There were too many children, it's a provocative spy themed BAR?! Why are there children allowed?! We sat at the bar waiting for our reservations, and were ignored by 3 bartenders before I raised my hand to finally order a drink. Our reservation was at 630 and were not seated until after 7, after I went up to ask about our reservation... upon being sat the hostess tried to stick my husband and I at some flappy hallways table next to the kitchen. I refused the table, we were completely forgotten about and she tried to pull a fast one and seat us at anything she could. When we did finally get an actual table, we didnt speak to our server for 20+ mins. We ordered appetizers, and the cheese for our pretzel was solidified and cold. The the food was mediocre at best. We did not enjoy our time, my husband's birthday was basically ruined. We will never be back!

Too much moving around by everyone in such a small location. Spy instructions too small to read in such dim light.

Great concept but too small. Exit was bigger than half the restaurant

My children and I had a wonderful dining experience on Good Friday in celebration of my birthday at SafeHouse Chicago. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was great. We had the Fried C4 Cheese Curds, Stasi Twists (giant pretzel), Nachos Camp Stanley (with chicken), Goldfingers, Basket of Fries, RQ-1 Rings (onion rings) SR-71 Blackbird (chicken sandwich), and the Fat Bastard (for dessert). The food was piping hot, and the portions were extremely large. We had plenty of leftovers. The manager and our waitress checked on us constantly to ensure that we were enjoying ourselves and that everything was to our satisfaction.

Great place to go to if you want a fun time along with dinner. The only reason my review isn’t five starts is because what our server said the prices were for an alcoholic beverage was very wrong. We were expecting 25 but were charged 40 and then 3 out of 4 of our meals were also charged more than what was in the menu. They need to update menus or provide proper information upfront. Otherwise it’s a very fun place and entertaining atmosphere.

Fun place to eat with kids. Spy themed with activities to keep you entertained. Food was fine, pretty standard chain-restaurant quality and choices. A little pricier than similar food elsewhere but a decent deal given all the extra activities. My only complaint was the service - friendly but slow. I think they are trying to give you time for activities but we were waiting around with tired kids for our check. Would be nice if they checked in more often to see if you’re ready to leave.

I was not impressed with the organization of their staff upon initial contact. They need to clear up their website and inter-company communication regarding group events/party spaces at the very least. We also felt extremely rushed at the dinner.
From start to beginning, it was not a good experience and made for a less than enjoyable dinner.

Disappointing all the way around. Food was mediocre at best. Service was soooo slooooow. Extremely overpriced. Took my 11yo son sand some friends for lunch. Literally too 55 minutes from the time we sat down to get our food which was just kids burgers and fries. It wasn’t even that crowded. Kids didn’t like the food. Buns were greasy. Onion rings were oddly sweet. We got the huge sundae for dessert-it looked great but tasted awful. Brownie/cake was stale. Will never return.

It’s ok for the ambiance. Servers are great and entertaining. Fun setting, however the food was bland. My burger hardly had any cheese on it (and it was a cheese burger). The onion rings were very oily and I could not eat it all. Tasted like old oil

It has the potential to be something great. Fun theme, but could do more spy things for kids, e.g. decoder rings, invisible ink, more who done it solving etc. QR codes, etc. Adult beverages were way over priced. Appetizers good. Main dishes...average.

This was honestly the worst meal any of us had ever had. The price for 4 chicken wings was $12. The burgers were literally as dry as cardboard and the onions rings were so soggy it was ridiculous. Such disappointing for celebrating a special birthday.

We had our kids, 8 and 9 with us. The website raved about magicians and we didn't see anything like that there. Our server was not super attentive and we had to wait quite a bit for refills and such. It was a fun place, but i don't think we would come back. Very pricey menu for burger/fries type food.

We went at lunch, very few people in the restaurant. I think it might be more fun if it’s busy and louder, also they have a full bar but we didn’t have cocktails and I think that might have help to lighten up and engage with the scavenger hunt. Our server kept our glasses filled and the food came quickly and was hot, but the food was average and the price was about what you’d pay for any decent eats in the city. Cool decor and concept is fun. Not sure we would go back, so many other places to chose from.
