A short strut from Chicago’s Restaurant Row, Chicken and Farm Shop serves up free-range Amish birds, which are marinated overnight, steamed and then cooked over charcoal on a special rotisserie. Head Chef James Garron uses the same birds to whip up comfort classics like chicken and waffles and a fried chicken sandwich. In a space taking inspiration from 1950s American general stores, guests enjoy a fun, casual setting while dining on indulgent eats and a rare taste of rotisserie in Chicago.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.5

Chicken & Farm Shop is one of the casual restaurants in Soho House. It shouldn't come as a surprise that chicken is the main attraction.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

we waited atleast 15 minutes to get waited on and waited 35 minutes for our food, one person in our party didn't receive his dinner and had to share our food. the waitress was not friendly at all. when we asked about the dinner for my boss that never came, her response was 'oh, sorry, I'll remove it from the bill" we wanted the food but got tired of waiting. we had a party of 5 and the table was way too small to accommodate the dishes. Will not go back and will not refer to anyone.

It took a while for someone to greet us so we were standing there for a little bit. The food definitely made up for this as the chicken and waffle were great! I highly recommend ordering that if you go. I will definitely be going back!

Fresh tasty food and you don't have to worry about food allergies because they cook preparing your food with thought in mind! Staff very nice and welcoming...not much of a sports at but there are a couple of tvs if you want to catch a game. The place is for good dining and conversation.

I had the quarter chicken with fries plus the warm brownie for dessert and my dinner date had the original fried chicken sandwich.

The chicken free range roasted chicken and it was good. It didn't take long for the food to come out. The chicken sandwich was huge!!!! Two chicken breast fried to perfection and the sides are sharable if you choose too. The brownie was ok we could have passed. Overall cost $56 including two cokes.

This was our first time visiting Chicken and Farm Shop. The host seemed confused when we got there. They were not overly crowded. We got our water right away and then had to wait a little bit to order. We ordered 2 chocolate shakes as well as the whole Rotisserie chicken dinner. It took almost 20 mins to get our shakes and they were awful. They were over blended and like Luke warm chocolate soup.
The dinner was tasty. We do wish they offered traditional sides like mashed potatoes and gravy.
We most likely won’t be back.

Delicious food and great service! I tried the dirty chicken sandwich and my husband ordered the quarter rotisserie chicken. Both were delicious! Fries and biscuits for our sides to share were plenty. Full bar with plenty to chose from. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend!

Food was amazing however we did not get great service. Our waitress was not at all engaged or interested in helping us and even yawned loudly as I was giving her my order. The food was good and I'll definitely be back but service was less than ideal.

The food at chicken shop is delicious. Everyone at our table was satisfied. The service on the other hand, wasn’t the best. We were immediately greeted and orders taken right when we sat down which was nice, but we didn’t see much of our waiter the rest of the night. There were six of us friends getting together for drinks and dinner but once we ordered the first round the server never came back to offer more drinks. We sat at the table for almost three hours and never got his attention until it was time for the bill. When he said “can I get you guys another drink” it was too late.

I had the chicken cobb and it was flavorless. It had rotisserie chicken added but it’s not really fun to be digging bones out of your mouth unexpectedly. Tomatoes were mealy, and the two pieces of bacon were hard to chop fine on the plate and the dish really needed that extra texture. My dining partners also didn’t rave about their food. I’d skip it. It’s loud and nothing great.
