The Seafood Tower for Two
jumbo shrimp, seared tuna, snow crab claw, avocado-crab salad, oysters
sauteed mushrooms & onions
The service to start wasn’t great - we were asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside and once we decided told us we couldn’t choose. But once we sat down everything was great! Pasta dishes were incredible!!
Jacob was a great server. We tried the mussels appetizer which was delicious as was the tomato soup. On the menu we miss the ribs and the jambalaya - please bring them back!
Food was mediocre Calamari was very tough.Sam the waiter was excellent!!
Everything’s good 😊. That’s why we’re here almost everyday.
The staff was very attentive and accommodating. They allowed us to select the best seat in the room. It was a fabulous experience. I recommend it to anyone who visits Chicago and enjoy fine cuisine and service.
This has always been one of our favorites when visiting Chicago. Appreciated the outdoor dining but it was very crowded & loud.
Loved the atmosphere, service and food!
One of the worst experiences. The service was bad and the food was horrible. I paid but after 3 bites. I couldn't eat more, the food was just cooked. No seasoning and the waiters took poor care of us. In order words, I paid to sit.
It's a great place, food was yummy, and we had a wonderful time!
celebration 🍾 my birthday 🥳
Benny and his team are the Best! Angela Kidd
Excellent place for a good ocassion
Love Tavern on Rush! I always get the blackened shrimp & broccoli and today my waitress made me a cute virgin “mocktail” that made my day!! Definitely coming back for the sushi.
Tavern on Rush was fantastic as usual.
no better patio in the city - a favorite of mine since they first opened years and years ago.
The waiter was kind and engaging. The food could be much better for price ie baked potato was overcooked and the steak was not served hot. Extra care is needed to take of spiders crawling from above or on table.
Excellent. Loved the outdoor patio seating area
Besides first class food and ambience, the service is what brings us back so often! They honestly know what we need before we even know we need it.
Very pleasant outdoor dining. Our server was great and she did not rush us out. Food was tasty as usual except for the wagyu meatballs which seemed like they are a processed and frozen product. Drinks were tasty as well.
Anniversary dinner, food was excellent, service was attentive but not overbearing. A very good meal!
Spectacular views on 2nd floor patio and great service
Great food, good service, and great atmosphere
People watching at its finest; food came an hour after we ordered though the surrounding tables were being handed food very promptly. We were given free dessert but at least we had people to watch
Waitress was great, Food price was high for the quality, Female long hair bartender was so rude, we watched several customers leave the bar. Manager did nothing to help the issues, really did not care. Not a good experience at all.
We usually visit from NJ once a year and this is one of our favorite places for steaks - which are always cooked perfectly. The location is on the fun, lively intersection of State and Rush streets. The ambience is great inside or out - the dining room is on the 2nd floor and has large windows overlooking the street.
Our server, Jesse, was excellent. The meal was delicious and drinks were good. Certainly an expensive dinner, but very good.
best place to dine in brunch and diner food consistent
and the star second to food is beny world class host being going there for 15 years never disapoint
As out of Towners, we explore great cities’ restaurants. Tavern on Rush is not to be missed. Great BIG martinis, wonderful steaks and top notch service.
Past experiences were very good, but this time was not. Service was poor, food not prepared the way requested, and experience fell short.
Mark was an excellent server. Delicious hummus and rigatoni.
Great food great sever
My wife and I love this place and are here every week. A recent menu innovation to try is the “sizzling experience for two,” which features plenty of steak, lobster and other goodies. For outdoor summer dining, we pair with Moet Chandon sparkling rose. Benny makes it all very special.
Poor service for a renowned establishment. Our server was mediocre at best. We have had great service here before.
Had the seafood tower at a wonderful outdoor table with friends on a beautiful summer day. Service was great. Couldn't have been any better.
The outdoor atmosphere was a lot of fun. Great people watching. The food was okay
Great place, Food, service. Sitting outside id amazing
Had a wonderful dinner with my wife. Had a great group of wait staff helping all night! Food was great and only reason I gave it a 4 for food was my salmon was very well done and I prefer less than medium. Ate it
Wonderful location and great food
It’s always a great time at Tavern on Rush! Mussels in red sauce, Dover sole and an awesome Italian Chardonnay al fresco wins every time!
