It was a lovely view of the river. The food was pretty good and the beer selection was excellent. The music is a little loud, even for an outdoor patio but still was the best backdrop for a relaxing afterwork drink/dinner

Food was good. Seating was quick. Inside can be a little stuffy so recommend outdoor seating if able. Music played was all over, from happy songs to chill/relaxing songs to even sad music.

Great Bar food and River views. Staff was very helpful and fun; we were'nt able to try the main dishes as we enjoyed several of the appetizers. Will be back for another visit.

Overall it was okay. We sat at the river front. Sort felt like someone was going to walk into you at times. The beers were good. The food portions we quite small for the cost. There was not a lot of food options on the menu. I would say this is a better place for lunch or appetizers than for dinner. The view of the river front was pretty. I found out when we left there are two places to sit one upstairs or next to the river walk way. I wish I had know this beforehand. I would have stopped upstairs first.

Great location on the river. A perfect place for visitors to the city and those of us who work there. Menu is limited but fed us all. It was a good lunch place for sure.

Great spot right by the river! View of both the river and beautiful buildings on both sides - one of my favorite spots during my trip to Chicago. Ordered the jumbo pretzels and churros, which was perfect to share for 2 people. Loved the drinks as well! This seems like the perfect place to go around 5 or 6pm.

Food nothing special and overpriced. If anything, have a craft beer and appetizer, then eat a fabulous meal deeper in the city.

Unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy the outdoors but the service was mediocre, the food tasted a bit stale and came out Luke-warm, there was something dripping on our heads from the ceiling, the bathrooms were closed as there was some type of flooding issue so there was what I am assuming toilet water all over the floor (no, it wasn’t yellow or brown lol) but the whole experience wasn’t great. None of us were impressed with the food but if you want to enjoy some time on the river, this is one of the places to do it at, I would recommend maybe going for drinks and not the food, although the charcuterie board was decent. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Service was great! I don’t know who the owners are, but it felt “family owned” the way staff and managers took care of customers. Food was pretty good and plenty of beers on tap or can to choose from. Perfect spot by the river for relaxing after work.

Perfect spot for a nice day/evening in Chicago. Awesome location on the river. Took stars away because of the river smell and I didn’t eat. I highly recommend the Frose. I’ll definitely go back when I’m in town.

I was pretty upset to show up on time for my reservation just to be told I was 4th in line and would need to wait because “it was more busy than they had anticipated”. They must have been seating walk ups on already reserved tables or over booking reservations.

Exactly the ambiance we were looking for. We went for lunch and mistakenly did not look at the menu before going, if we would have - probably would have gone somewhere else. Not much of a selection

We were excited to sit by the river and have some food and drinks. We were disappointed when we got there for our 6pm reservation and waited 25 minutes to be seated. Once seated we did not see our waiter often throughout the night and found ourselves wondering when they might come back. It just felt like a let down from our excitement.
