There is that place you go where you feel comfortable, welcome, and like you can really relax and unwind. Mack's is that place for our family. We've been going here regularly for 16 years - hubby always gets fish fry, I always get another fish dish. There is always enough food -and it is tasty. Both of our sons like... More

The Golden Pheasant has a comfortable, homey, pleasantly cluttered interior that makes it feel like a family (not chain) restaurant. The decor is Old World, German: tapestries on the walls; wooden furniture; a fire place; paintings of European villages; a display of butterflies in a case. Whichever way you turn, there's something to look at. The back of the restaurant... More

Haven't been here in years! Love this place! Food is amazing and being a Sunday brunch buffet was even better!! Everything from typical breakfast items to specialty foods! The buffet was huge! So much to choose from! The dessert table had so much and they changed to different things every time I went back up! Met up with friends and... More

Over the years I have been here several times and had always enjoyed the Eastern European flavors very much. This evening my wife and I went there and had a mediocre experience. On the positive side, the wait staff were very friendly and accommodating, the French onion and chicken dumpling soups were very good and the salads were fresh with... More

I have been here two times previously for family dinners, and have enjoyed it a lot. My wife and I were here for a late lunch today; and my comment was that it's a good thing that I don't live nearby, or I would be here all of the time! The atmosphere is old world international, and (of particular interest... More

The fish fry on Fridays is very good especially the crispy fish. I have heard the duck is very good too. The view by the window is very peaceful....we had a large birthday party for my mom there and the staff was wonderful. Everyone liked their food and it was a great place for a large group.

The oldest continuously family owned restaurant in DuPage County... This is my favorite place in the world!! The same family has owned and operated it since 1948. One of the few remaining upscale Supper Clubs, and it comes with all the history of an institution that has been around since the Truman Administration, starting with it's trademark sign! This place... More

Like a menu page out of history. Feels like a 1950's/60's themed supper club- a little cheezy but charming at the same time. Really good battered and fried mushrooms. Burgers were solid. Menu ranges from Bohemian to American to even a really good Cuban sandwich- showed a nice crossover use of well roasted pork. A tad pricey for lunch, but... More

I took my family here for Sunday brunch/Oktoberfest to celebrate my mother's birthday. We were very disappointed. We called ahead because she is in a wheelchair, and they said they had a ramp in back for use. The ramp led through absolute filth piled up against the back door of the restaurant. The server was very nice, and the food... More
