City Tavern harkens back to a time when dining was built around an experience, not just a meal, and when the whole community gathered to share beer out of the cask.

City Tavern is a welcome addition to the South Loop. The decor is warm and homey, if a bit on the noisy side. The bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly. While our lunch and dinner food has always been excellent, our brunch choices needed improvement. We found the fried chicken's coating a little too sweet, and the egg whites watery.

This is a great addition to the South Loop neighborhood. The food is really, really good. Slightly higher-priced for bar food, but the menu is much more interesting and the quality is great. Like the atmosphere as well - bar is cozy upfront and there is a good-sized dining area in the back. Great for large group lunches/dinners or a quick drink. Good selection of beers on tap.

This place has an awesome old style pub feel to it that was just a blast to be at. The only downside is since it has that old pub style feel they didn't do much to block out the acoustics which can be pretty loud when they are packed. That being said it's a pub! I'm only complaining on the noise as I'm getting old and cranky while their food is fantastic and their beer selection is good. The front area has a nice bar area with a larger seating area in the back for meals. Both sections can get noisy though it has felt louder at night over going for lunch. One thing my reviews usually stress is outdoor seating and areas which I love for the summer but this place has a feature I love for the winter - they have fireplace seating. (Good luck getting it on a busy night but if you do get it, pretty great background feel!) I haven't been here for the brunch so I'm not sure how their breakfast is. What I can tell you is that the mushroom flat bread, tavern burger, grilled cheese, hanger steak, and fish n chips are all great. Past that I have no idea but honestly with just those to choose from you can't go wrong! Great atmosphere, fun time, just might be a place to avoid at peak hours if you aren't a fan of the noise.

Upscale dining in a casual setting. The pub atmosphere is quite lovely and the menu, which changes according to season, offers classic American fare, beautifully plated and served by a knowledgeable wait staff. The only drawback is it can get a bit noisy, which can make dinner conversation a challenge. I agree with +Stephanie Cyr and +Michelle Owens that City Tavern is a great and welcome addition to the South Loop.

I just enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere and the personal attention to your every need. An absolute Jem to the Museum Park Neighborhood! LOOK OUT NORTHSIDE you just might have to cross Madison. Ave for this one! There is great cuisine in a fairly new place, and it's walking distance from the Bears to the museums. BON APP!

Love the Fisherman's Punch! And the fireplace seating is a great place to enjoy one in front of a roaring fire in the colder months.
