Better than expected

Walking into a restaurant under the most touristy spot in Chicago, I expected mediocre, overpriced food. Thankfully I was a bit too pessimistic. We went on a Sunday early afternoon. The menu was filled with some delicious looking brunch options. I saw a few walk by and was tempted to order. I opted... read more

This outdoor location has so much potential that is squelched by a limited menu. Our order included the hummus & pita with withered carrots & celery, a plain hot dog with bag chips and the turkey plate. The turkey plate with texas toast was tasty. In fairness, I heard the waiter telling another table that a delivery truck had not... More

Stopped for lunch in Millennium park. Was concerned at first because it is a very limited, slightly pricey menu. Ordered BBQ pork sandwich and BBQ smoked turkey. Was not disappointed. Great food, great location and very friendly staff. There is also entertainment that was starting later in the afternoon.

The food is good, but the waiters are in a real hurry to get you out of the restaurant. The prices are reasonable. One bad thing that bugged my party of six was the unisex bathrooms and the shortage of bathrooms for a large restaurant. The good thing is that this restaurant accommodates wheelchairs.

We had toured The Institute of Art and were headed by (tired) feet to the Magnificent Mile, just to experience it. But first, lunch. As we passed through Millennium Park searching for the remarkable Bean, we passed a hot-dog place and walked into the Park Grill. What a terrific surprise! The menu offered great variety and our server, Alejandro, made... More

We have been going to the Park Grill for years and have enjoyed the atmosphere (wintertime, ice skating and summertime park views) in addition to the food. This is the second time I have been there and thought it had slipped a few notches. Now there is no view - having been replaced by another restaurant/bar tent view plus food... More

We ordered different foods. My fav was salad and chicken with oregano. Sandwich was good as well. I personally ordered turkey burger, it was alright. Mushroom ravioli is good too. Clean and great service but lil pricy. I will go again though.

We visited with friends, who took us to this restaurant in Downtown Chicago. It is in Millennium Park. Actually, this business has different venues within the Park, an indoor eating area with covered patio, portable food stands throughout the park, and an outdoor eating and bar area. We ate at the latter. In fact, we ate at the bar because... More

Good service, great food, a beautiful view and all in the middle of all the downtown fun. Definitely worth a visit - but can be very popular so make reservations.

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.
