Dave the owner went out of his way to provide dinner for our party of 12 in the party room next to the restaurant with another larger group when the actual restaurant was closed over the holiday weekend. It was a very nice room, well appointed and the service was very good. The food was described by those in the... More

My daughter moved to Bridgeport last year and discovered the Gospel Brunch at the Polo Cafe. We had great fun singing along with the organist and interacting with the staff. The food and service were great. This is not a place for you to sit and be entertained, you are part of the event! No one hurries you along; you... More

I wanted to come here for my birthday with my family because of the great reviews. It was a cute restaurant but not that cute. I enjoyed the music it was not too loud. But I have been to other gospel brunches and this was a bit lame compared to them. The food was very disappointing. I had the seafood... More

We came across Polo Cafe and decided to give it a try. It was a sweet little restuarant that was as charming as the menu! The menu was just enough to find something that everyone would like. After we ordered it was interesting to look around the place at the small bits of Chicago history (mayors portraits drawn on a... More

Dinning at the Polo Café is a total experience. We were transformed back to our childhood days as we pulled up to this unique neighborhood restaurant located in a building that started as a neighborhood candy store, complete with tin ceiling and store front windows. Free street parking without a permit was readily available. There is a bit of history... More

We decided to try this place for dinner and what a great experience it was. I made reservations for 7 and upon walking in the front door there was only one other couple in there. That usually makes me a little uneasy but we quickly found out we have been missing out all this time. Our waiter was excellent and... More

This place is sort of a trip to get to (if you're downtown and don't have a car), but it was my husband's favorite place in Chicago. When we got there I couldn't believe it was #1 on TA (this is not downtown, the neighborhood is NOT posh), but the food was good and generously portioned, he atmosphere was unbeatable,... More

This is one of the first nice restaurants in Bridgeport. The owner took a chance and opened on Morgan which has never been the best block and it started out as a candy store/restaurant but is now a restaurant and banquet hall along with a Bed and Breakfast. Sunday brunch is unlike anything you have ever had before. Dave the... More

The food was fine but hardly outstanding; three of us had sirloin steaks. Our waiter seemed a little green. They did not have the wine I ordered - a zinfandel. He suggested a white zinfandel (ugh). They did not have the beers that my friend asked for; the waiter suggested O'Doul's. The signature desert is a crème brulee chocolate affair.... More

I called to make a reservation and was surprised to be speaking to the owner. We talked about his top rating and he was humble about it. I took clients for lunch and took a taxi from McCormick Place. The taxi driver did not know the restaurant and was concerned when we told him the address. He found it and... More
