Chicago-Restaurant w/ a Great View
Can anyone suggest a restaurant with a great view whether it be of Chicago, Lake Michigan, or the Chicago River? If you could, please list name, location, type, price range, and restaurant specialties. Thanks so much.

I was going to suggest North Pond as well. Especially in the summer sitting outside.

I feel like such a repeat cause I recommend this all the time but we love the view! Even if you go for just a drink!

Soundings Restaurant at the John G. Shedd Aquarium for a spectacular 180 degree view from Lake Michigan to Michigan Avenue. Menu is surprisingly good, of moderate cost, and you do not need to pay the entrance fees into the Shedd with a restaurant reservation.
