Diner Reviews
  • "We brought a bunch of family here for their first visit to Chicago. The service was good and the menu was fantastic- interesting enough that we were excited to see what our dishes would look like, but not so creative that they scared off our more conservative guests. Also, everything was delicious. We liked the option of sharing plates, too. This is going to become my go-to spot for dinner with out-of-towners."

  • "Used a groupon to try out the Hubbard Inn. Started with a Bloody Mary that was garnished with a three bite shrimp and an olive and lime. Very tasty,not too spicy! Crab Benedict for me and pork belly Benedict for my husband. Both very good, substantial servings, and a great combination of flavors! We visited on a Saturday to avoid the crowd od a Sunday brunch. Nice crowd but not too noisy--sat in the window seat facing the street --so didn't see much of the restaurant."

  • "Visited the Hubbard on an introductory Groupon . Cool décor, great service, and tempting menu items. The lobster omelet was delicious, as were the mixed style of fried potatoes. Definitely have to return for dinner one night."

  • "Outstanding food, highlighted by the dated wrapped in bacon and a tasty gazpacho,ade this a perfect summer evening in the flower-filled outdoor seating area."

  • "Let me start by saying i was taking my college age son out and he can eat. The food was very good, no complaints, but the shareable plates just didn't quite cut it. I thought the menu was limited. This is more a "chick" place to order good, pretty food and just hang out."

  • "A friend originally from here was in town from overseas for a few days and staying in the River North Area. He wanted to go out to dinner with some other friends. I suggested a number of options on Hubbard St. which was an easy walk from his hotel. From the description of the various places, he chose the Hubbard Inn. The service was informed but informal and friendly. I had read online about the raw bar options which we asked about and ordered a few things from. The server did not tell us about them without our asking and we were glad we inquired. We voted the crab legs the best of the three items ordered. While the noise level increased as time passed, we enjoyed sharing plates and picking our favorites."

  • "Overall the food was good and we had above average service for a large group of 8. However it was very expensive and very small portions, and we eat out often and are accustomed to tapas and sharing, so we are not looking for massive quantities of food. I would not return."

  • "The outdoor space was alright and the waitress was attentive. I ordered a salad with grilled shrimp which was an extra $8.00. In reality, there were only 2 shrimp sliced in half to look like 4 shrimp. I was shocked. When the bill came I told the waitress I was disappointed and to their credit, it was taken off the bill. I was never sure if it was a real mistake by the chef or not. My husband's flatbread was so-so. It's checked off our list now and we move on to try other restaurants."

  • "Or server, Emily, was the world's greatest! Our drinks were phenomenal! My Bloody Mary was garnished with a three bite jumbo shrimp. The crab cakes benedict were fantastic. The market steak and eggs were smothered in hollandaise and lumps of lobster. It wad cooked perfectly and delicious. We will definitely be back."

  • "The brunch menu was extensive but we settled on the Steak and egg sandwich. The best choice we could have made....The steak was cooked to medium and I had my egg fried verses the recommended poached option. I believe that either is a great choice. The sandwich was accompanied by 3 different styles of roasted potatoes, purple, yellow and sweet. For our beverage we chose Pineapple mimosas! Everything was perfect. We will definitely make it back to the Hubbard Inn upon our next visit to Chicago."

  • "I took my cousin here while she was visiting from Louisville because I love the ambience. I think it is chic and has a lot of personality. I also heard the food was great. We shared 5 of their small plates, which was exactly the right amount of food. My favorite item was the bacon wrapped dates! I had been to Hubbard Inn for the bar scene, but never a meal. I would definitely go back!"

  • "Hosted a team dinner here recently and it was a great evening. Small plates were all delicious and a great way for a group to share. Cocktails were amazing. Large booths made it easy for our group to talk and share."

  • "The food was great and the raw seafood bar they have on Wed-Friday from 4-7 is a can't miss. However, I was disappointed with the noise level. It was very difficult to hear the other person I was dining with. That being said other than that the food was reasonably priced. We didn't drink much so can't speak to the drink although I would have liked to see some sort of happy hour drink special."

  • "I love Hubbard Inn and have been there numerous times in the past, but unfortunately my review isn't the best for this past Saturday night. We arrived on time for our 8:15 reservation and were told that the table was running a few minutes behind. We ended up waiting 35 minutes, at about 20 minutes I checked in with the hostess who was rude and told me she knew I was here and that she'd find me at the bar. Really, really rude girl when in the past the host team has been great. They finally sat us and once we sat down everything was great. Our server Linda was sweet and the scallops and bacon wrapped dates were delicious as usual. Drinks were also good. I was honestly just upset with the long wait time(when we had a res) and the rude hostess."

  • "The noisy, hipster vibe would surely be a plus for some diners, but our group of four were hoping to have a conversation and, at least on the bar floor, it's too loud for that. Waitress was friendly enough but somewhat slow and definitely delinquent with the water refills. Food was good but not good enough to make up for the overly (for our purposes) buzzy atmosphere. We'd try the upper floor (which we didn't see) if we came back, in hopes of a better ambience, but we probably won't return."

  • "This is more of an appetizer and small plates kind of place. The main courses are tasty, but the selection is somewhat limited. I see it as more of a lunch or later evening stop. The ambiance is very nice, inn experience, as the name suggests. Service was very good."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The food was excellent, the staff friendly and on-point, and the decor is marvelous. It was a bit loud at dinner time, and I was entertaining clients so that wasn't great, but overall I thought it was a success."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "The place had a very casual, energetic feel to it. The restaurant's shared/communal dining concept will attract some people but will not entice couples looking for a private/romantic evening. The menu was simple but the food was very well prepared and reasonably priced. The portions were substantial despite being labeled as 'small plates'. We definitely will be coming back here."

  • "Food, cocktails -- all delicious! Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. On a Saturday evening the place was buzzing with River North energy. Very fun experience overall."

  • "I recently went to Hubbard Inn for a dinner experience with a bachelorette party and then followed it up with brunch the next day. Both were excellent and the service was on par. I highly recommend the bacon wrapped dates and eggs benedict. The drinks were also very good and recommend the Moscow Mule."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "I love Hubbard Inn. The food is excellent with lots of smaller plates to share amongst a group. The flat bread pizzas, the lamb meatballs, bacon wrapped dates and scallops were all delicious. They have great larger plates to but we usually end up cutting them up and splitting them like the lobster rolll and the lamb burger. We go there a lot for work because they can handle larger tables but this weekend we had a birthday dinner there and it was just great. We were seated upstairs on the second floor which at first I was wary of but they had the windows open and it was a beautiful night in Chicago and it was like eating outside but away from all the street noise. Food and service were both excellent. I will be back."

  • "This is the second time I've been to Hubbard Inn, but the first time I've eaten there. Our group ordered a bunch of little plates which were appetizing. I highly recommend Hubbard Inn if you're looking for dining with a lounge feel."

  • "I had a nice dinner on Monday night at the Hubbard Inn with an old friend. The setting was perfect; comfortable, warmly lit, with a good energy. We sat near the bar which I liked because it provided a little more festive atmosphere but for a dinner I sometimes find high tops difficult to get comfortable. We ordered a charcuterie board to start and selected 4 items from the small plates menu. It was the perfect amount for the 2 of us. The bacon wrapped dates were very good as well as the scallops. I would recommend it for any occasion - not overcrowded but busy enough. Good service as well."

  • "This visit was quite disappointing. We had ordered our food and about 20 mins later, the waitress, Leah, came by and told us that she had forgotten to put our food order in and had also forgotten what we had ordered. We were OK with the wait, but we also thought that the food would be made on the fly, since she had forgotten. That did not happen. It was evident that she did not communicate her oversight of our late order to the kitchen or the manager. The manger did not stop by to see how anything was or even apologize about the extreme delay with the food. Additionally, our server Leah, did not offer any refills on mimosas or sodas. Additionally, we were charged the full amount for all of our food despite the poor service."

  • "I've come to think of Hubbard Inn as a go to spot in River North to meet up with friends for drinks. Their food is spot on and I love their cocktails, especially the Moscow Mule. Just beware their prices are a little high for what you get and I've found the service somewhat lacking."

  • "Spent a date night @ the Hubbard Inn for dinner and enjoyed the variety and ambiance...the small plates are fantastic for a group and were very well prepared, both content and presentation. We will be back the next time in Chicago!!"

  • "We were scheduled through OpenTable for a reservation at 8:45. Upon arrival, we were told OpenTable should not have allowed a reservation at this time, and that there were six groups ahead of us. The host asked us to wait, but never fulfilled our reservation. We were forced to fend for ourselves and secure a table on our own."

  • "Headed here with a group of girls from work. Management was extremely accommodating with our changing group size and service was fantastic when figuring out our bills. Drinks and food came out quickly and Hubbard Inn proved to be a great spot for happy hour on a Friday night during prime hours."

  • "Went here with a group of 5 and ordered a variety of menu items including: Tuna, bacon wrapped dates, shrimp, chicken, salad, flatbread and everything was delicious and enough food to feed us all. They have tons of cocktails to choose from and the ambience was upbeat. If you want somewhere to do a late dinner and stay for the bar scene afterwards, this is the place to be. We left around 11 and it was packed and there was a line out the door. I would highly recommend!"

  • "Our server was energetic, knowledgeable, and really made our experience a perfect one. The ambiance is unique. The furniture & bar created a great setting. We ate dinner early to avoid a big crowd and had an excellent time. All of our food was excellent. Our server recommended bacon wrapped dates as an appetizer, which we never would have ordered normally, and they were outstanding!"

  • "The food quality has significantly deteriorated at Hubbard Inn. We tried a bunch of small plates - flavorless meatballs, an extremely tough short rib, mediocre scallops and unremarkable ahi tartare . Despite warning the server (and the server warning the kitchen) that one of the guests had a severe nut allergy, the scallops came covered in nuts. I like Hubbard Inn's late night bar scene but this will be my last time eating there."

  • "Had brunch at Hubbard Inn or Saturday. I had a guilt city voucher and I had read it wrong. The waitress was very nice and asked if i could get the flatbread instead of the brunch items. They brought out the flatbread and we had a very nice brunch. Bloody Marys were very good and reasonably priced! (would liked to have them rimed with old bay or something spicy though)"

  • "Arrived on time and we were seated immediately. We were a party of four and wanted a table where it would not be noisy but they did't have one. Knowing this, they said the only table was right next to the bar. This was our biggest mistake since there was a party of six that throughout our our dinner get louder and louder with each round of drinks. Outside of that, the atmosphere was pleasant, definitely for a younger crowd. Food was very good with the exception that our steaks came out luke warm and we didn't want to wait to send them back. Overall I would give it a 3.5 but there are many other places that would beat this."

  • "I went there on a Friday night for girls night. We ordered a bunch of small plates. I really liked the tuna tartare and the braised ribs. The risotto unfortunately was out so we ordered the lamb meatballs which I personally did not like. The service was fine. We then went upstairs to have another drink and the atmosphere was great."
