Always fun for the family

Can have long waits but worth your time. Food is good, nice drink selection and a fun staff. This is a great place for families but a bit noisy. Not a place for an intimate dinner and not meant to be, so go and have some fun.

My friend had never been and wanted to go so we waited the 1 plus hour (not uncommon) to be seated. Service was fine and the staff were polite. The food is traditional tourist meal quality. (Average) this is a fine place to go if you want a tourist experience but if looking for a local adventure you may want... More

We stopped here last weekend for lunch. They had a large seating area, so not much of a wait, which was nice. The food was good and reasonably priced for the tourist area. The drinks were good as well. I would return!

Really good selection of shrimp dishes, various preparations, including grilled variations for healthier fare. Good quality shrimp and priced accordingly. Food was very good. Can get expensive fast since most items unless served with fries are ala carte. Freckled lemonade was delicious. There is lots of seating...indoor and outdoor. If busy, expect to wait a while for your food to... More

I had the special on the drink menu a trio of shrimp and fish and it was delicious! My daughter had a Shrimper's heaven! It was great we had... More

Even if you aren't a fan of the movie, this was a cool place to eat. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the city. Fun menu items that reference the movie and the food was great. Delicious drink menu!

We decided to try this restaurant out-located at Navy Pier. The inside is very fun; filled with appropriate memorabilia from the movie Forrest Gump. Our waiter was very nice and interacted with us. Service was quick. My husband ordered Bourbon Street Mahi Mahi and I ordered "I'm stuffed" shrimp. He really enjoyed his meal, but I was a little disappointed... More

This was a great place to eat outdoors on Navy Pier. Food was well-prepared but pricey. I didn't read the description on my frozen drink so didn't realize it came in a souvenir cup with flashing LEDs - at $8. Had I been more attentive I would not have ordered that particular drink, as souvenir novelty items are not my... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
