On Saturday morning of my trip, I went to Luxbar, which was conveniently located across the street from my hotel. I had eggs, thick sliced bacon, and breakfast potatoes. The food was wonderful. It also looked like it was busy in the evening when the bar was open. Overall, great place to get in for breakfast with a much shorter... More

Ate outside, which was great, small bee problem, which was funny because our server was afraid of bees, but still above average service! Water with no ice cubes, steel cut oatmeal, and rich Greek yogurt parfait, all were great, but the apple fritter was splendid!

Came here for brunch with some friends on Labor Day. It was fairly busy, with most guests sitting outside. The brunch menu is fairly basic with nothing too exciting yet 2 of the 4 food orders were incorrect. One being the wrong type of sausage and the other being a traditional eggs Benedict served instead of the salmon Benedict that... More

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.
