Centrally located at the same spot since 1967, B&B has been a Chicago tradition for area people and city visitors for hearty breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktails. We have added the new and now famous home made French bread and Foccacia, and the dough is made fresh daily. We are proud and appreciative of our regular customers and eager to please new ones. Our bar has been updated with a new Sound & Light system, a dance floor, and satellite TV.

Good restaurant in downtown Chicago

I was in Chicago for a business trip, and this restaurant was very close to our hotel. Along with many types of brandy, the restaurant had very good chicken and beef dishes. I went there on 2 separate nights. On the 2nd night, the service was slow and the waiter apologized. The service on the... read more

Food was awesome but the service was so so. The girl never smiled even though we were one of the only 2 or 3 tables being served in the whole restaurant. Prices were good too for down town Chicago.

My husband and I looked forward to eating here as its location was perfect in relation to our stay at the Palmer House. On Saturday night around 830 pm, we arrived there for dinner.

We ate breakfast at this restaurant a few weeks ago. The food and service was good. This restaurant is open most of the day and night as it also includes a bar.

Decided to try the Beef and Burgundy while staying in the loop for breakfast. The food was ok, a little on the greasy side. The service was okay as well. Nothing memorable and I doubt I'll go back.

Right in the middle of the Loop, this restaurant has a good menu, great prices and excellent service. Combine that with a warm, inviting atmosphere and you have a winner. Came in very handy when not much else was open.
