We enjoy eating and hanging out throughout the summer as they have one of the best outdoor seating and patio areas in the area. We tried stopping for drinks around 11pm on a Saturday night. We were ignored for about 15 minutes, when finally a server said she was not taking anymore tables and we needed to get our drinks... More

It was a really nice evening in a sportsbar, which is really close to some lakes. I guess during summertime even better, when you can seat outside. Lot of fingerfood-price/quality ratio absolutely great! For a nice evening absolutely recommended!

We were lucky enough to get a great tour of the lakes, which led us to The Snuggery. We docked right near the tables, and sat outside watching the boats on the river. It was awesome, and they had a special on vodka drinks, which we enjoyed very much, thank you. The food was great, nice and hot, and the... More

Waitress was great & food came out quickly. Only downside was the people who were smoking that night weren't considerate. We sat by the opening by the party house. They were making out & the guy had his hands down her backside of her pants & she was grabbing him. Otherwise our celebration of my husband, my sister & her... More

Was in town briefly for a visit with family, and we decided to eat here. Really glad we did! The place was spacious, clean, and had plenty of TVs! No way you can miss any Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs, and/or White Sox games all at the same time! Our waitress, Claire, was amazing. Was very warm and helpful. I can't... More

Beautiful Saturday evening on the river. We waited abut 10 minutes for a table, which wasn't bad. Great server, never pushed us and was attentive. Two had the prime rib special that was raved about. I had ribs which were very tender and delicious. Reasonable prices too.

If it wasn't for the outside eating area we wouldn't go here. I enjoy flavored teas and they removed the flavored Monin syrup from their choices. We also enjoyed having the burger sliders and yet removed from the menu. But i will put in here that Amanda that works the bar and Nina are two great ladies. Snuggery you need... More
