Came here for brunch a couple times. The wait staff is very nice and the food is good. Can't go wrong with $5 bloody mary's!

Took family (two teens included) for lunch. Only 3-4 other tables were filled, so very quiet. Wait staff was very accommodating to change menu to fit 13 year old's preferences. Food was prepared quickly, great flavors and portions. Was very pleased with service and product. Because it was December, we did not sit on outdoor patio along river, but in... More

We had a wonderful meal here before a show at the Cadillac Palace Theater, it was a cold evening. We arrived early and were seated much earlier than our reservation time, which we really appreciated! We were seated at a great table. Dinner was not yet being served, but we were able to order drinks. After dinner, we lingered over... More

This is a lovely place to get dinner. The food was delicious- - I had a salmon and pomegranate seed salad. There are options on the menu for under $20 (my meal included), so you can go on a date here if you are young and on a budget. It is very close to Millennium park, so you can go... More

The Bridge Tavern is a bustling riverside spot that serves a range of familiar casual bites. Although best experienced during the warmer months, when the terrace is open, this still makes for a cosy brunch spot. They offer a great selection of familiar favourites – burgers, egg hash, fried chicken and waffles – all tested (and approved) by our party!... More

We had dinner here during Game 4 of the World Series. We were given a table on the patio, so we had a great view of the tvs and even better views of the Chicago River and Chicago skyline at night - a beautiful sight! The hostess was very nice and accommodating and the staff was very helpful and friendly.... More

This restaurant's patio by the river is such a delightful spot in nice weather that the food doesn't really need to be great to keep it packed. The pleasant surprise is that the food is good -- fresh salads, street type tacos, good brunch.

We arrived without reservations, the room was bustling with activity and they were able to accommodate seven women who were so grateful given the chilly weather. The Tavern is adjacent to the Westin River North. What a Gem!!. Starting with the handsome manager who was such a perfect gentleman with a personality plus...the food and views were great.

This is truly a great place to end a day. The staff is friendly and helpful. The drinks are well-made and reasonably priced. The view of the city, the lights, and the river is spectacular. Just a super place to unwind.

Thank Dan S
