Not that great

Honestly I never really like giving bad reviews but sometimes....well. This place is just okay. It is pricey which is fine if the food or service were really great which it's not. This first time we went it was with another couple and I would rate that experience as about a 3.5 so we gave it... read more

Have been here 3 times. It is a little pricey for us so we go on special occasions. Have never been disappointed by the service or food. Tracey was our server last night. Attentive and very knowledgeable. She made suggestions and explained some dishes. Like Kangaroo! Didn't know you could eat kangaroo. We did try the Gator bites for an... More

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
