Nice little bar. Good bar food, dive bar atmosphere. The Karaoke here is unreal, though! Quite the turn out for it and it's a great atmosphere once it's rocking!

Dive bar/hole-in-the-wall bar. They offer karaoke most nights. On the Saturday we went, it started @ 10pm. Friendly crowd with no booing allowed. However it's my understanding that this location of Blue Frog closes sometime in January 2016 so get here while you can.

Group of friends went to this bar during karaoke night. It was packed as this is a very small bar with limited seating. Seemed to be mostly locals. Bathrooms are shower curtains for stalls. Bar needed some dusting and TLC. Drinks were cheap for Chicago which was a plus and the bartenders were friendly and great! If your looking for... More

My wife and I were walking to lunch and stumbled across this place. We saw the beer sign and it drew us in, thought the entrance isn't totally apparent. It is a local dive bar, and we loved it. We came in for a drink, or two. The owner, Mimi, was there and Dan was bar tending. Both were friendly... More

At a recent meeting in Chicago, a group of us found our way over to the Blue Frog Bar and Pub. (We were looking for it as it was a place listed in the American Airlines idine program). Glad that we found it! On this unseasonalbly hot day, we sat outside and dined on beers and local brews. Great selection... More

It's a dive bar with semi-surly bartenders who don't seem to take kindly to anyone but their local cronies. It's a karaoke joint so some of our group wanted to get drunk and sing some tunes, unfortunately we had trouble with both those options. The place is TINY and packed with college bimbos in slutty outfits and/or regulars. If you... More

I dropped by the Blue Frog after reading reviews raving about the fun and games. I was disappointed upon entering to see one table of friends playing a lively game and one local sitting at the bar. So I ordered a martini which is why I went there in the first place. The local at the bar and the bar... More

Blue Frog had wonderful staff that were very attentive, the environment was very laid back (a Tues. night around 6 or 7), and the food...OMG the food! We had the best mac 'n' cheese and jalapeno bites we've ever had, and if you're looking for a burger, well let me tell you, it is insanely hard to choose just one!... More
