The homemade fries left something to be desired, they were neither hot nor crunchy.
food is very good as is service...nostalgic classic lettuce entertainment classic. moderate prices, good sandwiches, generally always get the salad bar and leave stuffed. Sandwishes and onion soup are also very good....
Had great service. Good food. We will be back.
After all these years. Grunt's is still worth the trip. As a former Chicagoan. I needed to return for yet another great meal.
The Wednesday Fried Chicken special is excellent. I would highly recommend the meal.
This place has been around for years and is consistently great. Salad bar is off the charts
My mushroom burger was half the size of the bun and had maybe 4 small mushrooms on it. And it was $14!! Fires were rubbery and cold. And we paid extra for them! Salad bar was good.
Brought some out of town family here and they loved it. We were seated on time for our Friday night reservation and all the food was great, service quick, and kids loved the vibe as much as the adults.
A local gem because the restaurant maintains the same happy vibe as it did in the 70’s. The service is always friendly and attentive; and the food is always fresh.
We always love going to RJ Grunts. It brings back many memories we’ve been going there since it opened
Bad. No birthday celebrations at all. They forgot
We love Grunts.
Consistently good food - good price point - great music - everyone having fun!
Yesterday's brunch was great -- pecan french toast thingy-- yummy!
And even the egg white scramble (often a kinda bland, wimpy choice)
was particularly good.
Grunt's has the best servers! And we appreciate that we are able to ask for,
and most often get, our favorite booth.
Always enjoy RJG! Have been a customer since 1971. Has maintained quality food, service, presentation through the years! Thank You! Calvin Bridges
Server was great, food was great and not a long wait!
Always good. Salad bar slightly expensive but very good with lots of choices. Service outstanding. Fun atmosphere!
We love the ambiance of this place. The service was great. We enjoyed the burgers that were cooked to perfection. The music was all the retro classics. We look forward to returning with friends this summer.
A fun place to eat. Great for a zoo trip and lunch.
We have gone to Grunt's at least 5 times since moving to the neighborhood 9 months ago. Good value and lots of energy. Very tasty burgers, just okay fries. Always at least two soups with the salad bar. Staff hustles the entire time, as one would expect with a Lettuce restaurant (the original!) A Chicago icon
Great, busy place--make sure to make reservations. Food was very good, with generous portions. They have a humble gluten free menu, also lacking the less expensive kids' options. Our server seemed rushed, making me feel hurried while I was asking food related questions.
Overall a good experience.
Have frequented this place for decades and it's still serving great food w/a family-friendly and lively atmosphere. Space is pretty tight but that's a signature trait. A little less value (considering food quality/quantity/price) than previous years but still a solid when in the area. Definitely recommend a reservation because it's typically busy at peak dining hours--like REALLY busy.
Love that RJ is still here. First visited in the 70s and is a family favorite. My dad is 83 and he still picks it to get the family together. Server was calm and friendly and too care of all 10 of us perfectly. Been in the restaurant biz for decades and love fun food and great service. Thanks for another good occasion!
Never disappoints...great vibe and great music. Waitress was attentive. Food was excellent and great portions. Great salad bar too.
It was great to see R J Grunts was as much fun now as it was 40 years ago when I used to visit regularly. Great food, warm atmosphere. Still fun to go there.
Went to celebrate my Mother-In-Law’s birthday. My wife grew up in Lincoln Park going to RJ Grunts with her family so it was like coming home. Good food and pleasant service!
Always a favorite! Never disappoints.
Dori was amazing !!
GET THE BUFFALO CHICKEN NACHOS!!! Great food, great service, would definitely go back!
As always, AWESOME food and service! RJ Grunts is our go-to!
Classic Lincoln Park restaurant. Great food, great views of the Lincoln Park Zoo and the park. The food gets delivered fast and they have a great drinks menu. We come here at least once a month.
Still the best salad bar. Daily specials are a good idea. Laura had the barbecue chicken.
It was our anniversary
Busy time we went seating was nice Accross the bar. Milkshake just right. Yummy hamburger s
This place was cozy and quaint. I loved the food, ambience, and the service was great too! I will be returning.
I like RJ Grunt but a little noisy and cramp. Valet Parking is very expensive $12 and if you include tip that comes out to $15 .. That is 25% of the meal so too expensive for me .. The food is OK ..
The flavor of their burgers are delicious and remind me of summer time grilling. The onion rings are yummy. Lots of food - expect leftovers.
Fun family night out!
Issue with line to be seated. More staff is needed.
We had a great time at RJ Grunts. We each got a burger that was great, the service was top notch and the venue was great. Love the music they play too!
I come for the music and stay for the food. The best neighborhood place for a great burger. Very relaxed atmosphere. Just don’t get seated near a table with little kids or your meal will consist of screaming children and yelling parents.
