We were looking for someplace to get a sandwich for dinner where the four of us could talk. We were seated in the second room in a corner booth which was much quieter than the main room. The service was fine. Two of us ordered salads (steak salad and the orchard salad) which we both thought were just OK. One... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this place by chance. We were super hungry after walking all over Chicago. We saw they had pizza, and that's something we can always agree on. I don't know if this is "authentic" Chicago pizza, but it was AMAZING! We split a small deep dish, and the server told us we could choose two... More

Great restaurant with good atmosphere and tasty food. The pizzas and entree salads are great - they are really generous with the portions though, so be hungry!!

This place a classic Old Chicago type of place. Great for family get-togethers or after work drinking. AMAZING deep dish, ribs, and burgers. Their drinks are great too!

We find the restaurant just sightseeing and was a great surprise for dinner and eat a delicious pizza! Larger size is so big for only two persons, just a tip ;) you can customize your own pizza with many ingredient options.

Located just off Michigan Avenue near the Art Museum, Grant Park. Ribs were highlighted and very good. I had a Caesar salad which was excellent. Homemade dressing in the original style. Don't get that much. Service was excellent.

Went here to try a local place while in Chicago. There are two sides of the restaurant and were placed on the quieter side away from the busy bar. Had the app special, wings with a pitcher of Shock Top beer. The wings (buffalo) were great and so was the beer. Then we ordered a deep dish pizza, because we... More

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.
