While walking around we found this little place and when we walked in the place we were welcomed by one of the owners. All of the waitstaff was so friendly and nice. The drinks were good and the service was excellent. We didn't eat there...More

My husband and I decided to stop by for a drink and dinner. I had the turkey burger and it was all right. The music was so loud that I couldn't hear my husband from across the table and that was a little frustrating. Also,...More

Our dinner at McFadden's left a lot to be desired. I had the mac n cheese with chicken - but there was absolutely no chicken. Fish and chips were very bad also. Service was also pretty poor. We'll go elsewhere next time.

Once again, Nate, the bartender made our early afternoon weekend lunch delightful! (This is not a "saloon" unless you come here late at night with a band and DJ blaring away, then it is a whole atmosphere!) Nate, my wife, and three boys even discussed...More

Whilst waiting for our room at the Public to become available we wandered into this bar. We had a cold beer and a bowl of chilli, which was great value and very tasty. We returned one evening as we liked the bar.

Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of
Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The
original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion
here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic
mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also
find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred
restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping
fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The
