Six Friends on a Saturday night

Had been here previously, and was interested to return.....though the second time was a disappointment. Service was slow, and the food not worth the price. The "red fish" needs to go back to the kitchen and get reinvented, the salmon had better reviews. Would try another restaurant next time.

Fun atmosphere in downtown Libertyville. A small but diverse menu with a variety of solid offerings. Plenty of parking behind the restaurant.

My wife and I recently attended a customer appreciation night at Gregory Infiniti in Libertyville. At this event there were several local restaurants offering food. One of these restaurants was 545 North Bar & Grill. We tried their herbed polenta and braised pork shoulder, which were good. They are located in the heart of Libertyville.

if you want a truly delectable meal you need to visit 545. It has been around for a little over 5 years and the owners are fantastic. always generous with their time, donations to local high school sports teams, etc.

Food and drinks are top notch. But service is still highly marginal!!! Could do souch better. Management and ownership are terrible for letting this go on.

This restaurant feels like you are eating in the city. It has a small bar, great outside dining area with a fireplace, tables and booths inside. There is always and exciting energy and the food is very good. The tuna tartar, 545 salad, hanger steak and 545 martini make an excellent meal!

We have been eating at 545 since it opened. The drinks are hardy and the food always seems to hit the spot. Recently we had the tuna appetizer….great, as usual. We also had the salmon and 3 of the fish specials all were very tasty. Bread pudding for dessert could have used a little more sauce, but otherwise a generous... More

Great for a nicer lunch or dinner. Food is consistently very good, although service can be a bit slow sometimes, especially on the weekends. Outdoor patio is nice in the summer. There is plenty of free parking in the nearby public garage. Nice local atmosphere.

Food is very average but the prices are high . Ok service. Nothing special about this restaurant. Prices should be $2-$3 cheaper per entree.
