We came back to Chicago after being gone for 16 years and Uncommon Ground was #1 on our list of places to eat at. The menu and location have changed somewhat, but the food is still as delicious as ever!

We ate here for brunch and enjoyed our meal. The sunrise sammy was delicious. The farmer's market scramble was ok, not amazing (just tomatoes were added in from the "farmer's market"). Our server didn't think to give us silverware nor a teaspoon with the coffee, but an alert manager took care of that. Maybe they had had a busy morning,... More

From the minute we walked in and were led to our outdoor table, we were hooked. The drinks are different and delicious. I had the Lemon Ginger Martini which I'd go back to the restaurant just for that! The food was fresh and wonderfully seasoned, as a matter of fact they were growing tomatoes and peppers in the flower boxes... More

We stopped here before a Cubs game, looking for a quiet spot to grab a drink. We didn't end up eating, but did get a few drinks. The bartender was knowledgeable about the house beer selection and drinks for good recommendations. All of the food we saw looked yummy and if I'm in the neighborhood again, I'll try it out!

We rented a house near Wrigley and came to Uncommon for one dinner. They grow tomatoes, basil, mint, chives, etc and their salads looked really good. Unfortunately I ordered a hamburger and they would only cook it well done - not good. The fries were tepid when they arrived. Really good beers though!

Even though it was before a Cubs game, it was not too crowded (the threat of rain may have had something to do with that). Kevin, our server, was quite nice and helpful. We have been here many times before and were not disappointed. The roast chicken was excellent - moist and tender. My wife had the gnocchi, which was... More

This is a casual storefront restaurant near Wrigley Field on Chicago's North Side. Most everything on the menu appears to be organic, and that's both a plus (quality?) and a minus (cost). Many of the spirits are local. The so-called craft beers were all flavored, and that isn't something I like. Stick to the German purity law! Fruits belong in... More

Met up with friends who live in Indiana. Chicago has some great neighborhoods and the area around Wriggly Field is pretty cool. We couldn't get onto the field because of some concert that evening, so we wandered up the street and my friends brought us all to here since they come here every time they come to a game. Friendly... More

Even though this was a short walk from Wrigley Field, it wasn't too busy 2-3 hours before the concert. That made it nice and relaxing to have a couple beers and dinner before the show. I had a chicken sandwich and my wife had a nice salad with chicken on it. Both meals were fresh and tasty. The beer was... More

My girlfriend and I went there for a brunch on Friday. We both very much enjoyed our meals. The server was great and accommodated my request for a single pancake. Great coffee and beer. Cool vibe. 46 bucks for two meals with a side, coffee and beer. Definitely recommend

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighbourhood Profile
Wrigleyville
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
