    The crab cake is an awesome appetizer! Don't overlook the Mac & Cheese options as a side (they come in half sizes if a full is too much). Great atmosphere!

    We came there for lunch, enjoyed very good food, fantastic beef bacon, service was OK - not bad but not exceptional, ambiance is a little oldish and somewhat stuck up but a very solid place

    Just a great place. Love the outside dining and the wine list. Steak, but of course.

    Awesome Chicago spot right on the river. Seating outside is best if weather permits. Filet, whipped potatoes and that bread. A last meal wish. I also love the raspberry martini.

    The riverside location of this steak-and-chops joint is such a big part of Chicago’s vibe that it may surprise you to learn it’s not a Windy City original (the chain started in New York in 1977). Read more

    A seat on the river. A glass of wine. Just hold on to your napkin - it can get a little windy!

    James is an excellent waiter and James the General Manger was very helpful. Fish Tacos were excellent.

    This place is overpriced and mediocre. The server was totally lacking in restaurant experience. Paid $12 to add two overcooked shrimp to a salad. Had a clearly short pour for a $13 glass of wine.

    The Signature Bone-In Ribeye was perfectly cooked. It's also huge at 24oz. Ask for outdoor seating in the summer and by the window in colder months.

    Steak cooked perfectly but rather bland. Check the blackboards for daily specials. A steakhouse and no steak tartare!

    Pass on this one. Went last night. 2 out of 5 meals were sub-par. The bone in rib was nearly all gristle, reminiscent of a Ponderosa steakhouse. The fish was overcooked and dry. Salmon ceviche was bad

    The bone-in rib steak and Kansas City sirloin pack in loads flavor, but you won’t go wrong with an Australian lobster tail or grilled swordfish. The fantastic shrimp cocktail is worth the $17 splurge. Read more
