Holy French Fries!!! Absolutely delicious fries with incredible dipping sauces. We got a large and split it between 7 people and still had leftovers. HIGHLY recommend the garlic aioli dipping sauce. We went on a saturday aftenoon and the place was packed. The noise level was a little high but not unbearable. Good beer selection!

We were going to a show at the United Center and didn’t want to do the normal fast food before parking. So we found this place on here, and saw some good reviews. Decided to try it for ourselves, and man were our expectations met. Service was exceptional, and the food came out quickly. Highly recommend and definitely will be back again.

Most patrons were in the outside portion. We were pretty surprised by how slow the service was, and our server took a long time to arrive to the table, didn't offer coffee until we ordered about 15 minutes later, and checked in on us during the meal one time at the very end. Food was really good, but was disappointed by the slow, inattentive service.

We made a reservation for 6pm and showed up 45 minutes early and they were able to seat us early without a problem. Food was well worth the price, service was fantastic. Would recommend and would return again if in the area. They also offered a free shuttle to a concert we were attending after dinner!

Great service. Food was a little meh 😼but maybe we didn’t order the right thing. The trout had a lot of flavor but was a bit overcooked in my opinion, and the zucchini had zero flavor. The vegan stew was good but the temp was not very hot/warm. Seriously tho the staff here is wonderful!!!

Service was good, no wait for our reservation. Food was ok. Sausauge ate like it was reheated, rather than cooked to order. It was very dry and mealy. The pretzel was big but stale. Liked the 5 oz pour in the ciders because I'm a light weight when it comes to drinking alcohol. Husband ordered the schnitzel and liked it. Fries were really greasy. Hard to have a converastion because the noise level is way high. Took advantage of their shuttle to United Center for a concert.

Cool, trendy restaurant and bar. Comfortable atmosphere and a friendly vibe. Food is very good, with a strong feel towards the hub of the meatpacking industry (not a real big salad place). Service is right on. Friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. Oh, and they have real outdoor Curling! You can drink and play an Olympic sport!

We went before a hockey game.
So glad we had reservations since it was pretty busy due to the game.
The food was great, extensive beer list, the shuttle to the United Center was super handy!

Came for Hawks/Red Wings pre-gaming. Overall, excellent experience! Solid draft list, very meat-focused menu = yes, please! I find that our server usually has tables scattered throughout, so it appears that your server disappears for awhile but then returns. I guess it's their way to balance the crowd amongst the servers - a bit odd; but, I get it. I liked that a manager came by and asked how things were going. I will definitely return.

Food was good. We had several of the sausage sandwiches all very tasty. We had bacon wrapped dates as an app, also delicious. The large order of fries was HUGE and all the fries were very well cooked -- highly recommend everything. Service was (very) fast and efficient which was appreciated as we were pre-concert at United Center. The free shuttle service to UC was also very much appreciated, especially given it was 7F outside.

I've been to Kaiser Tiger 3x thus far and it just keeps getting better. Diana our server was top-notch, Brickstone brewery peeps were there handing out tastes of their beers, being their friendly selves and giving away merch - all for my first Hawks pregaming. The food was excellent - the bacon board is OUTSTANDING, as were their fries! In addition, a fine selection of craft beers on draft. Definitely a place you do not have to twist my arm to go to.

Friends were in town for a short visit and I know Kaiser Tiger would be a win because of the curling. It was so fun and the atmosphere is great. Our server was fantadtic, food was tasty, overall good luck.

Meal was good but left something to be desired. Skillets we’re potato heavy and could have used more meat, and the eggs were over done. Curling was fun but a bit underwhelming. Usually a great spot but seemed to be lacking a bit during our visir

The only reason we went here was to do the curling - I had a reservation at 5 but when I explained that we wanted to curl she said I should be there at 4pm. SO we changed the reservation and got there at 4pm and there were NO CURLING slots open for hours. SO DISAPPOINTING. In addition - they should tell you that there is really no parking and that they only do ONE shuttle to the game - not several like other restaurants. Just felt like everything they said was misleading in one way or another. The food was decent - bar food - but did like how things were handled.
