South Branch is Chicago’s hottest weekday gathering spot, and boldest riverside event space. Envision lavish outdoor parties in the warm summer sun or holiday parties where the sprawling views of snow falling on the Chicago River accentuate the occasion. Big enough to host the largest affairs, but versatile enough to accommodate many smaller gatherings at once, South Branch can handle groups from 20-500. Closed to the public on the weekends, South Branch is exclusively available for private events.

We just had salads, but they were very good! Service was speedy which was appreciated because we were trying to make a show. The space was large and nicely decorated.

Have been there several times for dinner and lunch. However, the food was only "fair" the other day but the meal started with the hostess being extraordinarily rude. Disappointing.

Pretty good place for a business lunch. Nice view of the river. Our tomato basil soup lacked basil flavor and was a little rich. My turkey burger, while good, was constructed in such a way that it constantly fell apart. So knife and fork were employed. Overall, not bad and I will probably return.

This was my first time at South Branch. I had reservations for 2 for a business lunch. I have never been so rushed at a restaurant! From the time I arrived to the time I left, we were asked about 12 times if everything was OK, were we ready to sign the bill, did we have any questions, can we get something else for you, etc. We weren't even offered dessert. There was no line at the door so there was no reason for us to be rushed out of the restaurant. By the time I WAS ready to sign the check, I was thoroughly offended. I ordered the shrimp salad special and requested more romaine lettuce ; I didn't complain while I was there since I was already embarrassed; the restaurant was my choice.

Nice restaurant for dinner, it wasn't too crowded (but it was a Monday night). Service was good, as was the food.
