Grassroots Grill (fka Deleece)
The service was great and OMG, the brussel sprouts were THE best I have ever had!!!!!
Great atmosphere! The service and food were outstanding! A great place for a special event.
Great service and food ! Enjoyed the experience a lot.
I've been to Grassroots before and this was near the top of my list when I realized I'd be having Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant this year. Thank you for giving us a cozy spot to celebrate with a great holiday meal.
We absolutely love this place and try to go everytime we see at show at the Mercury Theatre or a movie at the Music Box. The Buffalo Cauliflower will make you believe you can be a vegetarian.
Lovely restaurant, good food, service adequate and a good dining experience
Food was outstanding. Very fresh and well prepared.
We had a party of 8 and the staff was wonderful. Our server Val did a great job. Food was great!
Awesome place to eat, great food, great service! Exceeded our expectations
We had a great experience. Even when there was an issue with the pancakes, they brought out some beneigts. The staff was wonderful.
It's a great place to go before theater or movie next door...and I will go back, but I found the service to be VERY slow this time, and, when I requested a roll or some bread to go with my salmon, I was brought a piece of rye bread (not classy but ok....fine) and THEN charged $1.00 for the bread. That was pitiful....and I was not warned about it....a decent restaurant that should be above such a cheap charge.
The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The food was delicious, and portions a good size. I would have been more then happy just having the Brussel sprouts for dinner - yum!!
Steak was amazing. Very tender. Best Moscow mule I’ve had ever. Salad and soup incredible
We came here because of the proximity to the Mercury Theater but I think we will be back. The food was very good. Our waiter, Jake, provided menu assistance that proved on the mark and our party of four enjoyed the walleye and the salmon. All in all, I would definitely recommend Grassroots Grill whether your plans include the theater, or not!
Very much enjoyed our time. We were sold on a nice steak of which seemed just a bit tough. But everything else was delightful.
Service was outstanding. Extremely knowledgable wait staff. Interesting twists on old standbys. Great place to go before or after movie or theater next door.
It was a good neighborhood eatery
The food is great. The drinks are great. The service was outstanding. This is our new favorite family restaurant.
Beignets are excellent at brunch. And don't miss the tuna tacos. Iced tea is made from Lipton bags, a big no-no at this level of dining. Dessert list a bit disappointing.
The food is always great at Grassroots. They use a lot of local food, so it's a good sustainable choice. They have a specialty drink which goes with the current show at the Mercury Theater next door. Service was quick and attentive.
Great service and the food once again was perfectly prepared. The walleye was crisp and fresh and the salmon was prepared spot on. Given a lot of competition around their location, we will be returning soon. A great gem.
The space is beautiful! Unfortunately service was very slow. For a table of 5, our entrees came out one by one and the hollandaise sauce on my friend’s eggs benedict was cold and the consistency of mayonnaise. The rest of our food was good but didn’t make the wait worthwhile. It was also my birthday and our server was kind enough to bring us a delicious brownie cheesecake which was the highlight of our time there.
Took my daughter and her boyfriend for dinner before a concert at Wrigley Field. I ordered Salmon and black rice as did her boyfriend. It was very good! Done perfectly and presentation was very nice. Daughter ordered Macaroni and Cheese. She says it was the best she ever had. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Great location easy walk to Wrigley Field. Highly recommend.
This is the 3rd time we've dined at Grassroots Grill and each time we've been pleased! First time was a large group, 2nd a small, and 3rd just the two of us, but food and service have been excellent regardless of the # of diners. It's a perfect place for dining before or after a theater event, or for just a relaxing meal with friends. Their menu is limited and changes with what's in season, which makes each dish delicious! Their cocktails are also different and delightful. You can tell they put much thought into making it a dining experience without being outrageously expensive. I highly recommend Grassroots Grill!
Went there for pike, it was over cooked as well as veggies
Open table gave it 4 stars, not even close
Attentive service and delicious chicken dinner. In combination, a lovely evening!
One of my neighborhood treasures !
The Cobb salad was excellent. Very fresh tomatoes, fresh leafy greens, crisp onions, avocado, crunchy bacon and a perfectly hard boiled egg, plus the added steak was perfectly cooked. I’d highly recommend this dish to anyone looking for a healthy option. My friend seemed to enjoy her Mac and cheese as well.
Our waitress was great! Made sure we had a great experience
Good food friendly staff...,I highly recommend this restaurant.
An excellent place for brunch! Enjoyed the food very much. Great service too!
Our meals were fantastic! Three of the four of us had our server's recommendation, salmon with black rice, and it was every bit as good as she promised. The fourth in our group had her second recommendation, the tuna, and he said it was excellent. Great appetizers, good selection of beverages. Nice space inside but we enjoyed outside seating this time. Perfect place for a good meal, relaxing night out with friends. Highly recommend Grassroots Grill!
For convenience only if they are going to the Mercury Theater.
Our first time to visit Grassroots Grill we were delighted! We had an amazing pan-seared Walleye as well as the Carmelized Salmon and loved the black rice served with it. We ate dinner at the bar and the bartender who served us was really good - attentive and well-informed about the food as well as the cocktails. Will definitely return!
Being adjacent to the Mercury Theater and Venus Cabaret makes Grassroots a perfect place for dinner and/or drinks before a show. The service is friendly, informative, not pretentious. I always feel welcome. This is my usual dining place before a show at one of the theaters I mentioned, and the staff always remembers and acknowledges me. The cocktails are delicious. The wine list is delicious. The food is delicious.
Food is generally better than it was the last time we went. The pizza I had had too much flour on the underside of the crust. Server forgot our last round of drinks and dessert which was comped on the bill once we received them so that was good for the customer service. Overall would still go back but everything is just above average.
The brisket was hard and stringy and two pancakes were $15! We didn’t have a terrible experience but was hoping for better on Father’s Day.
Really sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. We smoked the brisket eight hours, sounds like you must have gotten more of the seared skin of the brisket then soft moist interior meat. Our apologies our cooks should have been watching more carefully, Please try us again, we get a lot of five stars reviews. Grassroots
It was nice but they brought our entrees out right after we received out appetizer and drinks. The whole table was covered with food getting cold. 😬
We were pleasantly surprised to find such a wonderful restaurant next to the Musicbox. We were in a rush to eat before seeing a movie and found the waitress most helpful in serving us in a prompt fashion. We had a late Sunday meal which was tasty and filling. I throughly recommend the Philly cheese steak breakfast sandwich!
Everything was excellent from start to finish! Ambiance, service, food all amazing!
