About the restaurant
Welcome to Highlander House Restaurant and Bar. Our beautiful restaurant attracts our clients with unique styles, friendly atmosphere, and delicious food. The name of the restaurant was greatly influenced by our family's roots, which are originated from the mountains in Poland.

The style of the restaurant consists of many of souvenirs, wooden decorations, regional costumes, and traditional instruments to give our guests that authentic atmosphere. Dishes are prepared from scratch according to recipes originating from the south region of Poland called Podhale.

We offer regional and traditional Polish cuisine. Our European plate, sauerkraut soup, sheep cheese soup, unique taste of lamb plate and pork shank ranks highest in popularity amongst our guests.

Every Sunday we have live entertainment featuring Polish Highlanders. With the help of our friendly staff and delicious food, we hope you continue to come back and visit us at Highlander House.

We always love going there. Fresh Polish sausage dish this time was a little disappointing…usually meat is soooo tender/pressure cooked…this time was not tasty or tender. 😕

About the restaurant
The Santoro Family has been in the food service industry since 1988. We renovated AND re-branded almost one year ago in May of 2023. We created a NEW CONCEPT we call MODERN CASUAL CHIC...The new name is Frankie's Since 1988 as an ode to our original restaurant on the Southside of Chicago.

No longer a fine dining white tablecloth restaurant. Our new vibe is energetic music, vibrant craft cocktails homemade pastas, authentic Southern Italian style pizzas (from our new Marra Forni oven) and most popular dishes, such as Ciambotta (sausage & peppers), meatballs, Alaskan wild king salmon, Chicken "limone" with a lemon butter & capers sauce amongst others.

Our updated menu is a combination of old classics from the past 15 years in Tinley Park and new items with the same wonderful service guests have come to know and love from Frankie's.

About the restaurant
You’ve never tasted Italian food like this before. Pasta made by hand every morning; fruits and vegetables sourced from a local farmer - just for us; fresh fish flown in daily and our meats aged to mouth-watering perfection. We have taken old school Italian and added a modern twist.
