Food was wonderful. The nachos were piled high and tasted great. I found that I didn't even need to order my dinner. But
my husband did.
We enjoy eating there as often as we can!

Steaks were awesome. Also, KG Nacho’s were delicious! We don’t remember who our waitress was. She was the best. Please let her know that we appreciated her excellent service.

We asked to be in a quiet booth but we're put at a busy table where singer was and by kitchen door. After sitting a couple minutes they came and asked if we wanted to move due to my request on the reservation. At that point I said no just because it was a hassle and I felt they should see the notations on the reservation before seating not after. Other than that it was a perfect dinner food wise. Amazing actually. Were will be back! May even try a note on seating to see if it works next time 😉

The food we ate was great, but we had ordered a pizza to go, as well as, pretzel sticks. Both were burnt badly. Also, two chocolate domes were missing and the chocolate cake was soaked with who knows what. Really fancied to eat that chocolate cake when we got home. Very disappointed!

First order on drinks not correct, ordered tall crown and coke received short glass with little crown. We always order the same drinks and have not been disappointed till now. Appetizer sweet and tangy bacon needs to be warm. Also, green beans and marinara should have been warm and not served cold.

Enjoyed our evening with friends. We will try again.

Have ate at Kankakee Grille many, many times. However, this experience was out of the ordinary. My wife got her dinner salad 30 minutes after ordering. After an hour and 15 minutes I asked the Manager to check on my wife's soup and the other three rib dinners. They came out ten minutes later with the reply that "the order just came up".
The fries were cold and the ribs were warm, not hot, but good. Noticed that they didn't charge us for the 2 diet cokes and one ice tea, but no apologies of any kind. I know they were lying to us because there were several tables that came in after us and were served before us and some had ordered the rib dinners. I hope this was just a one time ordeal.

Our past 3 times visiting have been quite bad. 2 previous food was gross. This past Sunday I ordered the ribeye because I assumed it could not be bad. It was delicious but I was sick within 30 minutes. Didn’t get to enjoy the casino at all. I came with the intentions of going to copper rock but they were closed. I have even had my last two company Christmas parties at Kankakee grill. ABC LEARNING ACADEMY. I won’t be visiting there Again for a very long time.

We sat on the patio and it was very nice. They had a couple performing which added an extra bonus. The service was great and the food was delicious. My husband ordered the ribeye dinner and I had the lobster roll. The lobster roll was different and a must try if you love seafood! Heads-up..their menu is very limited right now..not sure why. And the prices went up. Overall a very nice evening.

I arrived at 5:15 and I decided to check online for menu while I waited for my friend. I noticed that next available reservation was at 6:30 ...so we almost left instead of waiting. We decided to check at desk to see if there was an opening and glad we did. The patio was empty!! She sat us immediately and had a great meal. May want to check settings so you don't lose business!

The service is great. Very helpful and happy. They recieved a very large tip for that alone because the food was not good. For the price of each meal I expected some sort of flavor. The nachos were very bland and the meatloaf was just dry and off. The chefs veggie of brussel sprout bacon medley was gross and I love brussel sprouts... the mashed potatoes were good tho. We were seated next to the patio door and each time someone came in or out the fan would turn on and was so loud we had to stop conversation until it closed again. The live music was wonderful tho
