Description: You don't have to travel far to be swept away in an atmosphere of casual fun and waterfront dining. The Ground Round at River's Edge, set on the banks of the Fox River, offers great food and great fun with spectacular panoramic views. In addition to our waterfront dining, the Ground Round at River's Edge provides an atmosphere and menu that is inviting to families and fun for adults too. We are one of the few family oriented restaurants where adults can enjoy full liquor service with their meals. Our lounge is a casual alternative where adults can relax, meet friends, watch the game, and enjoy the same full service menu.

Although the food was ordinary, the service was attentive and fast.
Had lunch on the river veranda and it was quite sunny and there were few umbrellas available. Evening ate in the bar. Nice atmosphere with piped in music. Service again was good.

Thank ChristieAK

I was at the hotel for a conference and ate at the Ground Round twice and had drinks there 3 evenings. The food was very good, I had the Carribien beef tips and a burger. The beef tips were very good and i would definately order them again. The burger was a special after 9pm when you got a burger and fries for $3.99. It was also a large burger and the size surprised me. It tasted very good and was cooked just as I ordered it. They had a different special going every night and had a good sized crowd each night.
The service was very good and the staff was very friendly.
There is a patio that looks onto the Fox River and it was nice sitting out there each night having a drink and watching the boats.
I'll definetly be going back.

Came once before for lunch, food was great (love the pretzel bun & patio!!!)& service was ok (They had just opened). Was excited to go tonight again, couldn't shut up about the pretzel bun! We loved the atmosphere but the service was terrible. Food was rang in wrong...no pretzel bun for us
:( We didn't have the burgers remade but they were alright for BOGO price. The overall service was just weird. Multiple people brought our stuff out, there was confusion about the drinks we ordered, our bill was wrong...we couldn't believe it. The staff seem overwhelmed & under trained. Really hope it improves :(

Thank you for your feedback from your previous visit. We do employ food and drink runners due to the size of our property, so that may be why you saw numerous individuals assisting in delivering your food and drinks. I do want to point out though that the issues with accuracy and training are things that have since, and will continue to be addressed with our staff. Thank you very much for the feedback, we hope to see you in again for our weekly "Buy one Burger, Get 1 Free" promotion on Tuesdays.

Menu has been improved and the happy hour specials are great! Servers help you move from the patio to inside if it starts to rain. Manager very helpful if you have any concerns. Breakfast has a lot of staff on hand to clear tables and keep food replenished. Very good partnership between GR and hotel.

My wife and I were excited to stop down on our date night. We were greeted and seated in a corner booth by the bar. Our waitress came over and introduced herself then took our drink order. We waited 15 minutes for our drinks that we thought would never come. We joked about having to order another round right away to ensure they would make just as we were finishing our current ones. We skipped appetizers and went straight to dinner. Our burgers were tasteless and oozed of grease. Needless to say, we did not finish them. We flagged down our waitress and asked for the bill immediately. She asked if we enjoyed our food and were reluctant to respond as we had nothing nice to say. We paid and walked a few blocks to a restaurant we knew we'd enjoy and finished our night there. We will not be returning. We were looking forward to dining on the patio but seems like we couldn't even have drinks on the patio and enjoy it. Good luck to this place.
