Shrimp and Grits were delicious! They had a good amount of heat and the grits were a bit crispy. We got a table with a good view of the stage and the music was not to loud.

Regular food you will find in a quick service restaurant. Nothing special and the service was plain and cold.

Some interesting menu items, but not a huge selection. French fries weren't worth getting as a side dish though.

Had lunch here. Good selection, burgers, sandwiches, flatbreads... Good cocktails. Advantage was we were staying at the Hotel Chicago and could charge to our room. Had the Pulled Pork sandwich. Good quantity of meat. Sauce was not very tangy. Service was very good.

Had lunch here and it was really good. Much better than I expected. I had the Jalapeno cornbread which was amazing and the Schnitzel which was okay. Prices were reasonable for downtown Chicago.

We had no reservation but we were seated anyway on the side by a very friendly waitress. They had a guitar player not singing though 'blues' though. Known american pop songs sung in his own style from like the 50's-60's. It was ok. The inside was decorated different...little funny. I could not rate it anymore because it was..okay only. Nothing...WOW.... More

We went with our 15yo daughter more for the music than for the food, but we were not disappointed. They have a good choice of plates, prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is great, the palce is very nice, the service is good. Recommended.

I went there with my wife and daughter. It was a good time, I wish I knew the name of the band, but they were very good. The atmosphere was perfect for them. Images of blues greats on the ceiling, and just some funky images on the wall. It was a good place to sit back and relax. We didn't... More

Great place to have a drink and enjoy the live music. Really enjoyed that. Music varies from really good to really good try. Service is great and prices are very good, especially during happy hour... The food however is not really matching the wife ( ;-) ), ambiance and service. Skip the chicken in any form, but try the shrimps... More
