Established in 1988, Lakeview Baseball Club was the first of the rooftop clubs and is the only private rooftop. There are three levels of space that were recently remodeled in 2009 including a climate controlled club room, accommodations for a 100 outdoor bleacher seats on 2 different levels that provide amazing views of Wrigley Field, two open bars, full catering services and a friendly staff that is dedicated to making your rooftop trip a one of a kind experience.

Reason I'm giving only a four star rating for the facility is because they don't have any TV screens nor speakers installed, unlike the rooftops left and right of this one. Personally, I can easily live without the speakers, but I sure would be nice to have the screens to see close up and replays.
Other than that, there's nothing bad at all to say about the facility. The bar/restaurant has actually a very "inviting" flair to it.

The food would deserve a five star rating if it wasn't for the potato salad. To my taste, that salad was so bad it kinda spoiled the overall enjoyment of the otherwise excellent food.

Across-the-board it was a very pleasant experience and the owners could easily turn it into a near perfect experience by addressing the few aforementioned negative points.

I went with a small group on a less crowded day. Due to the limited number of people, only the second floor was open. Drink options were limited to Coors Light, Heineken, and red & white wine. The food was great and quick to get. The food was served in a semi-buffet style with the main items like rib sandwiches and hotdogs being provided by a server. There weren't any specialty items but who eats fancy watching a Cubs game? Smoking is allowed outside and I caught whiffs of a good cigar almost the entire game. I smoke cigars once or twice a year myself so i didn't really bug me. The inside bar area was very nice and appeared to be well maintained. On the rooftop "bleacher" seats, the seats are fold-up style, I didn't see any bench seating. However, there other places below to stand/sit and watch the game. There is a bar right below the rooftop seats but it was closed when I went so each trip for beer was kind of cumbersome as there were a lot of stairs. It was only a problem because there was a one beer per person rule. Otherwise, it’s not any different than getting your own drink while sitting in the bleachers in the stadium. The rooftop section seems notably smaller than its neighbors who appear to be capable of supporting twice this one's capacity. But they had bench style seating which, can be a plus or minus depending on your preference. The view from the rooftop is great. It’s not much different there than sitting in the outfield stadium bleachers. There were plenty of restrooms with no lines at all. It was also nice not having to fight through a crowd of people getting back to the car at the end of the game. The overall atmosphere was nice and value was definitely there if you chose to eat and drink your fill. This place is priced a lot more fair than others, however, this was my first time on a rooftop so I have no basis for comparison on the value. I would recommend this spot for small to medium groups or maybe a company event that books them full. Also, it seems like a nice place to take a date if you're looking for a good deal. I might go again sometime but either way I enjoyed the atmosphere and the entire setup this place had going'. If you haven't done it, try it. If you have done it, do it again dummy, this place is awesome!

Side Note:

Park at the Devry campus for $6 a vehicle and free shuttle tickets (to Wrigley and back) are included. This seems to be the best way to go as far as parking unless you're on a motorcycle.
