The world famous Walnut Room has been a Chicago tradition since 1907. Located on the 7th floor of Macy's on State Street, the Walnut Room was the first restaurant ever opened in a department store. Conveniently located in the heart of the Chicago theater district, the Walnut Room is an excellent choice to take a break from shopping or for a meal and a glass of wine before the show.
Enjoy our Famous Mrs. Herring's Chicken Pot Pie and other well known favorites on the menu.

    We came around 530 on a Wednesday before a 7pm show - it was quiet and pretty empty. Views are amazing!

    The homemade chicken pot pie and cinnamon rolls, which are available on Sundays, were terrific!

    We enjoyed it so much! We sat at a window overlooking Washington Street. It was quite mesmerizing. My companion had come to this restaurant as a child with his grandmother. This was at Christmastime! It was such a a special time for home. They ordered Chicken Pot Pie. He remembered there being a wishbone on top. We didn't find that but our Chicken Pot Pie was wonderful.

    Quiet on sundays in the summer, still great service, I got the chicken and waffles. Not their best as the waffles are really hard and not the fluffy on the inside ones. Food was decent though and prices ok for the city. I'd stick with the pot pie or other standbyes. Service is top notch though, great views though.
