Great Apps, Delicious Salad

On a quiet Tuesday me and a friend met at 545 for dinner. Upon arrival the hostess was friendly, sat us quickly (it wasn't crowded), and our server quickly approached us with menus and water and we were off. The menu wasn't the same as what the website showed so instead of hangar steak that they... read more

So so food served in a press setting. I wasn't impressed at all. Had the Classic Burger and it is decent - but there are better burgers nearby. Companion had the 1/2 Chicken and pronounced it "tasty" and would order again worthy. Food seems expensive for the quality of what you get. Might give them another try, but I doubt... More

Sorry you weren't 100% satisfied with your meal at our restaurant. Should you return, I'd like to suggest you try our Tuna Tartare, Bacon Wrapped Scallops or Mini Pork Tostadas--all are packed with unique flavors and some of our most popular dishes. Our Reuben sandwich featuring our housemade Corned Beef is the best in Libertyville. Thanks for your feedback, we... More

The food is outstanding and lunch is priced just right. The martini's are spectacular. Ask for the specials!

Thought this would be more of a gastropub-bistro type of restaurant. It's a bar for older adults that also serves food. The menu isn't terribly interesting and it is pricey. I got a steak salad that was very good but my husband got the salmon and that is all it was. One piece of fish. All the sides, unless you... More

The food is prepared beautifully and is quite tasteful, but be sure to ask the server about portion size. I was able to share a meal of wild-caught salmon with brussels sprouts and lemon kale with my daughter. However, my husband ordered the bacon-wrapped scallops and received 2 scallops. They were definitely large scallops, and presented beautifully on the plate,... More

The bar scene is where it is happening as opposed to the kitchen - drinks over food at this place for sure

We don't come here often but when we do the food is always good. Only thing is I wish they would change up or add to the menu selection. If its a nice evening I highly recommend the patio

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.
