Me and my husband had our late lunch here and I'm surprise it wasn't that crowded. We were still able to pick our table by the window with a stunning view. Our server was nice and attentive. We order the mini burger, steak sandwich and creme brûlée The mini burger was tasty a little bit spicy but it was ok.... More

Instead of the regular payment trip to the observatory, do this option for free. Simply take the elevator to the Signature Lounge for free. At 7pm the lounge was full, it did not matter, we simply walked around and enjoyed the wonderful views without even having a drink, there is no pressure. Incidentally, the views from the Ladies loo are... More

I stopped here for drinks and a cheese dip with some friends. Don't be deceived by a short line that you see when you enter the door on the first floor of the Hancock Building. We got in line thinking the wait was only a few minutes, but much to our surprise, the one short line led into another corridor... More

We went to the John Hancock at 5:00 to get some drinks and see the view. There were just three people ahead of us on the first floor to get I to the elevator. Once on the 96th floor we got in line behind about 10 people. We were waiting for an empty spot in the lounge. It was sweltering... More

A friend suggested to grab a drink at the Signature Lounge in the John Hancock building. We were excited but didn't realize you have to wait for a table. It's not a bar you just stand around at. They seat you at tables. We left and came back later in the evening because we didn't want to miss our dinner... More

Went here on a saturday afternoon for lunch after hearing it was the best place to observe the impression Chicago skyline thats not an overcrowded touristy observation deck. BEST LUNCH EVER. Friday and Saturdays the restaurant has a buffet lunch menu deal for only $20. Not only is it delicious, hot, and diverse in fare; if you decide you don't... More

After dinner at Ditka's, walked over to Hancock Tower. Went to the Signature Lounge for a drink. So pretty. All the lights in the distance was spectacular. So worth the price of the drink for the picture taking opportunities without standing out on a ledge!

Over-rated. Couple things to remember when going here. If it’s on a weekend night, or maybe any night, plan on a wait. You will be waiting in line to get IN the elevator, and then once you get to the top you will be waiting to get a table. Now we were about to leave but because there were 4... More

The view from the 95th is amazing. Lots of tourists are visiting the restaurant and the lounge bar. The drinks are relatively expensive and the meal are correct. Try the platter of raw sea food at the bar. It is super fresh!

We went up here on a late Thursday night, and as everyone will tell you, the view is spectacular. It was packed. We were lucky enough to get a seat right by the window, and before we left, we made a loop around to check out the views from other parts of the building. Even the bathrooms have floor to... More
