Wasn't overly impressed with the food, neither was my husband. It wasn't BAD per se, I guess I was just expecting more. Not a bad place to grab a burger, just don't go out of your way to eat here.

We didn't go to eat. We stopped at the smaller stand on the Navy Pier & got tropical goats. I'm very picky on what I drink because I don't drink often & this was amazing. It was sweet but not overpowering.

Our one big "miss" from our meals in Chicago. It wasn't bad, just nothing at all to make me want to go back. Basic burgers (very thin) with a decent toppings bar. Quiet, subdued and laid back. If you are at Navy Pier, there are...More

We got burgers and fries for dinner. The place was not crowded. The burgers were thin. The buns were very good but were too much bun for the thin burger patties in my opinion and I had a double. Service was quick enough.

Stopped in for a quick bite. My friend and I both had cheeseburgers and we shared an order of fries. The cheeseburger was pretty basic, but the bun was really nice. It was chewy and toasted and not at all mushy and gummy like so...More

I love this place! The atmosphere is different (I think better) here than the original, but the cheeseburgers taste the same. I like their pickles better than about any restaurant around. I will be going back!

We came here just for their double cheezeborger which I could have easily replicated on my BBQ. The characters who frequent this place looked very shabby too.

Food was not all that great. Got a double cheese burger, corned beef sandwich and fries. The burger was not great, the sandwich was just ok, the fries were really good. The service was good. Friendly servers and a nice place but the food was...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
