We are here the day before Mother’s day. The food is excellent. The prime rib is their top sell. If you want to try it, make sure you get here by 5 pm. Any time later than that, it will guarantee to be “sold out”....More

Great restaurant overall, been coming here for years. The Sea Bass with Mustard Crust is awesome, but don't order the Bone-In Angus Ribeye - very fatty, touch, lots of gristle. Everything else I've had is very good.

I had high expectations after reading the reviews... Dinner was ok. I had a salad and my husband has the broasted chicken. Service was good. I won't go out of my way to return.

We ate at the Great Escape when we were staying at a local hotel and ready to fly out of O’Hare. We loved it so much that we stopped on our way from Central Illinois to Milwaukee. My husband loves their Chicken Pot Pie!!

Our yearly visit before vacation did not disappoint. Wide variety of items on the menu. Reasonably priced for being in Chicago. Food is good, service is great and you won't leave hungry!

We had the homemade chicken pot pie, it was wonderful! Our server recommended some nice drink choices, along with the food. Great history and beautiful wooden décor.
