patio cafe

Voted “Best Outdoor Dining” by Chicago Scene Magazine, Tavern’s outdoor patio cafe is “the” place to see and be seen when looking for al fresco dining in downtown Chicago.

The spacious patio, which is equipped with flatscreen HD televisions, is perfect for catching a few rays on a sunny afternoon over your lunch hour or for dining with friends on a beautiful summer evening.

Dining al fresco style allows our guests to enjoying the sights and sounds of lively Rush Street, while dining on USDA Prime steaks and chops, seafood, burgers, pizzas, pastas, unique daily specials and more prepared by Executive Chef John Gatsos.


Due to the popularity of our outdoor patio, we do not accept reservations for the patio & all tables are reserved for full lunch/dinner service only.
