I've been to Emerald loop several times and always been very pleased with the quality of the food. I had the pleasure of going with a large group one day and we all ordered something different and sampled each others plates. The must tries at this place are: The Chicken and Goat cheese salad - sounds simple enough but everything is in perfect balance in this salad at EL and the raspberry dressing is the perfect accompaniment. Also, the Corned Beef is AMAZING. I think it's slow roasted in Guinness or something like that... it's fabulous. This place is definitely worth checking out - and you can enjoy a variety of games on their multitude of TV's. 5 stars for EL.
Quality Seafood with a Broad Selection is NOT Inexpensive, BUT Whatever you order, Be sure you try the french fries! Fresh cut, clean cooking oil, and help yourself bottles of Heinz ketchup bring back teenage memories of just "hanging out" after school!! All that's missing is soda fountain Green Rivers, fresh banana malts, and a juke box!!! Last visit the catfish tasted muddy according to my southside expert guest, but the fresh shrimp and other 15+ varieties of seafood have never disappointed before. Of course, always ask if it's fresh or frozen to maximize satisfaction.
One word awwwwsome. I was invite for dinner & a drinks for a pre-birthday.i figure I will in and out quick. I wa s suprised. Food was great, service awesome place amasing. Bistro is french decor that is unbelievable than you go to lounge and you transfered to total different mood with laser and led lights leather seating and music thar put you in the mood to party and that we did. I DEFINITELY WILL BE BACK. thanks Susan for inviting us and Nouveau bistro for the great time.
Had the best experience it was 20 people with us for a graduation party an they made its feel at home the manager Tara was great she made sure everything was perfect for the occasion an get helpful servers was great so when you get ready to eat there make sure your servers are L.A loni, an keshia toys was the best so when you want red lobster go to 5201 s. Pulaski you will be treated rite.
If you're looking for GOOD FOOD, quickservice and a friendly staff, treat yourself to DJ's Seafood & More.We've only been there once but it definitely won't be our last time. The Jumbo shrimp ARE Jumbo! The catfish melts in your mouth and the wings are fried just right, the Seafood salad is great. We're not sure what's in the pie, all we can say is UMMMMM! ENJOY we sure did !
Everything was great. Our waiter was Rosemary and she was very attentive and took care of us before we knew we needed it. The meal was pricey, but worth it. Te seats are a bit close together, but that didnt take anything from our enjoyment. One lady at the next table was oblivious to anyone else and was a bit obnoxious, but that wasn't the restaurants fault. Highly recommended
if you love steak and seafood and don't mind spending a bit of money for satisfying your taste buds, you will love this restaurant. their entree are good but i was especially impressed with their lobster bisque soup which you can only get on fridays. top waiters and waitresses with great service. overall, a great restaurant. the only downside might be the prices.
I was very impressed! The food was delicious and fresh. The shrimp were a decent size and the batter used was not that disgusting breaded batter that takes away from the taste of the actual shrimp. Their fries were really crispy. They were very tasty and quite different from the typical french fry. I will definitely return to try other items from their menu!
This place is sophisticated, laid back, and a great place for a terrific after dinner (or before dinner) martini.. also a great place to go after hours when you want a light snack and a drink (not too late, they close fairly early some nights) A good place to take out-of-towners who want a taste of "Real Chicago" too.
This restaurant has such a great concept. I had never seen a seafood restaurant set up as a fast food restaurant. you walk in choose your shrimp or fish, choose your option for cooking and, its all made fresh to order. Their breaded jumbo shrimp and diablos are delicious!!! definitely worth trying.
