Review of The Kennison

1800 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60614

Overall Rating


I LOVE The Kennison! I have been coming here for years with numerous dietary restrictions. They take it very seriously and consult with the chef every time, even if they know something is possible, just to make sure! They have a gluten free bread option which is delicious with any of their brunch items or burgers, and they have many other naturally gluten free foods on their menu. They always explain what is safe and what could have potential cross contamination on the menu (like the fries), so I don’t have to stress out. The food and drinks are delicious, upscale and reasonably priced. You cannot beat the atmosphere or service either. They also have a great happy hour M-F 5-6:30pm. Love this place!
