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

Although not as high up as the Willis Tower, it is still high enough to see the city and get a good view of what is going on.

Yes, the views are great but the service is sub par. My friends and I (group of 5) wanted a table by the window, one wasn't available so we were seated elsewhere. After spending over $120 in drinks we saw a table opened up (2 or 3 of them actually), we asked if we could move and the host said... More

Yes, the drinks are a bit over-priced, but it's quicker and easier to get up here than to get to the observation deck, and it's a stylish and fun place to have a drink. And flatteringly, they svn ID the over-60's before you get in the lift!

Went there on a Saturday evening. Made it to the top after a 20-30 minute wait (The 360 Observatory at the top of Hancock was a 2.5 hr wait at around the same time). Good view of the city, but kind of depends where you find a place to sit. It is NOT an alternative to the much superior views... More

This place is famous for the view! we really enjoyed it - the line at the elevator was not long, went up very FAST to the 96th floor! You can have a couple of drinks and enjoy the beautiful view! A bit overpriced but worth it. Before you leave - hit the ladies restroom for the view. BEST TIME TO... More

This is a great place to see the view of the city - on the 96th floor of the John Hancock tower. You get to go up for free and can relax and have a cocktail. It's very nice and the very best view available is in the ladies restroom.

We visited for drinks one sunny afternoon, and were amazed by the fantastic views. A great way to see the city from above, and it wasn't crowded at all. The view from the women's restroom is not to be missed.
