USDA angus steak burger, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, brioche bun, served with fresh cut french fries
Goat Cheese Salad
panko crust goat cheese balls, grilled vegetables, mixed greens, black olive vinaigrette
3 mini tacos, crispy corn shell, sauteed lobster, pico de gallo, queso fresco, sour cream, chipotle sauce
The staff was very cooperative when, after being seated indoors, we said the air conditioning was too cold for us and could we move outdoors? We had a nice table and enjoyed our lunch: shrimp tacos for me, a grilled cheese for my friend. Great fries!
Diminished selection of beers from past years. Very drafty by the door to outside dining space.
Hi Charter, Our beer list has not diminished and we have over 100 beers. Our beer list has changed due to availability. We no longer carry Grimbergen Dubbel since it's not available in the United States. We do have St. Bernardus, Chimay, Maudite, & Westmalle Dubbel. I would challenge you to find another beer list that has 4 dubbels on their list. We love beer!
Food & service was excellent! Really enjoyed our night out!
Everything was bad. From the lack of service to the Moscow mule with no ginger beer….
Hi Randee, thank you for your review. Please before you leave the restaurant let us know that you are dissatisfied. Our commitment starting in 1998 when we opened is to make our guest happy. Our ginger beer is house made and our no. 1 seller also our chef has been with us for over 20 years. Obviously you were upset and please let us make it right. Since we have not heard from you we have refunded your entire meal. Thank you for your previous 5 star review and hope to see you soon.
The new outdoor area is great. Mussels were fresh and delicious.
Great night with family. Very good wine offerings.
Seated immediately, great new outdoor space, very enjoyable
I appreciate the option to book an outside table! Mussels were great; giant pretzel, artichoke hearts, and warm goat cheese were superb. Our only critique of our meals was that we would have appreciated a more substantial bakery-style bun for the burger. Service was friendly and helpful, great experience overall!
The mussels and fish were fresh and delicious. Our server helped us pair our beer and try new selections. Delicious and fun!
Great selection of beers! Food was ok, nothing special.
First visit post pandemic, menu and food didn’t meet previous experiences.
Hi we replied to you previously on 7.19.21 and we have no heard back from you. Our chef has been with us for over 20 years. We have owned the Firkin since it opened in 1998 and value our guest input. Obviously we fell short of your expectations and we look forward to your feed back. Best regards from the Firkin Team.
Very nice ambience, waiter was very nice and polite, however it appears staff was low and the waiter seemed very overwhelmed. As a result it took around 20 minutes to get service after we sat down.
Firkin is always our go-to in Libertyville. Awesome beer and wine selection, and the food is always great. Can't recommend Firkin enough.
Excellent service and great food!
Their beer menu was out of date and said they had a beer they didn’t. Very disappointing.
Excellent food and great service. Great beer list.
Drinks and appetizers are good. Not many main course meals to choose from and those that are there are pricey.
Firkin is always a delight. The service was attentive and cheerful. And the food as always was simply superb. We have loved Firkin for 15 years, every time, every order. Thank you all. I always recommend it to new neighbors and friends.
Food was outstanding. Had shrimp app. Was excellent! Service outstanding. Fabulous server! Very positive experience.
The food is excellent, but what really makes Firkin stand apart from other Downtown Libertyville restaurants is the level of service. Excellent, welcoming, and friending service to all customers.
Another excellent meal at Firkin! Really great service.
Very good, great atmosphere in tent , friendly waitress
Firkin has always been our favorite restaurant - we've lived in Libertyville for over 30 years. Food and drinks are always great and consistent. Atmosphere is lovely. Love the new tent. Service is horrible - service has always been great - but not since reopening. Please add more people - and improve service level!

Lovely place to dine. We will be back. Great beer selection.
Always enjoyed Firkin; as a regular customer over 25 years or so; noticing less on plates for same high price. Had the wild sockeye salmon ($33); disappointed I got 6oz (?) salmon and a small portion of veggies ( cut up strips of bell peppers and 2 stalks of asparagus, cut up strips of onion ) and a lovely sauce over the salmon- that’s it for $33 ??? NOT worth it! No pasta or bread/ butter as everything À la cart. Will think twice in future about coming back for high price and nothing much on the plate!
Enjoyed our dinner in the lovely outdoor venue.
This is one of our go-to restaurants - great drinks and good food. Sometimes we get a dish that is not the greatest, like the over-breaded chicken wings or the kind of boring goat cheese salad, but mostly it’s very good, like the duck meat nachos, the salmon sandwich and the burgers. Love the lights and decorations in the alley outdoor seating - really great ambiance! Wait staff are always friendly and accommodating.
Their outside patio is decorated in numerous lights and its such great ambiance.
The food , service was excellent, we will definitely come back , love it
