Small venue but super friendly and good selection of beers, ideal for calling in after a long day walking around.

Related to the Billy Goat Tavern on lower Michigan in Chicago (snl: cheeburger, cheeburger, chips AND the curse of the billy goat at Wrigley Field)
Get a Chicago dog. Have a beverage or two at the bar. Nothing fancy, just Chicago style, friendly service in a busy city.

I am not sure what people expect heading in, but this was introduced to me as a nice dive bar with late night burgers and early morning breakfast. That is exactly what it is. It is not a nice sit down restaurant with table service. They have some named liquor in store and plenty of rail booze at reasonable prices in a jungle of expensive hotel lounges. It is an interesting triangular glass building. Ended up having a reasonably priced breakfast sandwich that was on grocery store toasted bread with eggs and bacon in it and a side of hash browns. Far more food than you would get next door at the Starbucks. Loyal conventioneer and local people in there each day. Go there for what it is.

Horrible! Absolutely the worst in every way! The place itself is in a nice building, but the restaurant is a dive. The service is pitiful, both at the counter & the bar. The food is sad and not very good. The girl at the counter had no other customers; two of us ordered burgers and fries, but somehow she managed to forget the order. I went to the bar to order a beer, and after I pried the bartender away from his computer, he served me a can of beer & didn’t offer a glass; before I could ask, he was back to surfing the web. Even he didn’t want to be here. I don’t know why this place hasn’t closed down or been condemned by the board of health.
