We were looking for an Italian restaurant but came upon this place in the Printers Row district. They have indoor seating as well as patio seating on the street. We opted for outdoor seating and were told we could sit any where we wanted. A server brought out cutlery and glasses and announced that our waitress would be with us... More

We joined my sister for dinner after a long day of traveling and were eager for a relaxing meal. The patio was just what we wanted but the menu was a bit limited. Great spot for burger and fries but head elsewhere if you want a non-sandwich entree. The kids menu was basic: grilled cheese, etc. my daughters ordered the... More

I enjoyed dinner with a friend who recently moved to Chicago. The sandwiches we ate tasted great. The main attraction was the onion rings. They're onion rings so they aren't the healthiest but I consider myself an onion ring expert. These were the best I've eaten. They are stringy and they come out hot. No ketchup or mustard needed.

Our group of 6 adults were looking for a place within walking distance of the Hilton Chicago. The concierge recommended Hackney's. We ended up going to Hackney's twice for a late lunch. We all tried something different, including vegetarian options. I ordered tilapia tacos. They were crispy with a side of beans and rice. The beer selection is good including... More

While waiting for an appointment in the neighborhood, my wife and I went to Hackney's for dinner. We each had a burger and they were tasty and the fries were hot and good.

We decided to eat at Hackney's based on a recommendation from a friend. We were glad we did! My husband & I each got burgers & boy were they delicious! Service was quick given how busy it was & prices were pretty standard compared to elsewhere. The restaurant itself & the bar area are beautiful. It has been well maintained... More

We enjoyed this little place. The burger and fish tacos were delicious. The cheese curds were also good. Hummus was a little plain and probably wouldn't get that again. The drinks were cheap and good. We would definitely go here again.

Our first visit and was recommended by our hotel. It was just okay and would not return. Service was good but food was just average. Didn't have a great menu selection and felt it was overpriced for the quality of food.

I was happy to find this little gem! The wait staff were attentive and the food was delicious! The housemade cole slaw was perfect. It is a place I would definitely return for food and drinks.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
