We chose the Weber grill because of the variety of selections on the menu. It was our 1st time there however it will not be the last. Everything that everyone ordered was outstanding! Steak, ribs, pork chop, chicken, burger, scallops and the sides were all so flavorful.

Good comfort good. Friendly service. Dual teams, yet not very attentive. Long periods of time where no one checked in/took orders.

Went for lunch with my husband--we were visiting Chicago from out of town. The concept of food cooked on big charcoal grills is a good one, and our trip-tip "French dip" sandwiches were very good as was slaw and salad. We sat in the open kitchen area near the entrance which was a bit noisy with clanging grill tops. I would recommend sitting in the dining room which is cozy and quieter. Service was a bit slow, but if you are not in a big hurry it would be ok.

I have been to Weber Grill on many occasions and never knew they served breakfast. This was a great find. The selection for the buffet was amazing. Omelets, pancakes , waffles, fruit, etc. Couldn't make up my mind and then realized I could have it all. Recommend it for any meal of the day.

Great food, great service, great setting. Weber is my son's favorite Chicago restaurant to visit...and it didn't disappoint! Thank you to everyone who made our night special...especially to Neil who was superlative in his attention to detail, knowledge and friendliness! :)

Food was just average. Was not busy but took awhile to get food. It sat on the prep area for some time so fries were room temp when we received the meal. Overall I had much higher expectations than what the experience actually was

I often eat at the Weber Grill in down town Chicago. I have never been disappointed with anything I’ve ordered. We had the pork chop and the beer can chicken and both were delicious.

Not a big thing but Open Table asks you to mark if the reservation is for a special occasion such as birthdays. I check the box that said Birthday and I also mentioned it in the notes to the restaurants. After our meal, which was very delicious, we had to ask the waitress for a dessert menu and mention it was my husband's birthday. Then, when the cake was brought over, it had NO candle. It felt as though the restaurant needed the table more than we needed to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday! We sang HB in spite of it. In the reservations it mentions to put your Weber Grill Perks # down in the special instructions box. I did but still had to ask the waitress to look up my #.

The ribs had good tenderness and flavor, ribeye steak was slightly on the tough side and sides were ok. Service was attentive and helpful. Table we were seated at was by a window facing the subway entrance which was not bothersome until a begger started staring in the window pointing at our food.

Weber Grill always comes through for us - we visit yearly on out trips to Chicago.

We especially appreciate how the wait staff easily slightly modifies menu items to make a meal just right - that is a welcome relief from some of the more "our way or the highway" style restaurants.

We'll be back, again...and again...and again!

The filet mignon and beer can chicken were delicious. The atomosphere was like a backyard grill/ lodge feel. The only thing that was disappointing was the tables and booths were so close together you didn’t have privately from tables sitting next to you.

The food is always very good and the wait staff friendly and knowledgeable. What made this visit special was my wife is having trouble with her knee and was using a cane. A big guy greeting people at the door saw her, immediately waved her over to the regular door and let us in there instead of having to struggle with the revolving door. Same thing on the way out. You don't find that kind of courtesy very often any more and we appreciated it.

My wife and I and I are Weber Grill Club members. We go to one of their restaurants every time we are in the Chicago area. We made our dining reservation for 4 via Open Table about 10 days ahead of our visit. Upon arrival at the State Street location, I stepped up to the “Weber Grill Club Check-In” counter. There were 4 employees behind the counter and 2-3 in front of it handling cash. They asked me how they could help me. I indicated that I was a Weber Grill Club Member and needed to check in, pointing to their prominently placed sign. They told me that the sign “doesn’t mean anything” and said I’d need to wait in the line at the other end of the counter. Why would they advertise and promote that perk if they do not honor it?

Once we were seated, we were handed cheap and cheesy laminated menus like you’d get at a far more casual restaurant. We were told that the menu was new and that there were changes. I had intended to order crab cakes as an entree, however, that entree item had been removed from the menu. I ordered prime rib instead. The cut I received had tough grisly spots that were a challenge to cut, even with a steak knife. I’m pleased to report that the garlic mashed potatoes were outstanding.

Unlike the Schaumburg location where management routinely checks tables to monitor customer satisfaction, I don’t think anyone at the State Street location cares one bit about it. One management type guy that I did see who was at the Weber Grill Club Check-In counter when we arrived struck me as arrogant and not wanting to be bothered? His attitude was rather pathetic and disappointing...not the type of service we’d come to know and expect at the Weber Grill. I will be posting this same review on Trip Advisor to forewarn others as to what we had experienced. We’ve already begun looking for another go to restaurant for our monthly Chicago visits. It’s a real shame. Our past experiences with the Weber Grill were outstanding while it lasted. Oh well?

It has been several years since I was last at Weber Grill and I don't know why I waited so long. We did a pre show dinner walking back to the Ford Theater after wards and had a wonderful experience. My Salmon melted in my mouth, while the Meatloaf and Chicken that my cousin and her spouse had were outstanding. The mac and cheese was a guilty pleasure worthy of indulgence. Come Early, take your time, and savor your food and company in an unique setting and very reasonable prices.
