Diner Reviews
  • "Well entertained the entire meal. Waiter was hilarious and band was fantastic. Had a great night. Having a reservation really helped with the large line up."

  • "My classmates and I went to Dick's Last Resort for 2 reasons: 1) as a bachelorette party dinner & 2) to celebrate the end of the finals & our summer semester as dental hygiene students. Overall, we had a great time! I do have 2 complaints though. 1) The waiter did not tell us how much the drinks were. I get that they are supposed to be rude, but not telling us the price was uncalled for. Even though it was a drink for two and you get to take it home, I would have liked to know that I was about to spend $23 on 1 drink. 2) I gave him $25 & my debit card & he swiped it for the entire purchase. Common sense tells you that if someone gives you that much cash, you either ask or apply the cash first, then run the card (which was my situation)."

  • "Dick's Last Resort is a lively restaurant. The joking around between patrons and servers is entertaining. The energy level of the servers is very high- not so easy with the numbers that come through the door! The environment is "rustic," so be advised. The food is of average quality, but the live music makes up for it."

  • "Overall the visit to Dick's on a Monday evening was pretty low-key as it was a quiet night in the restaurant. The music being played by the two guys was really good; however, we came around 8:20 and apparently caught the last set. It would have been nice to hear them play longer. I had the chicken and ribs. The ribs were great. I thought the chicken was a bit dry. My wife enjoyed the shrimp medley. Watching the boats go by, provided wonderful scenery. Overall, the servers and hosts did a nice job."

  • "I went to Dick's to catch up with my college roommates. It was the perfect place to have a beer, enjoy some good wings, and have an overall good time. The atmosphere is great from the loud waiters to some awesome music in the background. You're gonna have a good time and some great laughs. It's even better for first timers (my roommates) who don't realize that the waiters are.. Well dicks. And the view isn't too bad either!"

  • "This was my first time at Dick's Last Resort and I must say that I laughed the entire time we were there celebrating my brother's birthday! The digs and signifying was too much fun; our waiter was a gem! They allowed us to bring in a birthday cake and kept it while we went bowling before our reservation! Great customer service! The only drawback was that Open Table notes that Dick's validates parking at two parking locations nearby - they do not."

  • "Our extended family was in town for a funeral. During our weekend in the city we commandeered a tour from a concierge recommendation of the city. After a few hours of seeing the sites, we landed at Dick's for dinner. We were a mix of ages from 13 to 58. A fun time was had by ALL. Be in the right frame of mind for fun with a service staff that is there to entertain you. Great atmosphere, good food and drinks and lots of laughs. Fun time!"

  • "The food is terrible, the drinks (cocktails) are average at best and then you have to deal with the intentionally rude servers. If that wasn't enough, they then make goofy hats out of paper table cloths for you to wear on your head with ridiculous sayings, like "i've had more rides than a chicago taxi". One of our servers was actually pretty good, but the other not so much. When a supposedly medium rare steak came back well done, my friend asked if they could fix the issue, the one server said, "we've never had that request. do you REALLY want to ask that?" at which point, my friend wisely said she'd just eat the over done steak, fearing the worst from the kitchen staff... I would not recommend. Not sure who keeps this place in business."

  • "We took our 15 yr old twins and 12 close friends (ha!) to celebrate their birthday. Our server was hilarious and it was a perfect party. The kids loved the ribbing that they got from our server and everyone loved their hats. It was noisy mainly from us."

  • "I went here for my Birth Date, 5/10/79 and it was 5 of us.................oh did we have a ball! The waiter's kept us laughing and I love how they write crazy stuff on a hat for u! Mines was I Failed my IQ exam, lol! If u wanna have good food and a lot of laughs with a group of people, this is for u?"

  • "I went for my birthday and had a great time. I would definitely recommend this place. The atmosphere is great being right along the Chicago River and there's a live band!"

  • "I took my brother here for his bachelor party dinner and we all had a blast. It didn't hurt one bit that the food was ace and the waitstaff was unforgettable! Not for the easily offended, you have to be ready to banter back with them if you want to have the most fun, otherwise they WILL walk all over you. Definitely not for the unwitty."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Food was sub par at best. Staff were great, all the way down to the band. No plans to return."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "Went long time ago at other location, it was better and more fun back then, would never go there again, over priced food and drinks!!!!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Food was mediocre & overpriced, drinks were wonderful but very expensive, atmosphere was outstanding! Service was a little slow, possibly understaffed or our waitress was overseated w larger parties. She handled it well. Overall fun experience! I would recommend this restaurant and I definitely would go again if given the opportunity!"

  • "We made a reservation for 5:30. We were stuck in traffic and called and said we would be late. The man who answered the phone said "no problem." When we arrived they did not hold our table. There were empty tables and they kept taking other guests. We were told that our table was being "bussed". Ten minutes later we still did not have a table and the Host and hostess were rude. The food is not that good. My granddaughter ordered rib eye rare. It was well done. My chicken was ok. My husband ordered ribs and chicken. No potatoes..no sides. Our waitress was ok. Although it 10 minutes for my husband's beer to arrive. Maybe they should consider offering the burgers during dinner, always a safe choice. We will not return"

  • "Our family...boys ages 11 and 16...loves it here. We go early on weekdays because it's pretty tame then. Expect fun times and rude service. Insulting hats are their specialty - along with the wings! Yum!"

  • "We came w/ 2 teenagers 17,& 18 yr.old boys. Boys w/ a cocky comedic spirit. It was our last night in Chicago And Dicks was out pick for them, our waitress had their number from the get go. It was great !!! They loved her harassment. And the hats she made them, omg , spit on for 2 teenagers in this day & age of video games. They took their beat down w/ humor....I Loved it. The Loved that she topped me off with a hat saying"this is what happens to retired strippers " Lol , fun fun. Thank You"

  • "Being known for treating your customers poorly, dishing out insults, and making your experience "fun", I had high hopes. Unfortunately they were not met. Other tables were getting "the treatment", but our server must have been new. Food was o.k. at best, a bit on the skimpy side quantitywise, and a bit pricey. Hopefully the next time will be better. I've heard so much about this place."

  • "We had great food, cold beer, and a waitress with an attitude. Actually, she was tremendously fun and had a heart of gold to go with her sharp wit. I would go back the first chance I get."

  • "Last few times I was at Dicks there was a real party going on, last Friday it was not very happening. It has been a long winter, but this place could usually be counted on for a great time. Pretty quiet for the traditional 'Dicks' stuff. The band was good though."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "It was our 1 year anniversary and it was perfect! We're a fun couple so the stuffy candlight dining isn't our thing. Dicks was the perfect choice!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The place was cool. Would like to have gone on a non snow day. The crowd was kinda down and the band left as soon as we got seated good. SLOW DAY i guess. Waitress was great and the food not to bad. We didn't have anything heavy just drinks. I wouldn't bring my kids but friends coworkers. Late night fun spot -all i can say is at least try it once. Overall experience 3 out of 5 stars"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "The service was pretty good. We were the only people in the restaurant at 6pm on a Wednesday. The food wasn't quite as expected. A bit too greasy and the steak wasnt the greatest. I would only go back if I was going for drinks and a snack. Not really a good dinner place."

  • "Great place to go with kids. Probably not the best place for a date."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Inappropriate for kids. It's like Ed debevics service for adults. Food average and service slow. Waitress does not use common sense NOT to pick on young kids. Employees need to be trained better when to stop! Especially with kids! Will not be back or recommend."

  • "Had my boyfriends B-Day here & it was a BLAST!!! Great time!! The place was great & so was the staff. Only thing I have to complaint about & I almost took it to manager level except it was my boyfriends B-day & I didn't want to ruin it, was the argument the food server had with me. I get that the food server had food for 20 people to serve and he wanted it served quickly. but when your yelling at me & I mean yelling at me. "PASS IT DOWN!!" not explaining what the food is.. how am I supposed to know what is what & what goes to what guest? Then when I tell him to stop yelling at me, he decides it's time to stop serving food & get into a yelling match me! No.. I don't think so!! Other than that..It's a great place to have a get together!!"

  • "I made reservations a week in advanced, the lady up front try to tell me i did not have one, even though i was showing her my confirmation email. I had to wait over 20 minutes to be seated, next to the speakers. it was horrible. no one in my group could hear anyone talk."

  • "We enjoyed our first time at Dicks Last Resort. Food was overpriced, but that will pretty much be anywhere in the city. Portions are small, would like to have gotten more for our money. Overall we had a good time with lots of laughs."
