This bar has atmosphere in spades. 1940s retro if that's your thing, it's a very cool place, From the vintage bar to the Schlitz breweriana everywhere, it's a classic. Service was great, the draft Schlitz was poured from a vintage tap handle, and Irish coffee was served in a fancy glass mug. The draw here is the classic family recipe tavern food, including more exotic seafood such as frog legs and turtle, which they have neon signs for, likely the only ones in Illinois. I was told the turtle is harder to source these days, and it wasn't on the menu tonight. The frog legs were very tasty, with a light batter. Mushrooms and chicken were also good, the real star was the homemade dill tartar sauce that was so delicious I was dipping fries in it. The fries were better than Rip's, even if the chicken wasn't quite in the same league, it was still good. Overall, Lanuti's is a great place for a meal or a drink, in a classic tavern setting.
Went here on New Years Eve. We ordered pizza and broiled scallops. Pizza was inedible. Crust was raw and toppings were worse than on a Tombstone pizza. I would have rather eaten a Totino's $1 pizza than this. Scallops were very bad as well. We asked for them to be broiled. Tasted like they came out of the micro-wave. It was the worst $50 meal ever
Step back into the era of BIG BANDS and black top tables & red chairs...that's Lanuti's. Homemade Cole slaw was excellent. Good lemonade. They were out of turtle. ..boooo. I really wanted to try it. We got the fried chicken. Fresh..hot.... d lish. Wi Fi password is top secret? ? Hmm
