“a fun late-night spot”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Good food and a fun atmosphere. Wednesday night is trivia night, and there is always a good crowd for it.

“Surprise, surprise”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

The service was slow, BUT the food made up for everything! I had a margarita flatbread and OH MY GOODNESS, it was divine. Perfectly cooked, with the right amount of flavor in each bite.

Our waiter offered a sample of beer, which was appreciated because it was an $8 beer. I'm glad they can accommodate the customer and their curiosities.

“Great Food & Beer!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

We have been coming to Ellyn's since they opened. This is really one of the best, most friendly places in Glen Ellyn. The food is surprisingly good (don't let the fact that they are located in a strip mall fool you!).

I recently had the Veal Bratwurst and they were really excellent (I ordered w/o the buns...served them directly on the roasted potatoes and put the pickled red cabbage and mustard drizzle on top...a bargain @ $14!). Also, the turkey burger is one of the best I've ever had. Great beer selection and if you can 'afford' the calories, get the excellent tater tots with your sandwich/burger!

Excellent service, specials and beer selection as well!

“Blackhawks fans galore”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

When you want to have fun, and watch a Hawks game with friends for a good beer and food, this is the place. They have some great specials, like $3.00 drafts on Tuesdays, and they have a respectable selection to say the least. So if you are in Glen Ellyn and looking for a place to have a few suds and a bite, give this place a try!

“Bad bar service”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

This could be a great bar but it's really hard to get served. We were there on a packed Saturday night, there were two bartenders both of who did their best to avoid eye contact with the customers. Our average wait time to be served each time was 20 mins, such a shame.

Some of our group ate and the food looked pretty good, the live music was great but the poor service really let the place down.
