Beelow's - Lake Zurich
All was good!
Food was good although steak was overcooked, asked for rare and got medium rare
Excellent service, excellent food- steak was perfect and delicious, nice ambiance
Third consecutive bad experience. We had enjoyed nice visits prior to the last three. So, I am confident that it can no longer be excused to having a bad night.
For the second time the prime rib was room temperature at best and not warm. This concert was even expressed to the server. The server acknowledged my concern and promised everything would be great.
If you are still reading this you can probably anticipate that things were not great.
The soup (cream of broccoli) had at least 3-4 thin white items in it. I am not sure if they were small fishbones or plastic bristles from a cleaning brush. I pointed this out to the server. He offered to clear the soup from the bill. Seemed scared to escalate the finding to a manager.
The girlfriend had the meatloaf. She found parts of it to be tough.
My prime rib was not prime. It was much closer to very rare than medium rare. This seems to be the trend at most places. They know there is less waste if they have to cook something more as opposed to do it over because people don't know the difference between rare, medium rare, etc. Also, it was room temperature at best not warm.
About 7-10 minutes after being served the waiter did check with us. I mentioned some of the items not to my expectations about the steak. He did gesture to cook the meat closer to a medium rare. I passed, the delay of doing something a second time and just kept the steak as it was served.
Management probably had no clue what happened as they never even buzzed by the table.
But hey, other people love this place so good luck.
Great food and great atmosphere
Although I had been to Beelow's often for dinner or their fabulous Sunday brunch, this was my first time for lunch. The menu was fairly brief, but still managed to offer a wide-ranging choice of items, from light to heavy.
Service was superb and very professional. Overall a very delicious and comfortable experience.
Exceptional service and even better food! Wonderful brownie with ice cream for my mother's birthday. They made her feel very special. But I could never say enough about the food!!!
Really enjoyed our meal. The French dip sandwich was fantastic. We were a large group and our server Kayley was wonderful.
Waitress made mistakes on order, brought the wrong topping on bone in ribeye , asked for med temp got rare.. took 20 minutes to correct.. others in our group where done !! Poor management!!
Had twin pork chop. So thin it came out tough and dry. Maybe try just one thick chop. Date had the chicken. Just ok. Disappointed. Won’t be back
Service was a little slow at first. Rib eyes were delicious.
We waited for an extremely long time for our burgers as we watched other tables receive there food. The waiter apologized but did nothing about it.
Our server was excellent as well as the meal
Great service and food!
Its one if our favorite restaurants!
Everything was good except my steak was a little dry. Huge portions on the burgers!
Asked for an end cut on the prime rib. I did get it but was really dry. Server was awesome!! Got a regular cut and it was quite tasty. I wish I could remember the servers name. She was great
We went as a group of 6 for Sunday brunch. Overall, the brunch was moderately priced and offered a good selection - prime rib carving station, omelets, waffles and pancakes made to order. There was quite an assortment of hot entrees, but very limited on salads and cold selections. The fresh fruit was tasty and ripe. Desserts were limited.
The only sides available with the hot entrees were hash browns and one variety of mixed veggies. The selection needs to be tweaked to provide more choices of sides and salads. It's too heavy on meats. And with all the meat selections, there should be at least mashed or baked potatoes. Hash browns are great for the breakfast selections but not so much for hot entrees.
The restaurant was not crowded and service was very good.
What a great find and value for a Sunday brunch spread!
The wait staff and the chefs were friendly and very helpful. Had perfect weather for sitting outside in their covered outdoor area and the food was amazing. Excellent prime rib with outstanding french toast made to order.
It was an amazing deal for $ 24.95
Cocktails, wine and the service at the bar were very good. Apps and our service at our table was also very good. Dinner fell flat for many of us, with two overcooked steaks and one overcooked meatloaf. I promptly returned my steak and did not receive a replacement until everyone was done eating leaving us disappointed. We traveled in from out of town so I am not sure if this is normal or not, but based on reviews I would assume no. Would go back for cocktails and apps.
Absolutely delicious!! Our server was great!!
Best steaks we’ve ever had. Have always been consistently excellent every visit. Our go-to dining experience.
We sat in the indoor/outdoor patio and had a wonderful dinner. Service was a little slow but overall it was good. Steaks were amazing! We will be back. Thanks
Dinner was fabulous. Our waitress was the sweetest young woman. Her name is Jessica and I would recommend her to any one. She explained everything and answered all of our questions. She had a phenomenal personality!! And such a beautiful attitude!
THANK YOU JESSICA FOR MAKING MY DAUGHTERS' AND MY DINNER AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE.
My entire family decided on the 12 oz filet mignon with the parmesean crust. deliciousohh!! I was full after 8 oz but could not stop myself. I thought a comp side salad might be nice considering the bill though.. Will definitely go again.
My boyfriend and I were happy with our service and the food was fantastic. I had the salmon and he had the bacon hamburger. I would highly recommend the key lime pie for dessert.
Very nice from the hostess greet to the waiter , the wine and food were great very tasty , we will return.
Birthday celebration. Guest of honor couldn’t stop raving about the food.
Went here for our 2 year anniversary dinner. Food was very good; the steak was cooked slightly more than I normally like but still tasted delicious. French Onion Soup was amazing. Staff was very friendly and surprised us with a free dessert and champagne! Overall very good experience.
We took our grandson to dinner and ate in the patio area which was very pleasant. Our waitress, Jessica, was great. The tilapia dinner was very good, but the stroganoff had too many onions and not enough of the beef or noodles. Our grandson enjoyed his burger and fries. Overall, we did enjoy dining there and will return in the future.
As always, great food and excellent service. Dining inside or on the patio is always a joy and the food is always high quality and perfectly cooked!
Our server was excellent. He was prompt and courteous, knew the menu very well, and made suggestions and recommendations. Everyone enjoyed their meal and said they would come back again.
Excellent food and service. Desserts are also awesome!
Food was expensive, poorly cooked compared to required temperature of meat and service was very slow and not very attentive. Wine was good value.
We have been to Beelow’s many times for special occasions. Their food and service are top notch. We usually get the filet and the double baked potato with bacon and cheese. Their pretzel bread and corn bread are also very good. We always have leftovers for dinner the next night! We have had Robert as our awesome server many times. He is excellent and very friendly. We definitely recommend this restaurant since we always have a great experience every time we visit.
We may have to avoid Beelow's buffet on hot/humid days. It was questionably comfortable when we arrived at 11:00am, but after a brief shower the roof was closed up. That made sense, there was no other way to handle it but it became UNBEARABLY hot and humid on the patio. Never is inside, dining room service offered on these buffet Sundays, this is the second time we hurried to leave because of the oppressive air. It spoils the experience. And we love the buffet, so it may be a three season choice for us from now on.
My porterhouse was not the best cut of meat and I ordered a peppercorn topping i got parma cheese not what I ordered.
My wifes steak was not well as requested
The appetizers were good, crab cske and i forgot what else, we had a meal at wildfire grill and it did not compare to that
Next time wildfire grill will win out
Celebrated a birthday
Father’s Day and while expected that there may be delays everything was excellent food service and a wonderful time had by all
Rob is the best waiter we ask for him every time. The food was so good. We had a great time.
