We haven't been to this restaurant in 25 years....for a reason. On a whim, we tried it again last Friday night. The place was crowded so we thought maybe it had improved. The seats in the booth were ripped and uncomfortable and the food was just as bad as we remember it. The fried shrimp was burnt and hard. The... More

Two couples for dinner. Whitefish was nicely prepared and enjoyed by two people. Fried perch was so so. Chicken kabob was enjoyed. Food was reasonably priced. Very noisy and difficult to converse.

This is the place for great food and a welcoming atmosphere. Who cares if it gets a little noisy sometimes. You would think a restaurant would get old after all this time - not so! We were there recently with our son and his young children. It is a perfect family place. Pedro, the waiter was especially nice to the... More

Great food at reasonable prices. Check out their specials. This is a place you could eat at every day. Home cooked meals and a great variety.

Family run, extensive menu and great service! A local institution with friends meeting and endless repeat customers are obvious. Owner is friendly and solicitous to each table. Reasonable prices top it off!

A great cozy place to go! Bar is small and crowded, always, but short wait on a busy night goes quickly. Food is always good!!

Although we love the food, the service and the ambiance of this little bar/ restaurant, the noise level was so loud and annoying, we couldn't talk and hear each other at our own table. We went on a Saturday night at 6:30. There wasn't a single party or table making noise, this was the general din of the restaurant. We... More

This restaurant and bar has been a Glenview treasure for years, and it's easy to understand why. The food is fantastic, as is the service. The menu is vast with excellent daily specials from steak and seafood entrees to burgers and salads. Of course, there is a full bar serving everything you could possibly want (treat yourself to the Godiva... More

Came here for dinner with friends. Ordered planked salmon (yummy), fried whitefish (also good), broasted chicken (a bit on the crisp side but quite moist). A bit crowded and noisy, but fun. Server friendly and enthusiastic, but not all that helpful about what was actually available. Didn't have to wait long, though.
