It's in a good location right across from the Art Institute and has a nice comfortable atmosphere. It's a decent place to meet up with someone and have lunch.

The service was great ! However the food was generally very salty and heavy. It was not tasty even though I was quite hungry. I would not go back because of the food.

The food was pretty good. It was what I would expect from a restaurant in this price range. Definitely didn't find the staff to be overly friendly, but they got the job done. It was a convenient location, and nice environment. Moderately priced. Would not...More

Yes, there were kids there when we went for lunch and they have burgers on the menu. It’s on Michigan Ave across from the Art Institute so there are many tourists in the area.
