We dined on a Saturday late afternoon with our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter after attending a high school musical at St. Ignatius. Jose was our server and he was outstanding, made on point recommendations. Our table was ready when we arrived, a very nice round booth in the back with a great vista of the restaurant. The guacamole appetizer was a big hit!
We all enjoyed our entrees which included the Thanksgiving dinner, fish tacos, cheeseburger and a pork tenderloin sandwich. Our only complaint was the booth next to us had a group of adults who were very loud and appeared to be quite inebriated. They left during our meal so we did not have to deal with it for our entire visit.

Located on the Mezzanine in Water Tower Place, Mity Nice is tucked behind FoodLife away from the mall traffic, quiet and comfortable. My wife and I went in between events in the area on the 1st Sat. of November, their first day for the Brunch menu. Nice mix of choices (see the menu) well done. Enjoyed our meal and visit.

This is one of our favorite go-to restaurants - the food never disappoints and the service always good. Tried the white fish for the first time and it was fantastic - the deviled eggs are always our favorite starter. Mike, one of the managers - stopped by to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. They even had $5.00/glass wine specials the night we were in which was a plus. You can't go wrong dining at Mity Nice!

Mity Nice Bar & Grill is located in the lower level food court of Water Tower Place and that is its only problem.

It is located way back in the corner of the food court. You go through what looks like the concourse of an airport to find it. Once there it is a cut above so much that is out in front that one thinks "if this place had street exposure you wouldn't be able to get in.

I had the turkey pastrami sandwich which was my error because turkey is turkey no matter how you dress it up. The sandwich was great and the home make potato chips were amazing! Order those! The wine was good.

I always ask myself when I leave a place: Would I go back? The answer her is: Yes.

Mity Nice is a go-to option when you need a break from Michigan Avenue bustle.
Food is excellent, service always great--and the popovers are a secret treat. Very yummy.
It's a quiet and lower light atmosphere, but balanced by the high quality food.
Lighter version of enchiladas and tacos are so very welcome--healthy and tasty.
We find ourselves here often--don't be put off by the location, Mity Nice is a neighborhood gem.

Maybe an off night. It started out by arriving and host tried to seat us before I could state that I had an open table reservation. Then he checked the system and saw that we did and proceeded to take us to a small cramped table after I had requested a booth. So, he did not read the open table request. I pointed out my request and he promptly seated us at a booth. The food is always good but restaurant didn't seem all that clean that night and service was very slow. I have never had an off experience like that before so we will give another chance but had it been our first time, we would have never returned.

I had the turkey dinner - turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes (with the skins on), gravy and cranberries. This WAS Thanksgiving dinner! It was delicious! The turkey slices were fresh, moist, and tasted as though it was just sliced off the turkey. A traditional Thanksgiving dinner should not come just once a year! I am so glad to know I can have Thanksgiving dinner any time of the year here! Very good

This was a far better visit than my last one. Food was far less salty. I bought the Chile Lime chicken tacos. My friend ordered the grilled white fish, substituting green beans for the spinach. Both were well prepared, well presented and of very good portion size. The tacos were not constructed before delivery, so I could decide the proportion of ingredients for each taco. Both the white fish and the tacos came with an appropriate amount of citrus-limes for me, lemon for my friend. Water was refilled regularly. Waiter was attentive, but not hovering.
This is not a 'bowl-you-over' kind of place. It's quite basic. This time, it worked out well. Last time I left thinking I had spent my lunch time licking a salt lick. I was relieved that we were not rushed off of our table after we completed out meal, because I know my friend tends to 'park' at restaurants.
