Jack Gibbons Gardens has broiled and grilled its signature surf ‘n’ turf since 1922, building up a loyal fan base spanning generations of satiated stomachs. Amid flickering candles and stained-glass lampshades, waiters—many of whom have served the same tables for decades—ferry timeless classics such as oyster Rockefeller, 38-ounce porterhouse steaks, and baked tilapia. The sizeable dessert menu adds a sweet coda to every meal, and the wine list features myriad imported and domestic varietals from Californian chardonnay to merlot made from Italian grapes stomped by Hannibal's war elephants.
If Wyatt Earp suddenly found himself in modern-day La Grange, Illinois, he'd likely feel right at home at Al's Char-House. The well-known, Wild-West themed steakhouse that is approaching its 20-year anniversary, presents diners with all the comforts of a home on the range, starting with the wood-trimmed dining room, where walls display cowboy memorabilia ranging from old photographs to cattle skulls. The menu takes inspiration from the old west too, featuring steaks that can range in size from 8 to 56 ounces. Of course, if steaming, lightly charred slabs of filet mignon, bone-in ribeye, and charhouse sirloin don't make your mouth water, Al's also specializes in seafood such as grilled and bourbon-glazed Atlantic salmon, or shrimp served char-grilled with garlic or battered and deep-fried. The vintage-inspired restaurant boasts plenty of modern amenities as well?a large projection TV screens live sporting events near the bar and the crackling fireplace.
One of the first things you notice about Tavern on La Grange is how colorful it is: hot pink and indigo lights wash walls in a neon watercolor effect, and the bottles behind the bar are backlit with red and fuchsia. Murals of art deco-style buildings and figures give the room another added pop. Pasta and steak dishes are among the menu's crowning achievements, along with the likes of lobster tail and lamb chops. People fill the restaurant's spacious, kaleidoscopic dining rooms throughout the week to take in bistro-style meals, drinks, or one of the establishment's periodic events. Those evenings are just one part of what the restaurant's owners hope makes Tavern on La Grange "a quality dining experience and community meeting place."

Diners may also opt to sip cocktails on the outdoor patio during the summer months, when the sun is extra fiery.
