    Visitors to the Elgin Public House step into a cozy interior reinforced by exposed-brick walls. A culinary crew revives weary locals with a menu of hearty pub eats and a beer selection of 87 varieties imported from across Europe and the United States. Chefs use certified-Angus beef for burgers, stuff pork chops full of bleu cheese cornbread and mango chutney, and hand-cut steaks in-house after aging them a minimum of two weeks to ensure optimal flavor and prevent them from prank-calling patrons. A calendar of weekly events keeps things lively with regular offerings such as Wednesday-night trivia, Friday-night fish fries, and daily specials. One Tuesday each month, limited-seating dinner-pairing events offer six-course meals, with each course accompanied by an alcoholic beverage, such as red wine or tequila.

  • Bowes Creek Country Club
    Ranked #8 by Golf Week among Illinois's public courses, the award-winning golf course at Bowes Creek Country Club incorporates many of the area's natural features, from rippling farmland and scenic bluff slopes to Bowes Creek itself. The 18-hole layout stretches to 6,900 yards from the tips, but players of all skill levels can join in thanks to five sets of tees at each hole, which effectively shrink the course without it ever getting rolled up and tossed into a dryer. Away from the links, an elevated, 30-station driving range with target greens allows golfers to practice right onsite. Although the club prides itself on its members, it's also pretty welcoming; visitors can gain full use of the facility with single-day memberships that essentially displace outdated green fees.

  • Grumpy Goat Tavern
    Aside from a drawing on its logo, you won't find any actual grumpy goats at the Grumpy Goat Tavern. That's a shame because nothing perks up a goat up more than a few frosty pints and some Cajun–inspired pub food. The tavern makes its home at The Highlands Golf Course, so instead of goats, you'll find hungry golfers and locals ordering up plates of creole chicken and biscuits, jambalaya, and flank steak topped with étouffée-style sauce. These hearty meals pair with drinks from the fully stocked bar; the Grumpy Goat boasts an extensive beer list (complete with limited-run and seasonal brews), as well as cocktails made from top-shelf spirits. Oh, there's also whiskey. Lots of it, in fact, from distillers ranging from Kentucky's Woodford Reserve to Scotland's Laphroiag.
