son out of going somewhere else so we could go here because I liked it when we went in the morning once. This time it was a Sunday late afternoon and it was busy. So the street level was packed and...the hostess sat us up stairs which was fine other than a big fan blowin on us on a cold day. We waited...and we waited...and we waited...and we even waited some more and no one waited on us. Not even a glass of water. There were other people up there eating and we saw a girl on the other side of the room come and grab some plates but we were invisible. I finally went downstairs and spoke to a bartender who assured me he'd have someone come up and take care of us. So we waited and waited....well you get it. finally I said screw it lets go somewhere else. I mentioned to the blonde hostess what happened and it was like a "oh well" response. We went a few doors down to The Big Pour where the food and drinks were great and the service was top notch. Totally disappointed in this place. I tweeted them before doing a public review but no response.More

Visited during a Packer game and had a blast. Bear fans are the best. They offer free valet parking for Packer fans and even a brat special.

Had dinner with my husband at The Fifty/50 on Saturday night around 7:30pm. There was certainly a crowd when we arrived but we were seated right away. To drink, I had the Private Car which was good. My husband had the Sangria and it wasn't...his favorite. To eat, I had the Nachos with chicken. I was super excited about this because they looked absolutely delicious. Unfortunately they had almost no flavor and the chips seemed stale. I would not order this again. My husband had the Four Courser with Sweet Potato Fries which was very good. I ditched my Nachos and shared his (it is surely big enough). The service here was good, the waitress checked on us often and we didn't have to wait a long time for anything. The noise level was very annoying however. I knew it wasn't going to be a quiet place but the tables were getting very rowdy and outright yelling. Not necessarily the restaurants fault, but if you're looking for semi-quiet, don't go here at night.More

Stopped in for lunch on the 4th of July. Very friendly staff the outdoor seating was really nice and the food was great. We had the wings and split a sandwich. I was glad we decided to split it. The wings were huge and so...was the sandwich no way could we have eaten two of them. Highly recommend this place!!!More

Great experience here. Staff was courteous and friendly. Wings were great and burger was amazing. Sweet potato fries were suburb as well. Restaurant is open to outside with sidewalk seating. Cracked up at some of the pictures\sayings on the wall.

50% of the time The Fifty/50 is a good time. Good crowds, good music, good drinks. The other 50% of the time it feels much like any other sports bar in the neighborhood.

Don't know what we were thinking, but our group of 9 showed up at 5:30 on a Saturday night to grab dinner before going to the Bulls game. No reservations, and it was hopping. They were super nice and gave us a table that was...actually reserved but not needed until later since we were going to be leaving for the game. We were upstairs. It was a little dark. There were huge tvs everywhere tuned to a variety of games. We ordered cheese fries, 2 plates of 50 wings (a variety), and a couple sandwiches. The food was tasty and abundant and the beer list very satisfying. It was a great time.More
