City Works - Wheeling
Great food and server, Katelyn, was outstanding
We had a great dinner. The Buffalo shrimp appetizer was spicy but good. I had a flight of cider. My kids and i all had the filet sliders which were cooked perfectly and delicious. My husband had a spicy chicken wrap which he loved. We will definitely be back here. It was great.
Hi Stephanie, I'm glad you enjoyed visiting City Works! Come back again soon! - Staley
This was our second visit to this location. The first time everyone was very helpful and friendly. This time our server never even came back to check on us. The food was adequate but not great this time. I will probably try it one more time to see if I get a better feeling.
Had Reservation wrong. Six people at a table for four. Problem was solved and the manager took care of us.
A fun high energy place. The menu is limited though. The burgers are great and seem to be their specialty. But the few other items I had over two visits were OK but not great. The tuna tacos were just OK.
Food was good but the service was extremely slow.
No one came around to ask if we needed anything. We had to flag another server down twice to get more water and our check.
Excellent quality and taste of the food. I had a burger and it was cooked exactly as asked. Beer selection was great. Wish they would add more choices.

Food was excellent. Good thing they take reservations since there is no where to sit while waiting to be seated except for the bar. Was worried about noise at first cause my cousin has a little hearing impairment but it was fine with us sitting next to each other at a table. Birthday dessert was killer good. Kung Pao cauliflower and dry rubbed wings were great appetizers and highly recommended.
Fish tacos were delicious and filling! Our server Chelsea was great, very friendly and great sense of humor!
We'll be back!

We went to the Rock and Roll brunch - expecting r and r music or a band etc. Brunch items were named after singers - thus r and r brunch and huge TVs blasting sports. Drinks were tasty as were our entrees however the beignets were hard and chewy, we should have returned them. Service was ok, waited a while to be acknowledged and get drinks. Most likely this was due to short staffing.
Everything was good. The manager came over to apologize for the wait. We’ll be back!

Wait until the newness of this restaurant wears off. They were not able to keep reservations based on the high volume of customers trying out this new restaurant. We were seated about 30 minutes late and the kitchen was really slow as well.
I do recommend this restaurant but give it a month or two unless you're OK with long waits.
I understand this place is relatively new however, management has hired a lot of inexperienced staff. Not sure if they are receiving on the job training but training is needed by some. We had reservations so waiting for a table was not an issue and we were seated early. That's where the good stops. We were seated and right away our server was asking for our order without asking if we wanted water at the table. Water did not come until the end when we asked figuring it was not coming unless we asked. We ordered drinks (tasters) and appetizers and she took our entre order as well. To our surprise, all the food arrived at once. Two minutes later as we were trying the appetizers, she came by to see how things were going without noticing there was still water on the table. Then she disappeared and it was not till we were 90% finished that she returned to ask if we needed anything else. We wanted another beer taster but at this point, we asked for the water and that ended that. For dessert, we asked for three spoons to share and it came back with 2. No complaints on the food. Popcorn chicken and Cheese curds were great and the burgers were very tasty and done to our preference (all were very very good). Good selection of local craft beers too. So if you are looking for good tasting food, this place is great but try not to expect too much of the servers as they are still learning service, timing and delivery for I fear these are mostly new workers to the restaurant business (not fast food service which is way different than restaurant service).
A little loud our server was just ok. Seemed new to being in that industry as not attentive enough. Took a while to get to us at the start had to ask who server was. Food very good but loud!!
If you love beer - this is the place. I'm a wine drinker and hope that they get a much better selection for my return. But everyone I was with drinks beer - so the variety was very appreciated. Food was good. Service was terrific, but slow, be prepared to wait.
This place is brand new, and has not yet been discovered for lunchtime dining. We sat outside, and had the Patio to ourselves. They have a full range of drinks and beers, but a seemingly rather limited food menu. There were four of us in our group, and we all ordered something different. All the food was fresh and tasted very good. This is a large chain style restaurant, so it was a little surprising to see how small the menu was. The prices seemed pretty reasonable for the amount of food served. Overall, everything was very good and I will certainly go back and eat there again. Go check it out!
First time we ate there and it was great!
Amazing food and great server!
Everyone was beyond friendly. It was so impressive that we actually suggested to our friends to have dinner there that night!
They were surprised to see us again but we were so excited to share our experience with our friends. They also thought it was fantastic as well!

City Works is still working out some kinks in there process - we were seated at our table but then no server came to greet us for at least five minutes - this does not seem long but it really was too long - the manager finally came over and apologized. The food was good we had hamburger and chicken fried sandwich - I liked the French fries. I would like to see more soup options - it would be great if they added a French onion soup option. Good bar place and with later night hours could be an excellent options post theater eating.
We found that City Works is a great place to watch sports. The only problem being,the food takes second fiddle to the beers.
We had an excellent evening at this place. The food was yummy, our server was very attentive and on point, and we were able to converse easily with the other couple that we were with. We even had a visit from the manager, checking to make sure everything was good. We're looking forward to going back.

Very nice place! Burgers were great. Two managers came to our table to see how things were! We sat outside which was perfect.
Great! Food was delicious!
Wonderful time. Great food and top notch beer!
Great new place. Will be back, next week!

Wonderful! We were a party of 8, all first timers. The manger went above and beyond what was expected of her. She was gracious, accommodating and extremely friendly and professional. Our waitress was so kind and patient. Overall service was exemplary. We will return soon.

I’ve been here 4 times and have enjoyed each experience. Obviously, the 90 beers on tap are a huge draw, but the food is also very good “upscale” bar food and more. We’ve enjoyed the duck nachos, amazing smoked chicken wings, burgers, short rib tacos and, the best thing, tuna poke tacos.

Service was fast, food great and price reasonable.
Food took a little long. They don’t serve bread before meals or salads. Nice beer menu. It’s more of a bar type restaurant.
We had great drinks (beer flight, cider flight, cranberry mojito) and delicious food (burgers, tacos, wrap) and will be back for sure! The menu is not huge but we really enjoyed everything we ate!

Great food and a variety of beer choices. Everything was delicious and the service could not have been better. It was a bit pricy for the food though

We went for the first day of their brunch menu. They have so many great choices, it was so hard to choose. Everything thing we ordered we outstanding. So good I can’t wait to go back and try something different.
Hi there, I'm so glad you had a great time dining at City Works! We're happy you're enjoying our new brunch menu—which item was your favorite? - Staley
The music was always the same beat loud and not conducive to eating.
The beer menu is extensive with many unusual beers on tap. Food is good. I enjoyed my Ahi tuna salad. It was cooked to perfection. What makes this restaurant stand out is that the general manager Nicole leads her entire team to treat customers with respect and connect with customers. Customer service is definitely a priority in this establishment. Also, physical space is very inviting. Great addition to our neighborhood.
