Great Seafood And The Game?

Hi all,
I'm here in Chicago on business with my boss who likes to eat well but doesn't like stuffy atmospheres. Can anyone recommend a good place for seafood on Michigan (near The Peninsula/Westin) where we might be able to sit at a bar and watch football? Thanks! Budget around $75/pp.

    There are several excellent seafood restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk of your hotel. While they all have bars, I cannot tell you which would be good places to sit and watch the game. But here they are:

    Shaw's Crab House - www.shawscrabhouse.com
    GT Oyster & Fish - www.gtoyster.com
    Hugo's Frog Bar - www.hugosfrogbar.com

      Thanks NSX! That confirms some choices I had come across as being good options. Appreciate it!

      If football is a priority, you might want to consider Ditka's, which has decent seafood choices on its menu.

        Football isn't a terribly big priority, more of a hope, I'd say. It's a constant struggle to find a place that combines top-notch food with low-key atmosphere!

          We spend all day together so it's sometimes nice to have the TV distraction over dinner!
