Family run, extensive menu and great service! A local institution with friends meeting and endless repeat customers are obvious. Owner is friendly and solicitous to each table. Reasonable prices top it off!

A great cozy place to go! Bar is small and crowded, always, but short wait on a busy night goes quickly. Food is always good!!

Although we love the food, the service and the ambiance of this little bar/ restaurant, the noise level was so loud and annoying, we couldn't talk and hear each other at our own table. We went on a Saturday night at 6:30. There wasn't a single party or table making noise, this was the general din of the restaurant. We... More

This restaurant and bar has been a Glenview treasure for years, and it's easy to understand why. The food is fantastic, as is the service. The menu is vast with excellent daily specials from steak and seafood entrees to burgers and salads. Of course, there is a full bar serving everything you could possibly want (treat yourself to the Godiva... More

Came here for dinner with friends. Ordered planked salmon (yummy), fried whitefish (also good), broasted chicken (a bit on the crisp side but quite moist). A bit crowded and noisy, but fun. Server friendly and enthusiastic, but not all that helpful about what was actually available. Didn't have to wait long, though.

We were welcomed like regulars even though we were first timers. Never before have I felt so welcomed. Our friends mixed up the venue and went to the Wilmette location but the manager and waitress were completely accommodating! food was good, too!

Love the cozy vibe. Nice bar but usually full. Food is and has always been great. I love to get as close to the FP as possible! :(

We have been here over the last 20 years on many occasions. It is our Neighborhood Comfortable go to place. A two level dining room ... a fireplace... and active bar scene. And a menu of fine, but not gourmet, choices. It favors the Greek side and the saganaki is always a nice start. Steaks and the chopped sirloin are... More

The food is very good and the service is just fine. However when it is busy it can feel very crowded and a bit noisy. Nothing wrong that that but if you are looking for a quiet meal better get here early.
