A passion for authenticity. Nostalgia for heritage, and recipes that have been passed down and held dear. Ingredients sourced from the Isles, and from local farmers.

Welcome to Balmoral Restaurant. Grand Scottish Fare as you’ve never experienced before.

Lush, dark Scottish wood tones greet you upon entering Balmoral Restaurant. A deep-set coffered ceiling hides recessed lighting, designed to light your table elegantly, providing just the right mood. Scottish designs surround you, from the tartan carpet, to wrought iron fixtures, to the swords and shields of lore, to wall murals that evoke the placid Scottish countryside. At Balmoral, we bring the incomparable splendor of Scotland to you.

We celebrated my husband's 81st birthday with high tea. The restaurant is about a 1 hour drive from home, but well worth the trip. The food was great as was the service. We felt welcomed and we enjoyed the Celtic music in the background. It was a special experience, and we hope to visit again.

What a fun place to dine! Great drink menu and food menu. Everything they do is quality. Beautiful place settings, bar area and the actual building! I was hoping to get brunch as I saw a brunch menu online but they stopped doing that after Covid. Prices are pretty high.

This is the PERFECT place to take your spouse for a special occasion! The decor is gorgeous, the food is to die for, and the whiskey list is extraordinary! Everything down to the chinaware is perfect, and the staff was warm, friendly and wonderful. The steak dinner I had rates among the best ever. If you’re looking to treat yourself and your spouse to a special night out, Balmoral is a “do not miss it” experience!

Excellent restaurant. The town of LeFox is just outside of St. Charles, IL. The restaurant is easy to get there (right off Rte. 64). It was refreshing to sit down and enjoy a good, quality meal and the owner really cares about his restaurant. Too many restaurants just do not care about quality and reputation. Balmoral is the exception. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who really cares about quality and ambiance. Top notch.

We love the food and the service! My husband is a Shepard’s Pie lover and he said Ballmoral’s was the best he’s ever had! I enjoyed the Fish and Chips very much. The fish although fried, was light and very flavorful. The carrots and green beans brought to the table family style was a nice addition to the meal. The green beans especially were very good and included a nice spicy finish!
Sabrina was our server and she was super friendly and accommodating. The restaurant has outside seating which we were happy about. However, Sabrina warned us that because it was a little windy that day, the umbrella sometimes rattled the table and it could be annoying. She was right! A couple of times I thought the umbrella was going to lift the table! I know it was hard to get outside dining up and running, and hopefully they can come up with something new for next summer.
It’s a great restaurant and an awesome theme! We were scheduled to be In Great Britain this week on vacation, so having dinner at Ballmoral’s was our best alternative plan! Cheers!

First time here. Celebrated my 4th wedding anniversary. Mix drinks were amazing, food absolutely was delicious, staff friendly and attentive. My husband had the beef Wellington and I had the fish and chips. There was a lot of food but the chef cooked it to perfection. The owner came by to check in with us, he and our waitress were delightful. My husband and I will definitely come again to try out the rich and deep menu.

We were seated as soon as we arrived in a quiet area of the restaurant as requested. Our server was great, explaining the menu and the little things that make Balmoral special. The Royal Albert China on each table was a nice touch. There was even a small bell to call the server.
The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. We were not rushed. The food was very good. The bread was freshly baked. I ordered beef Wellington. My husband ordered a steak. Mine was cooked perfectly. His was undercooked. The staff replaced it ASAP.
The meal included a large portion of vegetables. The potato croquettes were delicious.
The desert menu was fabulous but the meal was so filling we did not have room. I would definitely return to Balmoral to sample other items from the huge menu. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
