Our Reputation Speaks For Itself

Our reputation of being one of Chicago’s best bars comes from this commitment to quality. To prove this, take a look at the options from our scratch kitchen, or give us a call and set up an event on the second floor of the building. High-quality service to us, means that you should be able to come to your local gastropub and get everything you need—you need a location for your bachelorette party? We got you covered. You need a place to bring the kids without missing the game? We have a patio meant for kids and even your dogs. Mother-in-law in town and you need a brunch place? We got that too!

Great neighborhood pub with decent grub. It gets a little loud on the weekends, especially during football season (looking at you Ohio people ha). Great for brunch and hangover food. Bartenders have a good sense of humor.

I simply LOVE The Butcher's Tap. The restaurant is located at Southport and Addison nestled in the super cute Lakeview neighborhood. It is just two blocks from Wrigley Field and is easily accessible by multiple forms of public transportation. The menu is imaginative and yummy. The restaurant is always very clean and lovely. The staff is on it and fun to talk to while you dine. This is a wonderful place to catch a game, play trivia and bingo, take in some live music, or even catch a taping of a podcast. The vibe is always on and they have great spaces for private events. Check it. <3

Just moved into the neighborhood. Great chicken sandwich, super friendly bar staff. This will be our neighborhood drinking/eating spot! (and three years later it still is!). It can get really loud depending on what sporting event is on the TVs.

The Butchers Tap is a vintage neighborhood bar that has an original tin ceiling, and dark wood throughout . The service was amiable and prompt. Menu is usual bar food with sandwiches, flatbreads, and salads. There is a list of appetizers. A huge selection of draft beers is offered. We left curious about the advertised Buckeye Bomb drink.

I went during the day on a weekday. It had a totally relaxed vibe. Great local beer selection. The cheese curds were the star of lunch. We also had a delicious burger and onion rings. The turkey sandwich was just okay. A great place to chill out for a couple hours in the afternoon.
