Very reasonably priced breakfast. This is definitely NOT a greasy breakfast joint. The food is fresh and beautifully displayed. The atmosphere is wonderful. Many people come for lunch or dinner, but don't overlook a yummy fresh and very reasonably priced breakfast.

By far, one of the best places in the western suburbs. Atwater's in in the Herrington Hotel in Geneva, IL, on the waterfront and it is a charming hotel and restaurant. The food is exceptional and a wide variety to choose from.

No problem with food or service. Just a little off when they needed to accommodate my service guide dog. Once that issue was settled, no issues and dinner went smoothly as did breakfast in the same room the next morning.
