Love the bar area, like a comfortable winter cabin including a fireplace, great bartender mixing excellent cocktails. We went to the dining room for dinner and it was very pleasant, scallops were excellent and so was the octopus, I did not care for the venison though it was just OK. Great place for a slightly upscale experience, good for a date, good for couples, good for friends, pretty versatile. More

We enjoyed our first visit to the Whisky Thief for the Bears playoff game. Plenty of TVs throughout the space and they did put the sound on for the game. We had one of the cozy barrel booths and were very comfortable. The restaurant is a little dark, but has a cool ambiance. Service was great and food was absolutely outstanding! Our group enjoyed bacon-wrapped dates, nachos and calamari to start. Then we had some of the best burgers we have ever had!! Can’t stop thinking about them! Looking forward to dining there again soon. More

Our special night out was enhanced but excellent service from Dan and a surprise whiskey tasting set up. The special of the night was sirloin steak over arugula which we shared and a tasty kale mixed salad. Espresso and dessert finished off the night. Try this restaurant if you haven't done so. More

Met friends for dinner. There were four of us in a back booth . Much prefer the booth to the communal eating - they do not offer many booths - mostly communal dining or small tables right next to each other . Great variety of drink options . We all enjoyed our beers and cheese curds . I got a Chicago dog and fries - it was just average. Service was really good . Vibe was energetic - a little loud . More
