Familiar with Harmony Grill @ Schubas?

We'll be attending a show (The Lovell Sisters...EXCELLENT bluegrass) at Schubas later this month. In looking for pre-concert dinner options I see that Schubas also has The Harmony Grill next door. Can anyone provide insight? We're not food elitist in the least, prefer comfortable places with one fork...but aren't looking for "Denny's" either.

  1. Good choice definitely for what you are looking for. Definitely a 1-fork comfortable place. I'd give it 2 out of 4 forks. The usually have a Friday fish fry in the summer. Get that if they have it.

    Another option if you're in the mood for Neapolitan pizza is Sapore di Napoli across the street on Belmont Ave.

    1. You might want to try:

      It's quite close by, @ Roscoe & Damen, and I think a step up from Harmony.

      1. Whenever we go to Schuba's, we go to Kuma's first. It's about a mile west on Belmont. The burgers are world famous. Featured on Triple D, Check Please and named by Playboy for best burger in America. Allow plenty of time as Kuma's is small and VERY popular. Great beer, otherworldly, choose the fixin's, mac-n-cheese, delicious mussels.
        It is loud as they play metal. Professional and heavily tatoo'd staff and risque art on the walls. Truly a Chicago original.

        1. Harmony has great onion rings, and in general is pretty good, but nothing spectacular. I second the vote for Kuma's, but you have to like your music loud!
