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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
