“Nostalgic Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

This was rated as one of my uncle's favorite places in Chicago when he was still living. Passing by during a gallery swing, we had to go in.

It's a fairly classic old pub. Good pub-grub type food, great beer prices, and an interesting history, as one of the last wood-framed buildings in the CBD, and maybe the only with a noticeable lean. They still have the speakeasy in the basement, although it wasn't accessible on our visit.

“Great historic bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

The hotel concierge pointed us toward the Green Door since we were looking for a bar with history. Loved the signs, light fixtures and furniture. Waitress recommended the triple decker grilled cheese. It was wonderful. I know how could a grilled cheese be so good. It was really that good. Marble rye bread and bacon did help it. Beer choice was nice. Really enjoyed the atmosphere.

“Great Irish bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013 via mobile

Somewhat of a hole in the wall- which I love! The walls are not straight- actually leaning. It was part of the city that did not burn. The service is great. I love the dark atmosphere and old bar like feel. Great little dive for a burger and some history.

“Great Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

The food was very good, especially the butterscotch cheese cake. Mix the food with some quality drinks and the 3 hours we spent here on a snowy Chicago night made this place special forever. I will definitely be back the next time I find my way to the windy city.

“Nice Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012 via mobile

We had a groupon for the weekend brunch, which is fairly new. Not an extensive menu, but good enough that everyone could get what they wanted. I had a mimosa, French Toast, and sausage; which was good. My husband had the fresh squeezed orange juice and the veggie skillet. Overall, it was a nice meal in a bar/tavern atmosphere.
