About the restaurant
Get your Brit On at Elephant & Castle! Nothing feels as warm and inviting as sitting down at the pub and sampling a taste of Britain. The old Union Jack behind the bar may be faded, but the mood is vibrant. Located on the Corner of Wabash and Lake, just steps from the legendary Chicago Theatre and two blocks from the scenic Chicago Riverwalk in the heart of Chicago's theatre and shopping districts.

The noise level made it difficult to have a conversation. Turn down the music please. Besides that, it is a great place. The service and food were excellent.

Located near the main entrance to Navy Pier, Harry Caray’s waterfront location, outstanding smoked barbecue, great selection of local craft beer and a world-class collection of sports memorabilia combine to create the ultimate Chicago dining experience. Guests are treated to dry-rubbed meats that are smoked for hours over hickory for maximum flavor and tenderness. The menu also offers salads and burgers.

About the restaurant
Pizano’s Pizza & Pasta blends classic Italian recipes and fresh takes on traditional fare in one satisfying menu. The son of Pizzeria Uno founder and deep dish creator Rudy Malnati Sr., Pizano’s owner Rudy Malnati Jr. knows what makes an Italian dish truly delicious; high-quality ingredients, authentic recipes, and excellent service. Bowls of seafood marinara and chicken alfredo share menu space with bubbling deep dish pizza and Pizano’s award-winning thin crust pizza, a favorite of critics and visitors alike, including Oprah Winfrey, who featured the restaurant on her show. Located in the heart of Jeweler’s Row, the Madison Street location embodies historic Chicago dining, as timeless songs by Sinatra and Martin fill the air while diners gaze at numerous photos of famous athletes and entertainers line deep, rich wooden walls.

Really enjoyed the wings. Came for the thin crust. Pizza on Oprahs recommendation. Very good but thin crust pizzas are enormous- so had a child’s one which was ample. Their own brand pilsner is pretty good.

Great place to watch games or hang on patio! Food is delish and also good for big groups. The mimosa tower looked so good but the beer list was the bomb!
