Always warm and inviting, great food, fantastic reasonable prices. Fish is always good, specials are seasonal, bread and soup is the best in town.

This is the closest you are going to get to a supper club outside of the north woods of Wisconsin. It's a comfortable fine dining experience. My wife had the pork tenderloin and I had the fish special. Both were reasonably priced and came with soup and a salad. We've lived in Elmhurst for almost 30 years and this was... More

We came here for lunch on a sunny day, so we sat out on the patio. The patio overlooks a beautiful little garden with flowers, a pond and ferns. Since we were only two of the few patrons in the place, there was only one waitress, but she was friendly and helpful.e This is not a German restaurant, which is... More

Surprising good restaurant in Elmhurst, IL. The decor is very authentic and service is impeccable. I would nonetheless expect a larger choice of beer for a German restaurant.

Our family enjoyed a Mother's Day brunch at this family-style restaurant. I could see coming back here for a normal Sunday, but it was late in the brunch and they were swamped. The food was good, homey, and the place was eccentric and old in a welcoming way - they just had too much business on their hands that day.... More

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
