Stanley’s Ale House & Restaurant
In 2011 Scott Stanley wanted to leave the corporate restaurant world and bring something different to the town he grew up in. He created a place with great food and the best beers in town before anyone had even heard for craft beers. Today he and his wife Dawn offer 22 draft beers, many other beers from local Chicagoland breweries, multiple Tvs and a Cheers atmosphere. Their extensive and creative food menu keeps guests coming back to try different things on a regular bases.
When Scott is in the building he loves talking beers and helping guests find the “perfect” brew for their taste.
“We always give you the highest marks and we always recommend you to others. The food is great, I always like the beer choices, Dawn and Scott are great, and we look forward to the new look when you re-open and unveil. Also Sue really appreciates that she can get broccoli instead of chips or fries with her meal.”
“Tara is always great when we come for lunch, as busy as she is at the bar and with the booths. We both had burgers this time, and we loved them, but we have always enjoyed many of the things on your menu. And we also like that you have a loyalty card for the slots, too.”
