Reviewed May 5, 2014

Had an excellent filet, cooked exactly to order -- medium rare plus. Margaritas were well made. Cocktail shrimp were enormous. Overall very good meal.

“Excellent Steaks”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Steaks are always excellent. For lunch, try their steal salad. Service is always good. Nice view of the Chicago River and great people-watching inside.

“Lovely lunch overlooking the river”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

It was nice enough out to be able to sit outside and enjoy the views. Service was excellent, and the lobster BLT was delicious. The prices are high, but the view is worth it.

“Terrible!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We went here for lunch. A tip for the owner the long mat that you walk in on is old, dirty and worn out - get a new one it looks terrible and not a good first impression but I guess in this instance it was an idea of what was to come. The staff were inattentive and rude. The manager walked around with arrogance but didn't do anything. The food was gross. My husband had a steak pie which the steak inside looked like it had come from a bucket of slop, mushy and so over powering of salt - he came away with food poisoning. He emailed them and complained and we still have had no reply. Do not bother going here - it's just not worth it!! Absolutely disgusting.

“Great restaurant with views over river”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

This restarant sits beside one of the chicago bridges. It was a lovely day and we were given a table overlooking the river. The service is frst class and the food is wonderful. The lobster is great as are the burgers. They have a good selection of wines and the waiters are very attentive. Lovely relaxing experience in the sun.
