As soon as you walk through the doors of The Grill on the Alley in Chicago, you are transported to another time and place reminiscent of the great American grills of yesteryear. The unique decor has an elegant feel with its polished hard wood floors, leather banquettes, and white linen tablecloths. A virtual art gallery adorns the walls of our many dining rooms while the sounds of Ella Fitzgerald linger in the background as white-jacketed waiters attend to your every need.
Since opening in June 2000, this high-end steak and seafood house has made its mark on Chicago with locals, and tourists alike. The Grill has become one of the most popular places to gather for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all types of special occasions.
We specialize in fresh seafood, assorted steaks, and chops. Our Mid-Western grain-fed beef is the highest quality beef available. We are recognized for our hearty portions and unlike most high-end steak houses in Chicago, The Grill on the Alley does not treat starches and vegetables as an a la carte dish. Almost everything is made daily, in house, by our Executive Chef Jorge Alvarez and his staff; from our salad dressings and sauces, to our home-style desserts. To complement the outstanding traditional American fare, The Grill on the Alley offers an extensive wine list with hundreds of the finest wines from around the globe.
Our bar is the place to enjoy casual dining in the midst of good company in a nostalgic atmosphere 365 days a year. As the day unwinds in the Windy City, the jackets and ties come off as the crowds shuffle in to relax over cocktails and classic American favorites.
We offer three beautiful private dining rooms and two semi-private dining rooms for all types of special occasions. These rooms are ideal for breakfast buffets, luncheons, business meetings, wedding rehearsal dinners, and corporate presentations equipped with state-of-the art audio-visual equipment. Our unique space, set right on the Magnificent Mile can create a fabulous experience for as few as eight, and as many as 400. We can handle any event you may have in mind, big or intimate, personal or professional. Please feel free to view all of our private dining menu options from Hors D'oeuvres to our popular Breakfast Buffet by clicking on the Private Parties link above.
