The menu has something for everyone. 14-day dry aged steaks and burgers. Organic, cage free chicken. Sustainable salmon from North Atlantic farms and mussels from the Prince Edward Islands Reserve. We serve wild caught Great Lakes fish, delicious house-made pasta and a seasonal risotto that vegetarians adore. “Fresh just tastes better”
The kids’ menu features the same high quality meats we serve adults, like Kaminsky Farms meat for kids’ burgers and Harrison’s Poultry organic cage free chicken for kids’ tenders.
Come enjoy the simple, seasonal scratch menu as we bring the freshness and relaxation of Michigan’s Harbor Country to the Southport Corridor.
We serve dinner every night, and brunch Saturday and Sunday.
Our party had a great time on NYE at this restaurant. Food was great, service was fantastic, and we are all sad to see them close.
Pre- theater meal. We waited a bit to be seated and meet our server, but things went well after our server appeared.
We went for dinner before the theatre, and the servers were very attentive to our time. The food was outstanding. We shared an appetizer of the Sweet Potato and Carmelized Onion Tart--wonderful! Our entrees were the Striped Bass en Papillote and the Chicken Breast--again, wonderful, and huge portions! We then shared the exquisite apple cobbler--made on order, and loaded with apples and cinnamon. Overall, we loved it. This is not our first time at Grassroots, and it certainly will not be our last. Thank you for a great meal and experience!
It was Xmas so there was a prix fixed menu. I thought the portion on the fish my son had was small for the price, but overall good food and good atmosphere. Very good cocktails as well.
We enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner, prix fixe style. I was so happy not to cook for the holiday. The portions were generous but not absurd. Everything was delicious. My husband had the top loin and I, the gnocchi. The side dishes were great and I cluses in the prix fixe. The service at our table was excellent. The dinner price was so much more reasonable than other places I had seen. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Great evening out. Friendly staff. Good food. Pre and post theatre crowd so plan for that. Bar can get a little backed up but a true neighborhood gem.
Everything was great -- wonderful atmosphere, delicious food -- but the service is always the very best part of dining at Grassroots. Absolutely the best service I've ever had at a restaurant, every time.
Celebrating the holiday and had dinner before seeing a show at the Music Box Theater.
Enjoyed our dinner.
The service was great and OMG, the brussel sprouts were THE best I have ever had!!!!!
Great atmosphere! The service and food were outstanding! A great place for a special event.
Great service and food ! Enjoyed the experience a lot.
I've been to Grassroots before and this was near the top of my list when I realized I'd be having Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant this year. Thank you for giving us a cozy spot to celebrate with a great holiday meal.
We absolutely love this place and try to go everytime we see at show at the Mercury Theatre or a movie at the Music Box. The Buffalo Cauliflower will make you believe you can be a vegetarian.
Lovely restaurant, good food, service adequate and a good dining experience
Food was outstanding. Very fresh and well prepared.
We had a party of 8 and the staff was wonderful. Our server Val did a great job. Food was great!
Awesome place to eat, great food, great service! Exceeded our expectations
We had a great experience. Even when there was an issue with the pancakes, they brought out some beneigts. The staff was wonderful.
It's a great place to go before theater or movie next door...and I will go back, but I found the service to be VERY slow this time, and, when I requested a roll or some bread to go with my salmon, I was brought a piece of rye bread (not classy but ok....fine) and THEN charged $1.00 for the bread. That was pitiful....and I was not warned about it....a decent restaurant that should be above such a cheap charge.
The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The food was delicious, and portions a good size. I would have been more then happy just having the Brussel sprouts for dinner - yum!!
Steak was amazing. Very tender. Best Moscow mule I’ve had ever. Salad and soup incredible
We came here because of the proximity to the Mercury Theater but I think we will be back. The food was very good. Our waiter, Jake, provided menu assistance that proved on the mark and our party of four enjoyed the walleye and the salmon. All in all, I would definitely recommend Grassroots Grill whether your plans include the theater, or not!
Very much enjoyed our time. We were sold on a nice steak of which seemed just a bit tough. But everything else was delightful.
Service was outstanding. Extremely knowledgable wait staff. Interesting twists on old standbys. Great place to go before or after movie or theater next door.
It was a good neighborhood eatery
The food is great. The drinks are great. The service was outstanding. This is our new favorite family restaurant.
Beignets are excellent at brunch. And don't miss the tuna tacos. Iced tea is made from Lipton bags, a big no-no at this level of dining. Dessert list a bit disappointing.
The food is always great at Grassroots. They use a lot of local food, so it's a good sustainable choice. They have a specialty drink which goes with the current show at the Mercury Theater next door. Service was quick and attentive.
Great service and the food once again was perfectly prepared. The walleye was crisp and fresh and the salmon was prepared spot on. Given a lot of competition around their location, we will be returning soon. A great gem.
The space is beautiful! Unfortunately service was very slow. For a table of 5, our entrees came out one by one and the hollandaise sauce on my friend’s eggs benedict was cold and the consistency of mayonnaise. The rest of our food was good but didn’t make the wait worthwhile. It was also my birthday and our server was kind enough to bring us a delicious brownie cheesecake which was the highlight of our time there.
Took my daughter and her boyfriend for dinner before a concert at Wrigley Field. I ordered Salmon and black rice as did her boyfriend. It was very good! Done perfectly and presentation was very nice. Daughter ordered Macaroni and Cheese. She says it was the best she ever had. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Great location easy walk to Wrigley Field. Highly recommend.
This is the 3rd time we've dined at Grassroots Grill and each time we've been pleased! First time was a large group, 2nd a small, and 3rd just the two of us, but food and service have been excellent regardless of the # of diners. It's a perfect place for dining before or after a theater event, or for just a relaxing meal with friends. Their menu is limited and changes with what's in season, which makes each dish delicious! Their cocktails are also different and delightful. You can tell they put much thought into making it a dining experience without being outrageously expensive. I highly recommend Grassroots Grill!
Went there for pike, it was over cooked as well as veggies
Open table gave it 4 stars, not even close
Attentive service and delicious chicken dinner. In combination, a lovely evening!
One of my neighborhood treasures !
The Cobb salad was excellent. Very fresh tomatoes, fresh leafy greens, crisp onions, avocado, crunchy bacon and a perfectly hard boiled egg, plus the added steak was perfectly cooked. I’d highly recommend this dish to anyone looking for a healthy option. My friend seemed to enjoy her Mac and cheese as well.
Our waitress was great! Made sure we had a great experience
Good food friendly staff...,I highly recommend this restaurant.
An excellent place for brunch! Enjoyed the food very much. Great service too!
