Slow service in the bar. Not sure why they are open for lunch on a Monday. Felt awkward with no one there. Food and service just ok.
This was our second trip to the Q. Loved the food, atmosphere, everything. Can’t wait to come back!
Brunch was amazing, and the service was fantastic!
We were vacationing on the Gold Coast and had trouble finding a reasonably priced restaurant on the neighborhood. Chicago Q is a gem! I’m a pescatarian and really enjoyed the salmon.
For it being a slow sunday night, our service kind of lacked. Our server was not very informative or personable. (Which is ok but you would think with it being slow, you would take the time to explain items) food was great like always, yummy wines and clean restaurant. You were surprisingly out of the better bourbons which was a bummer. We’ll be back but come on Q... :-)
Everything was very good except the noise level was off the charts. We didn’t stay for desert because we couldn’t hear our conversation.
Really loud. Couldn’t have a conversation. Ended up sick from the pork platter. Won’t go back.
The food was excellent. We went for brunch, and we loved everything! We ordered so many different entrees to share and they were wonderful!
Food was delicious. Service as great. Will be back.
This place was awesome! I got a reservation for 2 for Friday night at 8:30 (although that was unnecessary because it wasn't full). We each had a cocktail (an Old-fashioned and a Paloma)- both were good, but not great. The food was outstanding! We had the hush puppies to start, then the pulled chicken, half slab of ribs, and the stuffed poblano pepper - all were great! We will definitely be stopping back here on our next Chicago trip!
Service was on the slow side, but the food was really good.
Great service and atmosphere. I'm a vegetarian, so I looked at this date night as a sacrifice for my meat-eating husband. After trying the food I would happily go back. I had the stuffed poblano pepper, which was SO delicious, though maybe a bit too salty. I'd get it again or try the good-looking kale salad the neighboring table had. My husband loved the meat and sauces--he had the prime brisket sandwich. Good date spot!
Great atmosphere, beautiful scenery and if you like BBQ and a more upscale experience this is the place for you!
Food was wonderful, meatball appetizer and Mac and cheese side were amazing!
Absolutely loved the homemade pickles and chips right when we sat down at the table. The hush puppies were as amazing as advertised. BBQ was good and the vibe was cool and homey.
Come for the baby back ribs over and over again! Wonderful spot, and had a lovely birthday dinner with family.
Seated 30 minutes after reservation at a table that was covered in crumbs.... the table was wobbly, a huge spider crawled up my back (seriously), and awful service (the server did not check on us for thirty minutes as she helped one table the entire time). Beyond awful. Will definitely never come back.
Delicious food and even good leftover! Definitely will be back!
Incredible food, great service and great vibes. Would go back any day.
A nice find. Real BBQ joint in Chicago, big portions, good and quick service. Enormous cake - saw it at the next table, didn't have it in us to order it.
We had a great experience and were well taken care of by our waitress and hostess staff. Food was cooked well and came out in a timely manner. The atmosphere can be a little noisy at times due to the small space, but overall a great experience!
Took wife out for lunch. Definitely not your typical Barbecue spot. Service great. Food not bad. 8 out of 10.
Good food and friendly service in a nice setting
Art Smith's Buttermilk Chicken with mashed potatoes is incredibly delicious!
Staff was pleaseant and cheerful. Food was great and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
Great food and great service! Look forward to my next visit.
Our server was so well versed and kind- I couldn’t have asked for anything more. She was attentive but not obtrusive, and honestly gave opinions and suggestions which I truly appreciate. The food was timely, hot, and delicious.
The food was great and the service was even better. We had a bit of a wait for a drink refill and the manager gave us a free appetizer without us even making a complaint.
Everyone was friendly and attentive. The food was amazing and the portions were filling.
The food was very good,nice portions and I wish I had our waiters name he was extremely nice.
We arrived in the last seating and were able to sit in a booth. Our server Mario was fantastic. He was patient and answered all of our questions. There were 6 ladies and most had questions as it was their first time and he took time to answer them all.
The food in the other hand was fantastic, the portions were generous no small plates here. It was a great experience.
Came here for 1st night of restaurant week with a 9 person group. Restaurant week menu was exceptional, and the food delivered as always. That said, think it took a toll on the staff as it took my friend 45 minutes to get a glass of wine. Price was unbelievably low for the group size so definitely a great value.
Amazing service and food. I was never a big fan of BBQ, but this restaurant totally changed the game. Our waiter was so attentive and responsive and knew his stuff. Will be coming back for sure!
The food was perfect. Well seasoned and cooked. The waiter was cool and friendly. I going back again soon.
This is a perfect place for any occasion! The food is always delicious and the staff is great. They do offer vegetarian meals too.
I recommend going for brunch! The benedict flight is where it's at.
Happy eating =)
Great experience. Service was top notch
Best baby back ribs in Chicago. Really good service too. Unfortunately their chairs are unusually low, and uncomfortable for anyone that is over 6' tall. I've honestly never sat in restaurant chairs that were so low. Be sure you get seated in a booth!
This was my second time at Chicago q. The first time I went about 2 years ago it was great. This time, my reservation was forgotten for 45 minutes. When we arrived we notified the hosts and they said it would still be a few minutes for our table so we sat at the bar and had a drink while we waited. After about half an hour we went to see why we were still waiting and they said they forgot we were there. Once seated our server forgot to bring a glass of wine I had ordered when reminded twice and then forgot to bring one of the sides we ordered. We were still charged for the side even after notifying him that it never came and had to ask for it to be removed from the bill. The food was still great but I wouldn't go back again due to poor service. Hopefully just an off night.
Major bill issues. Took 45 minutes to sort out the check. Oddly weird portions of meat. We get it’s BBQ but be clear about portion sizes
I don’t know how a place gets any better than the Q. The competition ribs are unmatched- so meaty and delicious. The brisket meatballs? Out of this world. And the service is spectacular. Can get a little loud but you won’t mind after the first bite. Amazing. And the cocktails are superb.
