Driving to southwest suburban Lockport to have dinner at Tallgrass is like dining at the Inn at Little Washington in tiny Washington, Virginia, which is 70 miles west of Washington, D.C. It's a long way to go for a meal but it's worth every dollar...More

We love it! We have been to Tallgrass at least 20 times and every time it is the best meal ever. The flavors are incredible, no matter what you order. We prefer seafood so we order seafood for every course.

Tallgrass has not offered discounts or coupons; however, a seasonal menu is posted on their website periodically. Oftentimes, less expensive. I suggest signing up for notices/alerts at their website. I hope this is helpful.
