I live a block away, so I go to Happy Camper a lot. They really have been spot on with the covid dining precautions-taking temperatures, tables really spaced out...as always, great good and drinks and fun environment!!

Please please please get your bouncer under control. He is so rude to all women and people of color it is ridiculous (the one without the beard). Today I even had to say something because this has been a pattern. Please teach cordial conversation and interaction practices it definitely sours the initial experience

Other than that...love the place.

The bouncer or door man needs an attitude adjustment. The way he speaks to guests particular women of color (although he is a man of color as well) is deplorable.

My only comment is that they do not seem to realize the families will be coming to eat, as well as those without kids and the use of curse words, even if certain letters are replaced by characters, is hard to digest.

Every time I go to Chicago, I make it a point to stop at Happy Camper but was disappointed this time. I was told by staff that patio was first come first serve basis. When we arrived for our reservation time, I asked if we could sit outside. The hostess told me that those tables were reserved for those that requested patio in the OpenTable notes. Nowhere in the reservation booking is this mentioned, and she did not care to be accommodating nor apologize when I mentioned that another employee told me otherwise.

Once we sat down, it took another 15 minutes before a server came to our table. The food is consistently good, but service is something to be desired. We did not see our server for about 35 minutes toward the end of our reservation, until she came over to kick us out as our 2 hour limit was up. I have had consistently better experiences at Homeslice and will continue to go there.
