Great location, right by our home. Have never been there at night time, but I will say the lunch is quite good, and we will definitely be back soon. Thought the prices were very reasonable, but the service was just okay.

Went with one of my co-workers and had to opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the day. The server (forget her name, brown hair, glasses, mid 20's) was very nice. She gave us the perfect amount of attention without crowding us. She gave her recommendations on the menu and we each tried one. Food was GREAT. My burger melted in... More

This place was recommended by our concierge. Regardless of how you hear about it, you should stay away. The food was pretty uniformly disappointing. Hummus appetizer was flavorless and the seasoned vegetables that came with it tasted as though they were soaked in water. The steak frites was average. The buttermilk fried chicken was way below average but the skirt... More

The buttermilk chicken was awful! The manager took it off of the bill . You will have better luck at KFC

On a very crowded summer evening along Rush St., we were able to get a high-top table at Luxbar with only a minimal wait. The downstairs room is quite loud, but we weren't surprised as every table was full. The Maker's Mark Old Fashioned was fantastic - I would go back just for drinks! Truffle fries were delicious, and we... More

I wanted to like this restaurant, after all it was a Friday night and it had been a long week. The family was in the mood for some Americana fare for dinner. Overall the dining experience was inconsistent. The chips and salsa were a good appetizer. The mac and cheese side dish is to be avoided. The lake perch special... More

We had high expectations given the pedigree of the place. While service was terrific, the food was disappointingly average in taste and presentation. Portions were generous in size--we would have preferred smaller portions with better quality preparation. Wine selections by the glass were limited and bland. There are many better options within a five minute walk.

The atmosphere inside was ok as well as the outdoor seating, yet nothing special. Food was good and price worthy. Service however kind of poor and inattentive. All in all that makes it average.

Initially steered to it by our hotel,when we asked where to watch World Cup final,we were welcomed and looked after although only partaking of beers. So after a shopping spree in nearby Rush Street,we returned to be satisfyingly 'fed and watered' by attentive staff. A broad based menu available,but this was lunch,with a big dinned pending later, so the soup... More

Originally tried to book a group of 20 at Gibson's and was directed here to their restaurant across the street. My first time there and was very pleased. We had the entire upstairs to ourselves which was great. The bartender and banquet manager (I'm annoyed I can't find his card) were amazing and worked their butt's off to make everything... More
