The food here is absolutely incredible. Best food in Chicago. And the portions are amazing. Great prices as well. You order from a qr code on the table and see what's available for the day. We had shrimp Mac and cheese, salmon cakes, and biscuits. Chef is really cool. The place is super homey, No Bs. And the area is great for a stroll

My wife and I heard about this place and decided to try it. We were not disappointed. We had the shrimp and grits and the chicken and waffles. They were delicious !! Chicken was cooked perfectly. Great service and atmosphere. Enjoyed the motown vinyl playing. Definitely give this place a try. We will be back !!
