Hackney's on Lake
Fabulous meal for our party of 5. Always fun and always yum. Thank you Hackney’s for everything!
Restaurant was clean and pretty quiet. We both enjoyed our burgers. Would definitely go back.
this place is an institution a true legend. I love the patty melt and the giant German beers. Kids love the game room. Repeat …they have a video arcade for the kids.
The kids meals all come with a scoop of ice cream at the end.
We have loved Hackney's for literally decades! Don't miss the onion brick!
The food was great and the service was even better. The quality and quantity of food for the price you can’t beat.
Everything was good, service a little slow but that was ok. Ran out of dessert by 7:30 ... really wanted pumpkin pie!
Hackneys never disappoints and the staff made us feel so welcome. BJ? Was so warm and efficient- such excellent customer service! Hamburger and onion rings as tasty as I remember. Keep us the excellent tradition!!
This place is known for their burgers but as the server asked how I wanted mine cooked and I said medium. It came out well done and the server agreed it looked dry. They got me a new a one and it came out well done, again. The server saw and said “it must be the way they’re smoking them.” I couldn’t send it back again because the rest of my family would’ve been done with dinner so I just ate a dry, well done burger. My partners was medium well at best and he also ordered it medium. It has slight pink. “Famous burgers” but can’t cook them.
Always great food!
I have been going to Hackney's on Lake since I was a freshman at Northwestern in 1965. It has been several years since I was there. The burgers were very good. The fries a bit soggy. The birthday ice cream sundae was passable without much fudge. I would go back to it when I visit the Evanston area,
Burgers and Rubens were great…
Not the same Hackneys. Burgers were over cooked and OVER priced.
Good food. Charming, nostalgic atmosphere, and very poor waitress.
Disappointed on this visit. Booth we were seated in was dirty. Stuff on the back where someone with "greasy kids stuff" had seated and rubbed it off. Table was actually sticky. Waited an enormous amount of time for our food. Food was luke warm not hot when it arrived. Last visit to Hackney's for a long time.
The food is always good. Service was a little slow this time. I know the service industry is suffering.
Much fewer customers in the restaurant than we would "typically" see on a Sunday evening, but Hackney's never disappoints!
Very good, great service, good food and some music
The place is so retro it is chic again. It is all about the burgers. Great place for a relaxed dinner that is kid friendly as well.
Service was good
Always enjoy the Brick of onion rings ordered 2 to start. Had Hackney Burgers and the reuben sandwich....
Dont think we can blame this on Covid or maybe we just misordered. If you're in the mood for a good burger, they do that well. Anything else, not so much. Wife's Turkey burger was awful, sweet potato fries tasteless, and my chicken avocado melt was maybe fair. I know the place is nostalgic, but not an update since 1975. PJ our waitress was the one bright spot. Super nice and on the ball.
Great food and service, as usual. I would like it even more if one could substitute a garden salad for fries.
I was pleasantly surprised at the additional menu options. (Haven’t been there in awhile.) The wait staff was friendly and attentive. My spinach-berry salad was delicious! Perfect for a warm summer day!
Outdoor dining- perfect!!
Loose interpretation of “caramelized onions”
Always great food you can count on
So sad. We dined at Hackney’s after many years and it was really subpar. I want to give them a break because Covid must have been very tough on them. No air conditioning, and our server completely messed up our order (just burgers) after waiting over an hour between our onions and the burgers hitting the table. Sorry to say the onions weren’t what they used to be either. Sigh. Used to love this place back in the day.
Hackney's on Lake did not serve the food as efficiently or cooked as well as at Hackney's on Harms.
Had a very good dinner at always reliable Hackney's. Great onions & sandwiches. Had an interesting cocktail called "Not a Kiddie Cocktail". Either the soda was flat or they forgot to add it. The flavor was good but nothing special.
It was good as always. Only disappointment was the onion loaf. It was definitely too crispy, almost to the point of being burnt. The fries and burgers were great as well as the service.
Overall very good. Two burgers came a lot more well done than expected.
We ate outside on a beautiful July 4th. Our waiter was nice and attentive until we got our food. Then he disappeared. We sat there for 30 min after we ate the meal and nobody could find him. We called the manager over and he gave us two Lepracon pies, which was chocolate mint/choc ice cream in oreo crust- delicious! We never did see our waiter again. The manager said maybe he got pulled to inside of the restaurant. Overall, pleasant night.
I always enjoy eating outdoors at the Hackney's restaurant on Lake Street in Wilmette.
Last night the temperature was moderate, and eating outdoors was a very enjoyable
experience. My Cheese Quesadillas were very good. I also ordered French fries.
I have always really liked Hackney's French fries.
I have enjoyed the Hackney's experience for many decades, and will expect to enjoy
this for many years to come.
The soft drinks were not good. We sent them back. Good was good
Family reminiscent gathering
We had to wait 30 minutes after our reservation. Everyone had reservations. They should eliminate reservations if they can not accommodate them
Great burgers, great o ion ring loaf and great service was well worth the 30 mile drive
We had a wonderful meal and an outstaning server, Oscar, who made the evening wonderful for us.
We were stuck in traffic on our way home to Wisconsin from the Shedd Aquarium so we decided to stop for dinner. LOVED that we were able to make a reservation as we had 3 kids with us and it was a Friday night. Food and service were very good, great kids menu and they had a game room. Decor was that of an old supper club so I would not call it modern, but it was perfect for us.
