Second time for us at Mity Nice. Excellent food & service. My husband raves about the delicious tender ribs rack for $21. My veggie burger with sweet potato fries was yummy & huge. Only had room for a sundae dessert. Other interesting ones on menu...for another time. $9 Chianti glasses were great at good price.

It is the perfect before theatre dining. We heartily recommend the shrimp appetizer and the burgers were very good. The chips are not to be missed as are the sweet potato fries. Plus, our server Zach was spot on with recommendations.

Our server went above and beyond, substituting spinach for kale at my request on the entree salad. It was delicious. My friend enjoyed her combo lunch, too.

Met a friend after her shopping trip, close to the Westin where I was staying. Such a comfy place, good, quick service, and so convenient. We both had the seafood salad which was so good I'm still talking about it after arriving home in AZ. We had an early dinner, they brought us expresso from Sacred Grounds, my favorite coffee place.

The food was great, but the service was moderate. We placed our orders prior to two tables that came after us, but had to wait much longer before receiving our order. Does a thin chicken breast takes longer to cook than beef meat?

Our reservation was honored immediately upon arrival, and the "buzz" of the place was fun to watch. The menu was most complete with a good variety of choices and prices. Service was helpful. My wife had a salad which she very much enjoyed while I had the special of the day, beef tenderloin, which was nothing short of excellent. The convenience of theater, our destination after the meal, was an extra bonus.

Took my best friend to the musical for her birthday. She has problems walking, so I wanted someplace for dinner that was nice and we didn’t have to leave Water Tower. Mity Nice Grill seemed to fit the bill so I made reservations. We LOVED it! The good was phenomenal! When we left at 7:15, the noise level was getting rather out of control, so that was a downside. Get there at 5:30 and it’s great. We will definitely go back!!

I've been to Mity Nice a few times and the food is consistently good. This time was no exception but we had a few problems. The hostess was very welcoming on a Saturday night and our table was available even though we were a few minutes early. The restaurant was a bit loud because of a March Madness game that was underway; that's not a complaint, let's all support the home team! Two water glasses were dirty and I would have hoped that they would have caught that because it was kind of a downer. Our server was nice but inattentive. And our food took an inordinate amount of time. Tables around us were being served but not us. We had to flag our server down to ask that she check on it. She did and it came out right after that...but a bit more attention would have been appreciated. We also had to ask for the bill twice. You go out to eat for food and they did well, as always, with that. We all seriously loved our meals: short ribs, two different salads and the french onion soup. Service definitely needs to be improved. Final nit: the three young ladies who were at the entryway as we left were way too involved in their conversation rather than taking the slips that we were asked to return to them upon exiting. Seriously, if you're in a service industry then pay attention to your customers instead of talking among yourselves about non-work related topics.

Always our favorite for Passover. They do an excellent Passover menu.
Bring back the chocolate with dried fruit & nuts for the “goodie bag”.
Happy Passover!

met my girlfriend at Mity Nice Cafe before the theater on Sunday at 6:15PMish.. We let the server know we had theater tickets and he told us salads were a sure thing to order and be out swiftly. We decided on the Pot Pie and Grilled White Fish and we were NOT sorry!! Fish was Delicious and only a sprinkle of bread crumbs on top. came with spinach saute(?) in a little too much oil or butter for my taste. The potatoes were crunchy outside & nicely soft inside. My girlfriend liked the pot pie and we were out in plenty of time for the play at 7:30pm.
Great place but not for Romance. alot of families the nite we went.
...**. the ONLY thing that came up was the Parking. We got our pkng. ticket validated and "after 5PM for up to 5 hours - we were told on the phone it was $12.00, also signs saying that when you drive in. When we paid at kiosk by elevator before leaving it charged us $13.00. Another gentleman After us also was charge $13.00. we ALL were less than 5 hours in lot. There was no one downstairs to ask and a lady had already been waiting to get out of pkng. garage for HELP with the pymt. at Exit. We wer'nt going to wait for a $1.00.....
Think they should change the signs as I know we were not the only 2 people to get overcharged.

We looked at the lunch menu online and knew what we wanted to eat when we walked in the door. Unfortunately it was Sunday and we didn’t get the lunch menu. We stayed and the food was okay but not what we wanted. My daughter ate salad and I had a burger. They were fine but they weren’t whitefish. I really wasn’t expecting a burger place to have brunch...

Wide menu selection, food was very good, waitress was acccomodating, cheesecake was delicious! The only recommendation I have is to monitor the bathrooms more frequently during peak hours. The women's bathroom was dirty and very stuffy. It had not been checked or cleaned since 1:00 or 2:00 in the afternoon.

Used Open Table to make a late reservation. Got us seated quickly on a busy Sunday morning. The food was good and our server was very attentive, even though she was quite busy. This is part of a chain, but what's a trip to Chicago without a meal at one of the Lettuce Entertain You restaurants?
