BENCHMARK, A FOUR CORNERS® TAVERN, pairs great food and drinks with friendly service and strives to provide our customers with a powerful experience each time they visit. Our Benchmark concept is the perfect fit for the Old Town area in Chicago.

The Benchmark menu includes some new and creative items as well as updated twists on familiar menu favorites. With 46 TV’s Benchmark is the perfect place to catch a game with old friends or make some new ones. The highlight of the venue is the first of its kind, fully retractable roof covering most of the 2nd floor. It’s Chicago’s first convertible beer garden.

My wife and I went there a couple weekends ago. When I checked my bank account they nearly charged me double what the bill was. I called numerous times to get it resolved. Everytime they told me they would have the manager call me back, and that hasn't happened yet. Once I get the money back that they owe me, I will definitely change the review to a favorable one.

Beware of douche bags. This place is great during the week or during the day on the weekend, but at night on Friday and Saturday this place attracts bros. Graphic tee wearing, yager bomb loving bros. Other than that I can't complain. Like all four corners bars, their food is outstanding. Their retractable roof is the bomb. Perfect for day drinking or a quick week night dinner. I get there salads take out all the time!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Benchmark!! Great bar. AWESOME Southwest Salad -- seriously, to die for! Great wait staff and such a fun atmosphere. Love the open roof in the summer/good weather.

I can't speak for the nightlife here, (because I don't usually go to sportsbars for a night on the town); but if you're looking to watch a daytime game on a summer weekend, it's a pretty ideal spot. Each table basically has it's own TV; large group seating (perfect for meeting up with your teammates); big DIY bloody mary bar; awesome retractable roof and upper deck for peoplewatching; and my favorite- the "big margarita" which has a mini grand marnier and mini corona supplanting your margarita. Highly recommend for festive daytime drinking!

I've came from really liking Benchmark to it just being average, thus the 4 star rating. Sports bar in Old Town so it can get crowded and packed sometimes making it hard to get a drink. But the times I've been when it was less crowded, my experience was a lot better. Never ate the food here but the bartenders make a pretty good drink. Drinks are a tad bit pricey but the norm for the area. Its a good spot to go if you are meeting up with coworkers or an after work function. If you like the type of sports bar where you can't hear the sports being shown on TV, this isn't the place for you. Crowd age ranges from college kids to old cougars sitting at the bar.

It's just okay. It's your typical weekend bar. The demographic felt like stuck up and douche bag and the drinks were hard to get because the bartenders looked like they hates their job. Sad thing to see because the place looks great and I like the layout.

The drinks are priced reasonably. The service isn't that great, starting from standing in line where the guys at the front door are just so rude. If you like the douchey type of bar with a young, drunk crowd, Benchmark is the right spot for you.
