Red Apple Pancake House & Restaurant

Reviewed By z3r0h3r0

Best breakfast experience I've ever had!

Staff is top notch! Very friendly and make you feel like family.

The food is amazing! Fresh, flavorful and cooked to perfection. My poached eggs couldn't have been more perfectly cooked.

You get the perfect amount of food, I was full but not overly so.

The fresh fruit is the best fruit I've had at a restaurant.

Food is reasonably priced as well.

Great experience and I wouldn't hesitate to come back!

Reservations not accepted, we do offer a "call ahead, priority wait list" which you can call days and weeks in advance to get on, highly recommend to reduce wait times.

Reviewed By Sandy S - Glen Ellyn, Illinois

The appetizers, main courses, dessert and wine were outstanding; however, the extreme noise level made it extremely difficult for my daughter and me to converse. The same has been true other times I've visited, and it keeps my friends and me from meeting there.

If you love hand-cut fries, eat at Steamboat, but the smoked meats (to this at-home small-batch smoker) are moderately bitter and seem to taste just a bit of petroleum smoke. No sweet apple our crisp mesquite undertones. Specifically, we tried beef brisket and pulled pork. Both were a bit dry and certainly not exceptional. The nadir: baked beans that were unpleasantly squishy (sc. super-cheap canned beans with a bitter smoke flavor). That said, the sauces were good, and the service was quick.

Gnarly Knots Pretzel Company

Reviewed By Pauleen D - Winfield, Illinois

If you haven't stopped here for a soft, delicious home-made pretzel then you're missing out! They offer a daily lunch pretzel, stuffed full of good meat, veggies & cheese. The meatball pretzel is awesome (very tender) and the chicken is awesome! Then they have their cinnamon-sugar pretzel (with a side of Nutella if you like) that is the BEST ever! We often stop for one of these on Saturday afternoons as a special treat. Their hours are lunch only, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. and on Saturday you need to get there early as a line starts forming before they open. it's worth the wait. This is a funky little place, has a couple of bar stools at a small counter to eat in, picnic tables outside to enjoy when the weather is nice. They have a nice selection of homemade soups as well - yum!

Reviewed By Chicago-BB

We take our elderly dad out for a meal every two weeks and he only eats fish so we're limited in where we can go. We've tried Carol's, Olive Garden, Chilli's, and a couple of Chinese restaurants. We finally landed on Village Grill and he loves the fish platter. I love the chicken strips, either as a dinner or on the salad. My husband has tried the fajitas, burger, and corned beef special. The wait staff are attentive and patient with my dad and even though it's always busy we've never had to wait for a table.

Ivy Restaurant

Reviewed By Lynne A - Anchorage, Alaska

This was our first time to dine at Ivy and we were delighted. The service was helpful, efficient, sensitive to our needs (turned down the music). The menu features a wide variety of appetizers and entrees. The tilapia fish with crab was delicious and served with fresh veggies was healthy too. There is a pleasant and peaceful ambience to the place that compliments the food all of which gave us a splendid dining experience. We were with a group of friends and enjoyed a private dining room. Prices were mid-range.

Blackberry Market

We are on the corner of Main St. and Hillside in downtown Glen Ellyn – across the street from St. Marks Episcopal Church and Giesche Shoes.

Reviewed By Avidtraveler919 - Miami, Florida

One of the few places that has actual fresh today (like a few hours ago) sweets. The cookies and brownies are fantastically good.I always purchase them and haven't tried some of the other choices.The soup is sooo good. Just try it and you will be taking some home. I have frozen a quart or two of my favorites and they are perfect for those nights when you want something really good but don't want to cook or go out. This was a bit out of the way for me but it is so worth the trip.

Made in <a href=Italy Trattoria">

Reviewed By fullpricej - Western Springs, Illinois

First time at this restaurant, went based on TA reviews. Met friends at 6pm on Friday, and we were seated right away. Small space and by 6:15 the place was full and a line was forming in the small entry area. The menu was varied and they had good specials. Food was ok, not the best. To echo several other reviews, the service was not good, it is small and noisy and it took a very long time to get our 4 pasta entrees, 3 of which were from the specials menu. One shrimp special was disappointing in that it had only 4 shrimps. At one point the owner (I assume) came over, asked if we wanted more wine (we said yes), then became rude to us when we pointed out how long we had been waiting for our dinners. He never brought our wine or checked back with us. Not good. It is obvious the restaurant takes care of its regular customers, but not newbies. We will not return based on the service issues - may have returned for a plate of pasta but poor service = no way. Many other options.
