This place is a great find in Lakeview on Halsted. Valet parking starts the visit, followed by a friendly greeting, fast seating, and an older crowd vibe with tables close together but still conversation friendly. Waitstaff was not only friendly and efficient but knowledgeable and...More

Had brunch with friends at Erwin's. A great place, with excellent service. A well trained staff who know what they are doing. Has a decent brunch menu that was fairly priced. Food was prepared very well, and thoroughly enjoyed by our party of four. Recommended.

Good food, not great. Kinda weird atmosphere with oldies playing, and most of the customers in 40 to 70 age range. Burger was good, fries were bad. Portions were on the small side. Desert was very good. Mushroom cakes were good - not great. Essentially,...More
