I've never been disappointed
I've never been disappointed with the food or atmosphere at either lunch or dinner. My friends enjoyed the experience and the wait staff were entertaining and helpful.

Jason our server was spectacular and very helpful, the food was good but having a 6:45 reservation the place was starting to close so I felt a bit rushed...

Good food, bad service when we went
I know Wishbone is known more for its brunch than for its dinner, but the dinner was delicious! The hushpuppies alone are worth coming back for. And the grits!
But the service was very off at dinner. Perhaps those are the less experienced servers? Perhaps the less coveted shift? We had to ask for our server after waiting to even get acknowledged at our table. Once we got our drinks (many of the beers listed weren't available, so that made the ordering process a bit of a mess), it was easier to go to the (empty) bar for refills.
I'm not sure if it was an understaffed night or if dinner is just not the time to go. I was excited to go to go at night because it was in the perfect location for our large group and they use openta

Vegan and Gluten-Free friendly!
Love love love this neighborhood favorite. My husband, two kids and I dine here at least once a month. Everything I have tasted is delicious and their menu is very gluten-free and vegan friendly - from buckwheat pancakes for brunch and millet harvest cakes for lunch or dinner. The sauteed spinach is AMAZING!
The decor is fun and laid-back, casual and fun. We always enjoy our experience here!

I've been going to Wishbone for years, having first visited their original location on Wood Street around 1992. Yummy stuff and consistent quality. I had the crab cakes and they could have been crispier, they were actually cool in the middle. My date had chicken fried steak and it could have been crispier. I chalk this up to a very busy night and probably a swamped kitchen. Our wait person Andrea hustled all over the restaurant, but her service was just fine for us. This has always been a go to place for me. The noise level makes it suitable for kids, and there is always something for them to eat on the expansive menu.

Wishbone is not a white linen
Wishbone is not a white linen table service restaurant; more like TGIF Fridays.
Food was good. Disappointed that because they apparently have only one fryer (and it was busy with the catfish special) that the famous fried chicken was not available. Tab was very reasonsable.

Veg Friendly Gem in the West Loop
LOVE Wishbone. My family (husband, 4.5 year old and 20 month old) visit Wishbone regularly. We have been for both breakfast/brunch and dinner. They have LOTS of vegan/vegetarian AND gluten-free offerings. The restaurant has a fun, relaxed vibe and servers are laid back and fun. If you're vegan try the black bean cakes or harvest cakes. Satueed spinach is AMAZING! My 20 month old steals it off my plate - it is THAT good. And the home fries - who doesn't love home fries? Wishbones are made with sauteed onions - heaven!
