This is a restaurant that requires building in wait time before being seated. On the weekends, 1-2 hours of wait time is possible. You usually can get in in less than an hour during the week. Whichever, the food is amazing. Little things like crab or lobster omelettes are from another world. They have family style seating also that is fun. You meet other people by discussing the various dishes that everyone is enjoying. Thanks God it is off of the beaten path. Otherwise, they would have to triipple the size of the place!

We went on a Monday at 11:30. The wait was over an hour, the place is so tiny. People are sitting on top of each other. There is no food that is worth that long of a wait in uncomfortable conditions.

The food is very good but the waits are crazy. It is crowded and noisy. Fun to go once or twice but too much of a hassle to make a habit of it.

My wife and I have been on a quest to locate the best "chicken and waffles." As of today "Batter and Berries" has taken the crown. This quaint restaurant (located in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood) provides you with a sweet potato waffle that includes chicken pieces (in the batter). Additionally, the maple butter topped waffle comes with a fried chicken breast topped with hot sauce. The savory, spicy, and sweet flavors mix well, and you actually don't have to use syrup. We were blown away by how Good this dish was. It was a lot of food, so we both had the remaining half for dinner. Great job "Batter and Berries!
