Love it - always great

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Always a quality meal and good service. I've been there dozens of times and never been disappointed. They have homemade gelato that's wonderful.

The restaurant is huge but areas are separated so it doesn't feel crowed end. My husband and I lunched with several couples and single friends. The service was good, the food excellent and there was a wide choice of selections on the menu. We would return.

Attended this venue with one other couple on Saturday 3/7 at 5:30 pm. Private parties galore. Tried to reserve a Boccie Ball court and was given first available time at 11:30 even though most of the courts were empty and remained that way throughout our drinks and dinner in the bar. Plenty of screaming from kids "having a great time".... More

First time attending Pinstripes, and played Boccie Ball in the "outdoor courts", with the outdoor area enclosed with heavy-duty clear plastic walls. it was 10 degrees outside, but the enclosed area for "outdoor boccie courts" was a balmy 70 degrees. Check out the outdoor courts for a quieter experience. Our waiter/waitress brought out our food and drinks, so we ate... More

I attended a group luncheon here in one of their private rooms. Lunch was served family style and the waitresses continued to bring food if something ran low. They did a good job in serving the crowd of about 30. The food was good, but not spectacular. After lunch we had six bowling lanes reserved for our group and it... More

The Pinstripes in South Barrington is, by far, my son’s favorite place to bowl. And at only $5 per kid and parents bowl free (M-F from 10am-12pm) – it’s my favorite too! Pinstripes definitely isn’t your typical league-loaded bowling alley. Far from it, in fact. It’s one of the nicest bowling alleys I’ve been to. From the front desk to... More

This place has several features besides a restaurant. There are bocce courts, weekend blues , event rooms and bowling. It is nice and fairly clean although the restrooms can get out of control very quickly due to the HUGE presence of kids parties. We came here on a Saturday afternoon at 2. We did make a bowling lane reservation for... More

We went with a group to play Bocce ball and then stay for supper. The Bocce ball was great fun and the service staff was very attentive. Then we went into dinning room and that's when things were not as good. After we ordered and while waiting for our food several had to ask for drink refills and glasses of... More

Drove a hour to get here to find out you NEED reservations. They should probably tell you that online or over the phone when you call in so you dont waste your time. Was told its over 3 hours of a wait. Best part is itd be 11:30pm and theyd close at 12:30pm so then youd over pay for everything... More
