Great food, service and entertainment. Memorable night for my mother’s Birthday. Max Rae’s singing was a delightful surprise. We will be celebrating here again soon.

Everything about our experience was amazing with one exception . . . Food, ambiance, service was a 6 star. But as an "older" person dependent on hearing aids the noise clutter was annoying. (Not unusual for most restaurants) I am certain that those who don't depend on aids have no problem. Regardless next time there is a celebratory event, Vernon's will be #1.

Food was good, but not as good as you’d expect for those prices. Tortilla for duck tacos were soggy, but not from the taco juices, but rather because they just weren’t fried well. The short ribs had great flavor but were quite dry. Food just really should’ve been better for those prices.

The atmosphere and drinks and food were all exceptional (the drink menu contains recipes from back in the '30s era and are really good.) Under the menu guidance of our server Gloria, we were able to pick great pairings for the Surf and Turf and lamb Rack Chops. The service was stellar. Very enjoyable and are looking forward to our next visit.

Had a great time. The entrance process brings you back to a true feeling of entering a Speakeasy in Chicago.

Food was great and the service was timely and informative.

Very much enjoyed the atmosphere and the music.

Cant wait to return.

The process for getting inside was cool and set the stage for a different dining experience.
Lobster Bisque hands down best thing ever.
I’m from Maryland so whenever I see blue crab cakes outside of Maryland I’m suspicious. They weren’t the best I’ve ever had but they were pretty damn good.
Cocktails were some of the best, wife had a sidecar and I a smoked old fashion, both were outstanding.
I had the prime rib and the wife had salmon. The prime rib was good, perfectly cooked but came with a sauce already on it I wished they left off. The wife had salmon that she thought came with a bruschetta on top but the menu wasn’t to date, it was good and wife thought bruschetta would’ve put it
Over the top.
Sean the server/sommelier was spot on and picked a great wine for dinner.
I could’ve gobbled the pesto risotto all night, it was great.
The lemon/strawberry pound cake was a delight to finish the evening. I didn’t want any cause I was stuffed but could’ve had two.
Service was excellent, every need was taken care of and the wife and I will be back.
Can’t wait until the bar opens back up.
