StoneWood Ale House is the perfect balance between a classic restaurant and a great bar. Since we are independently owned, we are one of the few restaurants that still believes in that “personal touch”. Our guests love the warm stone fireplaces and cozy booth seating. They love the smell of our wood fire grill. They love our large 80 item menu filled with flavorful Slow Roasted Prime Rib, Wood Fired Specialties, Seafood & Pasta and our famous Ale House Burgers. Our menu items have won many awards in Schaumburg. We pride ourselves on having the coldest draft beer possible, served at an icy 31.5 °F! And what we pride ourselves on the most is the personal care and commitment that our guests have come to expect truly making StoneWood Ale House the place to be.

BAKERSFIELD showcases great food made from scratch. Having sister-concept Standard Market—an outpost for top quality meats, seafood, bakery, and produce—just across the street provides our chefs a bounty of fresh, seasonal ingredients to use in BAKERSFIELD’s open kitchen.<br />Whether you choose to watch the action in the kitchen from anywhere in the main dining area; relax next to the fireplace on the heated patio; explore our floor-to-ceiling, glass-enclosed wine room; or enjoy handcrafted cocktails at our well appointed bar, BAKERSFIELD is sure to provide an exciting, delicious, and unique dining experience every time.

"Love the place and service but they have a hard time serving my food hot especially mashed potatoes.
Server reacted quickly and brought substitute potatoes but they were also lukewarm.
This is not first time but I love the place otherwise.

Francesca’s Amici opened in July 1999 and is the 6th restaurant in "The Family of Francesca Restaurants", bringing downtown Elmhurst a restaurant with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, good, rustic cooking, friendly service and fair prices. The menu features the zesty earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. Located in the heart of downtown Elmhurst, the restaurant is centrally located to Downtown Chicago and the Western Suburbs. The design features a rolled-mesh ceiling, warm woods, colorful slate and geometric light fixtures. Striking black and white photographs of rural Italian life by Paul Elledge line the walls to create a comfortable, decidedly urban setting.

A place not to be missed on a regular basis."
