We visited BRU with a group of twelve people for my husband's birthday. He had been to BRU previously and really liked that they had Belgian sour beer on tap. BRU has a lot of different items on the menu. Although I didn't have it, the sausage sampler with homemade sauerkraut looked really good. I had the salmon and arugula... More

My friends and I went to Bru for food and drinks during a recent hockey play-off game. The atmosphere was great coupled with a bar tender who did an an outstanding job. Lake Forest has many options and this is one of the best.

Food not so great and over-priced. It was my first time and maybe i would give it another shot,maybe. Never had calamari like they served ,not good. I had Paella that did not have any zip to it,very flat,needed a more wet and spicy sauce.

This place has the best Tasty tater tots ever! The bru burger is very tasty and filling too. I have enjoyed their sausage trio with warm German potato salad and homemade sauerkraut. This place offers several interesting items on their menu.

This is the most disappointing restaurant I've ever been to. The food is bad, the service worse. I will never eat there again.

The Bru Burger is probably one of my favorite burgers and I recommend anyone in the area try it at least once! The menu is pretty diverse and everything has a somewhat unique concept to it. The seating and atmosphere at Bru is pretty top notch and you'll generally find great service. They offer two smaller outdoor seating areas as... More

Very good service and the food is good. I like the dining room. The bar has long tables and I am just not that social:) I am sure many people enjoy the atmosphere and for groups it would be great. The pretzel bread (with dipping sauces is yummy) Over all worth a try!

This is a great place to hang out with one or two people, or a crowd of 30 with large tables to accommodate all. Sunday afternoons to evening meals, or celebrations, you'll always feel welcome and have great food, excellent wine choices, desserts for any occasion. You can find lean food for the waist conscious to decadent wonderful entrees and... More

Bru is one of our go to restaurants in Lake Forest. Always great food, drinks and service. Perfect for dinner with the family or happy hour with the ladies. Brunch is fabulous, too! I've never been disappointed.
