Just like Cheesecake Factory

We had dinner here on a Sunday night over Memorial Day Weekend. We only had a 5 minute wait because it was already 9pm. The restaurant is a spitting image of Cheesecake Factory.

Great food selection and wonderful desserts. Wait time was about 20 minutes for a Sunday afternoon (holiday weekend). The Chicken Madera was tasty but the desserts are amazing.

Grand Lux Cafe's MY "favorite" place on The Magnificent Mile. CanNOT go wrong, start with a spring roll OR Pierogies. Depending on your taste buds, order the Miso salmon, catfish, Parmesan pork chop, chicken pot pie, pot roast, rainbow Thai salad, OR Santa Barbara chicken. MUST have a VERY CHEAP freshly prepared HOT DESSERT including beignets (with three dipping sauces,... More

An expansive menu in an expansive room. The food was good with variety to keep anyone in your party satisfied. The Beignets were highly recommended and they did not disappoint.

Although the hostess was not very welcoming, the table service was exceptional, as was the food and ambiance. Food value was good. I would return.

Great food, Great staff, and the DOUGHNUTS!!! This is a retro building that serves great food, bread and desserts all out of an open kitchen. Excellent value as well.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
