Located centrally on Adams Street and very convent if staying on the area hotels. Only enjoyed Breakfast at this location but base on how excellent breakfast was any meal would be great. Service was fast and friendly and food while not cheap was a good value!

Being English born, I and my cousin were naturally drawn to eating dinner here and we were not disappointed. We arrived without a reservation but were quickly seated in a nice booth. The place was very popular and crowded and our waitress, Bernadette, made sure we were advised she was extra busy at that time, but she looked after us.... More

I've been here several times. Elephant & Castle has a variety of items available for lunch (maybe dinner menu is the same?). It's a bit English Pub in theme but with Irish stained glass decor over the bar. Heinz "HP" sauce (a British ketchup-like condiment but darker as it's made with molasses and has a curious clove-like taste) is on... More

Rain was threatening so looking for a standard fare close to my hotel. I had eaten at an E&C in Boston so jumped in when I saw this location about 8:00 pm. Was seated immediately and I estimate the restaurant was about 90% full. My order of a garden salad and craft beer came out quickly although it was skimpy... More

We stopped for lunch with another couple. Service was very quick and attentive. I had the shrimp stack and my husband had a club sandwich. We were served in under 20 minutes and the food was quite good when it arrived. It was a quiet restaurant and the service and beer were excellent.

My husband and I stopped in here for a drink around 9:30pm. We were staying next door, so the location was what drew us in. The bartender was friendly, they had a unique drink selection, and prices were good. We didn't try any food. Plenty of seating too.It's definitely a bar atmosphere. At this time of night I would not... More

My wife and I were touring the city looking for a nice pub for lunch. Her hamburger was OK, but my butter chicken flatbread was "TO DIE FOR!" They had a nice selection of beers, the staff was very good and prices were reasonable. Lunch also was prepared quickly. All in all a very good experience.

We stayed at the Central Loop Hotel and were happy to have a cool watering hole in our hotel. The happy hour was great, the food was o.k. I had the "Fat Elvis" for breakfast which was advertised as a fried french baguette stuffed with peanut butter, bananas and bacon. It came out as a hotdog bun stuffed with peanut... More

FIRST time going to this place and the three of us all found something to eat from their varied menu. Keep in mind that they pretty much offer pub grub, so expect several fried choices. Good selection of beers and other drinks and our waiter was nice and attentive.

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.
