Finally a chef run restaurants in Libertyville! Great all the way around, from drinks to small plates to outdoor patio seating. One request - BRING BACK the melted cheese to the menu!

My 16 year old wanted to go there for his birthday. Amazing food. Always good. Whether it's lunch with a friend, dinner with my husband, or fun with the family every meal has always been perfect.

Tried out as a business lunch with a friend and decided that rather than ordering entrees that we'd combine appetizers and sides to make a tapas meal. Small plates typically have two pieces. Each bite was wonderful. Wait staff was there when we needed and out of our hair the rest of the time. Sound level was perfect for intimate... More

545 North is my go-to restaurant in Libertyville. The food is consistently good. The service is friendly, but not overbearing, and the atmosphere is clean, comfortable, and conducive to talking.

Had dinner last night at 545 North. Split an order of grilled salmon and a portabello mushroom on pita. Both dishes we very good and ample portions. Located in historic Libertyville downtown restaurant district and stopped by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory next door for dessert.

Nice outdoor space but the indoor space is small. They will sometimes have music and the music is very good but again it is a small space. Food, great filet and nice chicken dish. They have a small menu but all the dishes are very good,

When I want to have a really great sit-down lunch in a pleasant atmosphere, I usually choose 545. Salads and sandwiches are always super fresh. I especially enjoy sitting on the back patio when the sun is shining. Last time we were here I had a salad with grilled salmon and my husband had a tuna sandwich. Both were excellent.... More

Patio is awesome. Sitting at the bar is also a great option. The bar tender is attentive and always remembers what we drink. Superb. I especially like the steak salad cooked medium rare, the Mahi Mahi Tacos, and the beef kabobs with blue cheese. There is live music often. The owners are warm, welcoming and accommodating. This is a great... More
