My wife and I (late 30's - early 40's) visit four to five times a year. I would say this is a special occasion place for most but we feel Tallgrass is the special occasion! The staff is incredible and Tallgrass has the food to match. Some of our favorites include the homemade burrata, assortment plate, and when available, the... More

This is truly an unexpected treasure in an unlikely location. The quality of this food befits any downtown Chicago restaurant, and more. Superb service and an excellent wine list round out an exceptional experience.

Tallgrass is an exceptional find in Lockport. Parking is easy and the atmosphere inside is divine. The servers are all exceptionally trained and have all of the knowledge possible on the offerings for each evening. It's a great place for a double date or to celebrate an anniversary or promotion. It's a very quiet and dimly lit setting with few... More

Recently we celebrated a friend's birthday at the Tallgrass Restaurant and it was an elegant event in all respects. While the room was a bit crowded (we had over twenty guests) the venue was still outstanding. When you have a special event, and you're looking around for a classy place to hold it, Tallgrass should be in the consideration. Not... More

We were celebrating an anniversary and this restaurant was recommended to us. Although we haven't heard of this restaurant before (new to Lockport), we were very excited based on the menu and the reviews. We weren't disappointed. We entered the building on the 1st level, and the hostess was expecting us. She was very pleasant the whole evening, and did... More

we are Lockport residents and will be the first to say Tallgrass is not like anything else in town. But that is a good thing. The restraint itself has wonderful character. The food is some of the best I have ever had. My wife and I have been twice and my parents have been 4-5. This is a standard example... More

This is the pinnacle of restaurants in the Chicago area. It is actually a best kept secret hiding in the south suburb of Lockport. Outstanding food, service and ambiance. They have everything Charlie Trotter wished he had and never achieved. The closest similar place in the city is Tru. A great place well into the country to get there but... More
