I'm usually not too impressed with local/organic/natural blah blah blah restaurants, but this place, right around the corner from our hotel, was terrific. We went for brunch on a Sunday morning, and found the place about half full. Great selection of breakfast and lunch items....More

We ate here with about 15 people. Perhaps they were not prepared for the size of our group but the food was terrible. They did offer us free dessert which was much better than the meals.

This is a fun little place, right in downtown Chicago. The food is all locally sourced and aside from the non-homogenized cream (which was off-putting), it was delicious. We were there for breakfast.

Terrible service, poor choice of dishes, uncomfortable seats and one of our dishes arrived with a hair in it. They were gracious but the rest of the experience did not make up for it. Avoid.

My family and I love going to the Local Root for breakfast When we come to Chicago. The food is fresh and delicious. I definetly appreciate the food ingredients being home grown from here in the Midwest. The service is top notch as well.

For those looking for a healthier meal, this is a good choice. I had the chicken with mashed dill potatoes. Very tasty!! My husband had the open face pork, (he liked mine better). Service was very good. I would definitely go back.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
