Had a great meal with my wife. We also had a special sound testing by Dennis Quaid, he was preparing for a concert later that evening.
I’ll say that the atmosphere is pretty awesome. My bf and I got there early and we walked around saw all the different rooms and decorations. We sat down had our drinks. I had the flapper girl floozy. This was so good I could of had about 4 more. If you’d like sweet fruity drinks I recommend it. My bf got the thyme for whiskey. I’m not a huge fan of whiskey but he enjoyed it. He also got the bees knees. This one wasn’t bad it was just very lemony. The food was just ok. Nothing special like everyone made it out to be. I had the salmon. The vegetables kind of tasted like they were previously frozen. The salmon didn’t have much of a maple glaze to it. My bf had the sandwich flight. I felt like the meats were from the frozen food section it was not that good. We were there before the band began. We were seeing show in the theater so we couldn’t stay. There was a magician during dinner. He was so nice and did an excellent performance at our table. All in all we will be coming back just for performances and cocktails.
This is a great fun filled venue for great entertainment, food, drinks and the most awesome decor. Highly recommend it The music is always a wide variety of famous and some less famous performers but all worthwhile to appeal to everyone’s taste. So happy we found this cool spot!!!
They had a great Mother's Day Special with real authonic Italian food and Mom's ate free besides.
Another excellent time at Club Arcada. As always food was excellent and service was primo. Can’t go wrong with Ron’s Italian dinner. Can’t wait for next time we dine at The Club Arcada - highly recommended!
Food was excellent
We had a wonderful evening. Love to follow The Flat Cats!
Dined here several times before a show. Only suggestion is to put a pasta dish on the menu and another vegetarian option, love this place!!!!
Manhattan (Jim Beam) was $12.50 or $13.50 -a very pricey and watered down drink in comparison with T&T and V&T and custom blended blackberry brandy. Chicken Wings - 3 for $8.00 and one was very scrawny but tasty - not a good portion at all - most restaurants give you about 6. Loved the salmon and my husband loved the mini slider sandwiches. Our waiter , Jackson, was wonderful as a person and very attentive to our table from our arrival at 6pm to departure around 10:30pm . The Flat Cats were a fun group but seemed like dance floor too small/crowded.
Unique place! Loaded with antiques from th Speakeasy time frame. Many rooms with memorabilia in each, and out of the way places to enjoy a cocktail! The servers are dressed for the Roaring 20’s, and ours was attentive and fun! They all seem to help each other out, and making the experience more fun. The menu is very small if you are looking for a large meal. We did the Small Plates, with a appetizer, and there was plenty to eat! The Lemoncello flute was a perfect dessert! It worked out perfect before a concert at the Arcada Theater! We will do it again!
First time there with friends for dinner and dancing. It was so much fun! We will be back soon!
This was my first visit to Club Arcada and it was a fantastic experience!! Such a beautiful venue! A must visit for anyone interested in history/vintage/antiques. Very unique atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Looking forward to going back again soon!
Great service and outstanding live music. Drinks are a bit pricy but they've got to make their money somehow. If you haven't been here, check it out!
Service was excellent. Mike's our server was awesome! We went before a show downstairs and got in earlier than our reservation. No problem seating us. We had a few cocktails and enjoyed apps, mini sandwiches and flatbread. The Limoncello Flute for desert was awesome and my gal loved the canoli.
The food was wonderful, our server was very friendly and helpful and the decor was amazing! We will definitely be back!
This place was outstanding! It was much more than we expected! It was as if we walked into an actual 1920's speakeasy. There are so many items on display that I recommend a "walk around" tour of the place prior to dinner or drinks. The staff was outstanding...including their authentic attire. The show itself was great too! Well work the $10 charge. Will definitely go again.
Once again, a unique and wonderful experience! From entertainment to service to ambience; Club Arcada is a singular venue! Plus, real cherries in the Manhattans!!!
The atmosphere was charming and fun! The food was excellent. We had a great time. Highly recommend!
The club experience was everything you can ask for with great food and entertainment. Looking forward to our next trip out
Great environment and food. Really cool spot. Great for a bite before a concert downstairs.
Decided to try it our before the Gene Simmons concert. The speakeasy style of the restaurant is unique and really cool. My fiancé had the salmon while I had the filet. Did a flat bread as an appetizer. All was excellent....service was great and you cannot beat the convenience when attending a concert at The Arcarda.
What a pleasant surprise, after a show, 8 of us went for dinner..We all had the Italian feast, Sausage and Peppers, Ravoli, Salad and Desert.. what a bargin.. The sauce ( not gravy) was excellent.. Service was friendly and mostly attentive but the food stole the show.. would go back over and over again.
Went here to celebrate a birthday, and to see the live musical act. The ambience is so fun, the cocktails are amazing, and the service was a touch slow, but exemplary for how busy it was that night. I definitely want to come back!
Fun atmosphere with really good food and service. The music both overhead and live is enjoyable. I loved watching the silent movies while sipping my cocktail and waiting on lunch. I like when we had plenty of time to relax before a concert but also on another occasion we were short on time before a concert and the wait staff made sure we were served timely so we weren’t late. It’s definitely worth the trip, a good 45-50 for me from Chicago but will definitely visit again. The imaginative cocktails are really fun and yummy!
I thought it was great I love the 1920s,30s concept felt like I was at a actual speak easy and the food and drinks were great I will definitely be back keep up the good work!!
Had an awesome meal on Friday night before attending a concert at The Arcada Theater. Dominick is my favorite waiter...always polite, friendly and efficient. We enjoyed salmon for dinner and it was cooked perfect and tasted great. This is a true Fox Valley gem!
Always an amazing place to see live music.
the staff is friendly and accommodating and the menu for both food and drink is excellent.
Very cool place!!! Will have to go back soon!
Sunday dinner was great, meatballs just like mamas. Tables are a little small, but work out okay.
The food was amazing, not good for the hips but great for the taste buds. Small menu, but what we had was delicious. Very convenient if you're going to a show at the Arcada Theater, which we were. I would highly recommend it for a change of pace. My only concern was the uneven joint in the floor - only because my 80 year of mom with a new knee was with us. Overall, I would definitely go there again.
Great staff, excellent food. Will definitely be going back.
Amazing experience! We were going to a concert that evening and wanted to have dinner before hand. Atmosphere was beautiful, food was amazing and our server was charming. We would recommend your restaurant to all just for the experience of a 1920 club alone!
Limited menu done right. I would rather have a limited menu than a huge menu done wrong. Speciality drinks a little pricy, but very good. Definitely the kind of drinks you just don't find everywhere which makes them special. Ambience was like I've never seen before. One of a kind. I know I will be back again with other friends. I will be looking forward to seeing things in the different rooms that I missed last time. We were a little short on time due to a concert. Can't wait to go back.....
Great food. Great service. Staff was very attentive from the moment we walked through the door. We never had to wait for food or cocktail. Timing was impeccable. All the servers worked w a big smile even to closing time.
A must if in the area.
Dinner and a show at the speakeasy was a fun time! Somewhat limited menu but the food was good ... steak, salmon, flatbed and trio of sliders were our choices. Jackson our server was fantastic. He did a nice job keeping an eye on us! Enjoyed 'The Prisoner' red wine for a good price. Live music with a Sinatra singer this last Friday; fun & engaging. Will recommend!
I can’t wait to go back. Everyone was so nice to talk to. Loved the decorations and the drink and food were fantastic 😁
Love having dinner at The Club Arcada before going to a show at The Arcada A perfect afternoon of outstanding food and entertainment
Ron’s Italian dinner is just like Mama used to make. Highly recommended!
Great place to hang out with friends. The menu is limited so don't go there for the food although it is good. The drinks are really good, but small and expensive. The dining room is big and decorated in period furniture, with the wait staff wearing period clothes. It's fun!
More varied mid-price range items on menu and more salad offerings would be nice.
Found it distracting that the band was doing a sound check during the peak dining time :-(
Salmon was amazing! Awesome experience!
