We had the buttermilk chicken sandwich, cauliflower dish and macaroni and cheese, those were all wonderful. The kids meal pizza was average. We will definitely go back!

Great experience start to finish. The staff and service is top notch and cant wait to bring out of town friends there again so they can see how amazing our city and dining options are top of the food chain compared to other cities. The Loop is now our go to spot to kick the night off. 8 thumbs up out of 5!!!

First time I’ve been here & really enjoyed it! The food was delicious and I love the decor & lighting. The nachos were so good, weird that had ranch, but it worked.

Food was excellent - the French dip was one of the best I've had! Everyone else I was with liked their food as well - the steak tacos, the juicy lucy - all were very good. Parking in the area is difficult, though.

Good food and service but super noisy and was only 25% full. Could not imagine what sound level is when place is full.

Service was really off.
We sat street-side, the manager said he’d send out a server, 10+ minutes later we went inside to request a server, a few minutes later she arrived.
There were only 20-30 people inside, no others outside.
Food was warm and tasted like it should.
Would not recommend, will likely not return.

Ruined Father’s Day meal. Horrible service. They didn’t open to serve guests today. Short handed, paid no attention to us. Had to wait a while to even be acknowledged. Then we were brought beverages (wrong at that). Coffee was cool. Drinks never got refilled. Wanted to order mimosas but couldn’t get the attention of anyone long enough to ask. No bartender on hand. Ordered our food to a server that was very short and abruptly impatient with us. Didn’t feel comfortable asking any questions. Had to grab the attention of any server that passed by to get anything. One of the off duty servers came in to eat and ended up having to help/work. It could have been a different experience if they bothered to acknowledged they were short handed and in the weeds but no one even seemed to care. Had to grab attention to even get our bill. This was the worst dining experience we’ve ever had due to the lack of concern for their lack of enough help and poor slow service. If there was a manager on duty (only two servers/no bartender) they shouldn’t be a manager any more.

Horrible experience! Our reservation was ignored, as were we for over 25 mins. Complained twice, but the servers felt no need to wait on us. It was not busy! I've been in the industry for 16 years and there was no excuse for this. Everyone was standing around chatting. We went next door to Black Sheep and had a fantastic dinner! The Loop will never get mine or my friends business back.

Our server was attentive and our entrees arrived extremely quickly. I had been craving fried chicken but unable to indulge since I learned that most fast food places use MSG, so it was a delight that they bread their own chicken here! My husband also enjoyed his Juicy Loopy burger, and the extremely generous portion of chocolate chip cookies. The butterscotch creme brulee was actually burnt on top and I should have just scraped that off; although the custard hadn't actually set, it was still delicious.

Very loud, difficult to carry on a conversation with my friend. TV's were on, music was on, and everyone seemed to be screaming to talk over that background noise. It was a Saturday night so maybe other times are less insane. My friend and I are middle aged so for awhile I thought, it must just be us, but then I saw a 20 something woman walking through the bar looking upset holding her hands over her ears, so I knew it was not just me! Food was mediocre. Service and drinks were good. I won't go back. When we left, we felt like we had been at a heavy metal concert, our ears were ringing. I don't get this "energetic" decibel level thing.

Breakfast 7 grain seed bowl was delicious! Also, I always appreciate when you ask for crispy bacon you actually get it done right. It was early so still low-key but all staff were really friendly.

I cannot leave feedback on The Loop located in North Loop as my reservation WAS NOT HONORED and the location manager was horribly rude.

Fortunately, the location at West End was kind enough to transfer the reservation and we had a wonderful experience there.

Probably will not return to the North Loop location again based on this experience.

First, don’t go for a Sunday brunch, there isn’t one. We anticipated the carving station, pastries and a variety of eggs type breakfast options and salads. Instead we are handed menus. My basic breakfast was served with less heat on it than the room. Husbands breakfast burrito was cool too but he didn’t mind.
The waitress was very cheerful - which is the only reason we stayed. It wasn’t her fault the open table description was over a YEAR outdated. Definitely not a place that is open early for a “brunch crowd”. There were only three tables of people there and the bar (that’s in the center of the restaurant) was empty.
We ate and left all with in an hour.

Made reservations for 10pm as we both work late. Arrived at 10pm no host and no signage telling us to seat ourselves. They were turning the restaurant into a night club as we sat, after I had asked an employee of we seat ourselves and if they still serving food, he said yes take a seat good served till 11p. We waited after we seated and nobody stopped by after about 7 or 8 minutes so I stopped someone.he said oh yes. I will be right back. He hurried back with menus(for brunch). We ordered cocktails from the menu(not the same as online). Cocktails arrived in a out 6mins. We had already ordered food took about 12mins. Overall it was good. Food was not outstanding. I would go again but during morning dining hours. To give them another try. As I feel everyone was to busy getting ready for the DJ.

My wife and I frequent the loop and usually we have a great time and enjoy the service. The restaurant was not very busy at the time we were there but it was still difficult at times to find our server. We had to ask for refills a few times.

The reason for my low review is not based on the foods. It’s based on something I heard from one of the managers while he was at the table across from ours. He was telling the customers that he is buying dessert for all of the mothers since it’s mother’s day. He said he was extending this to all mothers.

I found it weird that it wasn’t offered to my wife. We were there celebrating Mother’s Day and even had our daughter with us. I would be interested to hear the reason why it was offered to them but not us.

Casual bar, went for brunch and had terrible service. Had to send the food back, and we were constantly left with empty coffee mugs and water glasses.

I love this great little place. The menu has a good variety for everyone to find something they like and lots of TV's with every sport you can find for fun. They have recently remodeled and it fits in the neighborhood with a great look. I love their salads and our recent breakfast selection with Bloody Mary's was great. Can't wait for the outdoor patio to open up too!
