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.

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 went for my birthday and I told them but it was not acknowledged at all by the staff. No special dessert or anything. Other than that service was a little slow but the manager was very apologetic about that. Everything else was fine.

Great service! Food was excellent, and the space is beautiful w the lights and chandeliers. We were just bummed that the music cut out and a football game was broadcasted very loudly in the dining area.

Great food and drink menu! Asian cauliflower was out of this world! Sliders are definitely worth a try as well as the Nashville chicken! Our only complaint would be the table we were seated at. It was an extremely dark corner and had to use our phone lights to read the menu and to even see our food 😟 Still highly recommend and will be back 😃

Didn’t stay to dine. Left after 10min of getting seated because it was too crowded & most of the people standing directly behind were too close & did not have a mask on. Didn’t feel comfortable, nobody came to our table, so we left. Never going back.

Another one off from my list.
Really nice place with great selection of drinks and food.
Got a table on a busy saturday night , our server was really amazing.
Tried old fashioned cocktail and had a few tequila shots.
Fries comes with 3 sauces, they have wide variety of selection.

Definitely recommend.

We had reservations for 2. We were sat right away but waited 20 minutes for a waiter or waitress until WE asked for one to help us. We then waited another 45 minutes for our food to come out and our orders were not even 100% correct. Who seemed to be the owner and/or manager of the place kept checking to see if we were ok and he was very attentive, though. Our bill came out and they charge a 3% ‘sanitation fee’ - were you not sanitizing things pre-covid? I don’t get it. We did sit at the bar for about 30 minutes before checking in and that was a great experience there however.

Even with a reservation, being seated was chaotic at best. We waited about 15 minutes at the door. Once we were seated, drinks took about 30 minutes to get to us. They were extremely low quality. Our food took about and hour, and was very disappointing. There wasn’t pimento cheese on the breakfast sandwich. It is specifically listed on the menu as having pimento cheese. When the manager brought over a side of cheese, he told me it was already on the sandwich and this was extra. I had to pull apart the sandwich to show him it wasn’t there. The other food was just fine. It looked so good online and did not at all meet expectations. Overall, it’s pretty good for a dive bar, but I wouldn’t recommend going there for brunch.

Overall everything was good, but nothing special. Don't get the bottomless mimosas, they're largely orange juice (if you're the type of person who likes just a splash or orange juice). Don't worry about dress code listed, most people sitting around us were in baseball caps and hooded sweatshirts.

Was told brunch menu was available with a call - made reservations. Arrived and was seated next to the door although there were many distanced options.

Told no brunch menu - but lunch only.

Service was ridiculously slow and the prices not listed were outrageous.

2 apps - 4 drinks - 4 domestic drafts $140!!

Won’t be coming back.

Great experience and atmosphere. The twinkle lights from the ceiling is a great touch. Liked the energetic and loud music, and the tv's to watch sports. We had a table of 10 and our service was on time with no mistakes. Water glasses were always filled. Drinks were a bit expensive, but good. Apps were awesome. Would have liked a kids menu. Mac & Cheese with short rib glaze and bacon was superb. Overall great food, a little pricey but great experience. Would return.

Nice cocktails, average overpriced food (fajitas way over cooked). Although the cauliflower appetizer was great
Sanitation fee on the check!?!? Not even sanitizer on the table, not sure that was worth the extra!!!
Overall disappointing and expected better quality for the price of the check

Overall service wasn’t the worst the waiter was attentive but kind of busy at the same time food came out within a reasonable amount of time but some of the food was hot some of the food was cold everything was just OK it did look nice inside but I’m on the fence about a second visit or just maybe have drinks. Fish tacos no fries or any side that kind of threw me.

What was supposed to be a nice ending to a birthday celebration weekend turned out to be a disappointment. Came in with a group of seven for bottomless drinks and some brunch. Half the table ordered bottomless drinks. We had to ask every time to get refills. You would think that if a customer ordered a bottomless drink they would be filling them up constantly. We ordered breakfast quesadillas and asked for regular sour cream. Didn’t receive them until 15 minutes later and by then our food was cold. When I got the bill I saw the three percent sanitization charge I asked for it to be removed. When I asked the waitress to do so she said she needed to ask the manager. Which doesn’t make any sense at all since it states on the menu that it can be taken off. All in all a very disappointing experience. I would definitely recommend going somewhere else for brunch.

The waitress was super sweet and attentive. The whole place was decorated with lights and very festive which we liked. The music wasn’t too loud to the point we couldn’t have a conversation. Overall, great place to go for a date.

Weekday dinner with a party of 7. Great atmosphere with good music. Loved the ambiance. Music was just a bit too loud for conversation - which I’d say was the only negative.

Fantastic food and staff. The TV audio in the sports room/side was extremely (painfully) loud, so next time I'll pick the (quieter) club side.

This "new" establishment is not the same vibe as Public House, but seems to have its own attractions. Food was good. Server was great, friendly, informative and attentive without being overbearing. Crowd was diverse in various ways. The only knock was the "Sanitation Fee" in the bill which is basically a COVID "tax". The management should discontinue that.

Service was awful. Took 45 minutes (out of a two hour service time) to get a refill on bottomless mimosas, food order came out wrong, and despite asking our server and being assured that although brunch officially ended at 3 we would be able to get refills till 3:30 (two hours from our reservation) we did not get that and we're denied final refills. The food was fine but unimpressive, not overall not worth the over 300 dollars a brunch for 4 cost.

I enjoyed visiting radio room for the first time. Great decorations to get you into the Christmas spirit. Upon arrival my group and I were seated far in the back. We thought this was nice at first until it reflected in our service. Our server would not frequent our table as much as others. For bottomless it’s typical a server is back to check often. On top of it our meal was very expensive and not worth it. Don’t think I’ll be back for brunch.
