Fun arcade with food and alcohol. Parents can hang out in the nice bar are as kids roam around you. We didn't eat but lots of people were and it all looked good. We stopped in while waiting for our dinner reservations down the street.

We went here on Thanksgiving night after dinner so it was not very crowded. There are a lot of fun games (our favorite was the 4 player air hockey) and they also serve adult beverages. 😄. I️ would go back again!

We had a work event here and rented out the arcade. Everyone loved it! Also had mini golf. The food was good and there was a ton of it. The staff was nice and accommodating. In a good location. Highly recommended.

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
