General Info
Located on a corner in the heart of Lincoln Park, Four Farthings Tavern and Grill has welcomed patrons to fill pints and plates for half a century. Though the tavern was originally a quaint space with a ceiling only reaching nine feet, it has grown through the decades. Today, it is an up scale resturant where customers can uncover something different every day-a sidewalk brunch on Sundays, Trivia on Wednesdays and karaoke on Thursdays and Saturdays, and live music on Friday. The bar keeps their signature wings on special and televisions abuzz with sports on the weekends- catching all the action of College Sports (BIG 10 Conference & Michigan Booster Bar) & NFL football on the weekends. Plasters of photos of old Chicago across walls paneled in centuries-old wood (which was imported from Wisconsin's Kimberly Clark mansion and milled onsite for a custom fit). The Grill Room was added in 1983 and features fresh steaks and seafood along with pastas and daily specials. The bar side offers lighter fare and outdoor seating at our beautiful patio! The bar and party room are popular spots to view sporting events or meet friends to relax. We are excited to continue the proud history of Four Farthings and put our own touches on an old favorite!

Excellent Lincoln Park Restaurant and Bar

Every time I visit Chicago, I dine at The Four Farthings. Usually I eat the crab cakes which are exquisite. Last time I ordered the talapia which was the best I have ever had. The vegetable selections are delicious and very fresh...I usually order the green beens. I think they must have invented ""wine by the glass"" because their wine selections are numerous and reasonably priced. It is great fun to eat outside in the warm months and experience Lincoln Park dining at its finest . It can be busy but I never mind waiting. The bar is always fun. I have reserved the private room on several occasions for birthdays. The staff has always gone out of their way to make our event successful. I really am looking forward to the next trip to Chicago...this summer I hope.

Great Live Music!

This was an amazing experience. It cost me no money at the door to enjoy Scott Besaw. I suggest all my friends come to the next show. It is on April 3rd this Friday!

Incredible Neighborhood Party Bar

If you like live music, free party room, great beer, and amazing local flavor, you must check out this place! We threw a 40th birthday party for our girl friend that started out in the back room (which is free!) with amazing service from a great waitstaff. The live music was great and before the night was over, everyone was dancing in the aisles! What a way to spend a freezing night in Chicago!

Great Staff & Great Free Party Room

I was throwing a going away party on a budget, but I didn't want the party to come off as ""budgeted"", so I searched the web for expensive or free party rooms/areas. Four Farthings came up on the top of the list and I called and booked their free party room well in advance of my party. They allowed me to order the food the day before and the drinks were on a ""cash bar"" type basis. I got a little nervouse as the party got closer b/c I hadn't seen the room or had the food, but I was utterly pleased with my event. The party room was perfect--not too big and not too small. Plenty of seating and tables for food. We were able to decorate the area ourselves. We had a server, Danielle, who took care of us the entire evening and made sure we had everything we needed. I talked to both the owners, Bill and Jon, and they were so helpful and willing to accommodate. The restaurant and bar are very nice. The food is delicious. The drinks are excellent and fairly priced. We all had a great time and I wll definitely go to Four Farthings again.

They take care of their patrons

We needed a place for a birthday party and learned they had a FREE party room in back. The room was not large but easily fit nearly 40 people who could sit or stand around a large table in the center. The manager recommended that we order appetizers as we needed them. This worked very well. Appetizers were generous in portion, fresh, hot, and delicious. The service was excellent. Servers took drink orders and worked the room to make sure we always had what we needed. When our group got a little bigger, Four Farthings opened the side doors where we could sit at their tables and enjoy a beautiful evening. The tab was more than reasonable for all the food we managed to put away. Loved the charming atmosphere and will certainly return to sample the main menu from their inviting dining room. Valet parking was a major plus but I don't think my husband tipped the valet enough! Thank you Four Farthings for a great evening and for your excellent hospitality.

Tremendous food

Really, really good. The one bad review on this board, is because the place was already full. What does that mean? It means its good. Sorry pal, but the world isn't here to serve you! Go for lunch, try a special.

You can't go wrong here

I really like this place, the food is very good (try the steak/mushroom salad or the steaks). The atmosphere is nice and the service is capable and attentive. I would recommend this place when you are looking for a place to have some good food and a few drinks.

Great group place

A few nights ago I took a bunch of friends from out of town to Four Farthings for dinner and drinks. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the crowd was great.
