The restaurant from outside does not reflect the beauty of the place upstairs. Food incredible, measure your spice well because they do serve spicy. Staff very fast to serve. Captain very attentive.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as
