Great to be able to choose from a wide variety of foods and it sure beats the Sbarro, etc. you normally find at mall/retail environments.

This is a great place to go with a group of people wanting different types of food. And because it's all Lettuce Entertain You fare, it's all fantastic. You are given charge cards, and you walk around "buying" what you want. Nonalcoholic drinks come with...More

Lot of variety on food & drink options. Was a bit confusing to figure out how it worked initially and the person handing out the cards to use for checkout wasn't very friendly or helpful. So, it was somewhat overwhelming when first entering the area....More

A great place to stop for food after a day on Michigan Ave. Lots of variety. The food is pretty good. The pasta is made fresh to order. Good value. Great if you are with a group of people that want different types of food.

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
