    Such a great atmosphere. Good music. People from 20 to 80 years old. Nice food.
    Once the band finishes, you move to the second room for the next act.

    Very typical atmosphere! It was a great experience. For my part, I found the doorman friendly: just say hello and leave him a little tip and he's quite nice (in reference to other comments). The bartenders are discreet and a little "cold", but that's not a problem. Great music.
    Tip: come when it opens + choose the seats at the back left, high up on the bar.

    Amazing experience with the most genuine blues you could think of. We went on a slow Sunday but once we entered we knew we’ve come to the right place.
    Big shoutout to Travis Ried!

    It award to tell from th website what we were getting with a dinner reservation. The restaurant had live music and you get a two hour slot at your table. We went at 5 and there was a very good musician playing classic blues. The food is good but heavy--fried chicken breast, ribs, nachos. If you are into nachos these are very good! Service friendly but slow which is fine if you have two hours.

    Dave Herraro and band were excellent! Service was great and drinks were not expensive. One of the few places to find live music on a Tuesday night. Loved it and will be back

    Once one of the best blues clubs in Chicago, I passed by on 8 October. It was closed, with a "For Sale" sign posted on the door. Sad to see it go. One hopes for a second coming.

    Linda's Place is one of the best Blues Bars in Chicago. Linda is a gracious host and makes all her patrons feel welcome. The houseband on Monday Nights is The Bullet Proof Band and singer L-Roy. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to see and hear Chicago Blues in a bar setting
    I dont know the neighbourhood of the bar so it might be advisable to travel by car or taxi
