My experience was ok. I didn't like that they don't provide any pictures of any strains. I understand it's Chicago so showing off any flowers for display could excite possible criminals, but at least provide an idea on how the flower looks and smells. So you really have to know what it is you want before you go and hope it's what you wanted. I'ma still go though.

Finally legalization let me go wait 2 and 1/2 hours to get into Midway dispensary only to buy a couple of pre-rolls wedding cake flowers which did not taste like marijuana at all did not smell like it if they call this cannabis then it must be the stems mixed with the leaves grind it up roll it up and rip them off also spent like an idiot on some edibles I bought two edibles ate one waited about an hour nothing waiting another half an hour still nothing two hours past I said the heck with this ate other one finally I felt a little tingle did not feel marijuana Buzz my friend bought two cartridges we were together he had his own pre-rolls I smoked my own did not feel nothing from them $40 down the drain the Edibles another $80 down the drain what a waste I can't believe that they are getting away with this the state needs to get in this and regulate what it is they are selling because I truly honestly believe after 30 years of being a pothead that what I smoke and Edibles are bogus I say stick to the source before legalization I know I am going to pick up the phone next time I want some pot call my plug

Great dispensary and now with there reservations it's even better with no waiting and very kind and quick service. There was only one small issue and that was with one of the security guards, stocky heavy set older guy with glasses. Very rude and setting a bad example for this business. If you can't be nice to the customers then don't work there. Other than that I give this place two thumbs up.

The best recreational experience. Menu is much larger than other places I've been. They're starting to limit things because of shortages which is understandable but even with that their menu is still bigger than the competition. And yes everything is "expensive" due to the tax which is out of their control but at least from my experience you'll still walk out of here with a lower bill compared to other spots. Lines go fairly fast here as well. My only complaint is that I wish they would post the rec menu online along with the medical one so people can plan ahead. I can't wait till the recreational side takes off in the coming years. This place will only get better that's for sure.

Decent product. Better than average prices. Good menu usually. As a medical patient I love it, if you're rec oh well lol. I'll say this, don't waste your time or money with rec taxes. It's not worth it, either get a card or shop on the street. And if you say the card costs too much, then so does dispensary weed at rec prices.

Tremendously friendly staff! Fast, no-fuss transactions, and a nice variety on the rec side from which to choose! Fantastic experience! Will be back!

The people are very friendly and helpful. They will answer questions you have, a lot has changed and this is not your grandpas marihuana anymore and advice comes in handy. No pressure, smiles all around. Security at the front door is personable and not at all intimidating. The selection is confusing but they will help you understand. Look forward to making it my place to go, enjoy, we have waited a long time (almost 50 years)

The staff is very friendly but you'll get different answers depending on the budtender you get. Know what questions you want to ask before you go. What kind of high to do you? How do you want to take it? FYI pre rolls are the same as the flower, it's just the shake. If you're new just go to the pre rolls, it's cheaper.

So I have been to this place three times. The first time I went here they was very friendly and let me know about their store. The only thing is they had only one flower product. Everything was sold out. I end up getting 3.5g of the flower they had and it was not good. I see why it was the only one left. The second time I went they was sold out of flower and I ended up getting some gummies and cream for my back pain. I was impressed with the products but mad they did not have any flower.The third time and final time I will ever go there was a few days ago. I was going to see if they had any flower. FINALLY they had 5 different flowers to choose from. I pick one with high THC. I was so happy. (Also got some more gummies) but when I came home and tried the flower out, I was disappointed. This flower was dry and looks like they get it from someone off the street. It did nothing for me. I tried to support this place because it's so close to my house and they are friendly, but they need to go and get a different supplier.

My first visit overall to Midway Dispensary was after my doctors appointment one day for the Application Assistance they offer (highly recommended seeing them for assistance!). My mother and I both needed to file applications so we made our way over. That was about a month ago and I wanted to save my review until my first visit as an actual patient. This place is amazing, and beautiful, and awesome. There is a great big sign so it's easy to see. 'Big' parking lot allows plenty of cars and you don't have to worry about a meter, or crossing the street. Very friendly atmosphere and clean as well. Very willing to help based on symptoms, or what you're in the mood for. Just their ability to make you feel comfortable and share their time is continually impressive. They have an very nice selection to choose from and a good variety of flower to vape pens and concentrates. Definitely recommend. Definitely will be back.

Had some issues when I first switched from my first dispensary mainly for distance reasons. Then I had a really big issue with them contacted them They called back the very next day and fixed the situation. They once made a mistake with my order too and compensated me greatly. They're growing on me a lot and close to my home. They've owned up to everything and I'm really happy. If you want some great prices and great customer service this just might be the dispensary for you!
Good product great customer service overall a very good experience. I have been to many dispensaries around the US and this one is one of my favorites.

Such a wonderful place to go for much needed help. I could not ask for a better experience. The team is quite knowledgeable and they are all about helping people. I got a very good vibe from all the people I met and talked to. If you need guidance in your pursuit of relief, this is the place to go.

It's expensive but it's medicine. Would find a new place if I lived nearer to one. Would like to see if MOCA has better products. Very new to this medical stuff, I'm just observing the change from medicinal into recreational over the next few months into 2020. My hope is prices will go down for medical when this change happens, or I'm going to be struggling. Though if you're only smoking flower, this place will be good for you. Edibles are the most expensive things on the menu for what you get from them. Gummies need more potency.
The prices here should be more criminal then growing the weed yourself. I can't believe people are paying this much $$$ for something that LITERALLY grows on a tree. Money doesn't grow on trees butin deed marijuana does. I wonder how much JB Pritzker personally makes off each transaction. I am sure some of the cronies from Madigans department showed him how to take advantage of tax payers and there money.

Went there 2 days ago at 5pm. Was passing by and saw the parking lot was near empty. Security guard would not let me in. Never once said I needed an appointment. Had no information on products or pricing. He said I could only get in if I was going to buy. He then asked if I would buy. I asked him how could I answer that if I did not know what products they had or their prices. He said he did not know. I asked what do the prices start at. He said $50. At this point, I'm frustrated and do not feel welcome. I'll take my business elsewhere

I'm truly disappointed with my visit today. I been going to this place for about 1year and some months. The staff has been great and they know me by name. I kinda wish they had name tags so I could know them by names. But today I go in scan all that jazz and go to the back to be seen. So lemme get the holy grail he writes holy grail on the bag puts bag through window bag comes outs he staples it up sends me on my way. But I get home and it's not what I ordered so I call. They like no refunds and exchanges but once the bag is open it can't be opened until u get which is the law. So how am I suppose to check? They offered 15% but two of your workers messed up my experience it's sad. Like the crazy part is I been tipping that's why I'm blown and that return policy prolly needs some adjusting. Especially when the worker is in the wrong!
I guess there's a reason all these recent reviews are 1 star. Unfortunately this dispo isn't amazing, and if you can i suggest driving a little farther for a different dispo. The staff is a hit or miss, some are nice and some don't care. The prices are just meh and the sales really aren't sales. I think the worst part is quality of items, i bought two prerolls only for both of them not to hit at all! I had to break the prerolls and put it in a bowl and even then it was difficult because they grind their weed fo dust. It was ground sooo fine the marijuana fell out of the joint through the filter :/ disappointed please don't waste your money here, especially on prerolls

The team at Midway Dispensary is just plain awesome. I've traveled to Chicago with my spouse several times during 2020 in an effort to mitigate harmful pharmaceuticals from my daily life. The team members at Midway have just been wonderful. They took time to listen to my goals and requirements explained what options should work best for me. Can't say enough good things about Midway Dispensary and their staff!

Fuck dispensaries. This shit is way overpriced. Haven't been ripped off that hard since I was a teenager... bud doesn't even have THC in it. Boycott all dispensaries in Chicago until they lower their prices to black market value and include THC, ya know the chemical everyone looks for in weed to get high... kind of the whole purpose of smoking cannabis.

The bud tenders at this dispensary are super friendly and extremely knowledgeable about their products. This was my first time at Midway and if I get a chance to come back to Chicago for a longer period of time I will definitely be a repeat consumer here. Also, the products I purchased were top notch. Thank you guys and keep up the great work. ?

Staff was very friendly. They had a great selection and no line in the morning.
Only complaint would be the atmosphere. I felt like I was walking into a government building. Like a secretary of state office that smelled like cannabis. Most dispensaries I have been to feel more like Apple stores. Not going to stop me from going but could use a nice rebranding.

I accidentally rated this place 4 stars. I meant to put 5 stars and they definitely deserve it. Not once have I had a rude employee or security guard. Everyone is welcoming and willing to take all the time needed to explain to you whatever your question was. I also like that nobody pushes for a tip. I give because they don't put that pressure on. Some days we just don't have enough. So a big Thank You for not making me feel like Randy from South Park where they make you feel really bad for not donating.

I hadn’t been to Midway in well over a year but recently renewed my medical card. It’s completely different and under new ownership. The store looks great with the new look. I was super pleased to see Ashley still there from the previous staff. . After so long she remembered me and greeted me with a huge smile and welcome back. She quickly got me updated and in n out in 10min. I drive a good distance to go here and will continue to because of employees like her! It was a relief to she handled it all no hassle to me. Thanks!

Such a helpful staff, great selection! I'm a lucky patient!
Update: Just like most acquisitions, when a company is bought out by some corporate guys, The culture gets inherently lamer and less connected with its customer base… I think it’s safe to say in the case of Ascend, who purchased Midway Dispensary recently, has already done so by removing my customer discount (despite spending up to a grand a month sometimes there) and senior disability discounts. Furthermore the practice of pushing your own product above all else is pretty lame if you ask me
