I was in town on business the week that the Cubs had their final game for the championship. I went here to meet up wiht my cousins and had to say that the place really impressed me. It's an old, refurbished movie theatre that has been transformed into a state of the art sports bar. Really cool place to go.... More

I went there to catch a college football game and found what I wanted. I had the house burger which was good. Service was good. It was not crowded, it was a Saturday night. Not sure about the drink or beer selection since I drank some soft drinks.

I am a local. When this place opened many years ago it was always busy. No more unless a major playoff game or NCAA madness. Food used to be great bar food. Now it's truly awful. The nachos, always a go to...... Today only had 2 tablespoon of chili and same of gross velveta cheese. What happened to the cheddar?... More

You really can't beat this place to watch a game with a big group of people. Lots of space. Trivia on Tuesdays is a blast. Join their Mug Club for crazy good deals on draft beer! Food is decent and well priced.

This is a very unique place and has a lot going for it. We went on a week night and the place was fairly empty. They did have a lot of people outside playing volleyball but that was about it. Otherwise it seems like this place has all kinds of levels and rooms giving this a very unique feel. The... More

I've been to The Foundry many times due to work in the Chicago area. I always seek out The Foundry for eats and sports on T.V. I always have a great meal, a good beer (or 5) and it's close to my hotel for a taxi ride or short drive. The place is a giant Man Cave. I hope to... More

Guinness had a very soapy head. Never had one like that & hope I don't again. Nachos had no real cheese or much chili. Lots of jalapeños, grease, & water. There are a lot of projection tv screens, but nothing in high-def to let you be able to read anything. The service was almost non-existent. It took 15 minutes to... More

I went in with my family and we turned around and walked right out. The smell of stale smoke lingers in the air.
