Tommy Gun's Garage delivers the rat-a-tat style with fun and laughter. The food was great, the show was hilarious, and the hospitality was right out of 1920. Thank you for making my mother's 99.5 birthday one to remember!

Our group was visiting Chicago for the American Society of Plumbing Engineers Convention. Tommy Gun's Garage was our dinner stop for the evening. The plumbing engineers had booked the entire space for the evening. Upon exiting our motor coach in front of the restaurant we were greeted by the biggest gangster you would never want to see on the street.... More

Tommy Gun’s Garage is quintessentially "Chicago" from the 1920s. It captures the attitude, fashions and “lingo” of the Prohibition Era. Everyone connected with Tommy Gun’s is “in character”, and many of them are performers on stage and mingling among the audience, as well as being the wait staff during the evening. We visited Tommy Gun’s Garage in October, 2014 for... More

April 26, 2015 I was very disappointed when I took my family to Tommy Guns to celebrate my mother's birthday and all the food they served was cold and nasty. The Prime Rib was rated very high, but it was nasty. When I called to let them know about the food I spoke to Ms. Chris the sales manager and... More

My friend from France was in town for my wedding, so I took her to Tommy Gun's Garage. We both enjoyed it! This was a very entertaining show and perfect for an out of town guest that is curious about Chicago in the 1920s. I actually ended up getting picked to on go up on stage (interactive show)!

Very entertaining right from the first time I read the brochure that states dress like a gangster. As soon as I got out of the cab the show started with these guy's out front. The stare down with the man and the machine gun. The others yelling "watch his hands, watch his hands truly made one feel he was entering... More

We were in Chicago for a weekend getaway and went to this show, which was fun -- nothing to brag about, but we had a good time, even though it is expensive. The area is not in a good part of town, so there's no need to get there early because you can't get in until right before the show.... More

We had a blast on new years eve ringing in 2015 with the staff of Tommy Guns. Show is a bit old school but the personalities of the actors was great - shout out to you Muscles! Cost is a bit pricey but it was 7 hours of entertainment, food and drinks.

We went with a group of 20 people for a night out. Never had so much fun! The food was delicious and the show was great. Very entertaining.

Neighborhood Profile
South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you happen to visit during football season, you may bump into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park is one of Chicago’s premier locations for green space and recreation with views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Take a stroll down memory lane in the historic Prairie District where you can enjoy views of old historic homes. Restaurants, theaters, and clubs are spread throughout the neighborhood along with a collection of burger joints along Michigan Avenue just across from the park.
