Lunch b/4 a Hospital visit

With pizza in the title we might have gone to the pizza but a hamburger called my name and it was excellent! Large place with lots of seating close to Mchenry hospital.

Had dinner there Saturday and we were very impressed. We ordered a pasta dish with chicken and had them add some sausage and it was out of this world. Plenty for lunch the next day. Our waitress was just a pleasure to talk to and cut up with. We will be back.

I stayed at the Hampton Inn in McHenry and this restaurant is withing walking distance from the hotel. I sat at the bar where I was promptly greeted and served the most deliciuous chocolate martini. Since I was not very hungry, I went for an appetizer and a chopped salad. Both were served in a lighting speed and were fresh... More

A group of us met here for dinner and cocktails. A bit pricey for what you get. Typical menu, food was bland, does not live up to other Italian restaurants. Ambiance was good, drinks are well made, other than that, not a place to make a special stop and dine.

We ate here twice while staying at a nearby motel. Food was excellent and the staff was really helpful, even arranging a private eating area for eight of us to enjoy.

Stayed at the Hampton. Was suggested I eat here and it was great. Loved it. Ate here two nights in a row. Wish they had one of these near me at home.

Looking for a place with booths open on a Monday I selected Marzano's for a luncheon date with a friend - turned out to be a great choice. We both ordered one of their specials - chicken stuffed ravioli with a pesto sauce for $12. It was delicious. Our waitress was perfect - kept filling our water glasses but wasn't... More

For years, Dunhills was my family's favorite restaurant, and we were so disappointed when they closed and re-opened as Marzanos. However, we have been coming here lately, and they are pretty good. On Sundays, kids eat free, so that is great. We really like their porkchops, and their bread is excellent. They have good drink specials, the ambience is great,... More

First of all, when we went looking for the restaurant, we drove right by. There are no signs. Its not that we missed the signs. There are NO signs. The only way we had a suspicion we were in the right place is because it is situated right next to a Hampton Inn. From the outside, it looks like a... More
