Contemporary American
Chime & Stave Kitchen and Bar is a neighborhood craft cocktail and dining destination. Enjoy American inspired, artisan meals made with farm-to-table ingredients while sipping craft beer and cocktails in a rustic, easy to relax atmosphere suitable for every occasion. Our whiskey bar is inspired by the art of cooperage and the fine whiskeys that come from the barrels that Master Cooper’s produce. So, what is a chime and a stave?

A chime is the beveled edge at the top, and bottom, of a barrel. It is made up of the ends of all the staves coming together. The staves are the heart of the barrel. Created from oak that must be straight, knot-free, and properly aged, they are shaped and fitted together in a precise pattern that will render the finished barrel watertight.

If you live local, you must try this out. Brussel sprouts and short rib grilled cheese were outstanding. Family friendly but better for a date night. Dress: casual to sharp. Also perfect for casual cocktails at the bar. This is where I will bring guests, when they visit Campton Hills.

Phenomenal food and atmosphere. We have continued to come back after the owner came and spent time with us on one of our first visits. He made us feel very welcome and shared with us about how passionate he is about this restaurant. We will continue to make it one of our go to spots! Highly suggest!

Chime and Stave is a new restaurant and we have visited 3 times recently, for lunch and dinner. I absolutely find the menu to be refreshing, they have a certain number of dishes and they are prepared to perfection. So much better than having way too many choices, few restaurants can do everything well with a clustered menu. I highly recommend Chime and Stave!

Very friendly services. The filet was cooked perfectly. 3 and 4 year old kids are sort of foodies but loved the unique chicken nuggets, cheese burger, fruit cup and cobb salad. I appreciate the fact that Mac and cheese is not offered as an entree on the kids menu but it’s a side.

Two of the four dinners were undercooked and had to be sent back When returned they were charred and the sides were ice cold. Had to go back a second time while two of us were done with our dinner and the other two hadn’t even begun. After all this we weren’t even offered a discount. I’ll never go back

The kitchen was very slow getting our food out, both appetizer and main courses. Despite having reservations and and about a 90% occupancy rate, it took one hour to leave after placing our order.
Waitress was very nice and the kitchen came out to apologize. It would have been appropriate to discount the appetizer or otherwise compensate us.
We will try this restaurant again and hope for a better time.

Love the Décor-a Modern Rustic feel. Burgers are fantastic!! Food took a little while coming out though. Worked for us, because we had another couple and were catching up. But if it were 2 of us...we would run out of things to talk about, and would be asking where the food is.

Great selection of food. You must try the brussel sprouts appetizer - fantastic. The 3 of us ordered the pork chop, the chicken and the fish and chips and all were excellent. Our server was so attentive, the drinks were very good and the experience told us we'll be back. Welcome to our Campton Hills/St Charles area!

Great neighborhood place! All of the food we had was very good and the atmosphere is very nice. Service was a little slow but I know they are still with some growing pains. Owner came by to introduce herself and made a point to make the dining experience a positive one.

Tried the new kid on the block last night and came away very impressed! Chime and Stave occupies a warm and inviting space with a rustic interior and good bar area. Food quality was top notch and the servers friendly and engaging. Cheese curds and Brussels sprout appetizers were excellent as were the steak and Parmesan crusted chicken dinners. The proprietor was on site and engaging with his customers to be certain everyone was having a good experience. Nicely done here Chime and Stave and we’ll see you again soon!

6:45 reservations. Waited 20 minutes to be seated. Server was friendly but not sure about the beer selection or how to log in food on hand held. Manager did comp my wife's meal since her steak was so over done. Spent almost 2 hrs at the restaurant. People are friendly and are trying but we won't be back.

Food was very good. Waiter was still learning the ropes but he did a great job at making sure we were happy with everything. Our appetizers were good (cheese nuggets & Brussels sprouts). The Parmesan chicken, fried fish & bbq chicken pizza were very good. Great portions too. Couldn’t give 5 star review, the draft beer price for a Coors light was $6!!
Way to high for draft beer. We will be visiting there again.

We went on day two of their opening ad despite the small flaws in timing (understandable for day 2!), we really enjoyed ourselves. My husband and I are gluten intolerant and we had a fantastic meal - including naan bread and cheese curds! I can't remember the last time we had either. So thankful to the owner who made it a priority. It was a bit loud and chilly, and the first drinks we ordered were not a full pour, but we will forgive and forget and definitely go back.

We chose this location for a Sweetest Day date night, had no idea they had only been open 2 days! Food was great, loved the cheese curds. Server was very helpful and took time to give us the background on the restaurant. The burger was fantastic. We will definitely go back.

I am sure it will improve. We went on opening night. Our waitress was very apologetic. Our drinks hadn’t come out after 20 minutes, so the manager came out and personally comped them. Our appetizer never arrived. Our food came out (after another 20-25 minute wait) but my daughter’s order was wrong, so had to be put back in which was another long wait. During that we ordered another drink, but that can after we were all finished. The food was delicious, and the drinks were very good, so we will give it another try in a month or so when they settle in.

We dined on opening day and didn’t expect perfection at all. They have some room for improvement. The food served doesn’t look like the photographs on the website AT ALL, however it’s decent bar food. We were hoping to taste the things they advertise in on the site but we got more like Applebee’s type of food. We feel glasses of water should be a standard service at every table, we had to ask for that. Again, opening day no worries just a suggestion. We will try again in a week or two to see if things have gotten better.
