I have eaten at a lot of Chicago restaurants with customer and friends and finally made It to the Grand Lux. A large menu that has something for everyone. Food quality was excellent and prices that are very reasonable, especially on Michigan Avenue. The French dip and the chocolate cake were highlights on this trip. A large restaurant with ample...

The Grand Lux Cafe is a go to place for lunch, dinner or late night. The menu is extensive with everything from comfort foods to decadent desserts. There is something to hit the spot for everyone. Service is always on point and the price is reasonable. I love the fried pickles, the short rib and grilled cheese sandwich and all... More

This appears to be a sister company of the Cheesecake Factory. Somewhat similar but not the same menus. LOTS of choices, big menu. Great lunch specials. Have tried a lot of things, all were excellent!

Though the wait was long, the food, service, and decor were really good. Extensive menu with something for everyone, and pretty affordable, given the location. Definitely would eat there again.

It always looks like there was a long line outside of this place. I'm not sure why. Maybe it is people that valet parked. Don't let the line outside the door prevent you from going in. We have always been seated very quickly. The inside of the restaurant is huge. They have an extensive menu, delicious food, and great service... More

We came for some small bites to this restaurant in the heart of Chicago and the Magnificent Mile. Service was very friendly and attentive. All food portions were very large and tasted delicious.

Space and scale: The seating area was spacious and huge. We sat at a table on the second floor. Touch: Visually it was contemporary decorated with a... More

No wait on a Friday evening at 6:30pm which was fantastic given that we were weary travelers! Fantastic service! Nice ambiance. Kind of like Cheesecake Factory, but with a better view of the city and a more focused menu. Good food! I had the barbecued salmon.. I would recommend it!

We have been to this place about 6 times. I have never been disappointed with the food or the service. I have had salads, tacos, pasta. My husband has had a few other items. Prices are reasonable for the heart of downtown Chicago. Service has always been good and the servers are friendly. You also get a nice view of... 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.
