Frontier is a warm, multi-level space replete with a 40-foot bar, private party room, open-air kitchen and beer garden. The West Town tavern features state-of-the-art ice taps with 16 seasonal and traditional beers, over 20 varieties of canned and bottled beers, specialty cocktails and wine pairings. Grab dinner and drinks on the main level and then head upstairs to the lounge to watch your favorite game and enjoy live DJs on the weekend.

Executive Chef Brian Jupiter has created “farm to table” dishes celebrating American contemporary cuisine, blending game and other seasonal ingredients into classic and approachable fare. Frontier’s menu also features up to 20 varieties of oysters as a signature offering to order a la carte with dinner or to enjoy with a bucket of beer at the bar. For large groups, Frontier can smoke an entire pig, lamb, goat or wild boar for the ultimate Frontier flavor experience.

The 2,500 square-foot outdoor beer garden, a charming patio separated by floor-to-ceiling windows, is fully winterized and open year round with a full service bar and food service.


Frontier is 2012 MICHELIN Guide recommended and has been included in Chicago Reader’s list of “Favorite Restaurants of 2011.”
