Sat outside. Waited 15 minutes. No menu. No server. No food for me this time. Been here before didn’t get treated this way last time. I’m a server myself and I know a rush but I always touch the table with a hello at least. I don’t even write reviews but it’s not often that I have to leave a restaurant or bar because the service is literally not there. Need to get more people out on the floor or something.
Great food and cocktails, friendly and welcoming staff. Too many TV’s make it difficult to connect with your party.

The manager or maybe owner seems like an unhappy person and isn't the best part about this place. But literally everything else is to die for, awesome bar staff, great food and it is so cool inside!!

Willie Lill’s is often less than advertised. Two examples:1) The advertised kitchen closing time is 11pm on weekends. But they do last call for food at 9:50pm on Fridays. Good luck if you walk in at 10.2) It’s a bar with TVs. A place you go to see the game. In February the Daytona 500 rained out into Monday, which was President’s Day. They closed down around 5 or 6pm (before the race was over), no less than 7-8 hours before the advertised 1am closing time.The alternatives close by are Duffy’s, which sometimes smells of sewage; or Derno’s, which boasts a tureen of something they label “love juice.” It’s possible our expectations are set too high. But it’s probably worth a walk elsewhere if you want a sure thing.
Great game watch location! I’ve stopped but occasionally for drinks and the service was always on point. Today I arrange to meet friends for the Iowa women’s tournament game. Not only did they have the game on most TVs but they also had on the sound! Maryssa was our server and she was top notch! Food and drinks were great! We hope to be back again soon!

First time here today and I’ve lived in this neighborhood for 2 years and glad I discovered this spot! Great atmosphere and love the indoor/outdoor seating. Good music, lots of TV’s and friendly staff! 5/5

Oh what fun! Christmas came early! Me and my buddies had such a BLAST here. Great service, even better company! Cold beer and smiling faces - what more can a girl ask for? A must stop! If you’re in the area do yourself a favor and stop by!

So… i showed up here having NO idea what the night had in store and boy did they not disappoint. My friends and I showed up here (one of them recently got fired) and ended up having the time of our lives. The liquor (and good times!) were flowing easily. It’s very safe to say we will be customers again soon. One of my buddies had the half sheet of Nachos but might as well have been a full sheet! The other had a smash burger and I had to clean the sauce off of his face when he was finished. It’s our favorite spot in the area, and I’m not sure if you’re all familiar with the hog up front but we will be back again riding it soon!

It's a nice environment, it's just not a great value in my opinion. I got cheese curds and one drink for $27. I should have looked closer at the menu. The starter had an entree price, in a side serving. Loved the knickknacks, and the vibe, servers were good, only thing stopping me from coming back is the pricing.
Pulled pork- runny/wet, no flavorMac n cheese- soupy/runny, you could slurp the milk in the bowl, no flavorBeers- expensive imoDJ- loud, couldn’t talk to the person next to me without yellingService fee- 4% but you get it taken away if you pay cash, weirdSports- not really welcoming if you’re not an Iowa or packers fan on football weekendsHas potential but not a good experience

Awesome customer service and great food! The owner (I believe that’s who it was) had gone around multiple times throughout the night to make sure everyone was happy with their food, drinks and experience. It was a super fun atmosphere to watch college football with tons of TVs. Decorated great for the holidays and played awesome music!

Yesterday was my first time going there for a Packers game. I am hooked as it is a great environment and super friendly staff. Keep up the good work, and add that Chicken Gumbo with rice on the menu!

Nice spot for drinks and watching sportsIn the process of killing time I strolled into Willie Lill's to check them out. I couldn't resist seeing that they're fairly new to the neighborhood. I had the pleasure of working with Lexi who mixed me up a yummy Cracker Peppercorn Watermelon Martini. I don't know who's smile was brighter, her's when she greeted me or mine after I took my first sip of this amazing drink. This place feels so cozy with the woodsy bar feel. There's indoor bar, table tops and patio seating. It's well lit and certainly great for groups. Thanks for the cocktail and great service Lexi of Willie Lill's!

a very fun place with an outdoor patio and a preposterous number of TV screens. More bars need to do the live band karaoke thing! however it was extremely loud by the stage!

Such a cute place off diversey! They just opened in May and this has become my new chill spot to grab drinks with friends. The atmosphere is so cozy and the food is super enjoyable. All of the servers are so kind as well as the greeters!

I have almost never done a negative review (you can view my many reviews), but we came here Sunday night after a street fest nearby. We love live band karaoke. My friends requested a song, and I requested my song right after them, and gave a tip as I always do with karaoke. Both my friends sang, and my song was never called. My friends whom I requested a song right after sang and 6+ people sang after them. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. I bring many of my Meetup groups (up to 30+folks) to karaoke bars, but I will never bring them here. You have lost my business. Very, very disappointed. Thank you.
Haven't been to live band karaoke in awhile, this place rocks! Highly recommended, good times!

Went to Willie Lil's last night for their live band karaoke and it was amazing!!! They had great drinks and wonderful food and the live band karaoke was the best I've ever seen. Everybody there had a great time and we got up and sing a couple of songs ourselves. I guess they're having it every Sunday at 9:00 p.m. I'll be back next week and every week for all my friends to rock out🤘
Response from the owner: Thank you, Josh for taking the time to do this awesome 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 review for #WillieLills
Solid new spot, with a awesome drinks, patio, and food. Downside: Ran out of Ketchup by 5pm (hard to believe when its next to a 7/11) and they sneak a 3-4% service charge on your bill which is not cool.
Response from the owner: Hello Zach... Thank you for taking the time to do this review for us. We thank you for the feed back on this. We cant just go next door and grab ketchup though, we have to buy things at restaurant supply houses and distributors, per the health guidelines of Chicago. We hope you understand , and give us another try.
I LOVE this place shout out to Abby!
