Wild Hog Saloon & Eatery has all the makings of a great night out—a casual atmosphere, a menu of American-style favorites, and sometimes even live rock bands. The restaurant gives groups of friends a place to meet over meals of burgers, broasted chicken, and ice-cold beers, and take bets on how many spoons they can eat in one sitting. On the weekends, chefs focus their comfort-food expertise on breakfast, crafting homestyle morning meals that make it a little easier to get out of bed.
We serve freshly prepared food from as many local resources as possible. We cook your meal when you order it, and feature fresh baked bread, hand cut steaks, fresh ground beef, hand cut fries and chips, homemade pickles, mayonnaise, salad dressings, homemade pickles, fresh baked pies, and nightly specials.

Some people say it's impossible to find great seafood in the Midwest, but the staff at The Dock Fine Dining & Spirits would beg to differ. Their menu changes seasonally, but it always features dishes made with fresh-caught seafood. Salmon comes grilled on a cedar plank or stuffed with spinach, garlic, and onion, and Maine lobsters are flown in directly from the coast, skirting any two-hour layovers at O'Hare. Steaks and chops beef up surf 'n' turf options or sate appetites all on their own.
Within the rustic limestone walls of a 19th-century former millhouse, chefs at The Old Feed Mill dish up classic comfort fare inspired by Midwestern home cooking. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the building's water-powered mill and solar-powered horse carriages fueled a successful commercial flouring business. However, with an uptick in highways and cars, the mill's beneficial connection to the once-prosperous railroad system diminished and the building was eventually abandoned. Current owners Dan and Nancy Viste began refurbishing the building in 1992, and today The Old Feed Mill is a member of the Vistes' quartet of related businesses. The Millstone Mercantile, The Old Feed Mill's onsite gift shop, flaunts an eclectic cache of items, including locally made artwork, handmade quilts, and the first beard that Abraham Lincoln ever stroked.
The kitchen and wait staff at Los Portales cultivate a family-friendly atmosphere that is as warm and comforting as its cuisine. Mexican classics such as chimichangas, burritos, and nachos each come with a variety of protein options, from shrimp to steak. Fajitas and quesadillas join specialty menu items, including chicken mole and enchiladas suizas.
Housed inside a castle-esque building, replete with a towering turret, House of Lords Restaurant and Lounge treats its guests to regal feasts of prime rib, potatoes, and salads in a cozy environment. Guests belly up to the bar for frosty goblets of ale or sip cocktails with steak-house meals in tucked-away booths and nooks lined with bookshelves.
