    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.

    Came here on a whim for drinks and it ended up being the best decision! Great priced cocktails- especially when you get an entire pitcher of them! Will definitely be coming back the next time I am 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.

    Super cute atmosphere (the lighting is so nice!) and even better food. I highly recommend trying one of the many unique combinations that they offer for their pizza. We tried the Ed and the Nadene and they were delicious! Highly recommend this spot. Food was good, drinks were good, and our server was absolutely excellent. Not a single complaint other than I wish it was closer to my house in the suburbs! ;)

    Great food. Try the goat sticks and the Nadine pizza. Had group of 10. Too loud to visit with everyone from the group but it was fun. Not an ideal place if you want to sit down and be able to have conversations as a group.

    The food we really good, we got a few pizzas and a Cesar salad. However, they initially got our order wrong. I am allergic to nuts and the pizza they brought out had pesto on it, even though the menu did not say this. I had to ask before I ate it, and they ended up taking it back and having to make a new one correctly without the pesto. Then, we ordered beers and about halfway through them the waitress comes over with 2 new beers and says, “sorry, the beers you are drinking are actually wrong. Here’s the beer you asked for”. Again, the food was good but the service was not. And it was very $$ for pizza and beer. $120 for 3 pizzas, a salad, and 2 beers.

    Great food and atmosphere. Just kind of annoying that they had no printed menus so we had to use a QR code with our phones… nothing worse than having your phone out when at dinner with friends.

    Host ( 1lady) in the camper by the door (is not good with people). Made a reservation for the camper seating online but was seated at a regular table( sitting in the camper was the main reason for coming) waitstaff was amazing, food was amazing! Only issue was the female hosts in the camper upon entering and the reservation not being met! Customer service is key! Energy is powerful and if your having a bad day stay home!
