Went with a large group for lunch at Drews prior to Briar Street Theater performance. Luncheon menu was varied, the food was delicious (the garlic truffle frites are to die for....), and then dessert. If you have nothing else at Drews, have their bread pudding. Amazingly delicious, just as advertised. Even though we live some distance away, my wife and... More

Stopped at Drews for brunch before the 2pm show of Blue Man Group at Briar Street Theatre. The food was great and came out fast. The bloody Mary bar had so many great choices - a classic meal in itself! We sat at the bar and got top notch service from Christian.

I really can't say anything different than everyone else has said. We were delighted with our first-time experience at Drew's. The service was flawless, the staff highly attentive in a non-obtrusive manner and the quality of the food, its preparation and its presentation were really top-drawer. We'll definitely be back for more!

Enjoyed this restaurant with my companion before heading to see Blue Man Group, which is less than a two-minute walk down the street. We had reservations on a Saturday night for 6:15 p.m. and it filled up quickly. Service was efficient and friendly, except at the end where we had to ask the hostess to track down our check so...

Stopped for dinner following Blueman show. Our reservations were for 5, but we showed up around 4PM. They were most accommodating and seated us even though they were just setting up for dinner. I ordered the white fish which was served with asparagus risotto and sautéed spinach. The risotto was amazing and the fish with the spinach was absolutely fantastic.... More

Went on Saturday evening with my wife and our daughter's mother-in-law. Drew was there to welcome us. Knew right away this was going to be a great experience. Service was excellent without being hovering or too personal. Menu is creative, with everything from fancy appetizers to imaginative sandwiches to wonderful dinner entrees. Great ambience that manages to be elegant but... More

We visited Drew's on Saturday night during the big Cubs game when they won the spot into the World Series. So it was a rather raucous, fun crowd with much cheering any time a run was scored! Despite the revelry, the restaurant had a very elegant, reserved feel to it. The food was excellent - shrimp & scallop cerviche was... More

Drew's is one of those restaurants that you finally go to and wonder why you hadn't gone before. You find out how awesome it is the minute you walk inside. Initially my family came here because they had a great deal for parking during the NLCS at Wrigley. For $5 we parked until the game was over. Well, that wasn't... More
