In order of importance to me here is the on-tap beer list that runs the gamut. I always find something interesting to try and enjoy. The service is above average for a place like this. I prefer to sit in the smaller (slightly quieter) bar area to the right as you walk in. The food is the usual stuff for... More

Was staying at a hotel near by. They came highly recommend by my daughter and her boyfriend. One of their favorite places. Was not disappointed. Had the Fish and chips, husband had a burger he could hardly finish it was so big. Will go back when in the area.

This is a super friendly and high energy place with very good food and beverages. The Nachos and and hamburgers are top notch, and the fries outstanding. Our server was super attentive. Also a plus is its close proximity to Six flags and the Gurnee Mills outlets.

My family and I eat at the restaurant after my son's Navy graduation. It was suggested after we asked for a good Burger place. We were not disappointed. I eat a turkey burger (loaded with onions, cheese, lettuce, tomatoe, and ketchup). Very well done! The Timmy Challenge is a must try. Not for the faint at heart!!!

Love this place. Best food in all of Gurnee and beyond..... The bar has any drink or beer you can think of and the bartenders are fabulous and friendly. Love to go there for games on TV - can't go wrong.

Great restaurant! We had a blast. Set up a lot like a sports bar but with a restaurant. Lots of TVs everywhere which can make the place a little loud but you can still have a conversation. Great place to eat with the family & children before it gets late, then I suggest moving to a more adult crowd. The... More

When we asked our hostess if we could set one booth over, before even sitting down, she wasn't happy. Our waitress disappeared for a while after serving our food and we only needed an extra napkin. We had to take one from another table. They do have gluten free buns and good food to go with it.

Thank lcrib
