I used to go here once in a while, usually for dinner. Family style, typical American fare. Service has ranged from average to exceptionally slow. I can't say the food has ever been anything special, often tending to be bland. Management is bad - I ordered dinner and they wanted to charge me for a little onion in my salad,... More

We've eaten at Palatine Inn several times. It's a typical Greek-owned family restaurant. The burgers, wraps, breakfast, etc. are good but it's not the place to order a strip steak (though they have them). Prices are reasonable and the service is great.

Enjoyable restaurant that makes you feel comfortable and not rushed. Came here for lunch with friends we haven't seen in a while. The atmosphere is also comfortable and friendly. Tables are small so a booth is preferable. Portions are large so expect a second meal.Soup is very good along with generous amount of buns.

If you are use to Buffalo or Continental, go here instead. All their food is very good with big portions and reasonably priced.Their service, speed and consistancy is rated an A. Clean and a place that is run well.

We moved to Florida about a year ago and it is hard to find a "Greek diner" which are so prevalent in the Chicago area. Palatine Inn is one of the good ones. For those of you not familiar with the concept, a Greek diner has very little to do with Greek food and more to do with pretty much... More

One of my last trips to Palatine to visit grandchildren so we stopped here for a family outing and good meal. We were promptly seated by a friendly greeter and introduced to our server. Orders for refreshments were taken and a bowl of bread was delivered. I ordered the Chicken La France as it was one of the specials for... More

if you are simply in need of nourishment or want a place to quietly talk with you friends or loved ones, you can do it all here and also enjoy excellent food at affordable pricing. We have dined here numerous times. Be certain to test their Matzo Ball Soup.

Never disappointed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Just had Chicken La France in a lovely lemon sauce and hubby the chopped steak mothered in grilled onions. Both we're daily specials so soup or salad and dessert included. I always bring home a "people bag" so I get 2 meals. Exceptional value, lovely family who owns and manages it. Second generation...

To start the menu item are randomly titled. For example, Chicken la France has nothing that makes it French. It's chicken with a lemon sauce with rice. Other menu items are also randomly name. I ordered the Oxford Reuben just a plain old open face Reuben. The kraut had no flavor and the fries were under cooked. I'm never going... More
