Garden View Cafe

Reviewed By Kristina M - Lombard, Illinois

I felt the café really could use something. Staff walking around looking for people as their hot food was getting cold...I didn't like. There prices were super high. For the 4 of us to eat was $60. That is crazy! we got 2 kids meals, a salad and burger and fries and drinks...should not cost $60.00. You can bring in your own food and we will be doing that next time.

Francesco's Hole In The Wall

Reviewed By Boystowtraveler - Chciago

A friend invited me to this place for lunch and while it is rather small, it certainly is not a hole in the wall. It is located on a main road but it is set back, so look for it. The decor is really classy and the atmosphere is warm. It was relatively busy for lunch. The menu is on the wall and there are plenty of options from which to choose. My friend and I went with different pasta dishes and we were both pleasantly surprised. Delicious! Prices are very reasonable. Desserts are also available and we ordered a cake slice. It was huge, so plan to share it unless you are very hungry! We look forward to going here again very soon!

Glencoe Roast coffee

Reviewed By kpycsy - winnetka, illinois

I'm not one for super strong coffee so this is my favorite place. They make a iced decaf that is brewed overnight and delicious!! That's hard to find!! And they are always so helpful and nice. I also love to support the local businesses!!

Four of us for dinner. Two ordered the salmon special. Thoroughly enjoyed. The orzo was yummy. The gyros plate was good. Service was slow. Nonetheless, we opted to stay for dessert. The chocolava dessert was excellent , as was the Homer's chocolate ice cream

Graeter's

Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter started handcrafting Graeter's Ice Cream in 1870. Today, generations later, we proudly remain family owned and operated. This is made possible thanks to you, our legion of loyal fans. For a century and a half, Graeter's has remained steadfast in our commitment to making ice cream in 2 gallon French Pots one batch at a time.

Lost a bet and the prize was Graeter's. I think I actually won! The Black Raspberry Chocolate Chunk was pure heaven. Even in 15degree weather. I found the portions to be good sized. The staff could have been friendlier but they weren't rude. Samples were free flowing.

Walker Bros. Original Pancake House

Reviewed By Joseph T - Indianapolis, Indiana

Busy place, large menu, great variety of breakfast options.

Our visit was on Sunday morning about 9:30 am and we had about a 20 minute wait which was reasonable considering how busy it was.

We ordered the Apple pancake to share for the table.

Coffee was very good. I had the meat lovers omelette, my wife had the vegetable omelette with swiss. My wife loved her vegetable omelette. My meat lovers omelette with swiss was good.

The hash browns were very good, we had them topped with cheese.

As many other reviews said, the Apple Pancake was terrific, definately happy we ordered it.

Service was very considering how busy it was.

All in all, Walker Brothers was a hit for us.

Bluegrass

Reviewed By Zach S - Chicago, Illinois

This place is great. Found it using TripAdvisor even though I've lived in HP all my life. I shared the Rosemary Chicken Sandwich with herb aioli and the Braised Short Rib with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and they were both great. The bread they brought was amazing and it came with Honey-Cinnamon butter. We got two desserts, the Bananas Foster and Chocolate Bread Pudding. The Bread Pudding was amazing and the Bananas foster was good. We will defiantly be back soon.

Walker Bros Original Pancake House

Reviewed By Dr T

Arrived at around 4:15pm on Weds......no one person in the restaurant but my wife and I. Promptly seated, with a very happy server. Placed our order....I had a Baby Dutch which takes around 15-20 minutes...so we knew the food would take awhile. The server brought our drinks over and asked if we needed anything else. After 15 minutes, the food started coming out, but by a completely different server. Then the rest of the food came out, and that was the LAST time we saw the NEW server...why, because everybody was gossiping, etc., and not paying attention to our table....which was right in front of the window. Finally, I had to get up and ask for a beverage refill...then when I asked for the check, I finally asked where our original server disappeared to....answer..."she decided to leave". Think you better consider rolling out some new management of this place....if the servers and busboys have nothing to do but gossip our text....find something for them to do.

Taco Nano

Reviewed By William F - Chicago, Illinois

More of a carry out joint--with really, really excellent taco's. Fresh ingredients provide little taste explosions in every bite. It is not cheap--dinner for two generally is about $30 without drinks--but it is well worth the price. It's small, with little ambience--but it doesn't try to be anything more than what it is--a place for excellent tacos--some of the best I've had anywhere.

Since we moved to Northbrook in 2013, we’ve gone to Ruth’s Chris Steak House for every wedding anniversary. This year was 48. We have never been disappointed with the wonderful food and excellent service. Each year this wonderful restaurant has made this dinner special for us... from sparkling hearts spread across the table to their special dessert wishing us Happy Anniversary. We’ll be back next year for #49 as well as for other special occasions in 2018.
