Chief's is a solid sports bar in Lake Forest. It's our "go to" spot for great food and solid beer choices. It's usually very busy when we are there, so that has to mean it's the place to be. A young local family owns it,...More
Chiefs really should be one of the "go to" places for families in Lake Forest but, unfortunately, the restaurant's food and service haven't lived up to the opportunity. The best you can say about the food is that it is average - although some swear...More
