    Highly suggest the bouncers get some common sense training. NEVER tell a woman she needs to smile more. So tacky and classless

    I got the pulled pork skillet and the portion was small, not particularly hot and looked like everything was assembled separately as opposed to being cooked together as a skillet usually is.

    We were a group of 6. We had gone to the Monet immersive exhibit with my daughter and teenaged grandsons I requested to sit in the camper which was fun. Our waiter Colin was great. We had cheese bread as an appetizer, it was very good. Wells street Salad was excellent. We all ordered different individual pizzas. Also great, surprised they were baked in a regular pizza oven and not wood or coal fired the crust was so good Definitely will be back

    Haven’t been to this location since I lived in Chicago. I was worried it might have changed or the quality might have gone down within the last 5 years. It exceeded my expectations and the food was just as delicious! Still some of my favorite pizza in Chicago.

    The staff was incredibly rude and did not explain the policies very well at all. They then harassed us as we tried to figure out other dinner plans on the public sidewalk.

    We went to Happy Camper with a group of 10 on a very busy night, but that did not stop great service and delicious food! We all had a couple drinks, split some pizzas, and it all came out to a very reasonable price! Hight recommend if you are looking for fun energy, yummy food, and all around good vibes.
