Very quiet - empty actually when we walked in. Great service. My friend had the white fish and I had a vegan butternut squash soup and a crab cake - very good.

Hard to believe a cup of coffee was $5 but we are in the Gold Coast

This is Fred’s of Chicago fur sure...not NY. Upon arrival the hostess who was training someone was unwelcoming. Our server was very nice and accommodating. We ordered fries to start. I ordered the chicken. My husband ordered the burger. The waiter kindly returned to ask if he would like vegetables or something else since the burger comes with fries. He substituted broccoli. When the food came out the burger had fries not broccoli. We told him it was okay and not to bother. Halfway through the meal the broccoli arrived. Good attempt but too late. All in all the food was delicious. If your going for anything other than that it’s blah. I’ve eaten at the original Barney’s of NY. This was mediocre compared to that.

Great food and great service. Loved the ambiance and the location. Can't wait to sit on their patio in the warmer months.

Overall great atmosphere and delicious food. The only negative is that we ordered the bottle of wine and it was out of stock and we were asked to choose something different, we ended up ordering by the glass.

Great Margarita pizza if you order “underdone”!
Enjoy the iced tea and the club sandwich too.

I normally enjoy dining here, but this time foods were really poorly prepared.
The salad were so dry, hardly any dressing and crab meat cake and fries were so over cooked and burnt.
We were seated right next to kitchen so it was very noisy for us to have our conversation.
Our server was nice as always.
