3F is a must. I am going to the west coast on Thursdays and going to CCB.

While 3F is a great place, I think the loud death metal music is a little much for a 19 week old. Get there if you can but I'm not sure about the kid. They do have good food though. Two Brothers in Warrenville has decent food and is a bit more family friendly.

Revolution near milwaukee and armitage in chicago is good and if you go there, you will be close Piece and Map room. The Map room is a great beer bar, so while it doesnt fit your food requirement, I recommend it to any beer lover. Hop Leaf in andersonville is also a great restaurant with an amazing beer list, bottle and tap.

Tighthead in Mundelein. Not far from Mickey Finn's as listed above, but much better beer.

I agree. Just recently I started a thread asking something similar as the OP and received some good recommendations. I, along with my wife and 2 year old, visited 3 Floyds on Thursday. They do play loud metal music, but my little girl loves music, so she just danced and had a good time while I sampled the beer which was worth the trip by the way. It might be a little much for a 19 month old, though, especially since it is a decent trip out of the city.
We went to Two Brothers yesterday along with my parents, who live about ten minutes from there. The food and beer were great and the atmosphere was a little more relaxed. I definitely recommend Two Brothers, but it is outside the city a little ways. If you are able to make the trip, I do recommend going there.

Both Revolution and Haymarket are great brewpubs

Babies are fine in places like Revolution and Haymarket, there are plenty of families and kids in there, no problem.

Babies would also be fine in either Goose Island brewpub. They serve a bunch of beers on tap you can only get in the brewpubs, and operate independently of ABInBev. If you go to the one on Clybourn make sure you go around the corner to Franks n Dawgs
