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.

Good neighborhood bar with a great draft and bottle beer selection including some hard to find beers. The mac-n-cheese is my favorite on their menu, but the burgers are decent too.

Northdowns burger was delicious. One of the best in the city. Beer selection includes a handful of hard to get Three Floyd's beers. Highly recommended!

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.

Stellar beer selection including plenty of hard to find varieties. I've had drinks there on multiple occasions but only eaten here once. That said, the burger was excellent. It can get crowded in the evening so if your focus is dinner I'd probably recommend going early in the night.

This is my definitive local place - my fallback/default for dinner, lunch, and drinks. Fantastic food, a great rotating tap list, and they can still throw down a great Manhattan. Two words: Turkey Balls That is all.
