HUB 51 is the River North creation from R.J. and Jerrod Melman, the younger generation of the Lettuce Entertain You organization. HUB 51 is a convergence of entertainment, nightlife, dining and social activity-much like the offbeat creations of LEYE were years ago. Striving to be at the heart of Chicago's social and dining scene, the attitude at HUB 51 is to expect the unexpected, a place offering unconventional perks, and outstanding food, drink and service in a spacious urban setting.

Our waitress was phenomenal, especially with dealing with gluten-free dining. Food and drinks were awesome, per usual. Love this place. Special occasion was my parents visiting from Michigan for the weekend.

We were pressed for time and our waiter made our dining experience pleasant and relaxing. Split a chopped asian salad that was to die for. Dbl veggie patty burger minus the bun was outstanding. So many flavors and just enough kick to eat. Brussell Sprout salad was exceptional. Definitely go back (and I dont do repeats too often).

Every New Year’s Day, we drive from Crown Point, IN, to meet our son and his girlfriend in Chicago for brunch. This year the food was still wonderful, but the service was horrible. Waited 20 minutes for our Bloody Mary glasses, waited for silverware while our food was on our plates, waited for plates to be removed. We have never experienced this before. Even though we were seated quickly, it was down hill after that. I believe the tables were so close, the wait staff could not function well. You could nearly walk through to buffet. We were along very back wall, farthest from buffet. As usual, the food was excellent.

We were there for the NYE brunch and after sitting and drinking for 30 minutes, we were told that you have to do the buffet as the regular menu wasn't available. The buffet was $40 per person and very random and not good. The brunch items were extremely limited and random (scrambled eggs, sushi, cookies). Some of the items had food that had been picked over and we each ate probably ate $10-15 worth of food because it wasn't great. Our servicer was very prompt with drinks, but the food was such a waste and a terrible deal.

We came for a quick meal prior to our New Year’s eve festivities and got lucky with the happy hour sushi, which was great! The fries are good too. We didn’t partake in drinks, but the drink menu was fairly extensive with many options.

The service was excellent. The menu had a nice variety to choose from and all 4 of us found things that we liked.

The food came out quickly for those who are on a tight time table.

The staff was very attentive and friendly. 4/5 people really loved the food. The burger was not well liked because it was charred on the outside and undercooked on the inside even after sending it back to be cooked more.

We weren't sure what to expect dining here on Christmas Eve but were pleasantly surprised by the excellent service, lively ambiance and very tasty food. The apple cider cocktail with a hint of cinnamon was delicious too! To finish our meal, we were served a yummy brownie dessert with ice cream (compliments of the restaurant!) that was large enough for 3 people to share. A very enjoyable experience.

We were very disappointed in the food tonight. The turkey meatloaf used to be grilled with gravy on it and the mashed potatoes. It was very dry, plain, spinach(?), no gravy and cold potatoes. Menu seems to be getting sparser each time we’ve gone including wines by the glass. Salads were just fair.

Well, our appetizer never came. Too bad because the portion sizes were so small: meatloaf- 1 slice, salmon- about a 3”x3” piece and burger- a little bigger than a White Castle slider. The nachos were good and large. Able to be shared as a dinner by 2 and then some. Go for those. And they clean the table as you’re eating. It was if they were running out of plates. So not relaxing! Cost....pretty high for the value.
