What has happened to the cafe? The menu shown on their website (www2.mcachicago.org/pucks) did not even remotely match what they offered on the menu in the cafe yesterday. Far, far fewer items & many of them UNAVAILABLE -- really? So update the menu !! finally...More

On Tuesdays they host an incredible farmer's market with flowers, veggies, fruits, tamales, and crepes. Also, Illinois residents are free on Tuesday(we are not). The Cafe has a beautiful view and is a Wolfgang Puck restaurant. The food was average at best.

The lunch was great and the outside seating was even better. There was no wait around lunch time, and the service was pretty quick. I would suggest everyone try this place out.

Although it was a busy time of day, we were seated quickly at a table with a view of Lake Michigan. The servers were very attentive, but did not interfere with our discussion -- just how I like it. After we ordered, the waitstaff brought...More

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
