We stopped here for lunch while at the Park. It was run of the mill. We had three different dishes. The hamburger was average, the BBQ pull pork sandwich was above average, and the nachos were terrible. But, it was nice to sit outside (if you like that) and the waitress Anne was very good. TIP: The restaurant has no... More

the outdoor setting just below the millennium dome is great. Nothing else is. We got nachos for an appetizer. Nice guacamole. But it sat on stale chips with a glop of nacho cheese. Maybe a few jalapeños on top. Very pricey. How about real cheese, some beans and run it under a broiler? Saw the burgers and salads served with... More

We recently were invited to dinner at the Park Grill with a large group of family and friends (16 of us ranging from toddlers on up). The staff, and particularly our waitress, did a flawless job of handling the mob. The food here isn't high cuisine, but it's not meant to be. It's solid American fare. Every dish was as... More

Wasn't a fan of their burger, very dry and not tasty at all. Service was good..but was a long wait. Bring your own lunch to park and enjoy your time together.

We had lunch there in the outdoor area - tons of umbrellas to keep you cool. Server we had was Anne and she was great on the refills of water - it was a hot day. Service was fast and friendly, food was good - not totally great - just good.

Visited for lunch on a recent Sunday afternoon. This was our second visit to Park Grill. On this day, the floor was filthy and service was sketchy at best. Food was fine. But for four people for sandwiches for lunch I expect more for $150.

The Park Grill is located in Millennium Park. On a Tuesday night around 6:30, I was able to get a table without waiting. Chips and salsa were good as well as the brisket tacos. I’m from Texas and am very particular about chips, salsa and tacos. These were good for a non-Mexican food restaurant. Prices were moderate to pricey. Wait... More

Two words. Truffle Fries. That's all you need to know. When we went here, I have to admit I didn't have high expectations – I thought, thanks to it's incredible location, that the food or service would suffer. Not so. We went for lunch with a group – and had exceptional service from Todd, the food was fantastic (our group... More

You'll find the Park Grill near the 'Bean', Great location, friendly staff and almost foodie menu. This is one of my neighborhood hangouts and highly recommend it for families, small groups or romantic dinner.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
