A new New American spot, offering seafood and chicken wings, has opened for business in the neighborhood. Called Hoots at the Fields, the fresh addition is located at 4059 W. Diversey Ave. in Belmont Gardens.
Hoots at the Fields offers chicken wings, chicken tenders, shrimp, waffle fries and more. On the menu, look for the snow crab legs with a side of warm butter, the fried pickles or the fried shrimp with wing sauce.
Hoots at the Fields has gotten a mixed response from its clientele on Yelp so far, but it's still early days.
Yelper Jeff H., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Dec. 9, wrote, “This place is so cool. So glad it is in this neighborhood. The food is amazing and the sauces. Can't decide if the Blue glaze dipping sauce is the best or the garlic parm mix I put on my waffle fries.”
And Kendall F. wrote, "Their ranch sucks. Tenders aren't crunchy they're soggy and the woman at the register was not friendly at all."
Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. Hoots at the Fields is open from 11 a.m.–11 p.m. on Monday-Thursday and Sunday and 11 a.m.–midnight on Friday and Saturday.
