Tribes Alehouse & Grill

Reviewed By micknewt - Flowery Branch, Georgia

Some of the best food I've ever had at a brewery/grill/bar setting. Reasonably priced meals with an extensive variety draft beers and food (Hint: don't go to the website first found when Googlng). Go to tribesalehouse.com then check out the food and beer selections. Overlook the fact that the Mokena location is in a strip mall. Don't believe the photo that Google pulls up, I have no idea where they got that pix. You won't be disappointed when you get inside. We went mid-afternoon on a Friday and it was busy but not overcrowded and we had fast and excellent service. There were four of us and we all enjoyed our meals and craft beers. I had the pan-seared Cajun mahi and it was very good and an excellent local IPA to drink. There were a couple of expensive food items. Maybe they are worth it but I don't know.

Hailstorm Brewing Co.

Reviewed By GoatWhacker - Midwest USA

I've been here several times. Located in an industrial park and the interior has an industrial feel with pretty spartan plastic tables and chairs. Lots of barrels that I assume are full of aging beers. High ceilings, exposed ducts, etc. Seems to have people of all ages and has sort of a community feel.

Dog-friendly, maybe a little too friendly as some of the dog owners don't keep an eye on their dogs at times.

I have had no problems with the service. Even when it's busy the bartenders are efficient, and I don't think I've ever waited more than a minute or two to get a beer. They have various food trucks on weekend evenings, but this place is focused on the beer. They have several styles available and I have been happy with almost all of them.

I give them 5 stars since what they do, they do very well. This is a place to go drink great beer.

Looking to take family to see a movie over Christmas holiday season? Marcus offers a great movie experience. Reclining chairs and full service bar and restaurant really amplify your experience. Great service and a great experience. Only advice, down load app and buy tickets in advance. As with all movie theaters walking up and buying tickets is a thing of the past.

Bengtson's Pumpkin Farm

Bengtson Pumpkin Farm is the premier fall festival and Pumpkin Patch in the Chicagoland area. Established in 1980 the Bengtson family was selling their pumpkin crop to the public from the family farm. Over the past 37 years the farm has come to include one of a kind attractions that have families returning year after year. Our farm has food options that are most easily described as award winning, not your typical festival food. Unlike many other farms and festivals these days Bengtson's admission includes unlimited access to all the rides and activities. One low price for an entire day of fun. There are many options when it comes to pumpkin patches but Bengtson's is the only choice. Our farm is the highest rated and most reviewed farm you will find. The largest corn box play area anywhere, the all new Cow Spin Coaster, all paved walkways so even the newest members of the family can enjoy the farm from the stroller. Bengtson Pumpkin Farm is an experience like no other.

This place is one stop if you have children and need pumpkins. They had carnival rides, food, music, hayrides, even pig races. My grandson loved this corn pit, its like a big sandbox only filling with corn kernels. He was doing cannonballs and snow angels. They could use more changing stations for babies, but it’s all outside so just wing it. On the way out we got some donuts, pumpkins and kettle corn. Fun for the whole family. Weekend are crowded, just a FYI.

Crisis Rooms

Reviewed By Lanzen - Elkhart, Indiana

My husband surprised me with an afternoon at Crisis Rooms for my birthday in September 2017. We had never been and had no idea what to expect.

The check in was really smooth and organized, with an electronic waiver and a few videos to watch. We were excited!

Our first room was Infected, which was really challenging! We didn't realize there were different levels of challenge on the rooms, and infected was in the middle. Also, it was just him and I alone....I think having more minds working together may have helped.

We did Apartment 10b for a second room, which had another couple booked with us. We enjoyed this one more simply because 1. We now knew what to expect and how the game worked, and 2. We had two extra minds. We made it right to the end, but ultimately lost.

The rooms are REALLY well thought out and put together. The clever mindset it took to put this all together is really amazing. The clues and the puzzles really make you think outside the box, which is so much fun!

This is really one of the neatest adult experiences that I've ever done and we will definitely return to try out different rooms!

I recommend doing more than one room if it is your first time. You get good on the second one!

VIP Foot Spa

Reviewed By MouseMagic - Chicago, Illinois

In my opinion, you really can't beat what you get for what you pay. For one hour "combo" massage ($34), you receive a hot water foot soak with complete massage (fully clothed). The masseuse will begin with your head, then will do arms, then feet (the longest portion), then legs and back. It's wonderful to "get away" and relax for an hour for an affordable price. It is a very clean establishment, and the employees are friendly. There is always nice music playing. I love the fact that they have late night hours. Sometimes, I get a random urge to have a massage, and most massage places require an appointment way in advance. I can call and get in here within the hour. It's cheaper, more convenient, and in my opinion, just as good as any other massage I've had. It's definitely a different type of experience unlike a traditional massage, but the perks make me return again and again!
