The food was very mediocre, we did not enjoy it at all. The fish smell was a bit overwhelming for me. The service was pretty good.

Very attentive waiter with a good sense of humour. Freshly prepared shrimp and the ambiance was brilliant; So much fun with all the sayings and memorabilia from Forest Gump.

one of the must places to eat at- very unique inside atmosphere; huge menu selections; excellent wait staff; gift shop; location at Navy Pier is a plus too! (Pricey however for what you get); some drinks include the glass to take home.

The shrimp dishes are wonderful! We went there twice in the five days we were there. The shrimp scampi was my favorite!

I visited Navy Pier and was looking for a place to have lunch. As I was near the sea, I thought I should try some seafood dishes. Our tour guide on Big Bus tour said that this was a famous and inexpensive restaurant. The food was good, however way overpriced. My friend and I only order one seafood dish and... More

We went to the Winter Wonderland at Navy Pier on New Years and I was not impressed The food reminded me of a Applebee's or FGIF Fridays level. But the portions were smaller. I had the seafood fest and was still hungry afterwards. Our 4 kids aged 21-11 said the same that it was just okay. Not bad but not... More

The Forrest Gump lovers' and runners' "must go" restaurant. Love the Forrest Gump atmosphere! The shrimp and cocktail were great! The shop has a lot of cool items for sale. Unfortunately couldn't find a t-shirt I liked of my size, but got a beautiful office mug! Run Forrest Run!

The atmosphere is quirky (based on the movie "Forest Gump" and the service is great. I particularly enjoyed the shrimp tempura and the shrimp mac and cheese. Sadly, we don't have one in Wisconsin, but every... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
