Martinis!!

Excellent service. Actually had three servers checking in constantly to make sure we had enough food and kept our drinks filled. Tried all the flavors of the martinis… grape is the best! :-D Karaoke night was fun.

this is a step above your normal sports bar. The location is right across from Great America in Gurnee, Il. The service is outstanding and the food both in quality and quanity is above average. We do not live close to the location however, when we have a reason to go up from Chicago we make every effort to eat... More

Maple Bourbon dressing makes anything takes great! Meat just fell off the baby back ribs. And lots of salads to chose from. Only downside is high noise level, even in restaurant side.

The bar is the best. Fast service for food and drink with plenly of conversation. The mussels are super, especially with the garlic bread for sopping up the juice. It's not the typical hard rounds but nice, crunchy wedges perfectly seasoned. Lettuce for salad is fresh, chili is as expected. A truely good bar experience. Kid friendly, especially with balloon...

Stopped here not knowing what to expect. Glad I did. Staff was cheerful and prompt. Chose the meatloaf. WOW! Don't tell my mom, but this place has her beat. Extensive beer selection (sadly didn't get to sample as I was working.) If I'm ever in the area again, I will return. Thanks for such a great experience!
