We attended this dinner show as part of our first family trip to Chicago and knew that these kinds of dinner theatres can be cheesy and touristy. However, we found the show to be lacking and slow to start. The food was absolutely terrible. We stuck with the chicken to be on the safe side and it swam in a... More

Look, you go to this for a reason. Its an old fashioned taste in the for of parody of a bygone era that defined Chicago. The food was good, the staff fun and friendly. Really good people putting on a show for decades! Sit back, relax, have a drink ( but hide it from the cops) and have a old... More

They try to recreate a 1920 speakeasy but the hustling of souvenirs is a little much as patrons try to eat. The staff are both the servers and the entertainment with some better as servers than the entertainment. The script of the show is a little cheesy but the food was terrific.

On September 27th I received booking confirmation and then the day before we are supposed to go I get an email saying they have sold out for a private booking. I am offered other dates that don't work and request a refund...no response. Have sent a second request for a refund....still no response. Maybe it's better to buy tickets at... More

Was with a group of 40 seniors on a bus tour to Chicago. Our group stopped here for the show & dinner. The venue is a converted warehouse-type building set up to look like a garage that old-time gangsters might have used. There were long tables for many people to sit at. Space was cramped at these tables but we... More

From the greeting at the door, to the meal, to the show, this was a wonderful evening out. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

4 Brits and 1 American had an amazing time on Saturday night at Tommy Gun's Garage. A very professional show which was hugely entertaining and great fun. The garage was very atmospheric and you really felt that you were in a SpeakEasy back in the Prohibition days. Definitely worth the money. Don't leave Chicago without a visit.

Great fun and entertainment! Servers are your entertainers and they are all very good. Lots of singing, dancing and comedy. Opportunity for a photo shoot and plenty audience participation. Food and cocktails great too!

My wife and I went to Tommy Guns Garage our first night in Chicago and it set the tone for our entire visit. They make you feel like you're back in the 1920's. The food and service is very good and the entertainment is outstanding. Your servers are also your entertainers. This is not cheap, but it is well worth... More

Staying in South Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you happen to visit during football season, you may bump into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park is one of Chicago’s premier locations for green space and recreation with views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Take a stroll down memory lane in the historic Prairie District where you can enjoy views of old historic homes. Restaurants, theaters, and clubs are spread throughout the neighborhood along with a collection of burger joints along Michigan Avenue just across from the park.
