Nice atmosphere greats you as you enter into a maritime style restuarant. Huge bar area that offers live music. Food is excellent and reasonably priced.

Has been in Mundelein Forever. Best fish around, hands down. Bar has routine live music. Separate rooms for parties between 20+ guests. Great “Tablecloth” dining.

Food was very good, comes with a salad prepared in form of you to your wishes. Even on a busy night the steak and fish were prepared as asked. Service a little slow. Do not be in a hurry, when you arrive.

No true dress code. It's a nice place - you don't need a jacket and tie, but I wouldn't show-up like I worked construction all day.

Suggest you call and ask - we are not aware one way or the other and again the last time we were there is making us not want to go back sadly yet for I presume some time way down the road.
