About the restaurant
Schnitzel Platz in Glendale Heights is perhaps one of the most lively and entertaining eateries throughout the area and is known for hosting many events and is special enough to help ring in the holidays. In fact, Schnitzel Platz will often feature a special menu that has items only available throughout select times of the year. There are, of course, plenty of consistent favorites you will find too.

Some consistent menu items include the Kaiser in the neighborhood, whole suckling pig, Deutsche Haus platte, schweine braten and the sauerbraten. Make sure you also try the many schnitzels, of course, like the pork schnitzel, weiner schnitzel or the jager schnitzel. Schnitzel Platz also offers a kid’s menu that makes this restaurant a family-friendly place to go. and don't forget to come in and enjoy some authentic German polka music on weekends and our great selections of German bier imported from Germany!

About the restaurant
Jonny Cab’s is a VIP dinner experience in a premiere, modern setting. With live entertainment 5 nights a week, we strive to provide an environment where guests can unwind & enjoy the moment.

We were recently featured by Peter Wren for Hinsdale Magazine who wrote, "I think it's the sum of all these parts - the wine, the food, the friendly service, and all that great sound pouring forth from the stage - that's bound to win people over. As my wife said, 'I don't think there's any place like this in Chicago.' She's right, but thanks to this plucky group of wine-lovers and entertainers, there's now one sitting right in the heart of Burr Ridge."

Our delicious menu by Executive Chef Jeff Stahulak is a modern take on the traditional American supper club. As one diner recently put it, "we expected good music in a vegas-like atmosphere, but the food is your secret weapon."

Come see what all the buzz is about & join the party!

Another very enjoyable meal at Adelles. Calamari was especially good . Try the roasted vegetable flat bread - it’s delicious and better than a veggie pizza !

Oyster Bar
Naperville
About the restaurant
Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar grew out of a vision for a local establishment that would appeal to families of all ages. A place where friends and family can enjoy a great meal of primarily Oysters and Shrimp, but we’re more than just a seafood restaurant, we serve up fresh, delicious meals and creative cocktails in an environment that exudes relaxation. We cater to locals and tourists, providing them a place to enjoy a good time and watch a sporting event on big screens while taking in some of the local history. Many people have passed in and out of our doors enjoying succulent local oysters and shrimp, shared local fishing or surfing stories and spent time just talking about the friendly beach comber atmosphere inside. The casual atmosphere with its friendly and helpful staff has made many patrons feel very much at home be they locals or visitors.

The service here was incredible the wait staff and hosts were very nice and friendly! The food was pretty good just very pricy for the portion size and the cocktails were small and $12-$15+ each but it is downtown Naperville so it’s to be expected. I made a reservation for a standard table and they did put us at high top at first but once I stated my reservation was for a standard table they had no problem moving us to one. I would definitely come back but only occasionally considering the price for what you get.

We had never been here before. We were very happy with everything. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The waiter was friendly and efficient. We liked the way the window completely opened to the outside and we could see trees and the trains behind them. The trains were not too loud. The wooden seats were a little uncomfortable after a while. We enjoyed the ambience.

Food and service was good . Major improvements since February. Entertainment fee is due for dinner after 6pm but it’s not made clear prior to paying for early reservations.
