Very good food.

The service was fantastic and the waiter was the best. Varied menu and it was hard to make a decision. The Wildcat Catch sandwich was so delicious. Freshest of white fish.

I've been here before and the food is ok, typical hotel breakfast and lunch fare. Nothing fancy, but average. Today, admittedly was a slow day, but one would think that would make the service all the more attentive. A large conference on the ninth floor may have been diverting attention away from the regular breakfast service. At any rate, I... More

After two months of remodeling the Hotel Orrington is about to re-open the Globe as a new restaurant called the eTown Bistro. A grand opening and new menu will be unveiled. I have eaten in the new restaurant three times. It is more spacious, lighter, and has a totally different feel to it. That staff are really excited for the... More

We stopped in at the Hotel Orrington hoping for a nice lunch - what a mistake. We should have known when there was no one else there that we should leave. The ambiance was bad - the tables and chairs were like something from an old worn out diner. There were two televisions going as well as annoying music. And... More

Unlike most hotels, breakfast and lunch at the Globe Cafe is reasonably priced. On the weekends they have a buffet that includes an omelette station.

The Globe may not want to be considered a hotel bar, but it is attached to the Hilton. I visited only for a drink to try something different than the lobby bar inside the Hilton. The bartender was pleasant but not overbearing and it was a nice relaxing way to spend a late Saturday afternoon before dinner.

I usually eat at the Globe once a week. The food is superior. This restaurant and bar are hidden away in the Hilton Orrington Hotel in Evanston. It is quiet, relaxing, has a very good menu, and has great service. It you want a really healthy meal order the large house salad with a chicken breast. It is an excellent... More

I had an excellent breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, 2 slices of grilled ham, home fries, and English muffin. Cost was only $9.00. Great quality and taste for a very low price. Most unusual for a Hilton.

Whenever we come to Evanston, we almost always eat at the Globe at least once if not more. We like the menu and love the ambiance. The outdoor tables in the warmer weather are a must.
