I've been eating at this restaurant for many years with my family. It has always been a safe 'go-to' place for the family's trips into town. I'll say our trip in this past Saturday was disappointing. The service was the biggest issue. We had a party of 4, got 3 sets of utensils/napkins. Usually, the waitress would bring bread. You... More

My friend and I ate her for lunch around 2pm on a Saturday and it was excellent! There was only a 15 minute wait. I ordered the shrimp scampi and she got the alfredo. Definitely recommend this restaurant!!!

Always a treat when in Chicago. I had the Chicken Pie which meaty and full of veggies. Ron had Salisbury Steak which was also yummy and served with potatoes and veggies. Sad they were out of Carrot Cake but the beignets were great

Let me quantify my review by saying the menu and the atmosphere remind me of the Cheesecake Factory - which is a good thing. Although I don't believe it to be a chain and they don't specialize in cheesecake. When you walk in the lobby it it has a rich look with dark wood paneling and gilded accents. We had... More

Lunch for 4. Restaurant was very busy but the wait for a table was not long. The food was very good. Service was a little disjointed. Portions were large. Prices were fair for Michigan Ave. We would go back.

I know it's touristy and essentially a souped-up Cheesecake Factory with a view. It doesn't matter. This place is a must-visit when you come to Chicago. It has an extensive menu. I ordered the turkey burger, and I absolutely loved the fresh, crusty bread they used. I've been multiple times for different meals and drinks, and nothing will disappoint. Expect... More

Our meal was excellent with help from an amazing waiter who gave us a rundown of all the specials and good that the Grand lux specialised... More

We've gone here multiple times. The menu is huge,so there really is something for everyone. The portions are large. Many items can be split. The desserts are amazing, ....consider getting one....splitting is definitely a good idea. The service is excellent. The servers are helpful and friendly. There is a children's menu. We've never brought children, but would do so. I... More

Staying in Magnificent Mile

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
