The Red Lion is not your typical trendy Lincoln Park bar and that's the great thing about it. The first level is tight quarters and has a sloping floor and few tables. Sidle up to the bar and chat with the bartender and you will most certainly learn something you didn't know before. Colin is one of the owners and oftentimes behind the well stocked bar. The Lion has been around for quite a long time and has some Chicago history behind it. I can't recall all of the things, but I believe that one of the things is that the Shakespeare Theatre started there.
English fare is on the menu as well as chicken sandwiches and burgers. It is filling and tasty and a good price.
