The Great Escape Hauntings

A man in a black suit carrying a clip board walks into a closet and disappears, that feeling that someone is standing right next to you, walking through a very cold spot in a dark hallway, the sounds of 1920′s music forming from the basement after hours, an antique radio plays without being touched and upon investigation it’s determined that there were no wires hooked up to it and the old tubes inside were burned out.

Happy Customers

We love this place! Great family restaurant with awesome ribs and great breasted chicken. We come here a few times a year and love the old school decor and the friendly service. You must try the mustard crusted bass!   Nick P. Nice extensive gluten free menu. Large portions. Many “doggy bags” were taken home from party. I’d definitely return. Plus, the building is very historic and worth Googling. Good family vibe.     Lynn F. Was in Chicago for a conference, went with a decent sized group last minute. They were extremely accommodating, each staff member was more accommodating then the other. Are food and drinks where are fantastic. Not when we return nor one complaint. I highly suggest this restaurant.     Paula B.
