So sorry to have to write this negative review. HOWEVER... Although I have been a fan of this place in this past, I must let everyone know you should definitely avoid this place going forward. Here's why: I arrived at 11:10 am for a lunch...appointment and secured a table on the patio due to COVID- concerns. I am over 60 and have underlying health issues (as does my health colleague). While there, we saw not one, but two people stroll into and stay inside the restaurant with attire that the restaurant specifically outlines on its website as off-limits (backward baseball caps, athletic wear, flip-flops, etc.). We asked the servers about it and they said, "Well, we ask people not to do that, but..." Ah, I see. You ASK people to do it, but you don't really enforce your rules. But it gets better. After this (mind you, we are in polo shirts and dress slacks) I am approached by restaurant personnel when we leave -- 4.5 hours after I arrived. "Sir, do you need an Uber? We're happy to call you a ride." "Um, I had 3 small drinks over 4.5 hours and you think I need a ride? SERIOUSLY? I was a breach baby when I was born, which causes me to walk funny (my feet pronate unlike other people's). Really? Is THAT what this is about?" "We show you had 4 drinks." "Um, my colleague accidentally knocked both our drinks over shortly after you served them, and you kindly replenished them. The reality is, I've had 3 drinks in 4.5 hours. Less than one drink per hour. And, I expect you to know that. And yet, you don't? SERIOUSLY?" (Do you see any typos in this post, which I am making immediately after I returned home from this incident? Does this post appear to be one made by someone who is meaningfully inebriated? I am 65, and have never had one DUI in my entire life). This is the same restaurant group that refused to allow their servers to wear protective masks, until those servers went berserk and social media demanded they be allowed to protect themselves. And the restaurant group eventually (under social media pressure) relented. I sort of overlooked that incident until today, Truly, this place is a nanny/authoritarian state. Wow, I cannot believe how I was treated and I STRONGLY encourage people to stay away from this place, given my treatment there. Sad but true. People strolling in, violating their web-site dress code, but I am treated like a law-violator when they are the ones who are unable to discern I had 3 drinks, in 4.5 hours rather than 4. WOW. Stay away!More

Located in Highland Park Village. It is a really good place for lunch. It’s location makes it upscale so be prepared for such in the pricing. They do take reservations but won’t seat you until your entire group is present. They have a full bar...but not really much space to wait. There is an outdoor patio with some seating for dining. Indoor tables are pleasant. The burger is really quite good.More

This place has it. Great food good location great drinks. Friendly staff enjoy the chicken sandwich. Not just any ordinary samwich. Like many of their dishes a twist and touch in the combinations that make them delicious. I can't tell you I. This review to...spoil it. Start your culinary adventure by ordering drinks. Move to the appetizer the. Go for the main. You won't be disappointed. The great thing is just about everythinhpg on the menu is good. I habe ran through most of it with friends and family on multiple visits. It's that good you WILL go back.More

Our friends have been here many times and brought us along this time. We were thrilled at the food and the service. They had shrimp Louie salad and we had the macho salad. Both were excellent.

The Honor Bar has an attractive outdoor patio with a large oak tree towering above and an attractive bar and dining area inside. There is a very nice upscale atmosphere, but you are paying for Highland Park Village when they charge $7 for a Miller...Lite and the cheapest wine to be found is $12. The guacamole with chips were good,as was the service,but due to the high prices for what you get, we probably wouldn't visit to often. It's one of those places where you can easily afford, but don't want to afford and wonder what their monthly rents are. I think a lot of the diners want to be seen frequenting the restaurant.More

Planned to go with friends to Honor Bar on Sunday for dinner. My husband and I got there early and sat at the inside bar so we could put our name on the list for dinner as no reservations are taken. We ordered a lovely...bottle of champagne at 630pm and proceeded to wait for our friends to arrive at 7pm. Not many people there so felt our 7pm meeting time would be fine and I was really looking forward to having a lovely meal since we had only had drinks there but no dinner. Our party arrived and the 5 of us were seated at 7pm so all was looking good. Then, when we started to order, Everything we ordered, was unavailable. They finally stated they were out of bread, shrimp, eggs and bacon. They did have bread but not the kind to be used on the pork sandwich and the shrimp they had was for shrimp cocktail. There was no flexibility or trying to make things work with food available. And, if they were so lacking in supplies, they should have informed us at first or not served dinner that night. Totally unacceptable in this level of restaurant. We paid our bar tab and left to walk across the street for a totally wonderful and memorable meal at another restaurant-Cafe Pacific. I was really looking forward to having dinner at Honor Bar but as the name implies-it a bar! The one star is for the bar chatter, bartenders and the champagne which we enjoyed. Lesson learned.More

If you have children you might want to avoid going to Honor Bar in Highland Park Village. We live walking distance to HPV and my wife loves taking our 14 month son to the village for lunch. All the restaurants in HPV are extremely kid...friendly and go over the top to accommodate them with the EXCEPTION of HONOR BAR!!!!! In fact Honor Bar and their managers go out of their way to make sure you know that your children are not wanted there. Just the other day my wife went there at 11:30 am asked if she could be seated on the patio. The extremely rude host " Susan " asked how many? My wife said 2 and a half. Susan asked what's the half?? My wife responded with my baby!!! Susan immediately said we don't have high chairs, my wife said that's not a problem he will sit in his stroller, Susan then proceeded to tell my wife it would be an hour and thirty min wait for a table when there were 3 open table on the patio and one person waiting in front of my wife. I wish this was the first time this has happened but it's not. This is the third occasions. My wife decided to go across the street to MiCocina who happily seated her and my son on the patio immediately!! I decided to go over to Honor bar to have a little discussion with this lady. When I approached her I asked if I could speak to her!! She responded in her crappy attitude voice and said ABOUT WHAT!!! Who do these people think they are. Do they not realize HPV is built on families ? I will never step foot in Horror Bar again ! Didn't know until yesterday that there are restaurants like HONOR BAR that DISCRIMINATE against women with babies!! I will be taking my business to MiCocina , Bistro 31, Union Pizza and Byrd Bakery's and I suggest any other parents with small children do the same and avoid the nasty people at Honor Bar!!More

Another birthday celebration! I love the outdoor seating as well as the interior of the restaurant. Unfortunately, our booth was at the end corner of the bar area, which I didn't really favor, and as a group of 6 ladies, it was a little tight...seating.The lunch food menu was fine, maybe a bit limited, but I loved my shrimp salad. The fries were top notch, but the chicken sandwiches, although big in size were somewhat oily. What mattered the most was that our birthday friend was happy! Our waitress was very personable. I would love to visit again for dinner to sit at the patio.More

Great patio in Highland Park Village. This little neighborhood gem enjoys good food, diverse wine list and great service. You must arrive early if you want patio seating as it’s small.

Honor Bar has never let us down on quality of food or service. Unfortunately, today must have been an off day for everyone except the kitchen staff. Service beginning with the host was unfriendly and unwelcoming. Table side water was the only beverage refilled, iced...tea was empty after the appetizer and never attended to. Waitstaff was generally unenthused and just efficient enough to bring food to the table when ready. At the end of the meal to go boxes were made but a bag was not provided until asked for. This is never the norm at this restaurant and very much unexpected. Food was outstanding as always.More
