We have taken out of towners here a few times because it is the famous "Goose Island" and we wanted to try out the food. We were pleasently surprised! Really good appetizers and of course beer. Good for groups!

Pros: location, atmosphere, food & drink, PARKING

Nothing unique about this place or the food. The food and ambiance resembles any Bennigans or Applebee's. I enjoy Goose Islands brew but this poor attempt at a restaurant was disappointing to say the least. With all the great places to eat in this city why bother with something so uninspired.

Pros: Goose Island beer

Cons: the awful menu, its garbage

I was in Chicago briefly a few weeks ago and I heard good things about Goose Island. I decided to check it out and was more than pleased. The beer... mmmm... delicious and unique (the matilda is superb) and the drinks are reasonably priced (usually a dollar per Alc. %). I had the fish tacos, which were very good, not at all what I would call "bar food". The service was lively and firendly - a nice place to whittle three hours away.

If you read most of these reviews you will notice one consistent theme: the lack of service. Food is not much better. Restaurant is dirty (creepy crawlers at the bar). Beer is "craft" but not worth the $$$. Save your money and stay at home.

If you're new to Goose Island Beer, you can come by and sample three of their beers for only $5 (if I remember correctly, they are 6oz samples). The patio is nice and surprisingly good for a family night out. Even though its on the kids menu, the baked mac and cheese is delicious!

This place has good food but it is quite pricey. The turkey burgers were good but the beer cost $7 a glass. They were small glasses too. I would recommend heading to Rock Bottom instead

First timers, new Chicagoans. Ordered beers, very good (wheat, red ale, lincoln park lager). Bartenders grouchy, but busy. Server seemed "put out" at get-go, was curt. No descriptions, no suggestions. Ordered beers, nachos, burgers. Very good. Burgers seemed a little undercooked (medium was super pink), but tasty (mushroom swiss, stilton). Good nacos, nice portion, unique presentation....lotsa jalapenos. Server irritated at anything we asked for, never checked back, never brought requested boxes (busser later brought), left sitting long after finished, never smiled once, and rolled eyes when stopped and handed credit card. Returned charge slips, but never provided bill. Noted on charge slip her horrible attitude (tip was low), she responded with dirty looks. Will NOT return, will NOT bring guests when they come to town. Many places in Chicago w/ great burgers, good service, and many have Goose Island on tap.

Pros: Good Beer, Good Food, Decent Parking

Cons: Poor Server Attitude, Slow Service

Although I agree the service is not the best in the world at Goose Island, it is a Brewery. They specialize in beer not small talk. The food is delicious, and the beers are better. I highly reccomend Goose Island if you like local beer.

It is rare that I take time to sit down and review a restaurant. It has to be (a) extremely noteworthy or (b) extremely bad. Unfortunately, this brewpub falls into the latter category mainly because of the exceptionally poor service. I was in over the weekend for lunch and some drinks at the bar. Our server ignored us even after making eye contact and verbally acknowledging that we required service. Finally, we spoke with the manager who apologized and (after asking our new waiter) compensated us for our troubles. None of this changed how we felt when we left -- vowing to never return.

I have been going to this brew pub for years and it used to be a pretty good place for lunch and still is a wonderful place for hand crafted beer. Unfortunately, as with many establishments nowadays, they have allowed lackluster service to overshadow everything. I have had to wait 20(+) minutes for a server on numerous occasions. When the food came it had to be sent back. No water, menus, or silverware without requesting it. Warm beer at the bar. You name it. Save your money: buy it in a bottle and take it home with you.

Great beer at this... the best brew pub in the city. I would have to concur with the other review on this site regarding the service. I am a regular at this establishment and it is rare that the bartender will ask you if you would like water or anything else for that matter. It used to be a lot different here once upon a time but I believe they have lost their focus.

This brewpub has great beer but everything else spoils it. The staff are extremely inattentive to the point of absurdity. I was in with friends and was very embarassed by the treatment we received. Twenty minutes for a server who acted like she was doing us a favor.

I had a beer here once that had a hint of bananas! I really liked it and got a large bottle to take home. The food was ok, nothing special about burger and fries anyway.
