"I recently went for Act One as it seemed like an okay restaurant from the descriptions that I saw. The night we went there was no show - and there was a Cubs game - so the crowd and atmosphere was, frankly speaking, nothing but a cheesy sports bar. With four TV's, and a menu of mostly sandwiches and bar junk, it was definitely not my cup of tea for dinner. Even in the category of sports bar, the food wasn't that great."

"After we ordered a bottle of wine, our long-suffering and excellent waitress, Samantha, returned and informed us, "We're out of pinot grigio." The only dry white alternative was an over-oaky Calif. chardonnay.
After a third member of our party joined us and ordered a vodka martini with a particular brand of vodka, Sam once again had to apologize for the bar, because it was out of that brand and would Stolichnaya do?
Sam's empathetic good nature got us beyond those setbacks, and the walleye was excellent, the salad entree was excellent, and the pot pie was excellent. The atmosphere is friendly, the noise level was one decibel short of "too noisy," and the rest rooms are clean."

"We were visiting our daughter who is a Sophomore at Loyola Chicago and feasted for Sunday Brunch at Act One at the MayneStage (just two stops up the Redline from Loyola). My wife and I loved the Corned Beef Hash and Roast Beef Hash, respectively, and our daughter's burger was delightfully drippy and delicious looking. The pub setting is delightfully done, and the brief tour of the performing space left us longing to return for a performance on a future visit."

"We had a great time going to dinner and then the theater afterwards. The food was unbelievably good and the service the same. Returned after the show for deserts and drinks. Highly recommend."

"Their brunch is delicious and their Sunday night trivia is the best bar trivia I've found in the city. Their semi-nightly live music acts are cool too."

"Calamari was fantastic, blackened salmon was just right, and the warm brownie ala mode was a dream. Our server, I believe his name was Matt, was friendly and just attentive enough. I would go back! No one in our group had negative things to say. The later it got the louder it got."

"Went on Valentine's day for their special. We ordered the Mac and cheese as our appetizer, which was splendid. The salads were salads, but when the New York strip steaks came with mashed potatoes and sweet potatoe wedges- holy cow it was delicious.
My only are of improvement would be the chocolate truffles for dessert were too much for me to handle. A regular chocolate cake would have worked just fine. Either way I highly recommend this place!

"If you are not going for a show or live music, plan to go early as it can get really loud in the pub area if that's not your plan. That happened the first time we went, and it was still good food/drinks/service. But this time we went around 6:30 and it was laid back and a great date night location. Really good craft beer selection and great location (half a block off the Morse Red Line). So great to have a pub with good drink options and a decent variety of pub foods options in the heart of East Rogers Park."
