Chose Jake Melnick’s for dinner with the family when we were looking for casual eats. I had had eaten at Jake’s many years ago and enjoyed it, it was fun to go back.

My son has a dairy allergy, so we called ahead to ask about their chicken tenders. Everyone we talked to was very friendly and provided us with good news! He can eat the chicken fingers (no dairy, but for others I believe they are cooked in the same fryer as everything else). This made my son happy and set the positive tone for our meal.

The adults had nachos (with extra plain chips on the side for the kids at $1 extra), bbq chicken (moist and yummy), and my wife got peanut butter and jelly wings, which she said were amazing.

Add to the good meal and friendly wait staff, basketball on TV, and a good craft beer and cocktail list. If I lived in Chicago, I might become a regular.

We visited for dinner while spending a few days in Chicago. Midweek and still very busy with a 30 minute wait for a table.

Waitress and bar staff were friendly and drinks were reasonable.

The food was great. Good, fast service and really enjoyed the Ribs, Chicken and Brisket, with a side of Mac n Cheese.

Even managed to share a dessert, which was also very enjoyable.

Overall was really happy with the service and quality of food.

We had been walking along the river walk and Mag mile and wanted an easy, casual dinner w/o all the fuss, this was perfect. Nachos and wings were good, extensive beer list, couldn't have asked for more. Service was good and everything around us looked very tasty as well. Lots of screens if you want to catch a game, and they even had golf on one of the screens.

The beer variety was great! The food was good but not the greatest. It is a not a bad place to end up after a long day.

The food was great, and service was good too. The beer selection was good. The waitress had plenty of suggestions. We ended choosing both.
