Four of us, each with something different, each got a taste. Food was good, fresh, and served with a smile. We were there in the afternoon, so it was not busy, we plan to try it again at a mealtime.

While in Chicago for a hockey game we had lunch at The Rosebud on Taylor street. Service was first class and the food was wonderful. An historic restaurant with great atmosphere. If you are going to be in the area be sure to stop in.

The portions are large enough for sharing. I do not believe there is a charge for sharing. This is a very customer focused restaurant, so I don't believe it would impose a sharing charge.
