Only problem was that meat was not prepared as ordered and had to be returned to the kitchen to be redone.
Ordered the special on Saturday for dinner - pistachio encrusted trout. The fish was burned. I couldn't believe they would serve something like that. The excuse was that this was the last trout they had. They did not offer to bring me a menu or ask if I would like to order something else. Very odd. In my experience this is pretty atypical. Hope it is not a sign of a coming trend.
The food was OK but the service was extremely slow.
Excellent choices of dishes. Good services!
They are always extremely good. I do not know what else to say as I have given them 5 star ratings.
Mother’s Day madness. Res honored on time and service was great. Too noisy.
Wonderful Mother’s Day brunch
What an enjoyable morning to celebrate Mother’s Day with my wife and sons. Amazing buffet and service. As expected, Carlos and Debbie (owners) provided another special experience.
Nice place. Menu is solid with good seasonal specials. Disappointed with the change in the banana cream dessert. Loved the original with the tick cheesecake like crust. Heard the problem was with peoples expectation when ordering the dessert. Agreed, it was not your typical banana cream pie. Instead of changing it, probably should have just changed the name. The new version is nothing special.
Food was good. Waited for 10-15 min despite having a reservation.
I have known about the Happ Inn by reputation for years but this was my 1st visit. Unfortunately my meal was not very good (Fish & Chips - quite soggy and lacked flavor). My wife's burger was "just OK". There are better restaurant choices nearby.
We were seated in a small back room crowded with tables and were not well attended to by servers. While drinks were timely the food service took longer than expected. There were 6 of us dining. The seared tuna sandwich was tasted, however the I toasted plain whit bun did nothing to enhance the flavor. The French dip sandwich was grizzly and inedible. The server did remove it from the bill, but it was too late to order something else, as the service was sparse. The 2 salads were plentiful and the chicken sandwich was fine. Fries came cold but were replaced with hot, tasty fries. The atmosphere was pleasant and they did not discourage lingering.
We have been to the restaurant before, so we knew what to expect from a crowd and noise perspective. The waiter we had Joe was excellent. The only thing I did not like was being stuck in the back room away from everything. It was a special occasion for my sons first communion, maybe if I noted that I would have got a better spot.
Bday girls dinner
Best turkey burger in the northern suburbs..been there 500 times and thats what i always order...
Great fun and lively atmosphere with great food and fun staff!
Always a great choice for a casual business lunch or with friends. They do what they do better than most!!!!
Always amazing. Best salad dressings out there. Loved the fish and salad we chose. All yum
We were disappointed in our service and our food. The server was overworked, we were seated near large groups with multiple small children, my fish wasn't cooked and I had to send it back.
Always very good food in a comfortable setting. I've enjoyed the Happ Inn many times over the years and will again.
Great ahi tuna tartar. The only bad thing is it’s only served in the bar and not the restaurant. I don’t understand that why don’t you serve it in the restaurant also
Very good. I am a regular there!
chicken was skimpy and whitefish very bland..
better for burgers and sandwiched
Food was good but not crazy with our waiter. He didn’t do anything wrong - but didn’t have much personality.
We enjoyed the meal and would go back. Hopefully we’d get a different server.
50% off bottles of wine on Wednesday! That is more than enough to give 5 stars! This is not fancy dining, but for a moderate level restaurant, Happ Inn deserves 5 stars for everything else. Lively environment, great service, decent prices. The menu hasn’t changed much over time, but it is varied enough. The food quality is excellent with a southwestern bent. My tortilla soup and my wife’s cream of broccoli were great. My Cobb salad was terrific with lots of chicken and all the ingredients you’d expect but with an unexpected Thousand Island dressing that worked! My wife loved her 3 chicken tinga tacos which were deemed abundant and delicious! But 50% off wine! Wow! It’s great!
Dependably good food at a reasonable price. Good service.
Easter buffet very nice.
Always great time @HappInn.
Solid menu and great service.
Easter Brunch rocked!!!
Our server was outstanding! Cannot remember her name but she definitely is tops.
Food was delicious as always!
Terrific menu with a "farm to table " freshness. Staff tries to satisfy every request. Enjoyable!
Went 8 people for team lunch. Reserved via opentable. Seated near the bar area. Server seemed overwhelmed by the number of tables she had to cover. Some liked their food choices (the skirt steak, pasta with chicken, but others did not ( terrible veggie burger and not even hot).
One of us had to wait forever to get the coffee refilled.
Some of us went there previously for a special ordered business lunch and that was very good. This time disappointed. Maybe since a 20% tip was automatically added by restaurant to the bill did not make them try their best. We probably won’t be back...
Good food as always. Good service
We enjoy stopping into the Happ Inn when we are out in Northfield. We do wish the menu had more choices, particularly in salads and sandwiches. During this particular visit we had unusually poor service. This hasn't been the case in prior visits where the wait staff has been friendly and attentive.
Menu is combination of American and Mexican. Good selection.
Server was attentive & knowledgeable about the menu items.
Parking can be tight
Seated promptly on arrival.
Had a great experience there. Our waiter was really good and attentive. Food came out in a timely manner. The fish tacos were excellent. We also got flatbread pizza which were so tasty.
Will visit there again.
The special was fantastic, service was wonderful and I can’t wait to go back.
Delicious options for adults and kids. Wonderful bar selection. Family favorite. Carlos and Debbie have crafted another gem!!
It was all good from the very beginning until the end. Great wait staff and great food. A neighborhood gem.
