Nice little spot- pretty decor. Basic menu- good plain old American food- great deviled eggs, hamburgers, french fries. Hamburgers come with a nice brioche bun- nice touch. Great mac and cheese made with spaetzle . Friendly staff. Good location. Was there on a Sunday morning and liked that they had brunch and lunch at the same time.

Ate here because it was a block from my hotel. Food was very good, service was friendly. It was nice to find a low-key restaurant close to Michigan Ave. on a Saturday night.

My only minor quibble is that I changed my order a couple of minutes after ordering, substituting brussel sprouts for mashed potatoes, but my food came out with mashed potatoes. But they brought the brussel sprouts too and made everything right.

The service was very slow. We were overdressed for the environment as it is an upscale bar, but my boyfriend was wearing a suit and me a skirt when everyone else was pretty casual. The deviled eggs were delicious as was the mac and cheese. Great food, but slow service for dinner.

Good place for a standard meal but a really bad deal for restaurant week. They served mini portions of the app and desert which made it impossible to get your money’s worth even if you picked the most expensive options. But if I was coming here for an ordinary meal and paying menu price, it would be a decent value

Nice spot to eat. Good food and service. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because the table next to us was really loud, drunk, and SHOUTING the "f" word every other sentence. Very unnecessarily annoying.

Everything about this place was awesome. Our server was so great, and everyone that stopped by our table to deliver food was always so polite and offered to grab us anything else we needed. We got the monkey bread (so good), a deviled egg, the caps omelette (if you love goat cheese, get this!!!) and the French toast, everything was amazing. ☺️

My wife and I were staying at the attached Hampton Inn and visited The Windsor on a couple of occasions - every aspect of food, service, fun time was outstanding. Would highly recommend if you are close to this area.

We celebrated an 86th birthday and the youngest in the party was only 3 years old. Everyone enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and especially the great service. Bloody Mary's are quite special.

While the food and ambiance is amazing at The Windsor, the service in incredibly slow. It took over 10 minutes to receive a drink and the servers and bussers were rushing us even though the place was almost empty when we left around 8pm. Not sure we will be back despite how yummy the food is!

We were hoping it would look like an English Pub or a traditional restaurant in Britain. Instead it looked like a restaurant attached to a motel and that was disappointing. However, the food was quite good as was the service, so overall it was an ok experience.

It was a really good meal. I had the scallops and they were outstanding. Really fast service and the waitress and hostess were really friendly. A little pricy as it is connected to a hotel and that is to be expected. I would recommend giving it a try.

I asked politely if we could put on the Cubs game on the bar tv. she said, if it doesn't interfear with her Cowboys game? I then, very quietly and politely asked for a refill on my beer. she snapped at me, when i have a chance!

The restaurant was part of the hotel so I expected better quality
At the time we walked in only one other couple was in there yet it took awhile to get seated. After making our decision on food we were informed the salmon had run out, it was early. Really? The menu had the fewest items I've ever seen to pick from. We elected to share an order of 12 oz steak that arrived about the size of an 8 oz steak. Cooked great, skimpy on the side of mashed potatoes, maybe there's a potato shortage
Overall it was ok but I would not promote this place

Good little place inside a hotel. The crab toast was really good. Bartender was attentive and pleasant. Nice that it was open to the outside. Wine was pretty good too. Would go back!

I've dined here before, but this was my first time outside on the street. It turns out, the best location is a window seat indoors. The noise level makes for a less enjoyable dining experience.
My waiter was pleasant and prompt. He was courteous. I ordered the diver scallops which were cooked perfectly. The grits were also done very nicely. The mushrooms were heavily salted which was a shame because the texture was delicious.
I would definitely try the scallops again but would substitute a different vegetable.
Typically, this restaurant earns at least four stars, but the overall ambience this time round combined with the overly salty mushrooms just didn't compare to previous meals.
In fairness, once I pointed out the floor, the waiter did offer to have the mushrooms prepared again.
Everyone has a bad day, the food was perfectly fine but not outstanding this time
