A pleasant surprise

My wife and I went for an early dinner yesterday. We couldn't find anything to complain about. We both ordered the Chicken Oscar. The presentation was outstanding, as well as the taste. The service was great. We will certainly be returning!

Went for an early dinner with family. On first entering the place smelled a little fusty, maybe it was just a wet day. Only one table was occupied and we were seated right next to them! The service was quick and friendly, but not one main person, at least 5 people served us at one time or another! The menu... More

Though known mainly for their dinners (and especially Tapas nights on Wed. and Thurs.) I visited with friends over lunch today. The lunch menu is slightly smaller but just as scrumptious. Three of us couldn't pass up the shrimp p and scallop lunch special with veggies, potato and soup. We all had the asparagus soup which was to die for.... More

Very good food and excellent service. We each ordered two apetizers so as to be able to sample more of their interesting food. Enjoyed all of them.

This is one of the best restaurants in Crystal Lake. Interesting menu for small town. We have eaten here several times and the food and service have always been excellent.

I love that this amazing spot is in Crystal Lake. Our little town is quite diverse and this fine spot is a great reflection of that. Warm and cozy atmosphere, delicious food. We always run into people we know here and we always enjoy our dinner choices. Tonight - the planked salmon. The chimichurri was such a great surprise that... More

Although I don't dine here often, maybe once or twice annually, the food presentation and taste is always five-star. The service is excellent, and the atmosphere very good. Of course for this quality you pay a bit more, but it is worth it. You gotta try the mushroom soup!

We celebrated New Year's Eve here and were delighted with our meal. Other than seafood, there is a genuine effort here to source locally. We had a superb duck dish and a wonderful Zinfandel recommended by one of the owners. Long time favorite of Crystal Lake residents. Highly recommended.

This restaurant has great service and an interesting menu. The menu changes daily depending on available wild game. They also serve tapas.They feature locally procured food and they have a good bar. Might be a little pricey but worth it. https://1776restaurant.com/menus/tapas.html https://1776restaurant.com/menus/dinner.html

I have never had a bad meal there, and their food is a lot better than most of the restaurants in Crystal Lake.
