I visited Wishbone Restaurant last week. It was a good day for me. It was lunch break and I decided to go and eat there. The food were good and their service was good too. I'll be back to eat there again.

The waitress LOST MY DEBIT card after she charged it and brought me a receipt to sign and no card. Said someone hit her arm and maybe it flew out...really?? They said, "sorry, we'll call you if we find it." Um, it's not an umbrella, it's

Wishbone is awful. We always have problems when we come here. The menu is bland and mediocre across the board. The dishes usually come cold and our orders are always mixed up or missing something. I'm writing this after just opening

We"ve loved this place (on Washington) since it first opened.... breakfast, lunch and dinner are all great. I can't even begin to pick out a favorite dish, but the veggie burgers are so good I eat them even though I'm not a vegetarian; I

I have never had a bad experience here (or the location on Lincoln). The black bean cakes, shrimp & grits, crunchy french toast...it's all wonderful. The martini's are yummy too (can't find them on the online menu but I'm pretty sure we

"southern-style" maybe if they're trying to copy a pretty ordinary restaurant serving bland food in the south. no major complaints about the place, the food just really isn't very good. would not go back, too many places in the city worth

I was looking for a place to take my friend for breakfast when he came up from U of Illinois. Since he was downtown, I couldn't take him to the lucky platter in evanston, which is also a very nice breakfast spot. So, through a RAINSTORM,

Pros: Affordable, Tasty, Eccentric

My wife and I came across this restaurant shortly after moving to Chicago, and after being here for 6 months, it has become a weekly staple for us! There is just no bad meal here! Breakfast, outstanding! Lunch, outstanding! Dinner,

This is by far one of the best comfort food southern cuisine treats in the city of Chicago. I have been dinning at the Wishbone for over 7 years and it is by far one of my favorite places to eat. The food especially the crawfish cakes

Extremely helpful waitress! We arrived with our 4 children for breakfast at 11am to find out it was no longer served. Cut off was 10:30am. We were disappointed but stayed for the lunch which was ok.

When I was a child, my mother worked as a waitress at Wishbone. Often she'd bring me home some of their delicious corn muffins. I've never forgotten the incredible taste of those muffins and they are my ultimate comfort food.

Biscuits tender, sawmill gravy white, salty, nice sausage. Mmmmm. At dinner, the veggie plates are pretty good, too, and the corn muffins rock. Oh yeah, and if you have an aversion to kids, don't spend much time at the Lincoln

Try the crab cakes, Jumpin Jack/John (something like that), and never leave the cornbrand standing on your plate, eat it, live it, and enjoy it.

I went there for Brunch last week, and it was great! It was crowded, but what do you expect for a Sunday brunch? Try the blackened catfish, however, the mimosas were a little weak. :)

Wishbone is a Chicago institution and it deserves every morsel of praise it gets. While I can't recommend it for dinner, it is a sure winner for breakfast and dinner. This is excellent Southern American comfort food. They do it all
