This is the first time we've been to the Wheelhouse Diner for well over a year,but somebody today recommended their fish & chips which we were told is delicious & reasonably priced. Taking this advice my wife & I both ordered this meal complete with condiments which was well worth the wait being freshly cooked and was brought to our... More

This is my favorite breakfast spot. The food is always quick, tasty, and cheap. The place is small and usually hopping, so don't be surprised if you have to wait for a seat. Only negative is that tables only seat up to four people. Cash only!

Found this place while looking online. We met some friends in Boston and decided to start the day here. It's an old tiny dingy diner but the food is excellent. I had eggs with potatoes and kielbasa. It was excellent. I can still taste the kielbasa, it was that good. I would go back.

The Wheelhouse offers reliable fare at affordable prices. I enjoy sitting at the counter and watching the grill...especially at breakfast. There is typically a mound of home fries off to the side of the grill. The food is always hot and fresh. Visit The Wheelhouse for an authentic diner experience. 😃

Long Lines, cash only but well worth it if you don't mind the wait. Go for the corn beef hash with rye toast

Love this place for breakfast. Cozy little spot with the standard diner menu. Other choices include traditional Irish breakfast and their take on Italian breakfast (Italian sausage).

A true classic diner. We've been here several times and enjoyed great breakfasts each time. There are dozens of "Greek Diners" in Chicago, so we know our diners. The service is friendly and helpful. It was late morning and not as busy as earlier in the morning so we had time to talk to the cook/chef and with real pride,... More
