Located at the corner of State & Kinzie in the heart of Chicago’s River North neighborhood, the latest DineAmic Hospitality locale, Radio Room, offers serious style in all that they do. Amidst this 10,000-square-foot trendy paradise, you can expect a playful remix of your favorite-sips-of-all-time, served in creative and photogenic glassware. The beloved American-Traditional cuisine turns up the volume on all the greatest hits you know you can’t deny loving. It wouldn’t be a DineAmic concept without a supreme focus on crave-worthy tastes, and Executive Chef, Andrew Sikkelurus, hits all the right notes with a menu worthy of a mic drop. Hosting up to 300 guests at full capacity in four unique spaces, Radio Room delivers as your new go-to for everything from game day to late-night jam sessions. In a city with more food & drink establishments than we can count, this new Chicago icon offers a laid-back, no-frills kinda vibe with an emphasis on letting the good times roll.

We got there a bit early but they woudl not seat us even though we stood next to a vacant table for an hour. Bartender shorted change for a drink. Got the wrong check. Food was mediocre. Server asked if we wanted a small serving of guacamole for the dry fish tacos then charged us $4 for less than a tablespoon of it. Manager came by to ask how things were, took the check and acted like he was going to delete the charge then came back with the full amount. I'm sure it was just a bad night and a series of circumstantial things but good restaurants make sure these things never happen. If they do, the token $4 off would have gotten a return visit. As it is, one and out.

The manager and staff of the Radio Room bent over backwards to make our engagement celebration special - all at the last minute. Our gratitude to them for helping us make a memory! Good beignets- and croque madame!

This is a loud sports bar playing bad music and serving food that is tasteless and just bad. The one bright spot was the old fashion, they actually did a nice job with good ingredients. The wait stuff while trying to be upbeat were very unprofessional and clearly had no idea what was on the menu. We started out with “Breads and Spreads” which the two bubbly waitresses said were AMAZING….well the hummus was tasteless, the pimento cheese looked like the hummus but was so bad we only took one bite, and then came the Artichoke Dip which was more like a salad dressing without taste. Luckily, because the waitresses don’t know how to time food, while we were tasking the dips our main courses came out. We both had a salad, the salads were fine, actually the veggies were all fresh. When we started eating dinner we pushed the 3 jars of mush away, and even when we left no plates were removed. The salad may have even been good, but I had to sit there staring at this disgusting spreads as the staff just walked by. While we were laughing about how bad the service was, the busboy decided to fill my Ginger ale with water before I could stop him. This place is a hot mess. There are really good bars and sport bars in Chicago, this isn’t one of them. Don’t be fooled by their website which looks cool and fun, this place is neither.

Have been here numerous times to watch football games (both college and pro) when this was Public House and even one other time since it changed to Radio Room, and have always had a good experience. So I was pretty disappointed when I brought a friend from out of town here on Sunday to watch the Bears game and it wasn’t a good experience. I made a reservation a few days in advance because I know game days can get very busy. When we arrived, the hostess tried to put us at the tiny table next to the drum set where neither one of us would’ve been able to watch the game without difficulty. I immediately asked for another table, as there were numerous unoccupied tables on both sides of the restaurant, but was told those were all reserved (even though the football game had already started but I wasn’t going to argue with her). So we ended up grabbing 2 seats at the bar on our own.

Was also disappointed with the atmosphere and game watching experience…again this has always been a great place to watch games which is why I brought my friend here, but this time around it was very sub-par. The sound of the game wasn’t on half the time, even though everyone sitting at the bar wanted it to be. Whoever was in charge of it kept switching to music during tv commercials (fine) but not switching back to the game sound right away, which was extremely frustrating. The tvs also kept switching which games were shown on which screens, which was also frustrating.

Looks very cool and description suggested a dress code so I was expecting more than a sports bar with lots of fried food and shoulder to shoulder crowds. But it's a sports bar with lots of fried foods and shoulder to shoulder crowds.

The food was good, but they are struggling with service challenges. From the host, wait staff and bar tending. We are far from high maintenance and really tried to be patient. We made reservations and arrived early. Directed to wait at bar which we happily did. Took a while before we were served. No one came by to seat us when the time arrived and passed. So we checked back in ourselves even though they were not busy and we were right next to the host station. Finally seated and we were greated by wait staff fine. We ordered appetized and main course, and waited quite a while only to have both orders arrive at the same time. The order was placed that way by the wait staff. Then they disappeared for quite some time never asking to check in or get another drink. Finally we were able to get a bus staff to get attention from wait staff. Just seems everyone was distracted but not busy. Most of the staff were watching TV (Sunday around 4:30) or talking amongst themselves. Hope the feedback is helpful to improve.

Service was great. And that is saying a lot these days when it seems like there is perpetual understaffing.
Had a nice booth and good location with two kids 9 and 11. Burgers were really sloppy. asked for single patty with cheese and toppings on the side. both came slathered with mayonnaise. Chicken sandwich was super sloppy to eat fell apart and sauce everywhere. flavor was ok, but not amazing. Eggplant parm sandwich was 'fine' according to our vegetarian diner.
Cauliflower appetizer was AMAZING (highly recommend. Order two) and curly fries were good.
Good for adult night out and appetisers.

Really appreciate their service. I asked for warm water because it was really cold outside and we were doing the bar hoping. Our server said let me ask from our kitchen and one min later we got warm water and normal water as well. The staff is really fun and polite. It's the best version of Three dots and dash. The drinks and food were so good.
One thing I didn't know before is that their washrooms are downstairs and you can tip the cleaning lady. I didn't have my purse but added in the bill. Will visit here again.

Great, but was a little too loud for a Wednesday night at 7pm. Totally get it for a weekend or if there were more people, but I’d recommend reading the room and turning the volume down a bit when it’s that sparse of a crowd
