Tavern on Wells - Old Town
Max M.

There were plenty of options on the menu – and everything was very reasonably priced. Overall it’s a good lunch spot and we’ll be back to try something else.

First time visiting this place. Nice happy medium between fancy and “townie” atmosphere. The food was really good!  I had the old town beef burger. Delicious. This is a joint I would want to visit again.

Tavern on Wells is a part of Old Town, Chicago. It is family owned and has great Appetizers & Burgers as well as a nice wine & beer selection. I mostly come out for the drinks Friday & Saturday nights, which is AWESOME!   Also, they have pizza available all day-all night – Mmmmmmm mmm.

Local bar in my neighborhood, Old Town in Chicago. Ladies night out. The salads were plentiful and tasty and service we had was great. I thought the atmosphere in the bar was quite nice, comfortable and relaxed.
