We, the owners of Links Taproom, are beyond thrilled to take over the Schoolyard Tavern. We will be closed for a few weeks as we work diligently to provide you with an excellent neighborhood tavern experience. We thank you for your patience during this time, and we cannot wait to reopen our doors and welcome you back in. We hope you will agree it’s been worth the wait.
Schoolyard Tavern is a neighborhood institution that has been here for almost 25 years. It is the place some of you have come with your friends to grab a drink and watch the Marquette or Illini game. It is the place some of you have come to enjoy burgers on the patio with your families. It is a place that is near and dear to many hearts, ours included. We have incredible task of carrying on the Schoolyard name, and we promise we will respect and cherish it as we welcome it into the Links family.
When Schoolyard re-opens, you will find an enhanced beverage program featuring a curated selection of local craft beer on tap, along with new specialty cocktails. You will also find a scratch-made menu of tavern food favorites, as well as some new items from the Links menu, such as our award winning Cheese Curds and Buried Alive Fries (Handcut fries topped with chorizo, bacon, cheddar, scallions, & giardiniera). Most importantly, you will find a passionate and knowledgeable team eager and ready to welcome you back in to your favorite neighborhood tavern.
