Sat at the bar and the service was great. Waitresses were very sincere and work very hard to clean up and get the food to you.

My wife and I stopped at this Hooters for lunch on our way to Chicago. Ok, we didn’t just stop in, we actually did a Google search (“Ok, Google, navigate me to the nearest Hooters”) and ended up here for lunch. The first thing we noticed when we pulled in the parking lot was two people standing outside with a... More

Nothing new or different. Service, atmosphere, and food is just as good as any Hooters we've been to throughout the state of Indiana. You won't be disappointed!!!

All you can eat wings on Monday. The food is good for Hooters but the service is slow whether they are busy or not. Waitresses seem to cater to friends and people they know.

Much better since they updated this location! We visit often & the manager is present & walks around asking everyone how their doing. The mahi fish tacos are really good!

Best Buffalo Sauce anywhere! Forget about the short skirts. Very close to hotel almost directly across the street?

Hooters is Hooters. The food is good for that type of restaurant. The serving staff is friendly which gets some guys in trouble. However, be smarter than to take your girl there. Love their wings They have the best of the theme resturants.

The food was just too good to be a Hooters but how pleasant it was to know that you were at Hooters. The other Chicagoland Hooters should use this locations food service as the standard. Bri provided great service with a smile. Ken came around and made us feel very welcome and invited us to come back. We definitely will... More

Recently stopped at Hooters in Merrillville on a Saturday afternoon. Heard they had great burgers and deep fried pickles so, I tried them both. Establishment was busy because of the upcoming Christmas holiday. We were seated in an area that wasn't quiet as noisy as the central dining area. Our greeter was pleasant. Food was ordered and the fries came... More
