About Palace Grill

The Palace Grill is a classic diner with stainless steel counters and tables, welcoming customers from all walks of life, and you just never know who is going to stop in. The restaurant has famously been visited by Oprah Winfrey, Mayor Daley, Al and Tipper Gore, the Russian Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin, countless TV/radio personalities and of course everyone’s favorite- the Chicago Blackhawks. The Blackhawks regularly pick up egg sandwiches aka “heart stoppers” before practice, and they even brought the Stanley Cup to the restaurant three times in 2010.

The Palace Grill restaurant is located at 1408 W. Madison St. Chicago, and has been serving good food at affordable prices for 75 years. Visit their website at or call them at (312) 226-9529.
