Found this place on a whim. A little hidden but a gem once found. Stopped in for dinner before catching the fireworks on the 4th. They have a outdoor patio that we sat at so really cant say much about the inside. Was sat quick...More

Visited this place while on business in Chicago. Great local bar feel with awesome food. I had the Fajitas and they were excellent. All the servers were very nice and attentive. I will be going back there when visiting in the future.

What a great neighborhood place! The diverse bar menu, beer on tap and extensive wine by the glass list is really great!

Only regulars get served, drinks are a rip off, staff acts surly to you regardless of how nice you are. Bathrooms are feces laden by 11pm and overflowing (at least men's room when I was - no lock on door but only one toilet).

We stopped in for a pre-wedding get together around 7:00pm. Our group was upstairs and it was closed off to non-wedding guests. The service was very average, we had to go up to the bar several times to ask for drinks, menus, and napkins even...More

Off the beaten path, Jefferson Tap has great service (especially at the tables), good food, wifi (ask for the password), and plenty of TVs. And solid specials. And a sidewalk setup! There's really no reason why you should't go here and go often.

Had lunch here 2 weeks ago. Couldn't decide between the Ruben and the Steak Taco Salad. Taco Salad won out and what a great choice. Server was not the best and it was after the lunch rush. Plan to dine here again.

Fulton Market, Randolph Market, Jackson Boulevard and
