We found the cafe, set in a lovely place with a pond, outside seating (although full, we had to sit inside). My friend and I were seating by a lovely looking hostess, unfortunately, her personality didn't match. Our waitress seemed harried, rarely smiled. The food was average . . but $11.95 for a reuben?? The chicken rice soup bland. We stopped for a "bite to eat" . . . sure happy we weren't there for a special occasion, because I think we would have been disappointed.

We stopped here for lunch while exploring the shops in Long Grove - a close getaway day from Chicago. It is a lovely place in a lovely setting with windows overlooking a pond. The service is great. This is a Greek-influenced place, but with a variety of items on the lunch menu. The salads and entrees were delicious. A great place to stop and relax.

My wife and I had dinner here with some friends. We all ordered the all-you can eat fish fry. Although the fish was good, it was not the best fish fry in this area. It was a good value at $9.95 pp. We ate outside on the patio overlooking the pond that provided a very nice atmosphere. There were quite a few mosquitoes after it got dark. I am looking forward to trying some of the other items on their menu next time.

They have a great location in Long Grove. There are a lot of windows that overlook a lovely pond and a covered outdoor eating area. Typical "Greek" restaurant food, but well served.

This charming little restaurant that overlooks a picturesque little duck filled pond, with a delightful outdoor roof covered patio-deck, has the greatest specials every night, with prices that are so affordable, it doesn't pay to cook at home! From $10.00 Charcoal Grilled 12 oz NY Strip Steaks every Tuesday night, to all you can eat Friday night Fish Fry, to $19.95 Prime Rib on Saturday nights, you just can't beat the Long Grove Cafe! I'll leave a little unsaid, for to check out their specials for the other nights. The owner Bill's hospitality is complimented by his entire staff, from Mike the Bartender, to the waiters, waitresses and bus boys. Even their house wines are wonderful. And if you're a Scotch lover, their TOP SHELF Scotch selection can't be beat!
