Best Restaurants to Dine near Chicago's Soldier Field



Chicago’s Soldier Field’s proximity near the Museum Campus and South Loop neighborhood makes it very easy to find great restaurants whether you’re looking to dine for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Some are within walking distance of the home for the Chicago Bears while others are just shy of a mile but also offer complimentary parking.

For breakfast, try Manny’s Deli, an institution in Chicago, or Yolk in the South Loop. Kroll’s, an upscale neighborhood bar and near the field, offers Bears fans a pre-game breakfast (the Captain Crunch French toast is a favorite).

Nearby lunch options include The Scout Waterhouse + Kitchen, another comfortable and upscale bar with several flat-panel televisions lining the walls. The menu is loaded with anything you'd crave on game day from burgers, flatbread pizzas and foot-long sandwiches to an extensive beer selection including Two Brothers and Lagunitas.

About a mile west of Soldier Field are Tuscany in Little Italy and Greek Islands in Greektown. Closer to the fray is Gioco’s which also serves brunch on Sundays.

Even if your plans call for tailgating before the game, there are plenty of delicious opportunities to enjoy a nice dinner afterward. In addition to Gioco’s for dinner, The Chicago Firehouse and Zapatista are fan favorites.
