Food was disappointing. I ordered the salmon. It was dry, lacked flavor n tasted really fishy... fried pickles were not satisfying either. would recommend only for drinks.

You can’t take offense-the staff are geared to be rude. Just sit back, enjoy the entertainment and the rest will be easy.

I have heard such great things about this restaurant. But our experience was horrible. Our waiter was the worst I’ve ever had. I will definitely go back to try it again in another city . Bummed!!!

Tiara was our server and she was soooooo funny! Unfortunately her phone fell out of her pocket and the screen shattered but she didn’t cry (like I would have done) and she continued to serve us and make the most hysterical hats for us. We had a great time. Thanks Tiara!

Yes but not as a novelty. Our waiter was excellent and appropriately made fun of us. I have no clue how he was able to find the right captions for everyone.

Could not talk to table mates due to loud music. Where were the bullhorns? I expected meaner waiters but ours was sweet.

I was at a Dick's Last Resort in San Diego a few years ago. When I noticed there was one beside my hotel, I knew I had to experience this place again. I convinced my travel partners to go and they loved it as well. Good Job! Lots of fun!!

The server John was funny but we expected more creativity in our "hats". We come to Dick's to be harrassed and insulted, but it was only mild. I decreased the tip from 50% to 40% because of this. The food was okay, not the usual Dick's standards.

We had a blast. It’s important you understand this place is about having fun. They put hats on your head with inappropriate sayings and various things to tease you all in good fun but if you don’t have a sense of humor it’s not the place for you. The food is surprisingly really good considering the type of place it is. It’s right on the Chicago River so the view is nice. The staff was awesome we had a lot of fun and a great meal

Was told to go there as they treat you rudely in a good way from the time you walk in the door till you leave. That didn't happen, received a paper hat with a saying by the server. Food was just ok, but expensive

Our hostess wasn’t rude at all, which typically would be a good thing. 😉. Maybe it’s because I had a kid with me.

It was fun but super confusing at the beginning. We had a reservation for 4:45pm on a Saturday. Was told they don't have menus, that we had to order off of a giant paper menu stuck to the wall and was very limited options. Not at all what shows online. We weren't given an appetizer menu until we asked. Very little "rudeness" or fun interaction with our server which was another reason we went and were disappointed. Food was ok, not what we had planned to order. Expensive and because of the menu fiasco, we'd never go back for dinner. Even doubtful we'd go back for lunch.

I know this isnt supposed to be a typical dining experience but when you find a hair in your food you would expect that the MANAGER would break out of his awkward-if-anything character. Rather than continuing his overthought out "rude" character, that wasnt witty or helpful at all.

We all (3 of us) stopped eating half way through because of the hair and the manager just looked at us and asked if we were done eating before he took our plates and handed us the check.

As usual, this restaurant did everything as expected. Great food, just rude enough service, and extreme entertainment. Would recommend.
