In summer, this beer garden is one of the best in Chicago, but only if you can deal with ass-to-elbow crowds. We prefer this beer-and-burger haven in winter, when we can snag a table by the fireplace and get cozy with our date. Just remember to bring a flashlight to read the menu; the place is dark enough that you could carry on an affair while your spouse was sitting across the room.
