Maybe during the day or at dusk this place is a location not to be missed. At 10:30 pm at night it wasn't so great. All of the railings on the outer deck were full of old wine glasses and spit out lemons and it was disgusting. The view over Grant Park is fine but really at night all you can see are lights.

Highly recommend you come when you can see the different buildings in Grant Park and on the Lakeshore and enjoy the view of the lake itself.

We also did not order any food so we cannot make any comments on that aspect.

We have always wanted to come up to Cindy's for the view but always figured we would need to order food. This Chicago trip, my son and I just popped in for a drink in the afternoon. So glad we did! Of course, amazing views, but we did not feel out of place ordering only a drink and soaking in the great vistas. I can see how it would be mobbed at popular times, but Monday at 5pm was crowded, but you could still grab a spot on the railing. We'll definitely be back!

You pay for the view bit the food is also worth it (just not huge portions). Indoor and outdoor options for seating. Plan on making a reservation (months out) or getting there early before they open and waiting in line.

Anyone that visits Chicago or lives there and wants to grab a drink with a view and great vibe, Cindy's encompasses that.
The large open format and of course the terrace overlooking the lake, park and skyline is what it's all about. The drink menu is well rounded offering whatever you're looking for. The food, very pricey and from what I've experienced didn't fully satisfy. Not to knock it, just not for me.
