Situated on the iconic Chicago River with stunning views of downtown, River Roast is a lively social house and gathering place. The menu features contemporary American tavern fare with dramatic presentations of whole roasted chicken, whole roasted fish and slow roasted beef; all carved table-side. The food is handcrafted, yet rustic, with many plates designed for sharing. The bar offers a large selection of local beer, craft cocktails, beer, and wine. With one of the best patios in Chicago, River Roast is a great place to enjoy dining outside on a hot summer afternoon or a crisp fall evening. River Roast Private Events offers six spaces, all with spectacular views, for parties from 10 to 1,000. Saturday and Sunday features our Brunch menu from 11:00AM-3PM. We are open Mon-Fri for lunch and daily for dinner.

    Wonderful service and experience from the moment we arrived. We had an early dinner on a Wednesday at 5pm, so we got to take advantage of happy hour from 4 to 6 PM. We started off with the spinach and artichoke dip, which was so creamy and filling. I love that they provided fresh toasted bread for appetizer. For our mains, we ordered the grilled branzino, mac & cheese sans bread crumbs, and broccolini. Be mindful that this is a large format restaurant so all mains and sides are intended for sharing. The broccolini is a new item and was a bit on the spicy side due to the sweet chili garlic sauce, but I loved it! The branzino was prepared perfectly with the skin nice and crisp - absolutely delightful! I loved the salsa verde paired with this. We did not order dessert because we were so full from the app and entree - and even had some to take home! Can’t wait to bring folks back here!

    With open tables by the window we get sat next to a huge pillar. The service was slow, the food was meh, and for that price, we shouldn’t gone elsewhere. Unless you can be sat outside, I’d pass.

    We sat outside, it was a gorgeous night. The food is amazing. The service was very, very slow. I don’t mean the food preparation (that is as well, but that’s expected). I just mean simply ordering and maintaining our table. Thankfully, we still were able to get to our next event in time. Overall, would definitely go back here again, but will just be prepared for a very slow night.
