Kristy was our server on Friday night (1/11) and she did a great job! She was very attentive and even made sure to let us know the beer that my fiance ordered was having the keg changed out so it would be a bit of a wait and asked if he wanted to order an different one. Great job Team KKG!

The food is amazing- we had truffle fries, the bbq platter, and prime rib and it was ALL great. The prime rib was huge and had great flavors and the bbq was tender and what you would expect to find at an authentic bbq place.

Great food, great service. There was a band that we were seated close too and it was impossible to have a conversation while they were playing. Otherwise, I loved it!

Traveling from out of town and were late for our reservation, the hosts were amazing at getting us seated at the bar and checked up on us to make sure we were comfortable and were still trying to seat us at a table. We decided to just stay at the bar and eat. The bartender Caleb was very attentive and very nice! Amazing experience

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas Eve Dinner at the Kankakee Grill. It surprisingly wasn't crowded and therefore was very quiet and relaxing. We were seated in the rear of the room which was near the fireplace, so that was an added bonus. All seven of our meals were done to perfection and our waitress was very friendly and attentive.

Food has always been good, but really bad service. They finally pulled it together, we had exceptional service this time. Try the potato soup, one of our favorites.

Service and food are typically outstanding. Can't beat the comfort zone deal that gives you soup or salad, entree, and dessert for under $30. Trivia on Mondays is always a fun bonus.

First time eating. It was my husband's bday for us that's splurging and thought something new. Specifically told the hostess I really wanted a steak but I was picky about red in my steak. I was assured it wasn't a problem and told me and our server what I needed to order. New York strip well done and was told if it was thick they would butterfly it. So I ordered and it was med rare. I was disgusted and couldn't eat. Sending it back to be put back on the grill was unacceptable for a expensive steak. My husband's ribs were dry like they been under a warmer a while. We had apps loaded fries and nachos which were good. Our service was but our dinner was not up to expectations. Sorry but we will not be dining there again. We spend alot of money at 4winds being there 2 or 3 days a week even though we really shouldn't " money wise" but we love the atmosphere and cleanliness. Going to kankakee was supposed to be a real treat and it just wasn't.

Highly recommended. Second visit for us with more to follow! Casual to fancy on attire so it will suit any occasion, quick bite, romantic night out. Different areas in the establishment lend to either as well. Just ask your server and they will seat you accordingly.

Food and service was good but we had a reservation for 7:45pm and were told they didn’t have a table for us. Seems to defeat the purpose of a reservation. Had to wait 30 additional minutes to get a table.

We all had a wonderful time as usual. Love the ambience of the place and the live music. The food was perfectly timed and our drinks were filled promptly. We were celebrating my friend's birthday and our server went out of her way to make her birthday special. This is a great place to have a nice dinner, catch up with friends and just relax. My husband and I had dinner here multiple times and no doubt we will be back.

I LOVE this restaurant! It allows comfort in large booths for conversation, good food, reasonably priced, and good service. Open Table made reservations and modifying the time quick and easy. You are not crunched in tight space. Had friends in from out of town, and they loved it. We were able to enjoy great food and service and get caught up on our lives and share memories. We could actually hear one another! I value that since most restaurant environments make you feel as though you are dining in the middle of Grand Central Station! :) Thank you, Kankakee Grill!!! I highly recommend you!

We came for the Notre Dame game, dinner and the give away's they were doing. The food was amazing and we enjoyed our reserved table they gave us with great views to the TV's. The announcer was fun and energetic during the game. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful with guiding us towards some good menu selections. Two out of the four of us won $50.00 gift card and $50.00 credit for gambling which was great!!! We definitely would tell our friends about our experience with Kankakee as well as come back to dine, drink and socialize again. Thank you!!!
