"Food was average at best which was incredibly disappointing. Great spot to watch a game but the food was a major let down.
Service for the most part was good but had numerous mistakes on the bill including double charging for a menu item and not having drink specials rung in correctly.
Management (Joel) was very friendly and frankly we expected far better."

"Place is great, very friendly staff, owner walks around to check out tables and ask if you want a specific game on. Great spot to watch the game with a tone of TV's and good food. Sports bar gem in river north."

"We recently visited Chicago from Toronto. We found Theory online by searching out sports bars that would be near our hotel (The Hampton Inn). Our travel group of 4 is big on watching sports and this place was amazing for it. There are flat screens on every wall, for every 5 steps you take in the restaurant and the staff was so accommodating - making sure the game that we wanted to watch was on a tv that we could see. It's true - every seat has an amazing view of any one of several tvs. This on it's own was already amazing.
The food was so good and at a decent price, too. You've gotta try the BBQ nachos and shrimp tacos!
Next, you have the music. We went on a Saturday night and the playlist running was on point with old school Hip-hop. Later there was a DJ who kicked it up another level. Music was soooo good.
Our next trip to Chicago we are definitely coming back."

"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."

"They were able to get a group of 11 in quickly even though they were super busy. Not great for a large group as it was pretty loud and hard to carry a conversation with the full group."

"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!"
