Tables are too tight together. Took a very long time to get an ice tea. My mom ordered medium well sliders, they came to the table as medium rare. My friend ordered a medium burger, it came to the table extremely rare.

Say outdoor in KBR kf the last nice days in October. Had the fried chicken. It was good but not great. A bit too greasy and lacking flavor. Service was excellent. Not sure I’ll return. I live nearby but there are a lot of other options including LUXBAR and Gibson’s.

2 of the 3 steaks were over cooked. When we told our server, they took them away but did not bring new ones. He brought us a dessert to share instead. No apology and he didn’t take the steaks off the bill. We were really disappointed!

We came here tonight for my husbands surprise birthday. The staff was incredibly accommodating before and during the event, and service at the time of the dinner was great. The meal was wonderful. We cannot wait to come back!

Tavern on Rush is our weekly go to neighborhood restaurant. Having been gone for the summer, we were welcomed with open arms & hugs from everyone. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. Seated at out usual window table looking the lights of Rush St, our drinks arrived promptly as did their fabulous assortment of fresh breads & butter. I love their sun-dried tomato focaccia. We decided to have the Chateaubriand for two. Perfectly grilled medium rare slices of tenderloin with grilled asparagus, grilled portobellos, grilled peppers, grilled onions & grilled zucchini. All was accompanied with both a Béarnaise sauce and a Demi-glace. Delicious & enough to take home for another dinner! Side salads with their wonderful bleu cheese dressing were included. Finally, a complimentary chocolate/chocolate chip gelato from Benny was the end to a perfect evening. Best of all, with 2 cocktails and 20% tip it came to only $165, a bargain in this area! Highly recommend!

A moth in a salad and sending steaks back twice for failing to cook them at the right temperature definitely ruined the experience. I would think twice before dining here over other Chicago steakhouses. You would think that management would be more sympathetic to the horrible situation and extra critters that came with your meal.

Never thought about tavern for breakfast on Sunday but now I’ll always think about them! Christine provided outstanding service for a large group of 10. Tremendous variety on the menu and very reasonable prices. Timely service in a nice atmosphere. The eggs Benedict are fabulous and the breakfast potatoes are delicious and much better than any other restaurant

It’s one of my favorite brunch places. Love their stuffed French toast which I always order with a side of eggs and some chorizo. Chorizo isn’t one of the sides on their menu but they always accommodate this special request. That speaks very well of their customer service.

Food was good but $18 for a hamburger is a little pricey. Also $15.50 for a martini? It was a great ambiance, service and food were great, just expensive in my opinion.
