A word from HUB 51
HUB 51 is the River North creation from R.J. and Jerrod Melman, the younger generation of the Lettuce Entertain You organization. HUB 51 is a convergence of entertainment, nightlife, dining and social activity-much like the offbeat creations of LEYE were years ago. Striving to be at the heart of Chicago's social and dining scene, the attitude at HUB 51 is to expect the unexpected, a place offering unconventional perks, and outstanding food, drink and service in a spacious urban setting.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Had to wait for table, despite having a reservation. The empty tables were not filled quickly. The music was exceptionally loud, which made table conversation nearly impossible."

  • "We're a little older and took our twenty something daughter and boyfriend there for dinner. The food was great and the ambiance on a Saturday night was happening. the dining room was full yet the atmosphere was good and did not feel overcrowded. Service was pretty good and the staff was friendly."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We shared 4 dishes and it completely exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend the Ahi Tuna Poke... so good. Our server Audrey was fantastic, she was friendly and informative. We were very pleasantly surprised at how good the prices are on everything, very reasonable especially for a downtown restaurant. Also the carrot cake is really really good, we highly recommend it."

  • "I've always loved the food at Hub51, and my birthday dinner continued the streak. We had the classic chicken nachos which were perfect for our group of 8, and I had sushi that was fresh and flavorful. The only thing missing from our dining experience was attentive and kind service. Two of my party ordered salads, one without bacon due to my friend being a vegetarian, and both were served incorrectly. One had bacon on it, so my friend unknowingly ate meat until she noticed the tiny flecks after a few bites. When we reviewed the bill we noticed he had charged us for an extra salad instead of comping my friend for her non-vegetarian salad, and the server was non-apologetic and a bit rude. He then stopped checking in on our table."

  • "The food was great. The sweet potato sushi, was lacking in presentation, but tasted wonderful! Our entrees were both delicious. My only issue is with time. We were seated before several guests around us were and received both our appetizer and entrees after them, even though we ordered before them. We were seated thirty minutes before recieving any food, even though we ordered 5 minutes after sitting. I would say don't come to the restaurant super hungry, because you might be waiting awhile before any food is brought to you. We went early by 5:30pm and the crowd was light, but by the time we left several large parties, twenty or more, were seated right next to us, raising the noise level quite a bit."

  • "I've been here many times for dinner but had yet to try brunch. Took my mother out this past Sunday. Great menu and the food was excellent, mom got the spinach and cheddar omelette (decent sized portion) and I got the French toast with a side of corned beef hash. We both got the mimosas as well. Can't wait to go back for brunch. Eric was also excellent, so friendly and attentive."

  • "Went here on a Friday afternoon and good thing we had reservations, it was packed. Luckily we got a table outside because the noise level in the restaurant was very loud. The portions are large and could easily be split. We ordered the pulled chicken nachos and 4 of us could have had it as an appetizer. Our waiter was attentive and suggested a champagne that was excellent. Will be back!"

  • "The atmosphere is amazing here! Takes me away everytime. Amazing variety of food and everything is amazing! The sushi rolls are my go-to when I can't decide because hey are out of this world. The fish literally melts in your mouth its so tender and fresh! If you like sushi you have to try the shaki shaki tuna appetizer!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Everything we ordered was excellent. I wanted to try everything on the menu! Hub 51 had a really great atmosphere. I will definitely be going back on my next trip to Chicago. The pulled chicken nacho appetizer is a must try. They're awesome and can definitely feed at least four."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Lots of unique menu items and new takes on the usual, like filet mignon tacos. Such a creative menu is not usually found at restuarants in this moderate price range. My Del Mar Seafood Salad had tons of shrimp, crab, and real vegetables. Service was friendly and efficient. Because it was our first time there we got a full piece of the excellent carrot cake to share."

  • "Went there for dinner. Disappointed in actual dinner entrée options, seemed limited. Menu broken down in sections, sushi, mexican, entree, burgers etc. There were for us, two ordered fish tacos and they really liked them. Two of us split Salmon dish and chicken enchilada stack because we couldn't make up our minds. The salmon was prepared very basic, roasted with a bit of salt and pepper. Served with only a side of grilled asparagus. It was very good. The enchilada stack came with plain white rice, black beans, and chopped tomato. This too was very good, especially liked the black beans. We were all happy with our food, just wasn't what I was expecting. Next time I will study menu a little better before going to a new place."

  • "There were six of us in all. We had spent all day visiting museums and were exhausted. We were hoping for some decent food before crashing back at our B&B. What a marvelous and pleasant experience. The menu was highly varied and well laid out. The service was wonderful. The food was deeeeee-licious. We each had something different and every one was extremely pleased. With our reservation they gave us a nice round table and we had a marvelous time. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone."

  • "We ate here last summer while visiting the city and when we came back this summer, we again chose this restaurant to eat. We made that choice because our experience was so good. Delicious food, good service, fair prices. Very much like this restaurant. This time we ate a meal, went to a show, and came back by to pick up dessert to go after the show. The desserts were delicious! Wonderful carrot cake and a freshly baked brownie were both delicious!"

  • "I have patronized Hub 51 for a number of years, generally for lunch and and an after work drink. The food is consistently wonderful and the service is always superior. The only downside is the noise level at lunch time. I always try to go early as it gets very difficult to carry on a conversation as the tables fill up. However, the quality of the service and the food trump the inconvenience of the noise."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "With being new to the area, and having a severe gluten allergy, HUB 51 checked off all the boxes for amazing! The staff was very knowledgeable about having a Celiac patron and the food could not have tatted better! We will definitely be back, and have recommended it to others!"

  • "I brought my date to Hub 51 for his birthday and it was wonderful! I noted this in the reservation and the waitress brought our dessert to the table with a candle and the restaurant paid for our dessert! It was a very beautiful experience and the food was delicious! I will be back again very soon."

  • "Been there a few times. Always enjoyed. This time felt it was getting old school. Steak tacos were still good...and jerky jerky always a hit."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Great menu variety and food presentation. Our party of six was satisfied with our choices. Server was efficient but not terribly knowledgeable on the menu. If you're looking for a quiet dinner and/or table conversation, you may want to find another dining option as the noise level is off the charts--particularly on the weekend for dinner. Table was waiting for us when we arrived--right on time!"

  • "I have been to Hub 51 once before and the experience stuck with me, so for a special event I recommended that we go there and once again had a great time, food was good and overall great time."

  • "HUB is one of our "go-to" places to make the whole family happy. The food is always delicious, and the service is consistently friendly, knowledgable and accodating. Had a great lunch with my sister and niece last week. Weather was great so the outside was crowded. Chips and not-too-garlicy guac arrived soon after ordering and gave us time to negotiate the large menu. Our issue is always "what to order?" since there are so many things we like. After deep negotiations, a decadent grilled cheese was shared and offset with more healthy fish tacos, a tuna poke and the brussel sprout salad which is always on our receipt."

  • "The food and ambience were great. The service was fantastic. The sushi was not to die for at all. With that said, the other dishes we enjoyed were certainly devlicious."
