I stopped in to Bad Dog Tavern for a bite before a concert I was attending accross the street. I had just arrived from the Detroit area and was hungy! I found the place a little dark on inside from the middle of the bar back but was greeted by a friendly hostess and seated by the open windows at front of the bar. Could see much better there. The menue looked yummy and the drinks sounded great. My waitress came to take my drink and food orders and was very pleasant as well and was happy to help me select a drink. The food didn't take too long to arrive. Looked great tasted great! I ordered the Pesto Chicken Sandwich which had cheese and roasted red peppers on it as well. There was some of the seed/membrane on one of the pepper strips and could've used a bit more of the pesto but overall the sandwich was tasty. Tender chicken, plenty of cheese, fresh bread. The sandwich was served with yummy lightly seasoned fries that also had bits of (what I'm guessing was) parmisan cheese and a crisp dill pickle spear. My drink was delicious as well (got some kind of tropical mix - sorry I can't remmeber the name of it). Bad Dog Tavern is in a neat part of town so it was also fun to watch the people that were walking around the neighborhood. A nice mix of folks. Good, friendly service. Fresh, yummy food. Good seating. Very reasonably priced for Chicago!
I also wrote this review on Yelp.com: I was fortunate enough to hire Tyler Grey Professional Bartending Services for a last minute private party I had in my home recently and was very impressed. First off most other services wanted to gouge me for booking a party last minute; not cool. I found this service through some friends who had used this business for their wedding reception. The bartenders were great, professional, friendly and the guests loved them. The were on-time, had everything set up before the guests got there; I have no complaints. I'd use these guys again with no hesitation.
Awesome spot for a business lunch. There are numerous decisions on the menu so it doesn't make a difference who you're bringing, I'm certain they'll discover something they need to attempt. I attempted the Turkey Club and it was a Big sandwich with Roasted turkey, fresh lettuce, new tomatoes, and firm bacon. The french fries were fresh on the outside and delicate within - simply like any great french fries ought to be. The service is quick also - awesome for a business lunch. I profoundly suggest this spot for an easygoing business lunch tuned in!
This bar plays great music and the bartenders are awesome... However the bouncer JOE of the bar is a BIG especially women. He uses his power of a man to physically abuse women. He jumped on a women in this bar a few months back that led to the death of her son and also busted a women head with a bottle. If you can't take what a person say to in reply of what you've said than maybe that's not the job for you. If this abuse continues to happen I guarantee you Papa Jo will end up loosing his business and several law suites on his hands.
Had our girls night at this place and we will definitely be back!! The feel of the place is pretty cool, music is ok (could be better) and the drinks... AMAZING!! We ordered a little bit of everything and they were delicious but super strong. Highly recommend to go while the kitchen is open so that you can snack while you drink. The staff was very friendly. The only down side: it is hard to find because the entrance is in an alley, and there may be a line to get it (not cool when it's freezing outside) Overall grade: B++
This is the best rooftop lounge i have ever been too. This experience was absolutely amazing. No feeling compares. I went there on a Sunday night, its the most chic trendy live experience that you will ever have. This place is incredible. If you are visiting Chicago, you have to visit this rooftop lounge. It is perfect, the vibe, the music and DJ, the people, the view. The Roof is everything and then some. Don't miss out on this experience!!!!!
I'm just visiting Chicago this is my first time and I thought they had outstanding customer service. The waiters and waitresses were really nice and the manager let us know when we came for brunch but there's about 15 more minutes before it closed for lunch but as long as we got our order and they would still make us breakfast which I thought was nice the food was really good it had a really great atmosphere definitely recommend checking it out
We found this gem of a place by accident. The food is awesome. Went during the week for lunch. We were going to walk out we were the only ones in there, no bartender behind the bar. Thank goodness she came out. We live on the Northside of Chicago and stopped there on our way home from IN. Great burgers, kabobs, homemade potato salad and coleslaw. They give you enough food for 3 meals.
My Place has been a West Rogers park neighborhood tavern since 1971. We have recently made some changes and have a new manager that will be making important decisions and refreshing the overall experience at the tavern. I will review with higher star values once we get there.. Look for drink specials and some remodeling as we ask the neighbors to make "My Place" your place for fun.
Great place to go for weekend brunch. They have a Bloody Mary and mimosa bar with great garnishments and homemade tomato juice and variety juices. The food is decent. Not very family friendly as all the tables are high tops. We went once in the evening and the bartenders were very friendly and offered great suggestions on drinks.
