Been here many times in the last 10 years but think it has gone downhill. Coffee cup chipped. Asked for Albuquerque eggs to be hard, ignored. The breakfast was lukewarm and the eggs including whites were runny. Service was fast though

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
