This is a place where anyone would be hard-pressed to have a bad meal. Every time I got to "the Squire" in Crystal Lake, I walk out satisfied or beyond satisfied. I recently had lunch with a long time friend and decided to try the spinach salad for a change (watching my weight, you know - ha ha!). I added... More

I have yet yo have a bad experience there. The caprese salad is excellent, the roasted garlic is beyond amazing. A delicious open face steak sandwich. The cheesecake is to die for. And the atmosphere is both fun and chill. go out for a fun meal or a relaxing bite. Either way it's a great place.

Have different special every weekday. Always enjoy the 1/2 price burgers. Usually on menu for 1/2 price once a week. Great popcorn served while you wait for your meal. Very busy at times and sometime have to wait to be served.

Came here really to see the live music played by Brian Castillo a great young musician so had no expectations of the venue. However, I had a great evening. The staff (Debbie and Jaime in particular) were so welcoming and efficient and the food, although typical, was excellent with little waiting time. This bar has a great atmosphere and the... More

Our monthly dinner crew came back to The Village Squire because we can always depend on getting a great meal here. It did not disappoint! They had about 8 special dishes that night and a few of us got the Whiskey BBQ Pork Chops which were tender and flavorful. Service was prompt and very courteous. I highly recommend this place...

Our waitress provided our table with good service, however 3 out 6 plates were not how we ordered them. This restaurant does not have any gluten free bread or buns. They do have a flourless chocolate cake. It will be a while before we go back.

They have something for everyone. Their burgers are good. The atmosphere is very good in this place. They have live music on the weekends. Not sure if it is offered during the week. I am not a big drinker, but I enjoy their Mia Tia.

I used to live here and this was one of my favorite restaurants then and it doesn't disappoint now either! Only wish they still did the roasted garlic plate the way they used to...but it was still delicious!
