Limited Dine-in Reservations and Walk-in Tables Available!

Both locations are open for limited dining in. Tables may be reserved online. If you're nearby without a reservation, we have tables available for walk-ins, on a first come basis. As you probably know, restaurants are still facing capacity restrictions so we’re limiting our tables to keep everyone socially distanced. Please read the safety guidelines on our booking page before making your reservation. We’re very excited to see you guys again! Virtual hugs!

Please read our safety FAQs so that we may all be as safe as possible under the circumstances.

  • Reservations

    Our Lakeview location is taking limited reservations for dine-in.

    Book your The Chicago Diner – Lakeview reservation on Resy

    Starting April 13, we re-opened our Lakeview location for limited dine-in reservations. As you probably know, restaurants are still facing capacity restrictions so we’re using Resy to manage our open seats and keep everyone socially distanced. Please read the safety guidelines on our booking page before making your reservation. It’s been over a year since we’ve had dine-in service so we’re taking things slowly by only opening Lakeview at this time. We’re very excited to see you guys again! Virtual hugs!
