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 is sitting across the room.

Blue cheese burger, interesting beer selection, knowledgable servers, a fantastic patio and a pub that hasn't changed since perhaps the Middle Ages. What more could you want in a neighborhood bar?
What can I say about Moody's? It's the perfect place for a relaxing night with friends around a pitcher of sangria and Moodyburgers. Although nothing beats the Moody's beer garden in the warmer months, gathering around one of the two fireplaces with a warm drink from their winter menu is also an ideal way to gather. Though service can be a tad slow sometimes compared to some places, I've personally never found it an issue as this is the type of establishment where most patrons come to stay awhile.
This is a place where you can stay and drink awhile. While the interior is dark and, shall we say, moody, the patio is massive, with delightful, overhanging trees providing lots of shade and a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The service can be slow when the patio gets busy, but if you order a couple of pitchers (I'd recommend the sangria!), you should be good to go.
