And we did not order one of their special 'cooked to order' and 'to die for' desserts! Owned by the same company as Cheescake factory this restaurant is in a league of it's own! Request to sit in table 104, 105, 106 and view the crowds below as you dine and enjoy the sumptuous experience! Hint: loved the Fried Chicken... More

Enjoyed the view of people scurrying by as we ate our lunch. The portions are way too much but the food choices are expansive. Seemed too much like the Cheesecake Factory.

We almost left because we thought it was a Chinese food restaurant, from the decor, and we weren't in the mood for Chinese. The menu is huge and it is fabulous. I'd recommend taking a stroll around the restaurant and looking at what everyone is eating, and definitely check out the dessert case before you order. They look amazing. They... More

Had lunch on a Saturday afternoon around 1 pm. Happened to get lucky and saw a couple sitting right in the corner table overlooking Michigan Avenue paying their bill. Asked the waiter if we could wait and have their table, and they graciously obliged. Wonderful view! I ordered the lunch special.... which was a great value for the money. 1/2... More

Nice atmosphere with lots of seating. Menu was extensive with something for everyone -- burgers, salads, pastas, Cajun, steak, fish and more. Service was excellent. Worth the 30 minute wait to seat 8 of us on a beautiful summer evening. Recommend for families, friends and couples.

We had a great waiter, the food was delicious worth the price. I had the Crispy Carmel Chicken very tasty. ( a twist on Szechuan Chicken )

A friend always suggests we should try the Grand Lux and I am so glad we did. We arrived at 5 on a Monday night and sat right down. The place is beautiful but it is acceptable to be casually dressed. Our waiter was wonderful. We had a couple sandwiches, pizza, and Memphis ribs. The portions were huge! We ordered... More

We stopped in while shopping the Magnificent Mile and were surprised by how nice the decor and ambiance was. The service was quick and pleasant, the food was great as well. We had the spaghetti marinara, chicken parmesan, a turkey/Brie/apple sandwich and the manhattan salad. The portions were generous and tasty.

Went here on a Friday for Lunch with Family at 130 PM. Seated fairly quickly (within 10 minutes) Service was prompt, kids food was some of the best "chix fingers" i've seen :-) Wife and I had salads- All fresh ingredients and served quickly. A little pricey for lunch, $70 but had 2 cocktails :) Ask to sit in the... More
