When you first walk in you are taken back to the history and feel of what you would expect in the 1940’s. There’s a small corner entry door. When you walk in, there’s a bar up front and you’re met by staff as soon as you walk through the door. Now that’s service! Let’s get right to it…The best Bone-in... More

I went to this restaurant with my wonderful man. He eats meat and I am eat a plant-based diet. I am reluctant to eat in places that serve meat because of concerns for cross contamination. I explained to our waiter and he was very careful in sharing my concerns with the chef who prepared my meal. I had a delicious... More

A famous Chicago hang noted for steak and ambience, it's hard to resist G$G's. We love the speak-easy feel of the bar and the personality of the staff. Our bartender had been working there 40 years. And his martinis he prepared were pay dirt. Not a Bond martini. G&G's are stirred not shaken but they are GENEROUS pours. We were... More

Upon entry with our large group (over 20) we were snaked through the bar and dining area of the first floor to the second floor. There were other large groups gathered and tables were pushed together. There was very little space between tables and it was not easy for people to move once they were seated. The food was good,...

It's been over 25 years since I last dined at G & G -- it was terrific in the late '80s, and is still wonderful today. Visited for an early dinner to celebrate my daughter's 20th birthday -- and splurged on the prime rib. While not inexpensive, it was the best -- melt in your mouth good. And the wait... More

We have been going to this location for over 20 years. It remains one of our favorite places to dine. It is family friendly with its family styled portions, however, also a great place to grab a romantic meal before a show.

A local friend of ours recommended this place to us while we were visiting from out of town. It was established in the '40's, with a sweet story behind the name and the origins of the restaurant, and that is it's vibe. It feels like a beloved neighborhood joint, it's menus (just a huge list of food without any description)... More

Went here recently for dinner and ordered a ribeye. Steak was very good and cooked well. Had some apps and sides like creamed spinach which I loved. Nutmeg stood out which I liked. This is an old school type of place. They serve meat cooked well and a nice selection of pasta and other dishes. So, not just a steak... More

We just had dinner here last week. It was very unspectacular...average at best. Everything was nondescript,not a single item that we had stood out. While it is "old school" and the service was quite good there are far better choices in a carnivore town like Chicago.

Bone-in rib-eye and filet mignon were excellent as was the service. Choice of potatoes--cannot go wrong.
