Love the Cajun food and fresh salads. Great beer list and even better beer recommendations from the staff. We often do carry-out.

My roommate and I were excited about eating here after these previous reviews and what we had heard from friends. The food was just OKthe salad was good, a little too much lettuce without extras for $10 but the tuna on top was really good. I had a burger, which looked like it had been cut in 1/2 or something and I asked for avocado on top but I was charged $1 for probably an 1/8 of an avocado, the spinach side was amazing but a little too greasy. We were surprised at the total of our bill$60 for a too-small burger, a salad, and a couple of drinks. Maybe we just came on an off night, but we don't plan on going there again because it was way too expensive for it's worth.

This place is amazing. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food does amazing things for your insides. Fries could be the best in the city. Burgers are huge, and the crab cakes are dreamy. One of my all time favorites in a city of great food.

This place is easily one of my favorites. When you walk in for the first time, it might be hard to believe that a place that looks like an average (and not too occupied) neighborhood bar, but don't let the looks fool you. The seafood, and everything else I've tried, has always been great, and presentation is restaurant-quality. If you're a fan of calamari, you have to try it here; the rings are wide but not too wide, and the dipping sauce is delicious. The tilapia taco is awesome, as is the catfish. Basically, everything is good so far! Prices aren't exactly cheap, but very reasonable for the quality of the food. Since it IS a bar, don't expect a waiter in a tuxedo (or the corresponding attitude) but everybody is more than friendly. If you like seafood, and don't want to shell out the cash on Chicago's premier seafood restaurants, give this place a try and I'm confident you won't be disappointed.
