We went on a Sunday night and it was busy but we were able to get a table. (It looked like people were waiting for tables by the time we left around 8...) The drinks were yummy - I had a cosmo and my husband had a black and tan beer. The pizza was really good - a yummy deep... More

A nice restaurant located in a scenic part of Oak Brook. I would describe the food as very good "pub grub." A little noisy during lunch time, but a friendly group.

for some reason people like this place a lot and I can't figure out why. Greasy bar food with limited menu. Basically burger, fried fish sandwich and some other sandwiches. I was forced to come as a larger party but would not be back on my own. No decent beer on tap either. Just standard watered down lagers.

This is not a "trendy" or "hip"place. It's a neighborhood joint, located deep in the suburbs...That said, it has an informality and a setting that makes it both welcoming and fun from the first step you take into the place you. In short, you know this is where "the locals" hang out. The menu is long on comfort food...Burgers, pizza,... More

York has good burgers and pizza but service is spotty some times OK, but this last visit was likely the worst service anywhere. Does not make sense that people that work for tips would ignore customers and be so inattentive. Worth a visit once just for its history but you can do better elsewhere. Country house in Clarendon Hills is... More

Delicious food in the oldest continuously operating tavern in Dupage county. Pub food served. Burgers and the such. I had the prime rib sandwich and it was really good.

This is a real bar and restaurant with a homey feel .Burgers are great and bar has that "CHEERS " atmosphere to it. Staff is on the ball and without being pushy make a pleasant time .Stick with what they're known for and that's burgers .Tried the fish that was a mistake looked like a selection from the Gordon's fisherman

On the shore of the mill pond (complete with the historic and operational Graue Mill), the York Tavern can be crowded but it's worth the wait. Food is excellent / burgers are "world famous".

I have come to this tavern for years --- when it was the original building and they only had hamburgers and cheeseburgers on the menu! The atmosphere and food have always been terrific -- and this time was no different. I highly recommend!

Very tasty pub/bar food. Appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, beer, etc. It's in an old historic building, extremely small so at a busy time you will have to wait. Dress warm in winter months because it does get cold with the door always opening in the small restaurant. They keep it very clean and have several TVs to watch the games. Right... More
