It's fun if you have a special occasion for a little girl. They try hard to make it special, but at the same time it's very cookie cutter kind of service and meals. There's a set menu with choice of the main entree. They have...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

I believe you are able to order a cake even if you are not having a party there. Call the customer serve number that is available online and they will confirm it and you can then make your reservation and order the cake.
