I visited quite a few places in the Chicagoland area and these service charges and taxes on top of what the pricing is seem to be all around the same everywhere…which can really add up quick!  I actually ended up going a little beyond the Chicagoland area for our reception venue and was able to find something better suited for us.

Our venue is 22% service charge and tax is 10.25% for downtown Chicago.  Seems pretty standard at all the other venues we considered as well.

@baletrina:  That is our tax and gratuity charge as well.  It seems insane, doesn’t it?
