Our group of 18 decided to go out for dinner, and someone in our group suggested Vickie's Place since they had been here in the past. We called ahead of time to get a reservation since we had a large group of 18, and it was a Saturday evening. We arrived, and our server was able to accommodate us all... More

We were happy to have your group visit us last Saturady night. Someone from the group was nice enough to call us one hour before you arrived that night. They reserved for 12 people. Your server was put on your party exculsively so she could take care of you. Your group did not arrive all at the same time and... More

We stopped for drinks with perhaps the intention of an app or shared plate at the bar as it was early. Service was friendly enough and the view was great but the place was in need of something to freshen it up as it was a little tired and in need of updating. I'm sure it's fun in the summer... More

I like it especially during the summer. The patio to be able to sit down at. Watching the boaters go by or docking. Prices are high though.

We heard this was a good place to try for Pizza and our Friday night is pizza night we tried. The pizza was good and tasty and worth a return. We saw the sandwiches which were large and we will return to try these but in the afternoon when we can sit outside and watch the river traffic because the... More

A great place for ribs or lunch which was my experience. A great day to sit outdoors and watch the boats go by. A had a great unusual soup called Pizza Soup. It was tomato based with all the stuff you put on a pizza. Unique and hearty. I also had a chop salad that was fresh. Service was great... More

Having to be able to sit outside, taking in as much summer you can. Food was a little pricey, waitress could be a little more pleasant. Great drink

Didn't go inside this place, we ate outside on the deck by an active waterway. The service was initially very good, but kind of fizzed out when it got close to 9pm. Still, very friendly server and nice menu with reasonable prices. I got a chicken club Sammy, another friend the Reuben, and another the hamburger. The food was so-so,... More

Just moved to McHenry and have been going to different restaurants all over the town. The atmosphere here is welcoming, the food is wonderful and has great prices across the board, you can sit outside by the river or inside. Have been back 3 times already and will continue to.

The restaurant by the fox river is outstanding, we took the grandkids there and they loved feeding the ducks. The Corona Cod sandwich is the best.
