In addition to being a full-service restaurant and brew pub, Two Brothers Roundhouse also offers banquet space for a variety of get-togethers, large and small as well as a music venue and the Two Brothers Cafe and Beer Bar. Situated in the oldest limestone roundhouse in the US, its 70,000 square foot facility is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. The Two Brothers Roundhouse menu starts you off with an appetizer of chimichurri nachos, Brussels sprouts or beer brezen, just to name a few, and follows that up with favorites such as autumn scallops, goat risotto or duck 'n grits in addition to a wealth of other entrees, burgers and sandwiches.

Passion for beer, a love of food and live entertainment with a decidedly local flair flourish inside the granite walls of the Two Brothers Roundhouse.

Love this place. On our top 3 picks to go. Great food, good pricing, very good service. Love the ambiance of such a warm and historic building. So many things going on there as well. We had dinner then went to the nightclub and watched the band play. They were excellent has well. A must visit for everyone.

Our group enjoyed our experience at Two Brothers Roundhouse and would definitely come back again. The service was good, the food was good except one girl had the vegan enchilada and the sauce was too spicy for her. Also in wondering why restaurants don't offer French or Italian dressing for salads, but overall experience was very good.

Really cool old train roundhouse converted into brew pub.

Food and beers were excellent. A group of 6 and everyone loved their meals except 1 said he wouldn’t order what he had again.

The tab wasn’t cheap. ($8 beers and $26 entrees per person) but was good value considering everyone really liked their food.

They have all kinds of events Friday and Saturday nights. Great spot to get together with friends.

It started with friendly attention and prompt seating. Our server, Stefani, came over quickly. We received info about specials and had time to decide on drinks. Those were served quickly when ordered and dinners orders were put in and arrived in a timely manner. Food was prepared perfectly and pleasingly presented. Our server and a manager both checked on our satisfaction. We received a dessert menu at an appropriate time and were advised about the day’s special chocolate banana cake. That was a good recommendation! We felt encouraged to relax and enjoy ourselves further; a second cup of coffee was even offered. Not a standard dinner time experience. I recommend Two Brothers Round house for dinner on a Saturday night.

Didn’t really need to reserve a seat as there were high tops available in bar right next t fireplace.

Servers were professional, knew product, friendly, and these are the servers that deserve 20% or more.

We were seated waited for the sever to come by, toolkit our drink order and food order after about 15 min.
Food came no my drink never came our server was very scares was asked by a manger how thing were and said it would have been nice to get my bear but by then it was to late and we were half way threw my meal.
Food is good they have good bear but I found very poor service.
So if want good food and nothing to drink but water go for it.

I had a reservation for 8 which I had confirmed on the phone with the restaurant, but when I checked in, they had to set up the table, so we waited about 15 minutes.

I had the short rib sandwich which I highly recommend. It was very good. The service was slow, there were long periods between getting our drinks and the waitress checking to see if we needed anything. But I can’t blame her cause it seemed like she was handling a few large parties and she was doing the best she could.

Other than those minor issues, we had a good time and enjoyed our dinner and cocktails.

Best restaurant value in Aurora. Service is always friendly. We were in a hurry (going to the Paramount Theater) and server was GREAT! I had the fish Po' Boy which was excellent. We had some special orders and there were no problems and everything was done right.

The staff was great and friendly. They asked if we would like to take the tour before it just happened to be in 20 minutes so we did. It was very educational and fun experience. At the end we sampled their products. My wife loves the coffee liqueur I myself liked their bourbon very smooth and tasteful. We were never rushed it was a nice evening.
Thank you Two Brothers !!

I bought my parents a gift certificate to the roundhouse for Christmas. I was hoping that the experience would be a good one since it was a gift. We came to the roundhouse before a play at the paramount and everything was perfect. Our waitress (Mariah?) was great. The food was amazing. They have a very specific wine on the menu that is hard to find that my parents love, so bonus points there. Dessert was incredible. I didn’t realize they have so many events. Already planning on returning this Wednesday for their brew n view. Can’t wait!

Food was great as always. Server was ridiculously slow, neglectful and forgetful. It wasn’t that busy so there was no excuse; she just kept disappearing. She left us for over 10 minutes just to think about drinks (we only had water), so when she finally came back, we told her we were going to the theater to alert her we didn’t have all day. Then she forgot the coffees we ordered for 15 minutes while our appetizers came, so when she flirted by and we told her, it was another nearly 10 minutes for our cappuccinos (which were delicious.) We asked for spare plates so we could swap tastes of our entrees; we never got those either. By the time she came back to see if our entrees were okay, we had given up and used our dirty appetizer plates. Ended up taking 90 minutes for lunch. Just silly.

The scallops with squash sauce were amazing. Duck breast was good but not a very generous portion for the price. The multi-cheese crostinis were very nice but small; the apple slaw was lovely. Fried green beans were light and delicate but plain ranch was a little boring with them.

Anyway, we’ve been before and will be back again. Next time will be better. Cheers.

I’m afraid that we felt really “pushed” at 5 pm on NY Eve. The server was trying to be very attentive but she stopped by to ask how things were so often, it became a little too much. There were still empty tables so we weren’t holding things up.
Another observation.....I’m a female in my 60’s, my brother in his 70’s were dining with my 95 yr old mother. Why oh why do servers use the phrase “ you guys” excessively?? It drove my mother nuts - she said “ m not a guy”!
I’m a long time roundhouse diner and will continue to be there.

The server was not to be found for 30 minute increments. We were brought soup without spoons. We were belt asked if we needed refills for our drinks. We asked about the tour- she said she would be back to let us know when they were scheduled and then she never let us know. Disappointing as normally this is an awesome place.

We went to dinner with 6 adults and 3 children, all under 2yo. Food was good, service was good & drinks were great! Our waiter was ok, he mixed up on our drink and food order, but once it was sorted out, all was good!

We were disappointed in the seating arrangement. We had 5 in our party and instead of rolling up a chair at the end of the table or seating us at a larger table they added onto our table leaving the 5th person to eat at a table by themselves in the aisle way. Not very pleasant. Also, parking lot was completely full forcing everyone to valet park which I don't care to do even though it is free. Not sure why all the other parking lots were blocked off.

One of THE BEST restaurants and gathering places in the Fox Valley area... we've made Two Brothers one of our 'Go To' locations and love hosting friends and family - Food is great - Service is even better! If you haven't visited Two Brothers yet, make it one of your stops soon!
