A friendly neighborhood feel to this restaurant as soon as you enter. Crowded with people clearly enjoying themselves. The noise level is high but still conversational at your table. A sort of Illinois supper club. Steak, seafood, pasta and traditional entrees. Well prepared but no real surprises. The cocktails truly are king sized. Our party of 4 shared the fried calamari. Rather than receiving the usual rings and tentacles Raymes offers diced pieces of a much larger squid. The presentation is surprising. The batter is light and the calamari is tender but the different sized cubes does cause some of the calamari to be overcooked. Our parties ordered steaks and fried Blue Gill. The steaks were cooked perfectly to temperature and were greatly enjoyed. The Blue Gill was lightly battered and sauteed in garlic butter. The garlic did not overwhelm the delicate filet of fish but did add interest. I greatly enjoyed the pile of small, thin Blue Gill filets. We will be returning
