Excellent Grand Marnier brioche french toast, yum!!!! Simple brunch menu. It was a tough decision. Outdoor seating option. Wonderful, friendly staff as well. Will definitely go again.

If you want to experience good food from a tavern, this is the place to go. It's great for family too. They have different seating areas, where you can sit at a table with chairs, table with comfortable booth like seats or short tables with couches. They also have a man cave. The Chicken and Waffles are amazing.

My first time here, the snacks were good & couch seating very comfortable. Our waitress was there when needed and kept checking on us. I'll be back next I'm in Lombard area. Menu looked good. I had the meatloaf, very good...

Waitresses dress skimpy. Nice for the fellas. Food is average. Beer is awesome. Love the table side beer towers. Lots of choices.

I love this place and have eaten here on numerous occasions. Whether it be lunch or dinner, there food is very good. They have an outdoor covered porch so you can enjoy the summer weather, or a nice size interior that can accommodate a lot. I have to change up some of my food due to some allergies and if... More

I ate here once. There is a large crowd on a Friday night. It was disappointing to not be able to sit inside in a booth, but we were able to convince the hostess to give us the last table on the patio. It was somewhat chilly outside, but the patio heaters were functioning. However, I was able to hear... More

I have driven past this restaurant but had never stopped in. After reading the reviews some friends and I stopped. It was worth the stop. I had a great burger, friends had chicken tenders and another had chicken pot pie (average price for food and soft drinks about 15.00 a person). All the food was great! The service was wonderful....

I ate an early dinner here with a friend of mine recently and found it quite enjoyable. It's a great atmosphere for just a couple of friends hanging out or for large groups, and it's a nice, big place. I thought their drink menu was fantastic. They have a great beer selection, as well as several interesting (and decently-priced) specialty... More

We loved the comfortable seating with excellent views of the many televisions at this Tavern. There are a lot of good beverage choices including an extensive list of beers and some creative cocktail options. And, the food was pretty good too.
