Delicious! We were staying at the Hyatt Regency McCormick and wanted to try some authentic Chicago deep dish. The pizza and house salad were amazing! All combined with some red wine - it was overall a perfect casual Chicago -styled dinner

It was pleasant, there was a miss communication where our youngest had her bottle tossed out it seams. After I asked if anything could be done she handled the issue sufficiently. It didn’t ruin the evening, that started off wonderful thanks to the hassle free booking that OpenTable provided. Check in was also a breeze; knowing a Friday night would be busy we arrived 10 early with more than half of our party which may have made it easy.

I don't know what happened to Connie's, but this was bad, start to finish, on a Wednesday night before a Sox game when they should be on their game. Starts at the bar while waiting for one of the numerous empty tables on the patio. Beer special worded 'Until Supplies Last' which I still can't quite comprehend. The bartender said they ran out of the special beer over the weekend. Why couldn't they change it on Monday or Tuesday? We pre-order a pizza and get seated. I asked the hostess for a booster seat which she fails to bring so I go inside to find one. We order a family salad with the bucket of dressing on the side. Comes out 15 minutes later with dressing on it. Waitress takes it back, comes out 5 minutes later, says it will come out in 2 minutes. 10 minutes later my wife walks in to see what's happening and finds our salad and server at the bar. 5 minutes later, the pizza arrives rendering a starter salad pretty useless. It's Connie's so the pizza was pretty good - got to give them that. Before bill arrives, my wife show's the 'Did We Do Something Wrong' email coupon for $15 off $30. Waitress couldn't comprehend what to do with it so we had to explain to write down the code. She rings the tab and only presents the final signature page without the breakdown of items ordered. Every single function in the restaurant failed at something - kind of unbelievable. So Connie's, next time you wonder if you did something wrong, just read this and figure out how to manage the restaurant again.

I had over 20 people coming to have a family gathering for Pre-Christmas party. My husband had said to try Connie's and I am so glad we did. We had the best service, best food, and the best time! The waitress took the picture of our group for us and it was so much fun to be there. I will definitely go there again and have parties there again!

Connie's has been a Chicago staple for many years. Great pizza with 3 styles to choose from. Thin, regular, and thick crust. Great sandwiches, and an assortment of appetizers and salads.
I had 16 people in my party and not one complaint. That kind of says it all.
Daisy was our server, she kept our glasses full and made sure everyone had what ever they needed. I have had many group parties here and have never been disappointed with the food or the service.

The food is so very good. Service was good except 4 of us ordered individual pizzas. My one friend was finished eating hers before our 3 were served. Not a big deal, but rather odd. One of 2 of the ice teas ordered was served quite a bit before the other.
That's why I rated service mediocre. We haven't experienced that before . . .

Good pizza at reasonable prices. Great place to go before a White Sox game as they have a shuttle service to and from the restaurant to the game. The original pan pizza is quite tasty but does not have much sauce.

My family and I have never had a worse dining experience than we did at your Archer location last night. Our reservation was for 11 people at 5pm for a birthday
I don’t know were to begin. Our server was Shari, and although she might be a nice person, she is a horrible sever. My husband and I were the first to arrive. Shari gave us menus, we asked for water and a glass of wine. It must have taken 10 minutes to bring the water and wine. The restaurant was not that full, so we couldn't figure out what was taking so long. I don't even know where to go from here. The family arrived, Shari took forever to come to the table and take drink orders, and what seemed like forever to bring all the drinks. We had to wave her down numerous times for drinks, to take our food order. Nothing went well at all. The pizza arrived cold, we were missing pizza’s, one of the pizza sat on the tray table and was not served. No one was eating at the same time. At two different times family member got up to complain. The manager came over, and was not much help either. She took one of the pizza’s that was served cold back to the kitchen to warm it up, and we were still missing a pizza. At that point, who cares, the evening had been a disaster. She brought out complimentary deserts, but we had brought our own cake. It took 2 1/2 hours to be served pizza’s and drinks.
This was the most horrendous dinning experience I have ever encountered in my life.

Thanks to all the friendly staff, service was great, food was great, and we always feel welcomed. We will be back..
