I go to the Loop the last Saturday of every month with a large group of friends & acquaintances. We spend the whole evening there, chatting and playing games. The salads are terrific (and huge!), and the pizza is pretty good. Next visit, I'm trying a burger! One month, there was even live music in the upstairs patio area. The noise control is pretty good, though, because we couldn't hear the music downstairs at all. It was only when we were walking out to our cars that we got to hear a little bit. The only thing I can say needs improvement is the friendliness of the service, or I should say lack of.
Pros: portion size, taste, spacious, unlimited beverage refills
