I've been to The Foundry many times due to work in the Chicago area. I always seek out The Foundry for eats and sports on T.V. I always have a great meal, a good beer (or 5) and it's close to my hotel for a...More

Guinness had a very soapy head. Never had one like that & hope I don't again. Nachos had no real cheese or much chili. Lots of jalapeños, grease, & water. There are a lot of projection tv screens, but nothing in high-def to let you...More

Although we didn't eat at the Foundry, we enjoy some drinks and played pool. It's located in a former movie theater (be sure to ask the front end personnel about it's tainted history). The place is huge with dozens of monster TVs. On this night...More

I go here to bet on the horses. It's the biggest OTB around. On big race days a group of us always have a table reserved. The food is bar food, it's ok at best. The drinks are pricy. Mug refills are the only way...More

Lots of TV's and OTB on site- food is so-so. Service when I was there was fine but their management of tables is poor and I don't know how they get away with having a smoking room- I am shocked they are not in violation...More

I went to this bar last year to watch the Packers game because they had a Packer room with sound. When I got there, I was told they no longer have this room. Seemed very odd as they had a room for Steeler fans and...More

TVs are awesome for sporting events, however food is below average and overpriced and service is slow. Seems management does not care if you come back. Used to be a really fun place to go for a game, not any more.
