Deep Dish Near Navy Pier

Deep dish pizza is a Chicago staple. If you've never had it or if you gobbled some down just last Friday, there's never a bad time for some classic Chicago pie. If you're kids say they don't want pizza, they may be aliens. We'd suggest either calling the FBI or changing their minds with one of these Chicago restaurants near Navy Pier.

  • Giordano's: Not many places serves up a pie quite like Giordano's in Chicago. The deep dishes will fill you after only a couple slices. These guys come stuffed with your meaty favorites...and you can get veggies if you really want to.

  • Frankie's Fifth Floor Pizzeria: The wood fire, brick oven pies at Frankie's Fifth Floor Pizzeria are some of the best in Chicago. This is another mall restaurant, but don't let that fool you. These thin crust pies are serious. And so is Frankie's garlic bread. And for those who have already had too much Chicago style pizza, Frankie's also has soups and a nice appetizer menu, which you can get deals on during happy hour!
