Big and Bustling, Shaw's Crab House stands as a monument to fish and seafood. Besides the usual popular dishes, Shaw's management team is passionate about presenting treats such as Pacific salmon, fresh king crab, and smelt during their short seasons. Reservations made through Open Table will be for Shaw's Main Dining Room. If you would like to dine in the Oyster Bar, all seating is on a first come first serve basis.

The Erie Café's classic club-like atmosphere blends a cedar ceiling and exposed brick walls with new wood paneling, which is accented by original impressionist oil paintings. Featuring large picture windows simply draped in floral chintz, The Erie Café is the perfect setting for casually elegant dining, and seats 380 guests. <br><br> Entertain family, friends or business associates in our private banquet room, which can accommodate groups of 20, up to 200 people. Custom menu selections can be created to suit any occasion. The banquet room features a fully complimented bar, wood dance floor, and wood-burning fireplace. <br><br> Located along the North Branch of the Chicago River on Erie Street, The Erie Café serves prime aged steaks, chops and house specialties in a classic club-like environment.

"Suggested Erie Cafe to first-time guests to Chicago. We really wanted to sit outside and enjoy the patio but it was almost as good inside. It really did look like rain. Food and service always outstanding."

Chicago q is the modern urban BBq experience. <br /><br /><br />What makes q so good? It could be our savory North Carolina BBq rubs tirelessly mastered by ‘BBQ Pitmaster’ and Chef Partner Lee Ann Whippin. Lee Ann earned her place in the BBq hall-of-fame with countless accolades often featured on TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters and the Food Network. Our Chef Partner takes BBq seriously.<br /><br /><br /><br />

Carmine’s invites you to experience an unforgettable meal with authentic Italian recipes passed down from generation to generation. A true cosmopolitan hangout located in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, Carmine’s offers live entertainment, an extensive bar, and an outdoor café* that is the place to see and be seen from sun up to sun down. <br /><br />Whether dining al fresco* or inside the elegant two level dining room, even the most demanding taste buds will be overjoyed by Carmine’s impressive menu selections. Signature dishes include clams and oysters on the half shell, steaks and chops grilled to perfection, melt-in-your-mouth veal and chicken dishes, and of course generous portions of award-winning pastas. From the moment you are seated and served, you’ll understand why Carmine’s is packed with food aficionados every night of the week. We're now open for Saturday & Sunday brunch! <br /><br />*Unfortunately, we DO NOT accept reservations for the outdoor patio garden.
