"First time dinning at Howells & Hood. The atmosphere had a great, hip vibe. Open concept with separate spaces to enjoy happy hour or dinning.
I selected this restaurant for the menu. Offered a wide verity of options at a reasonable price point.
Food was delicious. Prepared just as we ordered it.
Our waitress was delightful and helpful.
I would recommend this location.

"Good food and service. Should work on the acoustics. It is crazy loud and it wasn't busy enough at the hour we were there to warrant the noise level.
That said, we'd still go back.

"We had a great experience here! The service was fast, pleasant, and accurate. The food was GREAT. I had the pastrami ruben...delicious! My friend LOVED her burger. We would definitely be back, especially to sit outside. The patio looked AMAZING, it was just a bit too cold that day for us."

"Went for dinner on a Friday night. Might have been less noisy at lunchtime. Vast beer and drink list. Food was very good. But the noise level was very highly, and ambiance wasn't anything special that would make me come back."

"The mussels were awesome. The Old Fashioneds were even better. And our waiter took the prize.
Great customer service from booking the reservation to ensuring our satisfaction. I have a number of allergies, and the staff handled with care and accommodated everything I needed.
Loud, but fun atmosphere. Not a place to go for a cozy, intimate experience."

"The salad was almost an entree-sized salad, and I ended up taking half my pulled chicken torta home. The first two items were great - perfectly poached egg on the salad, and really good fries with the sandwich. Mango dessert was light and refreshing, but I probably wouldn't order it off the regular menu. Still, for a $22 prix fixe, it was A LOT of food. Really great beer menu too. I will definitely be back."

"I went here for lunch during the workday. Was seated immediately outside in a booth. Overall experience was good. I ordered the Fish and Chips and my friend ordered the Howells & Hood Burger.
My food was great but my friend ordered the burger medium well and when she received it, it was a little too pink for her liking.
Our server was nice but was not very attentive, took him longer than usual to greet us and get drink orders.
I would go back again for the same purpose. The patio is nice and big to enjoy in the warmer months."

"6 items ordered and one was good, even the easy Cheeseburger which they are known for had a charred flavor on the outside and no flavor at all for the burger. Very disappointed with this restaurant on Michigan Ave. Ordered Steak as well and maybe a 3 out of 10 on taste and flavor for a NY Strip."

"Our reservation was for 8 and your staff was able to accommodate 11 of our staff members. Thank you for this.
Unfortunately, one of our staff members got food poisoning and could not attend Day 2 of our business meeting in Chicago."

"I was looking for a place to watch the games and try a few beers and this place delivered on both accounts. THe food was great as well but the diversity of the beer list is what will keep me coming back whenever I am in Chicago."

"Nicely located and nice ambience, the menu is extensive and interesting but the food is actually the best part. Service was poor, upon ordering we had to wait for our dishes for about 45 minutes and when it finally arrived it was rather warm."

"Have been to Howells and Hood many times- one of the best restaurants in downtown Chicago. Food is always good, friendly staff, and that beautiful patio makes it even more special in the summer. Always a great time here."

"Given all the choice that there for food, I would not recommend this restaurant. Went there with five friend for dinner. Service was extremely slow despite what seemed to be a large number of servers working. The food was okay, but you would get better food at a chain like Applebee's . Choose somewhere else."
