This huge beer garden turns into a laid-back college reunion on weekend nights in summer, with baseball-capped dudes and spaghetti-strapped chicks flanking the outdoor bar. In colder months, the attention turns to the more sophisticated picks on the beer list and the slabs of ribs that go a long way toward warming the belly.

Love coming here! There's a great selection of beer and the food is great. Service is always quick and friendly. I love going outside on the patio which is kept up very well. I try to avoid during Cubs games, as it gets pretty packed. I like to start my night here. Huge fan of the Fried Green Tomato Sliders and the Brisket Sandwich! 


If you are the t-shirt and jeans wearing, not out to impress kind of folk that feels comfortable partaking in intellectual conversations with random strangers over the benefits of Old Style vs. Milwaukee's Best, this is a great place for you to spend some time.

I love almost everything about it here. The huge patio outside is a fantastic hang out during the summer months. With that said, I would suggest avoiding this bar following any Cubs home games. That's the only downfall in my opinion. Otherwise, the fireplace inside provides a warm, cozy nook to sit back and relax over a cold brew. Regardless of whether your preference is high end imports on draft or a bad beer from a can, you'll be glad you came.

Love, love, love Sheffield's!! Definitely our go-to spot in the neighborhood, even after moving a mile east closer to the lake. Love their food, fabulous beer menu, and the staff is the best!

It's very difficult to not love this place, and especially in the summertime. Their outdoor area keeps you there all day & night. Easy since they have great selections of spirits and food.

Sheffields is a great local restaurant that has everything I love about a bar. Great drink options, an outdoor beer garden and amazing bar food, kudos to the BBQ


One of my favorite neighborhood spots when the Cubs aren't in town. Fantastic beer selection, and the patio is a gorgeous escape on a summer evening.

The patio here is the perfect spot to spend a summer night in Lakeview drinking beers.
