Yet another place that is awesome. They have karaoke on Fridays and Saturdays. I have never tried their food, but go for the drinks. Only weird thing I saw, was some girl come in to close the door. I am sorry, but if you move by a bar you know its going to be noisy! Especially when I sing...LOL
I love this bar. It is a little like stepping into someones hunting shack in the woods. There is a lot of wood paneling, the room is very dark and there are dead animals all over the walls. Aside from the dearly departed furry friends there are also a lot of kitschy objects to draw your eye. From what I remember the drinks were well priced. This is a very friendly bar. The regulars were more than happy to come and give us advice, life lessons and helpful pointers as to what bar to patron next. We also found some old-timey porn hidden on one of the shelves. Jackpot!
Amazing. Truly amazing. From the moment that my friends and I walked into Cabin Fever we were treated like royalty. The bartender and owner catered to our every whim (and shot request), the bar regulars kept giving us money to play the juke box, and we made friends with everyone that was in the bar that day. Of course, it didn't hurt that I forced my friend to dress up like a Green Bay Packer cheerleader because he lost a bet. Such a conversation starter! In addition to the friendly staff and fun clientele, Cabin Fever has some decent pitcher prices and unbelievably cheap food. A Chicago dog and chips for $2.00?! This was the promised land.

This place is the best Czech place around. My girlfriend had the breaded pork tenderloin with dumplings and I had the pierogis with bacon and onions on top and they were both EXCELLENT! Good sized portions including dessert, soup, and amazing homemade bread. The staff was very friendly. The busboy even ran my girlfriends purse outside in the snow because she left it behind. We are definitely coming here again. A great change from the usual places.
I had dinner last night with my Sister and the food is just like mom never made! Seriously, the pork tenderloin was perfect last night! Excellent beer as well. I always have a wonderful meal and it is maybe $20 a person for too much excellent food!
Awesome place, came here with my GF and we both enjoyed the food. Portions are gigantic, you get a free desert and the food itself is excellent. I'm not a good judge of Czech food but it seemed very authentic and we certainly liked it.

A great little candy store, the kids love walking to it and my son has a "the usual?" Order
I love this place ...I went there today with my bf, son, and two nephews we loved it she was so friendly my nephews and bf got ice cream they loved it I got gummy bears and we got some other candy and soda and soda is served like it was back in the day in a bottle with a old fashion straw this place is the cutest I'm telling everyone about it... the candy she had brought back memories loved it!!!
This is a cute little place. The staff was friendly, but when asked what the "ice cream bowl" listed on the menu was, she said she didn't know. I ordered two scoops in a cup and thought the ice cream was way too sweet. You could actually feel the sugar in your mouth! And I have a huge sweet tooth! But then again, I have never been a fan of Hershey and that's what their ice cream is made with. I did like the place itself. It's outdated, but homey. I especially loved the outdoor seating.

One word, two letters: GO! You will not be disappointed. My boyfriend and I went this past weekend. I don't think I would have ever stumbled upon this hidden gem if it weren't for the great folks at Groupon! The atmosphere was intimate, but not necessarily romantic. There was space between tables which is a definite plus so you're not elbow-to-elbow with the table next to you. The decor was nice, but not overdone. The food was delicious (I had the cobb salad -- w/ green apple vinaigrette...YUM! and my boyfriend had the GIGANTIC pork chops. We both loved the food and the portions were generous). The martinis -- out of this world! It's hard to find a place where the bartenders serve martinis the right way. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to a bar/restaurant and ordered a Lemondrop Martini, but got vodka and lemonade in a martini glass...or a Dirty Martini that was more olive juice than alcohol....ick! Not here! Not only do they mix them right here, but the options are extraordinary! It'll take me a good 15 trips before I'll be able to sample them all. On this particular visit I had a Dirty Martini (one of my favorite drinks ever!) and an Orange Oasis martini. The Dirty Martini was perfection. The Orange Oasis was a totally new experience and one I will be looking forward to having again. I've always wondered why there is no orange martini option whenever I go to a martini bar. Well, Olive or Twist answered my prayers and delivered it to me chilled! I'll be back...and in greater numbers! Girls night, here we come! :-)
I must say that you will not think your in Berwyn while your dining here (Not putting down Berwyn). The steaks are good cuts, especially for the price, Tuna steak is delish, but i really love the lemon fettucini. Save room for the white chocolate bread pudding, you wont regret it. Great service, and you can hang out at the bar before and after your meal.....the whole downtown package.
Inconsistent. Has great potential. The bar is good. The food is good sometimes. A little pricey for the area so the need to deliver consistently.

I just moved into the neighborhood & was not sure what this small little place would deliver to my door. We ordered sesame beef, jumbo shrimp fried rice, egg rolls & they gave us complimentary crab ragoon. Everything was fantastic! The jumbo shrimp fried rice was above & beyond any shrimp fried rice that I have had. Very fair prices. Delivery within 30 minutes of order. I am very satisfied!!!
Great customer service, but food was just okay. Vegetable egg rolls were very generous in size, but had a fishy taste to them. Crab rangoons were also large and good. The Kung pao chicken was tasty.
Ordered delivery. We were given the wrong food and couldn't catch the delivery man. When we called, they didn't believe us-- said that we ordered wrong-- and that it would be two hours before they could redeliver. First impression and last impression- no.

Buona Restaurant & Catering

Reviews:
Very sad. Moved back to this area and was dying for a beef sandwich. My son picked up order and it had tiny pieces of cheese, not at all an added topping that I was charged for. Enough to want me to find a new place for beef sandwiches and I was loyal to them for years. Even had them cater a Christening.
Buona Beef has always been one of my favorite places for a beef sub. The have solid service, a good menu, excellent subs, and decent prices!
This really for their catering arm, although I have to give a shout out to their excellent italian beef and cheeseburgers. We ordered italian beef, sausage, mosticoccoli, vesuvio potatoes, and lemon chicken. For only $25 they delivered it to Plainfield, on the Oswego border. The delivery man set everything up for us including putting water that he brought, in between the pans over the sternos. We ordered everything hot but they recommended it be warmed for about 15 minutes. He arrived on time, cleaned everything up and the 3" italian bread for the sandwiches were even cut! Portillo's needs to take a lesson from them!

FitzGerald’s

6615 Roosevelt Rd
Berwyn, 60402
Reviews:
Will I be the first reviewer to give Fitgerald's a less than stellar rating? Yes. Am I happy to do this? Not at all... but after the sad sack service, bad/incorrect drinks, and members of our group being assaulted/groped by someone who was either a staff member or friends of the bartender, 2 stars is all I can cough up. I'd love to splurge and give it 3 stars based off hearsay and the good time I know I could have had, but this past Saturday night, in the Sidebar portion of Fitzgerald's it was an NG (not good) sort of time. We ended up at the sidebar because there were was no way all 10 of the members of our group were going to pony up $12 cover to hear the end set of a band we'd never heard of when we just wanted some drinks after a rockin' little shin dig just a half block up at the amazing Horrorbles. We walked in and there were 5 people in the small bar area and the barkeep... aka the world's worst bartender. As soon as we got in he looked at us with a puzzled face like he wasn't expecting any customers that night. It took him a while to greet us but once he did it was with a "what's the occasion?"... like it was a total freak thing that people had actually come in. I told him that we'd just come from the store up the block and wanted to get some drinks. He said he hadn't heard of the store... even though it's seriously likes 150 paces West of Fitzgerald's... how can you be so unaware of your surroundings? Ah well, that really has nothing to do with this review. First I ask him what one of the *maybe* 8 beers they have on tap (Mighty Arrow) tastes likes, and he just replies "I don't know." I try to dig a little deeper and ask if it's a cider, or lager, or porter or just fish for any kind of descriptive word he can offer. He lets out a bunch of stressed erms and uhms and then says "I dunno. D'ya just wanna try it?". Sure! That would be way more helpful that you just telling me you don't know and blinking a buncha times. After trying the beer, I decided that is tasted a bit too metallic for my tastes and that a bar where the bartender knows NOTHING about the beer is prob a place you should just get a mixed drink in. I went with a peach vodka and soda and my girl Alicia B went with a citron and soda. At this time, these were the only 2 drinks the group had ordered. A few minutes passed and the bartender puts one drink on the bar in front of us and asks Alicia "what did you want again?". She repeats her order and he then turns to me and says "oh, then what did you order?". I repeat my order and he comes back a few minutes later with what is NOT what I ordered... I'm thinking it was just well vodka and soda. I discussed with Alicia and she agreed that her drink was also not what she had ordered... but we didn't bother trying to explain that to him since he never came back after we paid the $19 for the 2 short mystery vodka somethings and one Anchor Steam. He ignored us the rest of the time we were there, besides the few minutes he acknowledged my other friends (we were the only people in the bar at this point) when he humored us by telling us about the bar being in 'A league of their own" and a Bon Jovi video. I almost considered giving up a 3 star rating for this but then I remembered that we were trying to find a late night food option and asked if he knew of anything. He first said that he didn't know anything (reminiscent of when I asked him about the bar's beer selection) but then he replied that there was a great little Mexican food place open 24 hours up the street. The place was Awful (capital 'A' awful) and there was a disgusting hair in our food... I think he set us up. What really kicked this place into the 2 star category was the creepy guy who we *think* may have worked there as he kept going behind the bar, he went through a side door that only employees were using and would leave his little back pack thing over by us while he chatted behind the bar with the world's worst bartender. This guy continually pushed his way through our group of friends, even though the rest of the bar was empty and there was plenty of walking space to not have to push. He literally rammed my friend off his bar stool while he rampaged around the corner of the bar and then he didn't even turn around to acknowledge or apologize. Then, maybe a minute and half later, he pushes through again (even though there's a clear walk way and nothing he needs on our side of the bar) but this time he grabs/gropes Alicia's bare leg (it sort of seemed like he was trying to move her leg as to to uncross them... and she was wearing a skirt) and then creepily smirked. Gross. We decided to down our awful drinks, round up the group, and get the f*ck outta there. Not cool. I'll never go back to the Sidebar portion of Fitzgerald's but I would consider going to the main Fitzgerald's for a show, since based off the ravings of my friends and the other reviews, my experience was (thankfully) not a typical one.
People really jam into this place for the live music. They have a sister restaurant attached that will deliver you New Orleans style grub. My suggestion is if you want a table arrive 30 mins before the band is scheduled to start. Very friendly staff and crowd and always great music.
I've only lived in the area for a couple years, and I hadn't heard of Fitzgerald's till a friend invited me to come listed to his co-worker's husband's band (is that 3 or 4 degrees?). Anyway, the place was packed. The band wasn't for me, but I still had a pretty good time. I got there a bit late, so all the tables were filled, and the area surrounding the bar was pretty crowded. At first I was standing near the bar up front close to the stage; it was a bit awkward because I didn't want to be part of the show, and people sitting at the bar seemed to get a bit annoyed that we were standing at the bar semi-blocking their view (HELLO... IT"S A BAR!). I felt more comfortable once I was able to move a bit further toward the back of the bar. There was more room and fewer people sitting on a bar stool attempting to watch the band. My only bad experience other than the band's genre of music, was the lead singer's attitude. The bar runs from the side of the stage to the back of the room, and the lead singer of the band thought everyone should be giving him full attention. It's a great venue, but it's a bar, and good bands realize when they're playing in a bar, it's not going to be totally quiet; drinks are being made; orders are being given, etc. I would go back to see another band, as long as I knew the band or style of music in advance. The band's Smooth Jazz sound wasn't for me, but I'll definitely be going back to Fitzgerald's in the near future to give it another shot.
