Going to the Parkside Pub for over 30 years. The food has always been exceptional. Great outside dining during the summer. My favorite is the jumbo shrimp and the barbecue ribs. It has been a summer meeting place for me For a long time.

Great food in a great setting with helpful servers made us feel very comfortable. Friday night fish on several occasions was excellent. Special drink is the Wisconsin Brandy Old Fashioned which is made in the original style. Variety of food selections on the menu met everyone's tastes. Food very tasty with pleasing flavors.

I have never had to wait long for service or food at Parkside. The Voodoo shrimp is amazing and the menu varied. You won't be sorry!

Great place, no pretence. I visited with my family and partner local family member knew the place to be an easy-going restaurant that could cater for teenagers and grandparents alike. Good hearty sandwiches and pitchers of cheap beer - what's not to like?

The beers are very good and cold. Deep fried shrimp is excellent, and the burgers are good. Chicken wings have too much breading. We come here often.

Went here with family, with one toddler, around 12:30 pm on a Sunday, after visiting the Illinois Railroad Museum. The restaurant was not busy at all, but nice and cool, though a little dark and narrow. We went in to ask if we could re-arrange some tables in their outside beer garden/court. (There is an entrance directly off the street.)... More

This pub in located on the downtown Huntley square. Employees and service was very friendly. During the warmer months, there is an outside dinning area and bar. Not sure if every Friday there is a Fish Boil, but it was offered the night we went. We chose the regular fish and chips. Fish was good...light batter and tender flaky fish... More

Despite a motorcycle gang being in the main bar for our first trip, we had a great experience eating outdoors in their garden area. Surprisingly great food, excellent service, reasonable prices. The atmosphere is definitely a typical bar atmosphere, hence the lack of a star to make it 5 stars.

Not much to say that hasn't been said. Great local bar that is also family friendly (if you go early enough). Great food, good service. Sit outside on a nice night and you won't be disappointed. Hit up their Turkey Testicle Festival in fall. Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like and it's a great time.

Thank Jason B
