Dining in Chicago with a large group isn’t hard if you know where to go and the best time to make those restaurant reservations. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday with your family, need to entertain business clients or meeting with friends to watch the big game, large groups are welcome in many establishments throughout the city.
Family-friendly restaurants like Café Ba-Ba-Reeba and Emilio’s Tapas are great whether or not you have kids in your party.
If you’re heading to a big game either at the United Center or want a bar atmosphere, WestEnd Bar and Grille lets you get in on the action.
Brunch is popular in Chicago but the lines can be down the block at some hot spots. Head to Wishbone in the West Loop but get in early if you want your entire group to be seated together.
Ethnic restaurants are usually a good bet for large parties. Many of the restaurants in Greektown can easily accommodate large groups and some even have menus specifically for large parties. Most also have party rooms or outdoor space for when the weather cooperates.
Hosting a large party for dining in Chicago can be enjoyable and delicious when you find the right restaurant. Luckily Chicago has plenty from which to choose.
