A word from Wishbone - West Loop
Located one block from Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios and perfectly centered between City Hall and the United Center, Wishbone West Loop was an early participant in the emergence of the neighborhood from a commercial area to one of the city's culinary hot spots. We've been there through it all, quietly serving our own unique brand of Southern Cooking.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My guest and I had a great time at this restaurant. They didn't rush you to eat and let you dine at your leisure. The wait staff was excellent and the food was great. Would recommend to anyone and plan to visit again in the near future."

  • "This was my first time at this location. We are occasional visitors to the Lakeview one (3-4 times a year). The only reason we went here was because were meeting some out-of-town visitors who were staying downtown. We had a 6:30 OpenTable reservation (1st time I have used OpenTable for Wishbone), we were not seated until 6:55 and weren't addressed by a server until 7:20 (we went ahead and ordered everything right then). Things thankfully sped up from there as we were served our food at 7:40. So, we were able to enjoy a pretty good dinner. I don't feel like the OpenTable reservation made much of a difference. However, I have had enough good experiences at Wishbone that I will probably go back (though not sure about the downtown location)."

  • "The food was decent but the service was terrible. We were seated and waited at least five minutes before we were acknowledged. This would be fine had the restaurant been crowded. I asked for water on 3 separate occasions and unfortunately never got my refill. Really? Is there a one glass limit? The server couldn't remember whose entrees was whose (we were a party of 2)."

  • "Wishbone is a great place for comfort food. They have a heart for kids, but don't impose that on guests without children. My guest and I had meatloaf in different varieties. Delicious and about the best cole slaw I have had anywhere. Reasonable prices and pleasant atmosphere. During the summer, very nice outdoor spot."

  • "My phone died and I asked the server if she could find a charge for me and she did. She went asking everyone worked there until she found me one and was watching my phone for me while it was being charged at the counter. Can't also for better service than that."

  • "Southern with a twist...plenty of non fried choices...surprised they didn't have some form of fried cocktail but maybe that's in development. Great taste, casually courteous service, and plenty to look at in the room. We all ate way too much and just kept trying things. Urp."

  • "Great place for a family birthday dinner. Lots of meal options including breakfast for kids to eat unlike other restaurant that say they are kid friendly but offer limited choices. Attentive and polite waiter service. Dinner was pretty good and reasonable in price for a large party of 9 people including kids. would definitely recommend for other people to try out the place for a brunch or dinner."

  • "Although the restaurant was not very busy our service was slow. In addition the waitress had difficulty dividing the check. Wishbone may be ok for breakfast but only fair for dinner."

  • "The service and atmosphere at Wishbone were great. I have no complaints in that department at all. But the food was definitely lacking. The kitchen takes way too many shortcuts on the food, and it's very noticeable. Everything I had was pre-made several hours earlier and wasn't even reheated. The mac n cheese hard rock-hard curdles in it instead of sauce from being microwaved. The hoppin john was a pre-fabricated combination of ingredients that were cooked separately and the cheese on top seemed to be pre-shredded cheese, which they didn't even bother to melt. The burger was a dried up, overcooked hockey puck even though I ordered it medium-rare. At least if you're going to puck my burger, melt the cheese on it."

  • "Great place to grab a quick bite before a show at the United Center. Great Southern meals, I want to go back and try more."

  • "Wow! A real Southern cuisine restaurant! And great prices! Super seafood gumbo and fried green tomatoes! Terrific crawfish and pork chops!! Everything about Wishbone is right. Unassuming, throwback atmosphere, great service, choices to make you come back over and over!!"
