Absolutely wonderful and gorgeous view of the city. Enjoying a nice cocktail with this view is spectacular. Definitely worth staying if you can get a table by the window. Otherwise I would be hesitant. The cocktails are mediocre at best. I ordered a mojito and it came drenches in simple syrup, for the price and the type of establishment you would think they would make it with real ingredients and fruits. It has become a very touristy and production type place. I agree with the previous review though, the women's bathroom has the best view in the building!

We went up around 9-10 pm on a Sunday evening. We got an inside table right away. About 30 minutes later they moved us to a window table. The views were great. Drinks were high priced but we expected that for the location. $16 on up. If you don't want to spend the money just go up to the women's bathroom in the hallway and check the view from there. You can see navy pier and a few city lights.

The observatory was OK, nothing out of the ordinary. The haze over the city did impede the view and photos taken were not very clear. We decided to have a drink and snack on the 96th floor in the lounge. The lounge was noisy and the service was slow. We found the prices expensive and an 18% gratuity was automatically added to our bill. We felt that this was excessive as the service and quality of food didn't warrant a tip of 18%!

Dont bother. Very dated setting and overcrowded. If you dont book ahead you wont get any view. Drinks expensive also. Might have worked in the 80's but not anymore

The view is well worth the 20-30 minute wait for the elevator! The drinks were also great, but a bit on the pricey side - FYI. Also, if you're a female, be sure to catch the view from the women's restroom because it is the best!
