We highly recommend to make a reservation before going to this great place : on a sunny day, you cannot find a more beautiful view of Millennium Park and of the lake, while enjoying fresh oysters ( from Mass. ) and a very generous portion...More

My husband and I visited Cindy's after a Friday night Hamilton show during a getaway to Chicago. We were absolutely blown away by the view, which was particularly spectacular at night. We had a few drinks, which were expensive, but it was a special occasion,...More

$10 beers but hey the view was worth it! Being a Chicago native I’ve been use to paying a lot of everything but this for sure is a tourist spot. It’s fun. Maybe more for a special occasion.

Highly recommend! The food was very unique and tasty. The view and ambiance was amazing. This place was actually recommended by our Uber driver... and one of the highlights from our trip. It does have an adult vibe. We were there for an anniversary trip...More

This view is GORGEOUS!!!! You could look at the city, the water, the park below for hours on end. The wait to go up here is definitely worth it. Plan ahead and make reservations!!!

It’s been awhile since I’ve been back to Chicago but was not particularly impressed with Cindy’s. I don’t know if Chicago lacks the edginess u find in other major cities but Cindy’s def did not feel hip at all. The crowd was a mainly older...More

My local friends took me here for cocktails before dinner. Very fun space especially on a nice day. Idyllic views of the boats on the lake in the afternoon sun. Came back the next day for lunch - snuck a spot at a bartop so...More

Wow... the views from here magnificent. You see the bean, the marina and further. We had a Long Island ice tea and it was perfect. The only negatives are that they only offer peanuts & olives or oysters during the afternoon hours and you have...More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of

I don't think they have a happy hour with special pricing. We went at 5:00pm and the place was packed. They are so popular that they don't need anything to draw people in.

I went to Cindy’s for lunch and it is definitely not an inexpensive restaurant. I would imagine the dinner prices are more than lunch so approximately $17 and up, depending on the item.
