We've gone to this local haunt for years. Always comes through when we need a place to bring guests. The beer flight is a winner and the choices revolve frequently so it's never repetitive. Hubby loves the amber and Scottish ale when available. The New...More

We went for lunch. THe chicken was very good. The mashed potatos were tasty, different than your run of the mile mashed. I enjoyed the grilled veggies very much

The size of this place is good which helps reduce wait times when in busy periods. Went here for a seminar and had steak which was good. Atmosphere for the restaurant wsa good and hard to tell on service due to the meeting.

The food is lackluster. If you are looking for good bar fare, you are much better off with the Tap House Grill.

Went looking for a restaurant specifically in Palatine. Took a chance, 25 minute wait, hostess offered water while waiting. Once seated, waitress was very attentive and food came in a reasonable time with how busy they were. If in the area, would go there again.

Our group had the slider trio and the fish tacos (with beer battered cod). All were excellent and the portions were big. Great service as well.

Yes, they are ok on the main level and an elevator to the lower level. Patio is also flat. Try them, you will enjoy the beer and food.
