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! $29 for any entree and bottomless Bloody Mary’s, Mimosa’s and Shorts Local Light Lager!

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.

The ambiance and food were phenomenal. We waited a long time for our server...multiple times through out the night and didn't get the water we asked for. But overall it was a good experience. We'd definitely go back and hope for a bit more attentive 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.

We had a large party and and ended up having to add a few more people. When I tried to change my reservation online, I was unable to. When I called and let them know what was up, everyone was super helpful. When we showed up for our reservation, there was plenty of room at the bar to accommodate our ever changing party. The food was delicious and accommodating to all diets. We all had a great time!

This spot is a real step down from the other restaurants that have occupied this space, both in terms of food and atmosphere. They’ve taken a beautiful historic building and put TVs everywhere. Instead of the exquisite and inventive food served up by Spring and Trenchermen now everything is overdressed and relies on fat rather than flavor. The servers are very nice but on my last visit one kept encouraging us to Instagram our food. Such a turn-off. I live around the corner so I’ve given this place several tries and I actually think it’s getting worse, not better. I won’t be back.

Took my 15 year old daughter here before a concert at the Subterranean. Great atmosphere and super friendly staff. Food was served quickly and tasted great. I had a couple drinks during dinner and they were very good also. Very nice and clean. And the portrait of Joseph Pulaski made it all the better. Your my boy “blue”!

Living in the neighborhood for the last few years I have seen this restaurant evolve from Trencherman, to Trench to now the Angry Pig. We made a reservation to go for brunch, were immediately seated, and the service was great. There were plenty of other tables available for those with walk-ins. At our table we had the corned beef hash -- which was so delicious, and I had the avocado anti-hash which was...interesting, not bad, not good but a really interesting combo (pineapple, avocado, eggs, mango, pomegranate, cheese etc.) that I am not totally sure I would get again. I get they were trying for something fresh but my unrefined palate did not care for the combo. Overall though, the ambiance and price points were good. Would be interested to try them again for dinner.

first time visit to Chicago, The Angry Pig Tavern was great, I had the fish and chips, it was a little salty for me, the waitress took it back, the chef came out to apologize and said he would make me another one. it was amazing so good. I am definitely going back on my next visit and yes I have told all of my traveling friends to add this place to their list.

Ambiance and space was beautiful. Food was a bit lack luster, no flavor or spice. Heavy on sauces when not needed. Felt like the food could be bought at Costco and and baked from the frozen section.

Went to angry pig for brunch with a small group. The food was fantastic, the service was wonderful, and the value ($29 bottomless) can’t be beat! Unlike most bottomless places, they used good champagne not the trashy andres or cooks most places use. Only quibble was it was a beautiful day and it’s a mostly basement location. If they got a patio or porch it would be one of the best places in the city

The Angry Pig Tavern is in a great location. Right off the corner of North Ave and Milwaukee in Wicker Park. Awesome place to grab dinner and drinks. The food is delicious and the ambiance is great. The pictures are the wall are amazing. I won't ruin the surprise but needless to say, they're very unique. I definitely recommend the Angry Pig Tavern.

Almost feels like a small town tavern but in all the good ways. Solid starters, sandwiches, and mains that fill your mouth with flavor and are creative enough to hold ground in the midst of Wicker Park’s deep culinary offerings. The selection of charcuterie give the option for a evening hang out with wine, beer, and cocktails for whatever you’re feeling. As it’s new, there are a few bumps still being ironed out - a miscommunication resulted in a late (but then given free) appetizer, and Shoestring French fries that quickly got cold and didn’t have enough crisp or salt to be worth finishing.

All in all, great place, hope it sticks around.

I love coming to Angry Pig! It is our new go to place to meet friends and have dinner. Sometimes date night but mostly dinner on our way home from work. The menu is large enough that I’m not ordering the same thing each time. I also love that this place could be a dressed up night out or a casual evening. This is a wonderful addition to the neighborhood!!
