I ordered the triple filet medallions and the filets were thin and over cooked, staff never asked if it was done to my liking. Everything was fair and I won’t go back again.

For starters, warm bread. We elected the 4 oz filet with grilled shrimp entree. Tender & Tasty. Loved the sweet potato fries. We devoured the salad with blue cheese dressing (a little extra and worth it) followed by tasty lobster bisque soup. We finished meal...with coffee and the restaurant’s famous beignets. Terrific atmosphere and cute bar area if you want to stick around.More

A large group of friends held a fund raiser and lunch on a Saturday. Can't say enough about the food and service. We were well received by staff from the bar tender to the waitresses. Excellent turkey, mozzarella, pasta bake with grilled mixed veggies. Hot...fudge ice-cream sundae to top it off. I'll be back!More

When you’re in an unfamiliar area and are looking for dining options, you likely search various sites to choose a place. And, relying on user ratings is hit or miss. Fortunately, we found a great restaurant that exceeded their online ratings. If you’re ever on...the northwest side of Chicago, there’s a Schiller Park restaurant you must try. The Great Escape restaurant is outstanding in every respect. From Nicola’s greeting, to the last bite of our meals, everything was completely on point. The atmosphere was elegant, warm and inviting while the prices were surprisingly reasonable. The menu is extensive with a wide variety of items to choose from. Do not miss their yogurt citrus salad dressing, homemade in house. Maurine, our server, also made our dining experience even better attending promptly to all our needs. On rare occasions, you head out for dinner hoping for an enjoyable evening. The Great Escape delivered and then some. When we return to this area, The Great Escape will be a definite stop.More

Someone from the restaurant tried to charge me $10 an hour to charge my car. I'm glad I didn't go inside first, clearly going to be terrible service.

My wife ordered the two specialities of the house ribs an broasted chicken for a small party of six people. What a mistake. The skin of the chicken was like rubber bands and the meat was very tuff. Now the ribs good flavor but dry...like they were reheated. It was very embarrassing to feed guests this food. Nobody complained but you could see the look on their faces. Would not recommendMore

Our family has been there 3 times in the last 6 month. Each time we go there is no Prime Rib and does not accept holds any longer. We even have gone there earlier each time with a reservation. We have tried other menu items...with very disappointing results. I am surprise because Brian is really on point with the place. The foods has been cold and tasteless. The vegs were frozen not fresh and you can taste the difference. The Chicken and Ribs are not good at all either. The Chicken Pot Pie use to be the staple but they only fill 1/2 of the bowl and it not at the top as it has been previously. I not sure if you have a new cook. With inflation you would of expect better. I have spent over $350.00 eating here and hoped to get better but not and i was a waste of time and money. They were so busy that we could not complain because no one came back to the table. It use to be a great restaurant and I had many catering and parties there. I will not recommend this place nor will myself and my family come back for a long time. I also am a food critic as well and I have tried to see if it was a 1 time only experience but it was 3. Any reviews I see are regulars and friends. I guess I will be dinning and catering some where else. I have been a regular customer for over 25 years but no more. I suggest to look else where for a good hot meal.More

We arrived late at this restaurant but they were able to accommodate us thankfully after a long day of driving. I had the Tangerine Salad which was absolutely amazing. The other meals were Bison Burger and Onion Rings, Bruscetta and Corned Beef Sandwich. Everyone enjoyed...the food. Highly recommended.More

We went here to eat after discovering that our hotel restaurant was closed on M, T, & W!!! It ended up being our good fortune because we found this great place and it will be our go to place when flying O’Hare. I had the...Chicken Pot Pie and it is huge and delicious. I also had a side salad- excellent as well. My husband had a cup of lobster bisque which he enjoyed and a ribeye which he said was good. We also ordered the lemon gin and tonic special drinks for the day and they were great. Then, we took cheesecake and carrot cake with us for back in our room later- they were both excellent!! Make reservations- we got them with short notice and the place filled up while we we were there.More

We came here because the restaurant at our hotel was closed and we’re glad we did. The flatbread pizza was awesome and the bar area was really upbeat and friendly.
