Reviewed By Bret R - Antioch, Illinois, United States

Been here a couple times now... Great atmosphere. Have not been disappointed! Great food. Reservations suggested as it can get really busy. Had the lobster bites, and eggplant and chicken dish... Was wonderful.

Fitzgerald's Genoa Junction Octagon House Restaurant

Reviewed By Trav_LN_now - Crystal Lake, Illinois

Haven't been here in over ten years. Forgot how good it was. Friday night Fish Boil. They got rid of the old deck and poured a beautiful outdoor seating area overlooking the covered Fish Boiling Area. $15.00. AYCE. Fish. Potatoes. Onions, Coleslaw. Bread. One piece only of the cobbler desert. I remember when we came up here in the past, the line to get food was always a pain if all the inside seating was filled. They have a tent in the back for additional seating with staff manning a food station. No line out there. Great experience. They got us back.

Sweet Angelines Bake Shop and Gourment Cafe

Reviewed By illinois travelere

Indoor and outdoor seating. open for breakfast and lunch, 7:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. The perogi (with sauerkraut/mushroom or sweet cheese filling) are unbelievably good. An order of six with apple sauce and sour cream is the stuff of dreams. There are many vegetarian choices.

Midwest Breakfast Company

Reviewed By az_rosie - Wisconsin

I was really appreciative of the attentiveness of the staff. We were immediately greeted, and while the employee was cleaning off a table, another staff member came over and greeted us. Once seated, our drink order was taken and brought immediately. The menu has a wide variety of options for breakfast, and these options were reasonably priced. The portions were hardy, and I loved the fact that the toast was actually served with color to it. Well worth the visit!

Call or stop by today to try one of our famous handmade pizzas. We also offer a full menu, including Chicago-style hot dogs, fresh-sliced Italian beef, deli sandwiches, ribs & more!

Reviewed By Andrea T

They serve and especially good pizza. The crust is crunchy. The sauce is made in house, same as the dough. Can be really busy around lunch and dinner times. Free refills on the sodas, soup cracker, and parmesan cheese. Their burgers are lacking, but the Italian beef are superb. Bathrooms are clean, and people are always cleaning the tables.

Manny's Snack Shack

Cute little "shack" across from Mary Lake. Offers breakfast/lunch. Large servings, reasonable prices. Yummy food!

Reviewed By Ace J - Chicago, Illinois

This diner-like place was crowded on a Saturday morning. The locals eat here. The corned beef hash and eggs were excellent. I also tried the turkey/cheese sandwich. which was good. The people-watching is also fun; the cooks at the grill work very hard.
The prices are reasonable This is an experience in Twin Lakes worth trying.

Paninos Italian Sandwiches and Crab Shack

Reviewed By crownct938 - Grayslake, Illinois

My husband and I had dinner with family members at Paninos this weekend to celebrate a birthday. Once again we had a fantastic evening! We had the mussel and calamari appetizers. Mussels were delicious with a garlic butter sauce and the calamari was perfectly prepared. My husband and I both had the Mediterranean Sea Bass for dinner which was outstanding and my niece had the lobster roll which she thoroughly enjoyed. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. It's a great spot to sit and relax either inside with a view of the wooded lot or outside on a pleasant summer evening. We will be back again!

Sand Bar and Island Grill

We are located on the shore of Lake Elizabeth, complete with a public boat launch and parking. We feature a variety of fresh seafood and amazing Angus beef entrees. Weekends have fresh shucked oysters and garlic steamed mussels, while supplies last. Reservations are welcomed but not necessary. Kid friendly environment complete with a treasure toy chest for all the little ones.

Reviewed By Branford S - Chicago, Illinois

I was not expecting the food or service to be this good. Upscale type menu at reasonable pricing. Variety of fish on the menu, gluten free bread which was the best I've had, quick turn around on orders - all impressive.

Staff was quick and kind. There was a mix up when I signed in and jasmine took care of it right away and did a great job.

I am going back tonight.

Doyle's Pub

Reviewed By carefree85377 - West Chicago, Illinois

It was a surprisingly chilly day and we weren't' too hungry so we just had the clam chowder and it was VERY good. The soup is homemade according to the menu but it definitely tasted homemade. The restaurant is quite large and is divided into the "pub" area and a quieter room space as well as outdoor space. Wait staff was attentive and helpful.
