The patio sits above the kitchen exhaust so sitting outside can be unpleasant. The people watching is great....the food is so average here. My husband loves the sweet potato fries....I usually only get a salad....it's nothing to write home about. I sit and day dream about eating across the street at Embe's while he enjoys his sweet potato fries.

Came in for drinks and an appetizer before the Ghost Tour. There was a loud, obnoxious group when we arrived. The staff did what they could to quiet the group. Once they left, the atmosphere was pleasant. Recommend as a good place for a drink.

Staying at the Desoto Hotel we arrived somewhat late and just decided to eat here. We had a choice and decided to stop in here for dinner. We were presently surprised as the food was very good! The Mac and Cheese was to die for. The Pulled Pork Quesadilla was just as phenomenal. Then we each had a burger, I... More

The Green Street Tavern is located just off the Desoto House lobby and offers a wide variety of lunch and dinner specials. The prices are not bad and the food is very filling and tasty. The tavern offers a good selection of drink options and do make an effort to try making drinks not on the menu. Worth a stop... More

We had lunch and we chose two different soups, an amazing salad and a sandwich. It might have been the best salad I ever ate. Baby spinach, strawberries, mandarin oranges, glazed nuts and a special vinaigrette dressing. The soup was Cream of Bleu Cheese. It was excellent. Just enough cheese, not so much as to overwhelm. Be sure to read... More

We had a nice lunch at Green Street Tavern. The food was decent and the atmosphere was super cozy. Definitely a great place to take a break from shopping on main street and enjoy the historic building.

Stopped in for lunch. Very good food, friendly service. A bit pricey. Located inside the oldest still running hotel in Illinois the Desoto Hotel. Nice to look around after eating.

Green street tavern is a great place to stop and have a drink and appetizer while shopping or to have lunch. We were guests at the DeSoto House Hotel so we found ourselves there on several occasions. We stopped when we wanted a quick bite to eat or a quick drink. The bartenders are well versed in making a variety... More
