Great back patio - especially when they have music out there. They have great Rueben Sandwiches - one of the best I've ever eaten. Two of my favorite menu items are the shrimp taco appetizers and the beef skewers. Great drinks and the restaurant and bar area inside are cozy and comfortable. You can't go wrong here!

So decided to take my fiancé here on "date" night. I choose it because I had never been and it looked interesting. Also they were advertising an Elton John tribute guy at 9:30pm. We had reservations for 8:30pm dinner and were welcomed and brought to our table right away. Our waiter was great, and his opinions were welcome on an... More

Stopped in for lunch and wasn't disappointed! The decor was standard everything dark wood. The food was good. It was served hot and they gave me extra bacon on my BLT. I feel I need to return for dinner for further review.

Have had some very good meals at 545. They have good specials and a nice atmosphere. I had an excellent tilapia there that had a wonderful sauce.

545 North is restaurant/bar in the heart of Libertyville that "is perfect" for people who would rather be personable and reasonable than perfect. Through the years, a friend of mine who owns a 4 Points Sheraton but often comes to visit and hang out at 545, has muttered that staff in his hotel restaurant wouldn't be allowed to dress, talk...

My wife and I eat lunch or dinner here 2 or 3 times a week. The sandwiches are very good, BLT and Rueben are particularly good. Skate wing, salmon and steaks are also very good. The service is usually pretty good especially when Megs is behind the bar. The patio is great when weather permits. All in all a very... More

had dinner here with some work colleagues. We were seated close to the door which was unfortunately because it was only about 5 degrees outside. It wasn't that pleasant every time to door opened. The menu had a good selection but the meal itself wasn't particularly interesting. Good place to stop for a drink but I'd try somewhere else to... More

Contemporary decor, cool bar, good atmosphere. Sometimes a hiccup with service, and the room is small but I like the place and it generally has a very positive vibe.

My friend and I waited over 15 minutes before anybody acknowledged we were even at the table. Water was not re-filled throughout our dinner and no one came by to see how we were doing. We even needed to place another order to go but we had to request the hostess to have our waiter come back to back to... More

A nice little gem in downtown Libertville. Clean and comfortable and tasty food offerings. I recommend the steak salad (generous portion), the BLT and the Reuben sandwich. Go and enjoy!
