Great food, great location, easy parking, great staff and nice outdoor sitting. The decor is classy and appealing to the eye. Will take my date there anytime again. I visit this restaurant at least twice a year

While visiting in Chicago recently we dined @ Wishbone & enjoyed some lovely breakfast items! The menu is quite varied & offers some Amazing Cajun type foods that were very Lovely! We had crab cakes, cheesy grits, "red eggs" which was a delicious dish with beans, fried eggs & salsa! Everything was very fresh, except I found the cornmeal muffins a bit dry. The coffee was also Amazing! Service was Exceptional as well. They also serve a cafeteria style lunch that they were setting up for which also looked very good! Would Definitely recommend this place & would love to return!

Great country food in Chicago. I highly recommend this place. Delicious Southern cooking. Especially like their crawfish cakes, a little stronger than crab cakes, but totally delicious. Catfish when you can get it is awesome. Street parking sometimes a challenge, but that's Chicago. Enjoy!

We had extremely poor service at this restaurant. It was on a Saturday night and it wasn't very busy. There were 8 of us and for some reason the server wasn't very attentive. It took awhile for him to take our orders. After the food arrived he didn't really check in on us and never offered to refill our drinks. The food itself wasn't bad but the lack of service overshadowed the whole experience.
