Worst service ever. The restaurant was busy, but not so busy that it was any excuse for the extremely poor service I received. There were three people in our group. When we got there the waitress asked two people what they wanted to drink, and just ignored the third person. The drinks took forever to arrive. The food was decent,... More

The View has been on Harlem Ave. for quite a few years. The owner, George, has owned or managed a few different restaurants in the area. The menu is quite extensive and some of the dishes are quite good. I personally loved their soups. The restaurant is always clean. A big plus is that it's open 24 hours. Whenever I... More

Well known in the area for having some of the best breakfasts around. I usually go for the omelettes and have never been disappointed. Really good food and reliable service. Parking is a bit tight at times but still worth visiting.

I followed the advice of others and ordered the Skirt Steak, Medium, Greek- Style. I have to say it was one of the best steaks that I have ever had. Perfectly cooked, tender, juicy and just the right temperature and oh, the au-jus is amazing. I was able to finish the entire steak, so for less than $30.00. I have... More

We decided to stop at The View to eat after a business meeting nearby. It was a good choice as the food was very good. I had the "meatloaf sandwich" special. I didn't really expect an open-faced sandwich with brown gravy on top (I generally prefer red sauce on my meatloaf), but the entree was delicious. The mashed potatoes were... More

The atmosphere, scenery and "view" of the city is excellent. Wait time was short and the food portions gigantic. Didn't have dessert but "viewing" what was on display had my mouth watering. Romantic dinner for two. Would definitely go again and again.

I arrived around 6 am, the parking lot nearly empty save 4 Illinois state police cars parked together , one other car with a guy reading a newspaper probably waiting for someone else to join him and me. (generally if police pick a restaurant it's usually decent food, or they serve good donuts). The place is fairly attractive on the... More
