Angry Pig Tavern is a New American neighborhood restaurant located in the historic Turkish Baths on North Ave in Wicker Park. The white subway tile is adorned with unique artwork, chalkboards announcing the Oysters, charcuterie and cheese options of the day. TV’s are placed throughout, but the sound is off to avoid interruptions (except for big games-and then only in the bar!)

While the name Angry Pig, may lend to the assumption that our menu is Pork heavy, we have many options. Such as American Sea Bass, Duck Tacos, Salads and a delicious array of shareable apps that shouldn’t be missed!

Our Brunch special is the best in Chicago and cannot be beat! $35 for any entree and bottomless Bloody Mary’s, Mimosa’s and Shorts Local Light Lager!

Brought my daughter and male friend. Had the cheese plate first, and that was a great start for 4 people with 3 cheeses that were featured on the chalk board with other goodies. Then each of us had differenct dishes and none of us were disappointed. I had the scallops which were good. Someone had the grilled cheese, which was very affordable and good. The girls took half their meals home since couldn't finish. We had wine but instead of bottle they had their house Malbec in a keg, so had a caraff and the wine was different but very good. With 20% tip, it cost us about $45 each which is not bad with wine and cheese plate, plus 4 meals.

Eclectic menu with extensive beer selection including PBR for this older simplistic guy. Wish I’d tried the burger. Same meat supplier as au chaval. They messed up my duck tacos but responded very well. Waiter and service attitude 5 star.

We stopped into the Angry Pig for drinks at the bar and dinner before a show at The Den theater. the bar Happy Hour was great and the Popcorn appetizer was delicious! dinner was very good but once we got tot he dining room service was a bit slow. I would recommend for the Happy Hour for sure but give the dining room a chance as well as the food was very good.

The food was mostly good, and plentiful. The fish and chips was the highlight - really crunchy outside but also soft and fresh flaky fish I side. I don't think anything was out of this world (except the awesome beer selection!) and our server forgot our salad. It wasn't on the bill, but it's kind of annoying to just totally forget a whole dish. And it's not like they were very busy. Overall it was okay and we will probably try it one more time.

The service was pretty bad but I think the server may have been oversat so I understand that. However, despite that, she was pretty rude and as a server myself, thought her attitude still could have been better. However I understand there are bad nights and maybe we just caught her on one.

The food, however, no excuse. It was terrible. The fish and chips was the worst I’ve ever had. Ever. The duck tacos were dry, thicket burger over cooked, ceviche had no taste. Overall, just a crappy experience- I’ll don’t recommend unless you want to watch the game and eat a burger (which is totally cool!) but I would t expect more.

Nice venue with attentive staff. Gluten free accommodation is very misleading. They only strip down menu options by eliminating standard ingredients. Leaves the meal feeling kinda second class. Not an enjoyable memory.

Had a relaxing several hours hanging and eating with friends here on a Sunday for brunch. Game was on quietly. Excellent food choices for 2 vegetarians and 3 meat eaters. Fair warning about the portions--you are full for the whole day! Server was attentive and knowledgeable. Made the experience even better than the food, and that is saying a lot!

Probably one of the best bottomless places in Chicago. The bloody Marys were very strong and refills were quick. Great entrées too especially for the price point.

Great space with modern but very warm decor on both the bar and the dining room sides. We went for the "bottomless Bloody Mary/Mimosa/Beer" brunch and it was well worth the trip. You get to pick an entry from the entire menu for the $29 deal and the bloody mary's were excellent. Get on in there and try it.

Love the atmosphere of Angry Pig. We both ordered old fashions which were delicious. The popcorn appetizer was to die for. Whoever thought to take popcorn and toss it in bacon, honey, and jalapeño, knew what they were doing. They give you a massive amount too. We also ordered the mushroom soup which came in an adorable cast iron bowl. It was flavorful, thick, and creamy. The jalapeño caesar salad was sub-par. I would return but opt for a different main course.

The food wasn't bad but it wasn't anything to write home about. I tried food people highly recommended. The wine was $20 for any bottle so that was good. No one was in the restaurant. Our waitress was nice but we didn't see her very much in the beginning. Rood presentation was nice. Nothing was bad but got the cost I think it could be better.

This place was great. Our server was very attentive and friendly. My boyfriend and I brought our nephew and they were welcoming. Our server joked around with my nephew which was very sweet. We had the chicken and waffles, steak and eggs and a Kid's burgers. Everything was delicious, especially the fried waffle. Honestly, $29 for bottomless and an entree is such a treat. I will be there again.

It was fine the food was good and the drinks were good bt service was just okay. It took us about 30 min to actually get our check and there were only about 5 others tables total in the restaurant so I don’t think it was because the sever was busy. The oysters were really, really good so that made it worth the trip. Service could be better but prices and drinks were good so that made up for the lack in service.

We hosted two millennials for a Saturday evening dinner. The offerings were not the run of the mill. And the vibe suited both generations with classic oldies playing and a sound level where you could hold a conversation. Loved the popcorn appetizer, avocado roll, duck tacos & delicious chicken. Servers were attentive. Solid meal with a reasonable enough bill.
