More than 25 varieties of cereal with free second and third helpings. Blackboard fresh-catch tilapia specials. Huge salads (no iceberg lettuce here). Bananas Foster apple pancakes. Any place with such a varied menu is going to have some hits and misses. But the salads, grilled sandwiches and enormous omelettes, all made with fresh veggies and no greasy-spoon feel, are what keep us (and Mayor Rahm, who counts this among one of his favorites) coming back.

Glenn's is one of the best places for brunch that I can think of - especially during the warmer months when you can enjoy your meal out on their sidewalk patio! They serve killer Bloody Mary's complete with skewers of shrimp cocktail and an Old Bay rim, and bottomless bowls of all your favorite childhood cereals! Today, we had the Crabcake Benedict which was perfectly prepared with a light, creamy Hollandaise sauce that was delicious. Lunch and dinner offer great options here as well, with dozens of chalkboard choices for fresh fish and seafood dishes, as well as some steaks and chops. I give it 4 out of 5 stars because the service can be inconsistent here, although out visit today was fine. We've also had reservations here before that got messed up somehow and erased - we then had to scramble to find another place to go at the last minute.
