Lots of love for Mity Nice... my friends and I have eaten there many, many times over the years. The only disappointment... on rare occasion... is that not every chef has the knack for whipping up fabulous popovers. :(

Always love the home cooking here, especially the chicken pot pie. Fabulous! Salmon is very good too.
But the blueberry cobbler with ice cream out of this world. Sinful! And of course we always love to see Antoine.

The food at Mity Nice is very good, but my favorite thing is the amazing service. From the gentleman who seats you to the servers to the people pouring water to the guy at the bar who makes sure you're pleased with drinks and whatever is on TV, they make a real effort to make you happy!

We continue to visit Mity Nice for a good, reliable experience. Food is very good and service meets or exceeds expectations. Only issue this time is that we made a special request for one of the half booths when the reservation was placed and the request was not honored.

Everything was great......except when it came time for the scratch off for double or triple points, the L E T T U C E app did not not work and I was unable to get extra points. I would have given 5 stars if it wasn’t for that. There was another customer with the same problem and the manager didn’t know how to handle it. She submitted an email for me to LETTUCEEATS but as yet, I have not heard from them. I’m not happy.

We took our out of town relatives here because the food is always excellent and we had a show following at the Broadway Playhouse next door. It was excellent and we are never disappointed.

We chose Mighty Nice for a re-union with friends because we knew we would get great food and service, and the ambience is conducive to conversation. So many restaurants are so noisy that you cannot hear yourself talk, but not Mighty Nice, even when it is busy. Our friends had never been there, and they loved it. The cheese popovers were a huge success, and all our dinners where delicious. Our server was fabulous. Unfortunately, I don't remember her name. In short, we had a great time at Might Nice and can't wait to return.

Great service, food was so plentiful as I took leftovers home, and they even treated us for dessert as we were seeing a show later that evening. Loved the phrases on the walls throughout as it lent to a playful, humorous atmosphere.

After 2 or 3 weeks of pure hell at work, late nights, etc.,I really needed a treat. Mity Nice was my treat. Wonderful meatloaf dinner, attentive waiters and water staff. Only issue, not their fault, had to sit next to table with 'Minnie Mouse' -- woman who was talking constantly in the high pitched kinda voice. Everyone cleared out by time I was done for dinner except Minnie and her table. Ugh. Anyway, other than that, great experience.

Been coming here since it was the Chestnut Street Grill. Consistently excellent dining experience. I have spent my career in the hotel industry, involved in the Food and Beverage business. It takes professional expertise to operate a restaurant this well for such a long time. Well done and much appreciated.

one problem. they changed their specials and I didn't know it. So I ended paying $10.00 for a wine that i thought would cost $5.00 as it did the time before. It would have been nice if the bartender had told me before I ordered.

We were surprised to find the restaurant in the Food Court at Water Tower Place. Its hard to find on the mezzanine level. The menu is good, burgers and some comfort food. The popovers as bread was a nice touch. Overall, more of a place to drop into when you are on Michigan Ave than a restaurant to book a reservation for. We will go back.
