Breakfast is a favorite with both early-rising Chicago residents and hotel guests alike, who swear by starting the day with one of the many breakfast options, while The Lobby's approachable, yet American contemporary inspired à la carte is ideal for power lunches and sophisticated dinners.

Afternoon Tea is available on Fridays through Sundays, with seatings at 2:30 pm and 4:30 pm. Please visit exploretock.com to book your reservation for Afternoon Tea.

    Very slow service from start to finish & it was not a busy night. No salad or app plates cleared, before dinner arrived. No wine or cocktail glasses cleaned when finished.

    Unfortunately, my lobster was severely overcooked and given the price of the meal that was a disappointment. It also took over 8 minutes to be addressed by the wait staff after being seared which was strange given there were only about 6 other tables with patrons. It as not work the value or the experience in my opinion. P

    Had brunch at this lovely restaurant. A bit overpriced however the food was pretty good. Service was great and while its a bit fancier of a brunch option it doesn’t feel stuffy
