On the expensive side but great selection and service. Food was great too.

My favorite Lakeview spot for beers and upscale bar food. Tap list is all about quality, which is what Chicago needs. Who gives a shit about 49 taps when 37 of them suck? Kate and Tom, the owners, are probably the most down-to-Earth/chill people in the game, yet they bring the heat when it comes to all things beer & food. A must-stop if in the area.

The service was great, the atmosphere good, the food was disappointing, and the drinks were overpriced.

Surprising amount of good vegan options on the menu like: vegan "pork" fries with almond "cheese", a burger, and quinoa with roasted vegetables. Lively vibe on weekends. They had some severe issues with their kitchen last time I visited (resulting in over an hour delay for our entrees), but they were very apologetic about it.

$50+ bucks for a chili dog, a burger and 2 beers for my girlfriend and I to have a night out. What a joke. The food was mediocre at best, the beer selection was good but over priced and the service at the bar wasn't exactly friendly. So many better options close by.

Northdown has a nice beer selection and a pretty laid back atmosphere. The bartenders are easy-going and have no problem handling any questions you might have. Prices are average for the selection. I think this is a good place to meet a few friends for a drink after work. The food menu is pretty good, too.

Decent neighborhood spot with a great beer list. Nice "bro-free" atmosphere that is often hard to find at Lakeview-area taverns. Menu is fairly limited and food is just ok, would have expected much better for the amount of time it took to get to our table. Service at the bar was excellent, much less so when we moved to a table.
