Harner's Bakery Restaurant

Reviewed By jillkaryn - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

We had eaten at this restaurant many times in the past with our aging parents but that was several years ago. We recently dined here as we were visiting the area. The atmosphere was unchanged....very comfortable and inviting. The food was just as we remembered....always reliably tasty! Servers were efficient and pleasant. Was good to visit Harner's again!

Oberweis Dairy

Reviewed By ChicagoOlivia - Sugar Grove, Illinois

Oberweiss is a wonderful "family tradition" I/we have been going to them since their earlier store in the early '70's.

My Favorites are the "Turtle Sundae" and "Chocolate Malt."
My husband loves his "1 scoop Hot Fudge Sundae." They put "candied pecans" home made to use on their Turtle (&other sundaes, I believe)

This is a family run business and they make their own milk and Ice Cream products. They have opened various other stores.

There is always a line in the evenings but seems to run quickly.
They sell their own milk & milk products in addition to a home delivery service.

What I don't like is after every sale the keep ask us to take part in their 'moola' club. Not interested.

Tusk Thai Cuisine

Reviewed By Elizabeth B - Batavia IL, United States

Our family has been going to this restaurant so often, we are considered regulars!!! That's with good reason as we have been to so many Thai restaurants and always comment afterwards that Tusk is better!!
The dining room is small but most places like this are small.

Graham's Fine Chocolates & Ice Cream

Reviewed By CubFan1948 - Chicago

A nice little comfort stop in Geneva. The gelato was great, creamy and delicious. The portion size was huge for whatever we paid. The coffee and drink choices were ample. They have a nice choice of sandwiches and salads at great prices. The outdoor area is really nice on a summer or early fall day.

The Turf Room

The Turf Room offers an American Eclectic menu that changes with each season. Whether in one of our three dining rooms, lounge, wine bar, or track room, you are assured of a great experience. So relax and enjoy the upbeat atmosphere, friendly service, and most of all the unique Gastronomy!

Reviewed By vagabond116 - Chicago, Illinois

While I do not often award any place 5 stars, not that I don’t really like a place but sometimes after repeat visits things come out very good but not excellent. With The Turf Room and after numerous visits we have never been less than thrilled with the menu, the service and the outstanding food! Whether fish, pasta, steak, pork it is ALL great. Make no mistake this is a special occasion restaurant, so expect to spend some cash. Try it and you’ll be back. Wine selection is very good, very good cocktail menu—it hits at all cylinders. If there is one thing we don’t truly love, it’s the heat and the fireplace. We try to sit back in rooms away from the fireplace, very warm.

Preservation

It's a cafe and wine bar in downtown Geneva, IL

Reviewed By Monica R - McPherson, Kansas

I was delighted with the patio of Preservation, just the sort of cafe atmosphere my friend and I were looking for on a Saturday evening in Geneva. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. We ordered food that sounded delicious on the menu. Unfortunately, while it was good, I can't say I was blown away by it. I'm more than happy to visit again on future trips through town.

All Chocolate Kitchen

Warm place for coffee, chocolates, plated desserts,all occasion cakes & pastries made to order, authentic italian gelato, soup & savory bites. Life size Chocolate sculptures made by celebrity Chef A.Roby are on display in the store.

Reviewed By TravelerChicagoarea - Geneva, Illinois

I've always enjoyed the gelato here and frequently purchase truffles and other things, just don't try to get a coffee drink here if the place is the least bit busy. The staff that works the coffee/ food end is completely disfunctional. They move like they are stuck in molasses and yet still manage to bump into each other . It would be comical if it weren't so darn annoying . I finally walked out after a 15 minute wait in which time they had managed to serve only 4 customers who were ordering ordinary things like lattes and cookies

Gaetano's

Reviewed By Gerry S

We had dinner with our son at Gaetano's last week - the food was delicious and the service was great. Michael, behind the bar upstairs, made a fabulous cocktail and the wine selection was quite diverse, while not overly expensive. The preparation of the calamari was exquisite, unlike any I've had before. We came from Naperville for this dinner and it was well worth the drive.

Ari's Kitchen Co.

Reviewed By Brenda S - North Aurora, Illinois

This is a small restaurant, open for breakfast and lunch. I know it’s a local favorite, but I just don’t get it. The best part is the owner, who is always waiting tables and making customers feel at home. The food is ok, but not as good as many other restaurants of its kind. It isn’t as clean as I prefer. I was afraid to use the ketchup bottle. The prices are good, and portions are large.
