The drinks and food are okay. Service could be better, what was surprising is that I was charged for a drink that spilled. I paid did not want to ruin time with friends, but typically if the drink is still full establishment provide another.

I've eaten at thousands of restaurants around the world and I've had bad food and bad service. But never have I been so upset about the service (or total lack of it) than at Bar Louie Hyde Park. My wife and I were visiting Chicago - it was around 8:30 pm on Thursday night - about 2/3 full - about... More

I left the office early, so I decided to stop in for an early dinner and a drink. Though it was around 3:00 PM on a weekday, there was limited seating available. One of the few tables that had no one sitting at it had the lap top and other belongings of the manager on it. I did not see... More

Service can be pretty crappy. Lee is the best though very helpful and attentive. The food is decent. The drinks are pretty good if the bartender knows how to make it.

There is nothing special about this Bar Louie. It is not the type of bar where people are moving around and mingling. Everybody is seated either at the bar area or the tables. Most people seem to order food. The menu tries to be diverse, but in reality it's all just basic bar food. They have drink/food specials throughout the... More

The people who work here are great!! It was my 21st birthday that day and I was kind of upset because I was unable to get into the rooftop bar at our hotel because my permanant ID didnt arrive yet. So went here and it was a good choice. The man at the door looked at my paper and welcomed... More

Wendy is a horrible waitress with a huge attitude problem. She couldn't resolve an issue with a drink we ordered so I requested to speak with a manager. I guess she got upset about that and refused to bring my food out. So I requested a manager again. This time Wendy came out and confronted me by starting a yelling... More

Sticker shock. I asked the bartender for two double vodka tonics. It must have been an unusual order, because she had to confer with a colleague several times about which glass to use, how to ring it up, etc...eight minutes later, voila, my drinks! And double voila, the check! Over $38!!! Sheepishly and stupidly, I paid...my wife was thirsty. But... More

Located near the lakefront features a nice bar with good selection of finger /snack type foods like hot wings, burger specials and salads. Nice cocktails though they could be a bit more potent. Friendly crowd and good casual ambience. Walk your dinner off with a stroll on the lakefront to end a great evening.

We had a blast. The food was great and the atmosphere is nice too. This is a short walk to the beach. Parking was a bit hard but it's Hyde Park!!! The outside patio is nice as well. Eat here then go to enjoy the lakefront. ( voodoo chicken )
