Started out doing brunch earlier
Started out doing brunch earlier on Sunday and I understand it was busy but our server was not very attentive. We were there for about 4 hours and our waters weren't even refilled once. We later on moved to the other side of the bar and everything changed completely. Our server Rico was amazing...so friendly and attentive...he was very communicative with us with every last detail...the other staff was a delight as well...Brian at the door was also very friendly and entertaining always with a smile on his face...I will ask for Rico anytime I go back

This is a great place for
This is a great place for friends, out of town guests, and whomever you want to feel like partying with on a Sunday at noon. The food was better than expected, even three types of salads! And the service was excellent, friendly and fun. Great mimosas. Highly recommended.

Came from out of town to see
Came from out of town to see Blue Man Group and found minibar for preshow brunch. TJ and Jarred were excellent. Super friendly and outgoing, they made us feel welcome and like old friends from when we walked in the door until we left. Food was limited but excellent. I will be craving the bacon until I someday pass this way again.

I've come here a couple times
I've come here a couple times for their brunch ($20 buffet and bottomless mimosas). They're very accommodating of large groups, and they were able to seat people with us that were past our reservation limit. The waiters were very friendly and attentive. I wouldn't come here on a night out but definitely the morning/afternoon after definitely!

Excellent choice for brunch!
Minibar was a great find! Had brunch with a small group of friends while visiting Chi-town. Service was excellent and mimosas were perfection! We will definitely be returning on our next visit to Chicago.

Late Night Food & Fun Dancing
We had tapas late night after a show at Sinzation, and the staff was very accommodating. Shout out to Zachary, most adorable and genuinely sweet person and waiter ever! Only negative - music so loud my ears are still bleeding today.

In town to celebrate a friends bday
My group had an amazing time at Minib Bar. The staff was energetic and friendly. Had to change reservation from 4 to 6 a week prior and we were accommodated with no problem. Great experience.

Great casual drop in spot
Service is so friendly and helpful. Portions are excellent and a great value relative to price. A very good variety of choices hot and cold, big and small. Cocktails a bit overpriced but well made. Super pillow-like gnocchi, great salmon plate, excellent Wagyu sliders. Only the shrimp ceviche disappointed in its lack of flavor and texture. Great go-to spot for a minute or an hour. But beware if you want quiet conversation--music is played at full blast even in the afternoon!

Make New Friends
This place always offers a great team who take care of you from the moment you walk in the door. Come with a large group or small group and you are going to have a good time. The food is buffet style for brunch with a variety of options to choose from. Make reservations because they do book-up fast. This location has been named #1 brunch location in Chicago for a reason.

Great time! Waiters were fun
Great time! Waiters were fun and took care of us, music was good as well. Food was decent, pretty standard, but we followed the waiters recommendations for drinks and they were great!

Awesome weekend brunch...always!
I totally love the Sunday brunch experience. The food is delicious, the wait staff are welcoming and attentive and the unlimited mimosas keep the great experience going. I introduced an out of town friend to the brunch and now he's hooked! Every time he comes to town, we know exactly what we are doing Sunday afternoon--without question! Even my in town friends love the ambiance and selection. And for the price, you really can't beat it!

GREAT IMPROMPTU STOP
We were informed about Minibar's brunch at the spur of the moment, so we made a reservation (a quick and simple online process) and had a wonderful brunch. Staff was friendly and attentive. The music was fun and energetic. We will surely be back for more when we return to chicago. Thanks Minibar.

Fun and yummy!
Food was great, big variety for brunch. Mimosas kept flowing. We were seated in the basement, which felt like a dungeon, but was nice to get some stair activity every time we went for another plate of food :)

Mini bar was referred to me by a friend for great food & atmosphere and boy were they right. I had my birthday brunch here & my guests and I were pleasantly surprised. The food, atmosphere, workers, and drinks were great! I will definitely be back!
