Mid America Club
Please note the Club does not accept cash payments. Additionally, guests are invited to observe the Club dress code; business professional, or cocktail attire.
Beautiful setting. Limited menu wine list. Surprise, there’s a significant service charge added to your bill. You are advised this is not to be considered a tip or gratuity. Together the tip and service charge was almost $80 on a $200.00 meal.
The views were impeccable and the food was delicious as expected. Although, I would prefer that sides come with the steak since my husband’s potatoes came a little late. However, the service was great and everyone was apologetic. Would definitely love to go back!
My dads bday dinner and he felt very special. Everything was excellent
The food was terrible!!!!! It took us 2 hours to get the food and it tasted like it came from a nursing home.
Security was very rude to me and my group and took a very long time to let us in (~20-30 min with a reservation). Once we got into the restaurant, things were ok.
Mid America club is a great venue for good dining and spectacular views. The only caveat that I have is that they charge a special fee for access to the club if you are not a member. Other than that keep this venue in your "very special dining" category.
The view is amazing!
As an exec assistant I am regularly making dining reservations for my boss and also for myself. This time while making the reservation on the app I failed to change the name to her name. So I called to confirm that everything was good to go. I had never been spoken to so blatantly condescending for not putting it under her name. The person on the phone sounded exasperated and inconvenienced that I would do such a thing. Luckily my boss didn’t have any problems, but you can bet this will be the last time I make a reservation for this restaurant.
The Mid America Club is sure worthy of an encore on my Chicago trip! I'm always pleased with the quality of food and service here. Stunning view up there to boot. I will be back. 😇
I enjoyed so much the Mid American Club. This is my go-to place to dine when in Chicago. Awesome!
Private club, food was sub par for the price. Poor ambience and felt lie foodservice food. Played more like a lounge.
Great view though...
First, let me say that Christina was an excellent server. She gave us great advice and went above and beyond to make sure we got to experience all the best views of the city.
We were lucky enough to be there on a Friday night when they were featuring their filet and lobster tail combo for less than $40! This also came with salad, sides and dessert! I am a foodie, and we raise our own beef, so I have high expectations. However, for this price in Chicago, I wasn’t sure what we would get. They COMPLETELY EXCEEDED my expectations! There were four of us dining together and we all ordered the same thing. Every meal was perfectly cooked a beautiful meadium rare on the beef and the lobster was very flavorful. Another surprise was their pomegranate margarita. I do not care for tequila and usually don’t order a margarita. However, my daughter got this margarita and when I tried it I had to have one. It was probably one of the best cocktails I have ever had. I would go here just to have this margarita, and that is saying a lot for me.
I was surprised there were not more people dining here. We would ABSOLUTELY go again!
All was very very nice.
The occasion to visit Mid-America Club was a birthday celebration but at the same time an opportunity to offer birds eye views of Chicago to our European visitors. Mid-America didn't disappoint. Views were amazing, food was good, service fantastic - from the welcome desk to the wait staff. Christina was such a pleasure to work with. There was even live jazz band for a part of the evening.
This is not the first time we came to Mid-America Club, and definitely not the last time either.
Wonderful dining experience! Great city view from the 80th floor.
Half an hour to get to the building. Extremely poor, rude reception. Uninteresting interior and the view is open to only few tables.
1 of 5.
The server was so kind, food is great! Good environment, not crowded. I totally recommend more than dining in john hancock.
My wife and I dined here to celebrate our anniversary. It's a hidden gem as we had the main dining room to ourselves for most of our meal on a Friday night! However there are nights when they're booked for a private event. All of our courses were delicious but the Caesar salad stood out as one of the best we've ever had. The service was excellent and you can't beat the view from the 80th floor.
Thursday night they have a Vibe trio, which was a fantastic addition to the view and the otherwise occasion-ambiance. The staff was very pleasant, and the meal was paced as a good meal should be.
I’ll return here for business, or for special occasion, if ever I am in the neighborhood.
Great food! Great server (Jerry)! Views were awesome!
I would not recommend this restaurant as there are so many better options in Chicago
Food was average to below average. Service was very informal. Not a good dinning experience
Wonderful atmosphere with breathtaking views! Our server was attentive and helpful. We had theater tickets and the restaurant was able to rush our order without sacrificing any quality. The pricing is on the high side, but not unreasonable for the quality. OpenTable users may experience a little trouble getting badges at the security desk in the lobby, but that too was quickly resolved.
Opentable never explained that there were two types of restaurants at Mid America.
A pub and the other formal dining. It was not clear that I had an option.
Mid America sat us in the pub for our anniversary! They knew it as I specifically told them. It was not even busy.
The wait staff was adequate but not great by any stretch. The wine menu was taken from us without asking if we wanted any wine then we had to ask for it back to order.
I asked for an after dinner cocktail chilled and it was served warm. I then had to walk over to the bar and get it chilled. The place was almost empty.
Luckily we made the best of it.
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
DIDN'T WANT TO SEAT US BECAUSE IT WAS THE LAST RESERVATION OF THE NIGHT (LEFT US IN THE LOBBY HOPPING WE'D LEAVE), FOOD WAS BURNT/EXTREMELY OVERCOOKED, AND SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE (BUT THE VIEW WAS NICE).
RESTAURANT DIDN'T HAVE US ON THE SECURITY'S LIST IN THE DOWNSTAIR'S LOBBY. LOBBY CALLED SEVERAL TIMES WITHOUT ANSWER. I CALLED AND THE RESTAURANT ANSWERED & CONFIRMED WITH SECURITY. ONCE WE GOT UP TO THE RESTAURANT, WE WERE TOLD TO WAIT WHILE THE HOST CALLED THE MANAGER AS THE KITCHEN HAD ALREADY CLOSED AND STARTED CLEANING. AFTER WAITING AGAIN, I WALKED INSIDE THE RESTAURANT TO SEE THE HOST SOCIALIZING WITH A GROUP. AFTER 45 MINUTES THEY FINALLY SAID THEY WERE READY TO SEAT US. OUR RESERVATION WAS AT 8:30, WE FINALLY OFFERED AT 9:35pm. THE SERVICE WAS POOR, THE APPETIZER WAS BURNT, MY "MEDIUM RARE" SALMON WAS OVERCOOKED AND BROWN ON THE BOTTOM. WHAT A WASTE OF $150!!!!! THE HOST (WHO ALSO SERVED US ALONG WITH ANOTHER WAITER) ACKNOWLEDGED THE OVERCOOKED/BURNT FOOD BUT OFFERED NO REMEDY OTHER THAN THROWING AWAY THE APPETIZER & THEN RELUCTANTLY OFFERED TO RECOOK THE SALMON "IF SHE COULD CONVINCE THE COOK"...
I WILL SAY THAT THE BARTENDER WAS VERY NICE, SHE DESERVES TO BE WORKING ELSEWHERE... I THINK SHE'S THE ONLY REASON WE WERE EVENTUALLY SEATED FOR "DINNER".
For my Chicago vacation the Mid America Club was a twice must do venue. Soaring high views. Greeted with exceptional courtesy right from stepping off the elevator. Experienced a generous portion of Windy City fine quality cuisine. A turkey burger loaded with avocado. A sinfully delightful chocolate cake slice a la mode for the exclamation mark!
This is one happy vacationer!
The Mid America Club is a phenomenal dining experience. The one spot that makes my Chicago trip extraordinary. Ultra high rise views atop Aon Center. Generous servings of fine American cuisine. I was greeted warmly by the hostess for a fabulous first impression. There's NOTHING in my home state of Texas that's literally th high up!
Perfect burger, cocktails, and cake!
Though a Security check in and badge were required in the lobby and there's a dress code, the quick ride to the 80th floor took us to another world. Elegant, stunning view, attentive and friendly staff and great food. One feels special at the Mid-America Club. Everyone at our table was surprised at the quality of the experience and we can't wait to return. If you want fine dining in an intimate space where you can talk to you guests and feel "special", this is the place. Thank you for a great experience.
Nicest dining spot in Chicago. Has to be experienced to be believed... Don't miss out on this!
Everything was wonderful, from the initial greeting to the final farewell. Our table was lovely, fantastic views. The staff always addressed us by name, placecard set on the table, nice touches. Food was excellent, service superb. We regret not having more time to enjoy the experience and will definitely return when not on such a tight schedule.
Staff and quiet atmoshere made for a special occasion dinner before Wicked at Oriental theater.
Very quiet, staff were welcoming and encouraged us to walk around and see 80th floor views from all 4 directions.
Easy 3-4 block walk to theater afterwards.
Food was good, Flat bread and calamari appetizers were excellent!
Not rushed at all.
Great if you have guests and want to impress.
80th floor of the Aon Building, should have unbelievable views of city, unfortunately windows are so small and tables are so poorly spaced it seems that there is no view.
Long having searched for an opportunity to see the view from the Aon Tower, pleased to have found that the public is welcome at the restaurant in the Mid America Club on the 80th floor. Reservations and photo ID required for access to the building, hampered by an apparent lack of communication which caused a slight delay in our being admitted. Once past security, a gracious atmosphere on the 80th floor, spectacular views, very good food reasonably priced. Not a lot of people there for 7:00 on a Saturday night, apparently because information about the restaurant's not easy to find. Look forward to sharing this experience with friends.
We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The service was fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The personal service was attentive yet offered the privacy most people want. The food was excellent with some very tasty specials from the chef. The view was everything you would expect from the 80th floor and the restaurant has rooms that face all four points of the compass. The regular prices are at the upper end of the spectrum so some kind of deal is suggested for the average diner. I think we got our money's worth though...even have some nice leftovers. Bear in mind this is a private club but our deal included temporary membership for the restaurant.
Food was very good and the view was spectacular. We appreciated being seated right at the window for a view of the city. Service was perfect. All in all a wonderful, if pricey, meal.
This is a very elegant restaurant. I would have never known about it if it were not mentioned to me by someone I ride the train with. I will come back again. Everyone was very friendly. The food was great. I will recommend to friends and coworkers.
