Discover a true Chicago gem at The Great Escape. This casual favorite features some of the city's finest steaks, seafood, chops and more in a setting that captures the Windy City's unique history. The Great Escape hails back to 1889; the Bar and Banquet room are part of the original structure. The bar itself was hand-carved by the venerated Chicago Bar Company.

No stranger to colorful characters, The Great Escape was once frequented by one of Chicago's most notorious icons, bootlegger and gangster Al Capone. Today, the restaurant is a family favorite, featuring hearty fare, with an onsite banquet hall and catering. The facility is uniquely green, with a 108kW wind turbine on the property that generates over 100 percent of the restaurant's power supply, ensuring that future generations can continue to experience its warmth, hospitality and delicious creations.
