Stayed in the Virgin hotel and ate here for breakfast. Had the American breakfast, simple, but very good. Will come back here next winter if they offer the elf dinner! Missed it in 2018.

お料理は美味しかったです。ただ、お値段ほどではなかったです。
お店はすごく広いので、大人数で行くには便利かもしれません。

Miss Ricky's offers a diner-like menu but with flavors for today's palate. The space is intimate and comfortable and it has become my favorite lunch spot.

This is our go to spot for Christmas morning breakfast and it never fails to be great. They offer some unique breakfast items, but you can also just get standard breakfast items. The staff is always friendly despite having to get up and work on Christmas morning. We are very grateful that they are open on Christmas, as while visiting Chicago every Christmas we are pleased to find a gem like this open.

We came for the Elf Spaghetti, and loved everything that Miss Ricky’s had to offer! The staff was incredibly hospitable and we enjoyed everything we had from the menu! The Power Protein bowl was a delicious balance to the sugar bomb of the Elf Spaghetti! We had to indulge, though.... We would definitely visit again!

Worked well for an impromptu business lunch. Wasn’t that busy and service was good, but I felt like it could have been better (more attentive) due to limited customers in the restaurant. My dish was the eggs benedict bowl which was fantastic! Would definitely go back.

There is no kids menu, which would have been ok except the servers had zero interest in making our family comfortable or adjusting to our needs. Small things like enough forks and straws for everyone seemed like a bother to our servers. The food tasted good, but wouldn’t go back.

Great spot. Went there with my coworkers yesterday. Our server was very attentive and nice, I believe his name was Andy. And the food was great! I recommend the crispy chicken sandwich, awesome. Very comfortable seating and atmosphere. Sort of a modern, hipster diner. Will go back again!

The diner was cold. The waiter indifferent...our food sat under lights for 10 minutes and arrived cold; waiter had walked by our table several times and did not pick up the food (I could see the orders, but didn't know if they were ours). They did remake the orders and a different server brought them. Bench seat was too low for the table height. Food was ok, nothing special. A disappointment overall.

Ordered the Cobb salad for $20 (with chicken). Not much flavor and serving size very small. My guest had the double burger. It was ok for a fast food type option but expected higher quality meat at these prices. I assume grade of meat not best because they don’t ask how you would like it cooked - just cooked it well done. The positive was the service. We were seated by a very pleasant hostess and had a very nice waiter. Food was only negative.

Very hip spot for breakfast attached to Virgin Hotel
Absolutely loved the vibe and decor! Funky, colorful and comfy! Excellent service! Food was delicious... I had avo toast w egg and my husband had protein bowl w steak. Only complaint is that the espresso machine was not available.
We sat inside and they have tv monitors w retro movies playing.
Outside tables were available as well including a table w swings for seats! Will definitely return!

I have been to Miss Ricky's several times but my last visit left a lot to be desired. Our server was extremely inattentive and we had to ask multiple times for coffee refills and more water. Additionally, we seemed to have a different person help us on the few occasions someone came by the table. We also had to ask for the check twice.

I will come back to Miss Ricky's because I haven't had a problem before this, but it was disappointing to bring someone who'd never been before and have this be the experience.
