An honest to goodness neighborhood corner bar and restaurant like the "old days" growing up in the city. How unique that the genuine ambience has been preserved in the big city River North area. Stepping into Club Lago is like stepping back fifty years -...More

Excellent service, excellent food. Old school vibe, calamari is as if your Mother and cousins made it. Perfect for holiday parties. Everyone should visit it for a taste!

Always a pleasure eating and/or drinking at Club Lago. Nothing fancy, just good food (or drinks) served by friendly people in a relaxed environment. A very welcome break from corporate restaurants/chains.
