We often get asked, “Where is a good place to eat and drink?” after their escape room experience, so we thought we’d make planning your night out a little easier. Below is a list of some of our favorite places. It’s a work in progress, so we’ll be adding more as we discover them. At each the service is fantastic, but stands out in their own way. Let us know your favorites in the comments!
Ellyn’s is just down Roosevelt from us and has become a favorite for food and drinks after. Excellent beer and cocktail list and great pub food. They are great for families as well as adults looking for a night out. Reservations accepted and recommended. (The best way to find them is head East on Roosevelt, turn left at Baker Hill Dr., then right into the strip mall.)
One of the newest to Glen Ellyn, Maize & Mash is a whisky bar featuring american and southern inspired food. Located on Main Street a few blocks South of the tracks. Their whisky cocktails stand out, as well as their cozy lounge complete with couches upstairs. Small shareable dishes are featured. Call ahead seating is is recommended for parties of 6 or more.
For a finer dining experience Fire and Wine should be your next stop. Just off Main Street, a couple blocks South of the tracks. Rustic Italian food with a modern twist. They have great small plates and full dinners. The decor really stands out, with a city feel in a suburban spot. They have a new menu twice a year, and often feature a signature dish and cocktail. For parties of 6 or more they take call ahead priority seating.
