About Us

Situated on the iconic Chicago River with stunning views of downtown, River Roast is a lively social house and gathering place.

The menu features contemporary American tavern fare with dramatic presentations of whole roasted chicken, whole roasted fish, and slow roasted beef – all carved table-side. The food is handcrafted, yet rustic, with many plates designed for sharing. The bar offers a large selection of local beer, craft cocktails, beer, and wine. With one of the best patios in Chicago, River Roast is a great place to enjoy dining outside on a hot summer afternoon or a crisp fall evening.

River Roast Private Events offers six spaces, all with spectacular views, for parties from 10 to 1,000.
