Good Food - Slow Service

Had dinner on a Thursday night and sat at the main bar. Food was great, however, service was extremely slow. The two male bartenders working the main bar were more focused on talking to a few customers than waiting on the rest of the customers.

Good beer. Good crowd, but not overly crowded. Safe and little wait for a table. Decent prices and food.

If you like a loud lively place this is it. The loudness carries over I to the restaurant hard to have a good conversation. Food is just average and prices are high for what you get.

My husband and I were staying in Gurnee and we needed a place to watch the Packer game on a Sunday. The servers were really friendly and didn't seem to mind at all that we had parked ourselves at our table for a few hours. The Irish Nachos were really good, and my husband liked his burger.
