Ok. So it is just a weird set up. We walked in and there was hardly anyone there (dinner time in Chicago) which should have been the first red flag! Anyway, the cooks/server just stared at us. We didn't really know where to go to...More

We basically chose this Navy Pier fast food restaurant for lunch because we couldn't resist the name. It's a loud and fun place. You order at the counter and your order is yelled to the cooks who immediately put it on the grill. Whenever someone...More

My wife had never been to Nay Pier so we stopped for a quick lunch before heading back to Minnesota. Looked like a place for a good lunch. Considering the outrageous cost of parking to get a quick lunch for 3, a little disappointed. service...More

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
