Solid Place!!!!. GOOD BEER! GOOD BEER GARDEN! GOOD BURGERS! NUFF SAID!!!!!!
Great Place. Love their Burgers. One of the great hidden gems of Chicago..
Service Problem. Have enjoyed Moody's on previous visits, but could not even get served on my latest. Sat down and had several servers both look at us and pass us by without a word. 20 minutes later we decided to depart.
terrible service. I live one block away from Moody's. I've been treated rudely two out of the three times dining there. The first time my roommate and I were there, they completely ignored our table. I assume this was because we didn't order alcohol. The second time I was with a date. He ordered his burger well, mine medium. Mine was very close to raw and his was hot pink in the middle. Upon informing the waitress (politely) she walked away, came back burgers in hand and proceeded to tell me I was wrong. Then asked "what am I supposed to do about it?". I asked to speak with the manager, was argued with again, then the manager shouted from the bar across the room "whats the problem it's fine, I checked". I had to walk up to the bar because he refused to come to my table to speak with me. He was rude and unprofessional, and completely unconcerned that he had two very unhappy customers. I wasn't even demanding anything, I just wanted them to except that the order was completely wrong, not to mention disgusting. I wouldn't eat there again if I was paid to.
great restaurant off the beaten path. My friends and I started going to Moody's in the mid-1970s, it is an institution in Edgewater! I have many fond memories of meals and drinks there. Yes, it's very dark but that is a big part of the atmosphere. The burgers and onion rings were/are the best. It is a great place to sit outside on a hot summer night, you could sit, talk and eat for a long time and no one would chase you out. Also the fireplaces make it a wonderful cozy spot in cold weather. I live in the Atlanta suburbs now and unfortunately the metro area does not have anything to compare with Moody's food or environment.
Best Burgers in town, Great steaks. Awsome salads.. Everything is great, if only Cindy would pass the dessert tray around. Great place. Best outdoor patio in the city. Excellent service.
The best atmosphere to enjoy the best burger - hands down!. Outside of Kuma's and C.W. Napkin, there isn't an establishment on the northside of Chicago that comes close to challenging Moody's for the title of "Best Hamburger." Throw in the atmosphere - cozy/dark/fireplace during the fall/winter and awesome beer garden during the summer months - and you have one of my favorite places in Chicago! It's kind of a hike north but parking on Broadway is plentiful or you can take the Red Line to Thorndale and walk 100 yards or so. Stick with the beer which is fairly priced as I don't believe the soda has refills...fine by me!!!
Great burgers and atomsphere. Highly recommended during the winter time, with a dim lit atmosphere and real fireplaces makes a cozy environment.
Great Place on a cold day. Moody's Pub has great onion rings and the burgers speak for themselves. The place has two fireplaces which makes it seem very cozy and can keep you warm on a cold day. Moody's is cash only, however there is a ATM in the restaurant.
Fireplace & Burger Extravaganza. I was at Moody's this past weekend and we sat by the fireplace. The atmosphere is cozy, warm, down to earth and friendly. It's not a feed'em and run'em off kind of place. The staff was attentive. But what ROCKED was the MOODY BURGER!! It was juicy, the bun was soft and combo cannot be beat. My friend had a burger with a mountain of bleu cheese on top. It is my number one burger restaurant in the Chicago area. I will return. Also, the onion rings are really good dipped in the garlic dressing!!! To top it off the price is right, drink and food prices are really reasonable.
