Used to live in the area and would regularly pass this place never thinking twice about trying, often thinking it was another version of the Hampton Social. Had a random desire to try the place years later and I’m kicking myself for not giving them a shot sooner. Great food awesome service and even better ambience. Looking forward to the next time we experience this gem
PS when the only reservation is for bar seating don’t sweat it. Most of it is and you’ll be fine
Made a reservation that was honored in timely fashion. Gabby provided wonderful service, always attentive and ready to explain the menu. Planning another visit soon.
Can't beat oyster happy hour at 8 pm!
Went here for national oyster day with my girlfriend and had a blast. Great oysters and great vibe inside
Good seafood shack in the middle of the city - recommend to go here with a small group of friends
A fan restaurant with interesting dishes (on the expensive side).
As always, Fish Bar is fantastic. Consistently great food. The satchmo is a must!
Great Food, knowledgeable service & just a great place to eat
Get the crab sandwich
Simple, yet thoughtful and refined dishes in a casual but comfortable setting. Not great for groups given the layout, but perfect for catching up with a friend (or two). If you are looking to impress skeptical New England-ers, this is the place.
Decent food and ambiance but very small, overpriced portions and drinks.
Solid recommendations and food. Be sure to book a reservation ahead of time to avoid a wait!
We love Fish Bar. The quality of the food is great, the taste and seasoning make Fish Bar among one of the best casual seafood restaurants in Chicago.
To start, they had no knowledge of this reservation. When I checked in, she told me they didn’t have a reservation, and when I showed her the Open Table reservation her comment was, “I didn’t know we were even on Open Table”. We did get the next available table. After waiting 15 minutes for our server to acknowledge us, we placed drink orders. We then waited 30 minutes for our drinks. No acknowledgment of the wait or checking in. When we placed food we waited another 20 minutes for food and one order never showed. When I finally got the attention of our server after eating our meals, I told him of my disappointment with the overall experience by saying “the food was good, but the over all experience was less then ideal and my friend never got her dinner. Can I please have our check?” to which his reply was “I’ll get the manager.” I didn’t want the manager, nor was I looking for anything other than our check to settle up so we could leave. The manager never showed and the server offered a half hearted apology as he handed us the check. Overall, I will not return and not recommend.
