Excellent food, and outstanding staff! I frequent Drew’s often. They always cook their steaks to perfection. You get doneness you ask for! If you like martini’s, this is a must. Their ruby red martini is phenomenally addicting! Wine list is great too. Half off wine on Tuesdays! Love Drew’s. Glad it’s in my neighborhood.

What was once a popular hotspot back when my husband and I were dating started falling off several years ago. Enough that we stopped going. But we figured we'd give the renamed "Drew's" a go. The name has changed, but that's about it. Right in the door you can feel the stale sadness... it's just uncomfortable. It's not a good sign when at 8:30 on a Saturday night and more than half the tables are empty. The food was unremarkable-to-not good. The drinks were a rather watery. The service was personable, but not very frequent. I remember when the place was packed and vibrant and the place to be. That's what it should be, especially given it's prime location on the northeast corner of Belmont & Halsted. We will not be going back in its current incarnation.

We dine at Drews several times a year and are never disappointed. We love the martini's, the wait staff is always friendly and attentive, and the menu has a nice variety of items and prices. I love the shrimp cocktail, awesome steak, super burger, amazing scallops!

Wasn't bad but not super impressed. If I go back I go back. If not no loss. I wouldn't consider it a must stop, but more like just another restaurant near Wrigley Field.

We have patronized this restaurant for several years and always enjoyed our meals there. On the last visit, the wait staff did not show the customary friendliness, but the brusque service did not spoil our meal. The waiter may have been doing a double shift for somebody who didn't show. All in all, we will give it another try on our next trip to Chicago.

We had a great time at Drew's and the food was excellent, but we were disappointed in our waiter. He was actually quite rude and condescending about the fact that we had vegetarian diners in our party. He basically said that the chef could "make a plate of vegetables." I inquired if he could check with the chef to see what that might be like, but he wasn't interested in being that helpful...and they weren't busy. I was actually surprised that there was not a single vegetarian entree option on the menu....other than pizza. And one of our vegetarian diners was also gluten free. In the end, the veggie platter that was prepared was phenomenal, but we already felt disrespected as diners by the clueless waiter.

Second time here, not disappointed either time. The food selection and flavor is outstanding, I highly recommend the Pumpkin Butternut ravioli appetizer. Just had burgers this time around for a main course but they were cooked as requested, juicy and flavorful.

This is not a bad review - It is an honest review.

Pluses - Service was excellent - Drinks were good - Sides and deserts very good.

Minuses - We just moved from Savannah so we may be spoiled with excellent seafood sooooo, Scallops were very salty, be sure to use lemon to cut the salt taste - Steak was thin although I'm sure it was 10 oz., just thin.

I would go again and order different main dish items.

It was the first time we had eaten here and will never go back. The food was not what we ordered and while the waiter was nice, he didn't seem to notice or care that the orders were completely screwed up. It took forever to get our revised bill. Nothing - not even the drinks - were what we asked for. We would never recommend.

I went last Saturday night, before a comedy show. I had a reservation and were seated right away. We ordered the bacon wrapped dates and a salad. They were both great. My friend ordered the bowtie pasta with sausage and loved it. Especially since it had tons of sausage and a very flavorful tomato sauce. I ordered the 10 oz filet mignon with mashed potatoes, grilled vegetables (zucchini, squash, corn & asparagus) and sauteed spinach. The filet was cooked perfectly and still an inch tall. It was devine with the red-wine reduction sauce. It is a great neighborhood spot. The manager told us they have specials during the week and $5 mimosa's for brunch. We will definitely be back soon.

It was a get together of 5 out of town friends and Drew's made it special. Our selections were all different ranging from seafood, pork, duck and chicken. Each entree was delicious and visually appealing. Service was quick, responsive and courteous. Definite return visit destination when in town again.
