This was once our weekly date night spot for years. Food quality has gone way down. We gave it 3 or 4 more chances, but don’t plan on returning.

The Mity Nice is mighty nice---couldn't resist. Have enjoyed the delicious food and fun atmosphere for years. This visit was only marred by very noisy, rowdy group holding a birthday party---two teens rough housing almost went through the glass at the front! The parent present was just sitting there letting the yelling and misbehaviors continue. Then two very loud couples came in to replace the loud party. Could not believe how loud-- they were literally yelling at each other. Sad. I'm a grandmother and am very tolerant of kids having fun. I'l old enough to know of hearing issues. But these two tables of folks were off the charts. Not the restaurant's fault, in fact the waiters were trying to help the situation and were apologizing to my friend and me.

Second time for us at Mity Nice - great find - it's located behind the food court of Water Tower Place - good that it's on Open Table, because it will get more exposure that way. I had the veggie burger with sweet potato fries which were excellent! My husband had the meatloaf with onion strings and garlic mashed potatoes and said they were fantastic. The butter brickle ice cream sunday was delicious, although smaller than last time I had it and probably had been stored in the freezer prior to serving, so the butterscotch sauce was too hard.

A really comfy, inexpensive place to meet friends. The Lettuce Entertain You card gives points (sometimes double) for dining, which is easy to rack up $10-$20 quickly. Servers are so nice and aim to please.

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.

We ate at Mity Nice because it was somewhat late and it was walking distance from our hotel. It was a little difficult to find, because you walk through a food court to get to the entrance. It is a very comfortable restaurant. The food was good and reasonably priced.

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.

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!
