When you are inside you feel like you could be in a downtown Chicago restaurant - the atmosphere is great and food is delicious. We met friends for dinner, and we were not rushed through dinner, so we could really enjoy catching up. I would like to go back when warmer and take advantage of the patio and fireplaces.

Here's a hint at the atmosphere...The restrooms are labeled as horse stables. Yes, there is OTB behind the bar, however one would never know. This restaurant has a great, rustic feel. Enjoyed the large open pit fire place inside during the winter months. During the summer months dine outside on the patio with several fires places to keep you warm on those chilly nights. Food is fantastic and reasonably priced for what you are receiving. Chicago quality and diversity. They offer many specials featuring the chefs choice for the seasons. Average wine selection, however the MARTINIS are the best! They hand shake them at your table. Service is outstanding.

Great Restaurant. Pleasantly surprised. Food and drinks were great. Atmosphere was great. A little pricey but worth it.

My husband and I recently dined at the Turf Room. I would give 5 stars to service, atmosphere, and food quality. However we both thought the prices were quite pricey for N Aurora. The entree prices themselves were not too bad, but when you realized that none of the sides were included, it could really add up. Also we felt that the drink prices were much too expensive (beer $8.00, mixed drinks $11.00). Again I expect to pay the hefty prices in Chicago, not the suburbs, no matter how nice the restaurant. Also the drink prices are not listed on the menu, so you can be in for quite a shock once you get the bill. The restaurant is very rustic and dark with nice roaring fireplaces and smaller rooms for dining. The bar is very nice, however the high drink prices would prohibit many people from stopping for even an occassional drink (they do have daily drink specials however).

That said, we would return to the Turf Room, but only for a special occassion. If you are entertaining clients, then this would be an ideal place to bring people also since there is OTB in another room. Sadly several couples had to deline our invitation to dine due to the high prices. Also because of the fireplaces, the restaurant has a smokey smell, so if you are sensitive to smoke, this may not be the place for you.

Seated by the fireplace on a snowy evening in February. Good food, good service, and great atmosphere. Enjoyed a filet grilled perfectly, lobster bisque, goat salad, and Root Beer cookies & ice cream. Companion tried the Buffalo prime ribeye and pronounced it excellent. Also enjoyed a Pear salad, which was judged tasty and different. She followed the meal with the glazed strawberries for dessert. We both enjoyed the atmosphere and food along with the great service.
