The food and service is good. The staff is friendly. It is one of the few spots to sit down and eat a decent meal in the middle of a lot of bars. Overall, the place isn't bad.

After a show at iO, my husband and I stopped in for a beer and a sandwich. We were quick to be seated, service was ok. The food was really good, and of course they are known for their beer. We ordered a beef dip and a blue cheese burger, both really good. Definitely a good place for high-quality pub fare.

I don't know how there could be such a big difference in the two Goose Island restaurants - they share the same (or very close to the same) menu. While the Goose Island in Wrigleyville is larger and has a nice setup for watching the NFL games, the staff is off and the food preparation is horrible compared to the Clybourn location. The turkey burger we were served was not close to being done and the fish (part of fish and chips) needed literally about 5 more minutes in the fryer. While the manager took the items off the bill, our server initially was skeptical of our assertion and insisted that the burger and fish were supposed to be undercooked. This experience will also teach me a fine lesson - never pick an item off the menu by saying the following right before ordering: "Wow, I can't remember the last time I had (insert menu item)." The beer, artichoke dip, and Paulina Market meat platter were naturally excellent as they always are. I love Goose Island but recommend the Clybourn location. It?s worth noting - I'm not one to give many negative reviews - I keep those opinions to myself rather than try to negatively influence others. However, with all that has been said, I felt this review necessary.

Pros: TV's everywhere, size, location, beer, Paulina Market meat platter

Cons: food, service, parking

i was pleasantly surprised by goose island. i was wary based on its location alone- i try to avoid wrigleyville bars/restaurants at all cost. we went on a wednesday around 7, so there was no cubs game and there were hardly any people there (probably why i had such a great experience). i like goose island beer, so that was an immediate plus, and their food was surprisingly great.

Pros: attentive service, great beer, good food

Cons: parking, i imagine it's insane during cubs games/weekends

The place is very large, which is perfect given its location, and the beer is out of this world. The food is your average pub fare. Definately a must if you are into more than just Miller Lite.

Pros: Atmosphere and Beer

This is possibly the best bar food I've ever had. Awesome burgers, great specials and good apps. They really try and put their own stamp on their food, rather than have it taste like ever other bar within walking distance of the Wrigleyville location. I'm not a fan of pork, but the pulled-pork sandwiches are really good. Having said that, it is bar food so don't expect anything too upscale. It is a bar. A lot of fun during Cubs season, a lot of out-of-town fans eat there.

The beer's always good and the pub-style food is better than average. Plus, this place is loud and perfect for kids -- you don't have to worry about them making too much noise.

Editorial from

The Scene
Opened in 1999 to augment the original Lincoln Park location, this rambling, multileveled spot relies on class over character. A beautiful wooden bar, TVs of all sizes in every direction, a "legends of baseball" mural…
