    As a picky vegetarian I must say the black bean burger with sweet potato fries is pretty solid, that is if you can make it through the long wait times!!

    Try the burger with goat cheese on a pretzel roll! I would upload a pic, but I housed the burger before I could get my phone out!

    Baja Fish tacos on corn tortillas are pretty good. Great views and good vibes.

    Starting this May (year 2011) this will be an absolutely must go-to destination, great food, beer, and location without the overcrowding of North Ave. Seafood galore!

    Great people watching - it's like watching Jersey Shore combined with Shahs of Sunset. Surprisingly not super crowded and the staff was pretty attentive.

    Owned by a longtime Chicago Fire Season Ticket Holder, the Dock at Montrose allows Fire supporters to catch away matches on the beach!

    Do yourself a favor get a beer from the bar and forget trying to order food. This place is so unorganized with servers running everywhere and getting nothing done. The beach is the only draw!

    Terrible service. They don't get the concept of helping each other to get things done faster/better. Food and location is great. If mgmt could run a better ship, this place would be awesome.

    Horrible customer service! Waitress was nasty/rude! If you want a water you have to leave your table & get it yourself. My friend had a draft beer with hair & sand in it! Avoid!Just enjoy the beach!

    The heavier bartender is a complete prick. Don't try to embarrass a girl for using a card to pay for drinks. You're in the service industry.
