We love this place! Their food is quality pub grub. Offers seafood specials nightly. Tonight the Cajun shrimp gumbo was to die for. Staff is friendly without being overbearing. Tables available outdoors in nice weather. Take time to notice the building!

I know it's a tavern but they also advertised a fish fry and I read about it in an old edition of the Tribune ( otherwise I probably would not have come here with a 5 year old.) We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday for some Lenten fish. When we stepped in the first thing that hit me was... More

It was hopping on Friday night. We were able to get a table and came for the fish fry. You get nice size pieces, but it wasn't seasoned at all. The fires weren't either. The 3 of us all ordered fish and it was all not seasoned as if someone forgot to put it in the batter. The fish itself... More

After eating here several times for lunch we decided to dine here on a Saturday early evening. When we arrived 4 of the 9 tables on the main floor were reserved for the "owner's family". We were asked if we wanted to eat on the 2nd floor which is a flight of stairs that my handicapped husband is unable to... More

Stopped in for lunch on Wednesday. The Special was a Reuben that was out of this world. All cooked fresh in their Kitchen. Will definitely go back to enjoy some of those Craft Beers on Tap soon. I was told they hold a TRivia contest on Wednesday Nights and an Open Mike Night on Thursdays.

Just South of the downtown area this Neighborhood style bar is a great spot to watch a game, have a drink or enjoy a great meal. From wraps to a great burger as well as a great Fish fry, you will not be disappointed. Located in the Renaissance district in Waukegan you are only feet away from a Surf Shop,... More

My wife and I and a couple friends popped in this place one night and were very impressed. It is a typical little pub atmosphere. Very quaint. Local crowd. The food was excellent and NOT typical. The burgers were HUGE and the menu was full of unique recipes. We all got something different on the menu and we all enjoyed... More

Came to the Green Town Tavern on Saturday morning breakfast after seeing a concert the night before. Got there about 11:00 am and parked on the street. Greeted by one on the owners standing in front of entrance. Very Friendly. He directed us straight away to a table. Loved the interior. Small and intimate. Maybe a dozen tables. Most of... More

We went here to have a quick bite before heading to the Genesee Theater up the road. We only had a half hour so sat at the bar. We told the waitress/bartender we had to order, eat, and pay very quickly. We ordered the deluxe nachos, which I would highly recommend, along with 2 margaritas. The nachos came out as... More

This little bar tries hard and the staff is great. A little above average burgers and salads. A clean place and about 12 beers on tap and more IPA's and craft beers behind the bar. Great place to come in for lunch or dinner and a cold beer. A lot of regulars and they work hard to make you feel... More
