"My boyfriend and I love coming to Theory to watch our favorite sports teams. Not only do they have the best wings, everyone who works there is great and super friendly. The accommodate any special requests (IE. which game goes on what tv) and want to make sure that you're having the best time possible."

"Joel is such an accommodating individual so it makes your experience that much more special, especially for Iowa Football games. My only comment was the fact that it got a bit hot in there as my water was condensing and making puddles on my table, but more importantly my neighbor sweat the entire 3 goes we were there. I love and will continue to come to Theory!"

"Visitors to Chicago, we were looking for a place to enjoy the World Cup soccer final. Decided to try Theory and glad we did. Good food, large portions and flat screens everywhere. The wildly partisan crowd sealed the deal. We will definitely return to Theory on future trips."

"This was a great space for our Mother's Day Brunch with family. We were late for our reservation due to traffic and accidents however they were very understanding and patient. I came straight from the airport and they were able to take my luggage and store it for me the entire meal and even asked me about the trip. We were able to watch the game and the TVs were very conveniently placed for all viewing angles for the true sports fan. Parking was easy to find and the food could please every palate especially since I am non-dairy and vegetarian.
My mom loves to try everything and she enjoyed it all. She never eats all her food and she did this time, so that was a definite plus. The only issue we had was her soup came cold but they fixed it right away.
Overall, as a brunch lunch or dinner spot the whole family will enjoy."

"A group of friends and I went here for brunch after a fitness class. The bloody mary bar... AMAZING. They are very accommodating of gluten-free, lactose-free or vegetarian diets. The food was delicious. When one of our orders came out wrong, our server corrected the order and took it off our bill, which was unnecessary as far as we were concerned, but so nice!
The atmosphere for brunch is casual, which was great for a sweaty group of gals, but some patrons were dressed up a bit. Nobody seemed out of place though! Great group experience overall.

"Overall the guests and I had a great Sunday brunch session. First experience there and no complaints other then our waitress could have checked on us a little more frequently but wasn't too big of a deal cause she was nice overall."

"Our group of 8 turned out to be a group of 18. The server and manager were friendly, fast and efficient, even if every time they walked by we grew by another two people. This place is starting to cement itself as one of my favorite brunch places."

"The scene here is a raucous and loud sports bar. It's good if you want to drink and watch the game, and not talk to anybody. The game/music was so loud that we had to yell at each other to talk. The food was greasy, over-sauced and uninspired. We wouldn't recommend it."

"A group of us went for brunch, our first time. Great experience. Food is good especially the enchiladas with pork - yum! It's a bit over stimulating with all the various televisions so be prepared to be distracted. Wonderful service. Met the owner - very personable. I will return."
