About

Satiating hungry spies since 1966… Are you looking for more than just a fantastic dining experience? Then this is the dining destination for you. This clandestine restaurant and bar takes you on a mission to explore a world of espionage--completely engaging you by assigning you an agent name, sending you on a recon mission and offering you a menu filled with furtive eats and fun cocktails! Our culinary agents craft delicious scratch-made food including Fried C4 Cheddar Cheese Curds, the hand-crafted Readers Selected #1 Burger in Chicago, the M.O.A.B. (Mother of All Burgers), and an array of savory entrees, healthy salads and vegetarian options as well. Your mission awaits you, agent! PLEASE NOTE: We have a shagadelic dance party on Fridays and Saturdays starting at 10pm, all agents under the age of 18 must be cleared of their mission by 8:30pm on these days.

Took my children there for my son's 6th birthday. They had a blast! Love how interactive it is and my kids loved the magician. The service was great - they all get into the spy theme. Food was good, my kids had the burgers and my husband and I shared some appetizers. I think you go there for the ambiance over the food though.

It was everything that I'd expected. The place felt like neutral ground for spies and assassins. The service was fast and friendly and the wait staff did an excellent job of living into the world that the restaurant was portraying. I will definitely return for this mission!!

A fun place for families with elementary and older kids. Lots to see and keep the family entertained. The food was good. The kids meal price was a bit expensive as they are too busy to eat their food!!

Had a great time at SafeHouse. Amazing choice for a first date! When we arrived we did not know the password but easily passed the clearance test to prove we weren’t double agents. The spy theme is well thought out and executed throughout the entire experience. Friendly staff and servers who were helpful on our mission to explore the safe house to find out the password. The overall feel is very cool with both hidden and plain sight allusions to espionage. Will definitely be returning. Protect the password at all costs. ✌🏾

Very fun for kids! Great atmosphere! The food was not great, I would not recommend the spy package for adult or kids for several reasons. Simply not worth it. Order your food ala cart. Souvenir cup included with spy kid package is nothing special. When we got my sons drink I thought it was just a kids cup at first and we missed the souvenir, but nope the traditional kids cup you’d expect to get is the souvenir cup. Kids are so preoccupied with the magician and everything else that they don’t care about the cup or even the food really. The spy meal package advertises bottomless sides but the staff never asked us once if we wanted to “refill” on a side. You also get an appetizer per adult with the spy package, again not worth it because you’re gonna be up walking around with your kids looking at everything that you won’t have time to eat an app. Our waiter got our drink order wrong and billed us for two cocktails when we only ordered one. We then waited 30 minutes for our waiter to check in on us after we were done eating to get our bill. I had to approach another staff member to get our bill (which was wrong due to the drink) so we waited even longer to get it corrected. I would definitely recommend this place as a fun place for kids, just don’t expect great service or food and do not pay for the spy package.

Excellent for a different fun night out with kids. I saw all adult tables, but really it seems geared for kids old enough to read, explore, and understand a bit about spy stuff. Fun night, would recommend for a unique fun evening!

Took my 8yo son for a “mom & son” dinner date. He absolutely LOVED it. So much to do, a the missions he was given to find clues were a blast. Personally, for the higher prices, food was nothing special. Service was a little slow, and my order was wrong twice, my sons food was brought out cold. But honestly, he didn’t care. Despite that, we’d go back for the experience alone. Very fun.

The ambiance and spy theme was great! The magician was fabulous, we really enjoyed him! We told our server upon arrival we were celebrating my grandson's 9th birthday, but nothing was ever done for him. We observed another table celebrating a birthday and the staff sang happy birthday and made a big production, we didn't get that. Our food temperature was warm at best, even sent onion rings back as they were the worst! Were told the beer and wine were half off, but later realized it wasn't reflected on our bill. Overall the staff was friendly, the food is overpriced, but I guess you are paying for the "experience" which the kids did enjoy.

My boyfriend and I had a fun time here! We purchased the dining packages with unlimited drinks and sides and it was totally worth it. The food wasn't exceptional but it was pretty good, we especially enjoyed the pretzel appetizer. There's a lot of fun activities to do here so make sure you come with lots of time to do them!

Food was not very tasty. Do they use canned chicken in the Mac and cheese?? First servings of fries were cold. These were replaced.
The experience was not fun for two adults and two 14 year olds. Just haphazard and ridiculous.

A very unique dining experience. Our server, Agent Candy (aka Lizette) was fantastic.

The food was "spylicious" and the missions they had for the guests made it fun for everyone from my 9-yr old son to my 68-yr old mother-in-law.

This is quickly becoming downtown's must-go attractions and possibly Chicago's best kept secret. -It is spy headquarters after all.
