Comfort Food
Inspired by the work of Adolf Loos whose "American Bar" was designed & built in early twentieth century Vienna. The bar captured an elegance in simplicity; a style that greatly influenced the work of Frank Lloyd Wright & other American architects in the "prairie school". Stone, glass, brass & wood bathed in natural light, presence in the neighborhood is welcomed & profound.
LUXBAR as a neighborhood saloon is designed to convey that same simple elegance. The food is feel-good fresh, natural & easily understood. Artisanal in style, the menu reflects what the partnership views as an accessible cornucopia of what you might eat on just any occasion. The specialty cocktails are from natural, fresh ingredients: simple elegance.
The staff at LUXBAR is trained in the customer care philosophy that has made Gibson’s Steakhouse & Hugo's Frog Bar famous for legendary service.
Reservation requests for patio seating are not accepted. Patio seating is first come, first serve.

Food was ok but not spectacular and we were a bit put off that their tap system was broken - so the main beer offerings were Bud and Bud Light in bottles.

Always fabulous !! Have never had a mediocre meal here and they make (as I have told them) the best Vodka Gimlet on Rush St. I can safely assume that all the other drinks are as good. A special shout out to Abby , the manager, who makes every visit special !!

Have not been here in a a year. The filet sliders are still on the menu and delicious, also a French Dip Sandwich, made with Prime Rib. The Sandwich was heaven! Very tender and juicy! The only disappointment was that there was no longer the King Crab Bisque, which was my favorite item on the menu, and really a go to for me when in the area. I hope they bring it back! All in all, the food is great!

Busy but nice place for Sunday brunch. Service was definitely not great with someone spilling things and serving us warm drinks. Kind of a mess. But overall an ok experience.

Awful experience. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. Not anymore. Despite not being crowded, the service was atrocious. It took us 45 minutes to get our food after ordering and my meal did not arrive until I chased down a waiter to get it. That was 15 minutes after everyone else in our party of seven had eaten. And the scrambled eggs were cold and the sausages undercooked. Nothing was taken off our bill and no offers of a comped dessert or drink were made as a thank you for our patience. The Original Pancake House would have been the better call. So bad it was almost comical!

Our server was excellent and food was good. We were there on St. Patrick's Day so the bagpipe players added a festive touch albeit had us jumping out of our skin as they struck up the drum right next to our table. Luxbar is a great value in this trendy location. The noise level was particularly high that day, but might have been partially due to the holiday.

We planned on coming specifically for the Happy Hour, and online it indicated their happy hour was until 7pm, but when we were seated around 6:10pm, we were informed it now ends at 6pm. They gave us a round of drinks for our trouble, and we really appreciated it! But we’re still a bit bummed about missing happy hour.

My work group has dined here many times. I usually love this place. On a Monday night, our party of 6 came in. We ordered a couple of appetizers and then dinner entrees, mostly salads. One entree was never put in, and after a reminder and nearly 20 minutes, the last entree showed up. It was comped by the manager, but ruined what was supposed to be a relaxing dinner after a long day. I will make a return trip but I think the rest of the group will skip it. Lots of other choices around here.

Service was very good and friendly and food was enjoyed by everyone at the table. Only issue was party of four crowded into a small table right near front door and loud with people walking in and milling about waiting to be seated right next to us, so wasn't as relaxing as could have been.
