Hubbard Inn Ratings and Reviews
The food was very good! My entrees: the seared scallops, salmon ... along with my salad with anchovies was delicious.
The service particularly the server/waiter was extremely lackluster almost as if in hurry the leave or disinterested in working.
The noise level was unbearable. I couldn't hear my guest DIRECTLY next to me.
Nice restaurant in River North with a cool decor and vibe inside. If you're going for dinner, know that at some point in the night, around 8pm or so the music will get very loud, so you may need to yell across the table to have a conversation. Definitely worth checking out, especially for happy hour.
It wasn't my first time but it had been awhile. I thought the food was terrific! The flat bread was good but didn't wow me. However the taco Tina tartar was to die for. Also ordered the salmon and the scallops and both were better than expected. I had a Gilt city voucher for $80 and two apps and two entrees was basically covered by voucher. I just had to pay $27 extra for tip basically.
Arrived at 6:50
No information about event posted or shared. At 7 we went to get info from young lady. She ignored us and attempted to take care of another party that had just walked in. We asked for details, apparently there is a secret that wasn’t shared. We should’ve made a reservation along with printing out our ticket to the event. Because we were given a drink ticket with no additional info and no where to sit. So we were told to stand around bar and mingle.
Made reservation on opentable. For 7:30. But they were “overbooked” so we had to wait until 7:45 to be seated after standing around and mingling since 6:50.
So we eat and drink and be merry. And at 9:15 another “manager” comes by and assumes that we just sat ourselves and proceeds to tell us that the table we are at was reserved. So we say yes we had a reservation and the manager sat us here. So he says he’s the manager and this table was reserved so he’s gonna see what’s going on.
We asked young lady for updates and help with seating and she was unhelpful and dismissive. She stated that we would be seated in 10 minutes at one point and 20 minutes later we were still unseated and not even kept abreast of the situation. Finally she found a manager who squeezed us at a table sandwiched between the bar and a pole.
For an event that has been going on for a long time, why is it so disorganized. Why not have a face friendly face upfront that answers questions.
I’ve never felt so ignored or dismissed. I felt invisible. Luckily I had on flats. Because standing in front of the door while they brought pianos by and seated countless other people as soon as they walked in was very tiring and would’ve taken a toll on my feet.
I would say how the drinks were or the food was but I like to be honest. And because I’m already so disillusioned with my treatment/experience here, I can’t give an unbiased opinion of either.
I will NEVER come here again. I would NEVER recommend this place.
We were visiting the Chicago area from out of town for New Year’s Eve. We picked the Hubbard Inn to have brunch the next day and to catch up before everyone left town. I had perused the menu online ahead of time and found some good choices. When we arrived we were told that there was actually a “free buffet“ for New Year’s Day and & no regular menu & all we had to do was buy drinks. We were excited by the prospect of “free food“to celebrate the new year. The hostess had mentioned that some people were upset because they weren’t able to order off the menu. We thought that it was a nice surprise! Our server was awesome and attentive as was the rest of the staff. If I ever make it back to Chicago I would definitely visit Hubbard Inn!
My husband and I were visiting the city for Christmas. We went later on a Wednesday night, it was a little loud, but just because it was Ladies Night. Tessa was our server and she was fantastic! The bacon wrapped dates as an appetizer were DELICIOUS and a must have! We will definitely go back next time we’re in the city!!!
The wild rice soup and the cheese flatbread were good. We ordered the monkey bread but had to send it back because the middle was uncooked. The management was quick and efficient in dealing with the problem and comped our flatbread without us even asking. Very good customer service!
Really enjoyed Hubbard Inn, except for the noise level. It was very loud, almost too loud.
Felt you had to speak loudly to be heard in our booth.
Very interesting interior of building. Would have liked to see the upstairs, but there was a party going on.
Our servers were great, very attentive.
Will come back again.
Also, the live music was great, nice artist. Can’t remember their name.
I was hoping for a unique place to take my Mom to that neither of us had been. Online the Hubbard Inn looked very unique with amazing decor and a menu with variety. When we walked in it was more of a bar that was extremely noisy and when asked if we could change our table that hey had given us we were told no. It’s a shame because instead of eating a full meal as planned all we got was a drink and an appetizer. If your looking for a very laid back place to go grab drinks after work i would recommend for that but not for a date or nice dinner.
I went for an early lunch with my mother and I was very impressed. I've been to Hubbard inn before for drinks and dancing but I had no idea they had an amazing lunch menu. We both got bison burgers (one with sweet potato fries and the other with fries Brussels sprouts) and the bacon wrapped dates. The bacon wrapped dates are incredible! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! The bison meat was very good as well. It was a thick patty which I prefer and the meat was very savory and smokey! Very good food! Will be back soon!
I came here for brunch while my family was in town. We all had the build your own omelette which was delicious. They let you pick as many ingredients as you want for the same fixed price - very reasonable. The venue was a fun atmosphere, decorated for Halloween since we went around that time. Would definitely recommend!
Hubbard Inn was okay. I wouldn't say it is a destination restaurant, it seems more like a neighborhood place.
When our party arrived we asked for a booth since the restaurant was more than 1/2 empty. Unfortunately we were told they were only for larger parties. The food was ok -- the standout of the meal was the crispy brussel sprouts. The bison burger was a bit of a disappointment as were the black kale crisps.
Completely dead at lunch hour. Server didn’t read the table well. We were taking and catching up and told her several times that we would let her know when we were ready. Attentiveness is one thing...annoying your guests is another. Food took forever. After asking for an update she told us that one of the items ordered was not available, so it was like starting over. Food mediocre. Had a similar experience on another occasion - this was the “let’s give it another shot” attempt. Won’t return.
Went for happy hour. While the happy hour raw bar was a good deal, there was really no cocktail special. Also, our waiter was somewhat rude and aggressive and just generally absent from our table even though the restaurant was empty. Also, everyone raved about the lobster bisque and it really just wasn’t good! While you get a lot, it has a weird spice to it and just wasn’t worth getting. Wasn’t a terrible experience but definitely won’t be returning.
