Power LunchGreat spot for lunch. The roasted chicken french dip was fantastic. Lots of business professionals from around the area.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWas seated immediately, the food was great as always. We had the Chicken Nachos as appetizers, then I had ordered the Green Chili Burger which has a poblano chile, along with a side of seasoned fries, it was so delicious. Our server was Nicole, and she was great, very attentive. Then for dessert we had the brownie sundae, just one was enough for 3 people. Overall experience was Excellent, will be coming back soon.

A wonderful Mothers Day meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEclectic Menue Very Good FoodI was surprised by the eclectic mix of Pub Style food with Asian, Mexican, and American cuisine influences. Literally sushi to tacos to meatloaf. Everybody in our party of seven could find something on the menu that suited them. The quality of the food and atmosphere was exceptional and the prices are reasonable. It has a great bar scene and the place filled up quickly. Great place to bring a group of friends or family to hang out and have a pint and great food after a long day.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time at Hub 51We had a great experience. My mom, sister and I had a fun girls weekend in Chicago. The food was outstanding! that is an understatement for how the food tasted.. I was so impressed with the Chilean sea bass it was in a horseradish broth. It was unlike anything I have ever had. I am from Southern California and am used to fresh fish so I wasn't sure when I first ordered it. We loved the selection of food because we all eat so different. We tend to be more vegetarian so it was nice to have lots of healthy choices. We had the nachos and vegetarian sushi roll for an appetizer. We will for sure be back to experience more amazing food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPlayful menu and ambianceI love the energy of this place, and the variety of their menu will please even the pickiest of eaters!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the eclectic menu, serviceLove the eclectic menu, service is very good, and it's just a fun time. Always enjoy coming back here when I'm in Chicago.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time Diner at Hub51I was looking for a reasonable priced place to eat with my parents that had a good selection of food that wasn't too "out there".
I was suprised how easy we got reservations - no problem using Open Table. We were seated right away and our waitress was very helpful and friendly. We tried Jerky for an appetizer, it was very tasty. We each got a variation of the make it yourself tacos. Veggies, Chicken and pulled pork - We were all happy with our choices but still a little hungry after. I would recommend definitely getting an appetizer or splitting something else if you all get tacos. Great atmosphere, fun people, awesome location.
Also they surprised us with carrot cake which they are famous for since we were new! THanks!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for a birthday dinner ..Had an excellent time.

It is definitely a place for the young professionals to hang out. My guest and I were seated immediately and drink orders were taken. The menu had many different selections. For an appetizer, we chose the bacon, jerky and cheese plate. YUMMY! Both of us had dinner sandwiches which also featured wonderful hub fries. Servings were big enough that we left with enough for lunch the next day.
All in all the dining experience was top notch. The only negative is that it is hard to hold a conversation due to the noise level.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome celebration!Great time celebrating partner's new job!

My boyfriend and I split an order of the fish tacos and instead of bringing them out on one plate with an empty plate, they split them for us in the kitchen and brought them out on separate plates--the tacos as well as the beans and rice and toppings--that little extra really impressed us. The food was absolutely delciious and so was the wine. The only thing we did not like was how packed in the tables were. We were at a table in the middle of the room surrounded by large parties and it was difficult to leave our table.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, good service.Good food, good service. Way too noisey/loud. Not good that one can barely hear one's dinner companion.

Frosting tastes like a mixture of butter cream and cheese cake.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHub 51 has consistently deliciousHub 51 has consistently delicious food and wonderful service - particularly for the "younger crowd." It seems that a lot of restaurants in Chicago don't treat our generation with the same respect that older costumers may get, and Hub 51 treats everyone well!
