We chose to eat at the Fireplace Inn because we were attending a show at The Second City Improv and they offered a dinner/show package. The Improv made our reservations for us and offered a special fixed price menu. When we arrived at the restaurant, our table was ready and we were promptly seated and served drinks. It was a Saturday night and the place was very busy and lively - it has a casual sports bar atmosphere and appeared to be a popular place for people to meet up with friends. Because of this, it is VERY noisy, so if you are looking for a nice quiet dinner, this isn't the place for it. For dinner I had the BBQ baby back ribs. They were excellent - very tender and the BBQ sauce was delicious. I got the mashed potatoes as my side and they were also very good. The service was friendly and very attentive. The Second City is only a block away (as well as some other comedy clubs), so this is a great place to grab dinner before seeing a show.
