This restaurant is a hidden gem in Chicago. If you want your wedding guests to have the best wedding experience ever, this is your venue. There is something for all of your guests to enjoy: great views of the river and city (boat watching is such a blast!), 2 full bars (outside and inside) with a large variety of beers, outdoor and/or indoor seating depending on weather, and AMAZING food! Our guests are still raving about how it’s the best food they have ever eaten, and not just at a wedding! The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Ashley and Dan were so great to work with and my Husband and I feel so fortunate to have had the most memorable experience of our lives, thanks in part to them. We absolutely LOVE this venue and would recommend it in a heartbeat to anyone looking to host their wedding here. We and our guests all agree that you will not be disappointed.

We could not have picked a better place for a Chicago city wedding. All the staff at Rivers helped make the day absolutely perfect. The view of the city was beautiful, food was amazing, and staff were well organized. We had so many compliments from guests on the venue. I would definitely recommend Rivers to anyone planning a city wedding,

We hosted our August wedding reception at Rivers and it was amazing! I cannot say enough good things about the atmosphere, food, staff, etc. We heard multiple times from our guests how great the food was. We also did a late night snack which was a huge hit! We had about ~190 guests and the outside patio hosted everyone perfectly for dinner. We migrated inside after dinner where our band was set-up. I was a bit nervous about the space fitting a band and all of our guests, but it worked out perfectly! Overall, it was a great fit for our wedding and would recommend it to other brides in Chicago!
Rivers is always a pleasure to work with and their planner Taylor makes everything an easy and enjoyable process. With one of our favorite Chicago venue locations along the river, Rivers has a beautiful night view perfect for any wedding or reception. Rivers is also very vendor friendly with an extremely easy load in and flexible setup times. With their great staff, amazing planner, and beautiful location; Rivers is one of our preferred venues in Chicago and we could not recommend them enough.
