My mom and I went to use an Amazon Local Voucher and were sad to see the restaurant was closed. I called the owner and a week later got a call back saying she would honor our expired voucher, as the day we went was the last day, if we used it soon. A month later we went to use... More

Martini's on Main has become my favorite dinner location in the Chicago suburbs. It is little known and small, so you get to know the people there easily. Friendly servers, great food and atmosphere. They are always coming up with new cocktails, which is fun. It is relatively expensive, but I definitely plan on returning to Martini's!

I went once with my husband and was not impressed so I thought I would give it another chance. I took a friend who was visiting from Australia. The place is so crowded. You are seated on top of each other. The food is okay but not worth the price. I can get better atmosphere at Bonefish for the price... More

Walked in during regular business hours to the bar, after being ignored for about 15 mins, told they were open but not ready. It was approximately 5:30PM on a Friday. OK............. After about another 10 mins someone finally took my drink order, and about 10 mins after that I finally got a glass of wine and a menu. I placed... More

Best drinks around and the food is also delicious and if you want to try something different than the usual steak or chicken, this is the place to go. They have it all and the authentic dishes that they create which are also fantastic!

Great place, very quaint and cozy. Traditional atmosphere in small and intimate setting around a classic pub style bar. Excellent food...one of the best rib eye steaks I've ever had! Perfectly done and I had the grilled asparagus and baked potato sides that were also excellent.

I love traveling, because sometimes you find yourself in just the quaintest of places. Martini's on Main is just that sort of eatery, with excellent food and drinks. We ordered a dry martini with a lemon wedge and a Manhattan (which most places do not know how to mix well), which were both a delight. Then dinner was just excellent!... More

Both myself and my date had a martini off the specials, one pineapple, one raspberry; both were great. Not too sweet on either (which I was worried about). The soup of the day, portabello mushroom and lobster bisque, was packed with lobster meat and was not too heavy, although it was not as thick as I am used to for... More

Excellent food with generous portions. Orange Julius Martini's are a must to try. A nice neighborhood restaurant atmosphere with very friendly and helpful staff.
