Love this place! Food and service is great. The charcuterie board and the Poutine dish are incredible
Always a great place to eat.
Always a fantastic meal and cocktails~ really do a great job!
Food was amazing. Service was first class. Their Bison burger is the best burger in at least 300 miles.
Delightful, unique menu .Friendly, attentive wait-persons.
I’m sure the grades would go up once normal dining is able to be used. The food is worth it.
Excellent food and service. One of our favorite restaurants!
We had a great brunch at Hardware. They did a great job of setting up the outdoor area for lots of dinners to eat comfortably and spaced appropriately apart.
The food , atmosphere and staff were wonderful . We had a delicious family dinner with a lot of laughs
Thank you for making our experience wonderful and our kids are still talking about it
Cocktails and food were amazing! It’s a must try!!
Excellent food and service
Amazing as always
The burnt ends with mashed potatoes were amazing!! Burger was juicy and tasty, just excellent. The kids meal, not the best. Hot dog was fine (if your kid likes smoked meat) but the bun was huge and toasted. I wouldn't have even eaten that. Other than that, it was a great experience and I look forward to returning and sitting in the enclosed patio again. Nice atmosphere, good distancing.
Love the new heated patio. I’ll be back
We were in for our friend’s birthday celebration. I choose this place, because I‘be been here once before and I really enjoyed the food and service. If you’re looking for something special you don’t have to look further, this is the place! It’s not just a restaurant, it’s the culinary art place. We ordered a lot of appetizers (my favorite was grilled goat cheese), fried Brussel sprouts are so delicious , meat and cheese board, everything is fresh from their green house. The cocktail menu- you have to take a minute to study it , because it’s a lot of choices and so different from others, my favorite is figgin awesome.
At the end we got the dessert with a candle for our friend and we didn’t even ask for it! I want to thank all the staff for making our time so memorable!
When we were leaving I was already planning another visit!
We love everything about Hardware and will keep coming back. The food is spot on delicious and inventive. The drinks on point with craft distilleries not to mention the whiskey bourbon options are off the charts. Everything you do makes us excited to bring people back again and again. So know this we will shout it out in social media and bring all we know !!!!
Our server Ryan did a fantastic job. The new enclosed patio is perfect. Food and drinks were great.
So have passed by this restaurant several times and glad we finally stopped in.
Food was great "farm to table" with the greenhouse right in view. all the beer and whiskey brewed and distilled on site and a great variety.
Outdoor patio seating under an enclosure. We sat in front of the fireplace.
Food selections are all unique and well prepared. We will go back soon for sure. It was great food, service and the best meal we've had out in awhile.
5Stars all around.
There was a time when I was not such a fan of this restaurant. Although, over time they have moved up to the level I would expect from a Turf Room sister restaurant. We decided to venture out for a "covid modified" dinner. We were not aware that the governor had just placed restrictions on restaurants again and only were permitting outdoor dining...at the end of October...in Illinois. When we got there we were amazed at how well the restaurant had modified their inside dining for Covid. We were disappointed when the gentlemen explained why we couldn't have a high top table in the bar and escorted us onto their patio. They have completely modified a small portion on their patio for heated-tent dining. Not too much different, in my opinion, than sitting inside. Regardless, we had a fantastic dinner! Food and service were amazing. Not dressed for eating in a heated tent, but it was surprisingly quite warm.
The current state of the country is horrific. The fact that restaurants are trying to meet state expectations for safety and their businesses are greatly suffering because of that is tragic. I felt very safe eating in this restaurant and would have felt the same indoors with their safety measures. No question about it, we will try to continue supporting our local restaurants as best we can!!
We have been to Hardware at least eight times. There are always new dishes to enjoy, and they continue to impress. Can't wait to come back.
Food was delicious! We ate on their enclosed patio, which is heated with a roaring fire. Definitely recommend giving Hardware a try.!
Hardware continues to provide a fantastic assortment of dishes without compromising quality. The food is top notch as well as their dedication to the customers. Will definitely return.
Based on Covid changing rules. Again! Everything was great! I made reservations earlier in the week and when new Covid rules hit mid week, Bruce called and made the accommodations. He described the outdoor, 3 season room and we kept our reservation. Everything from service to food was fantastic!
Great freshly prepared selections with many local and/or on property ingredients and preparations. The brisket tacos as an appetizer are a go to for us. as are the home made "ho hos" for dessert. This is our fourth time and have become our go to in the Naperville/Aurora area.
Service is always amazing here. Went with friends. Between us we had the fish and chips, bison burger, skirt steak and ravioli. All meals were awesome! We started with the large charcuterie board, which was also amazing. Thanks for a great meal with fabulous service and a wonderful atmosphere. We will be back soon!
Great food! Korean fried rice was amazing! Teriyaki bacon was great as well.
The food was amazing and tasty as always. The staff was super friendly and attentive.
Food was very good, though a bit pricey. Entrees run about $20-25, but everything is very fresh and food combinations are interesting and different. We had the Mahi, the Brisket [burnt ends] and the Chicken Roulade. Also Brisket Tacos, Poutine and Beer Cheese soup. All was excellent.
Amazing drinks, food, service! Very pleased!
A fun afternoon lunch with friends. The beer snickerbock was delicious as well as the food.
Service, ambiance, and food are spectacular. Perfect place to try something a bit different.
I love all the sustainable elements in this restaurant from the food to the construction. Their black salt butter is incredible. I had the shrimp Caesar and it was delicious. All their in house grown lettuces are so tender and fresh. They even gave me a birthday hoho with bourbon! Yum!
Food was amazing. Sustainable concept was what I was looking for, but was EXTREMELY delighted with the quality of the food & drink options. Super cool atmosphere as well. Highly recommend!
Great place !!
Wish they had more options for vegetarians.
The décor, location, menu options, then the overall atmosphere, and sustainability plan; all brings this establishment to above average. From corner tables with benches to high tops, the patio, or a seat at the bar, you will find comfort. From views of the indoor greenhouse, or the outdoor acreage, the lighting, the simple craftsmanship, the warm and rustic bar depending on which room, yet all tables are good ones. Now for the food...let us talk flavor. From salads to meats smoked on site, every item is flavor packed, veggies fresh and bright. Not my first, though each visit I can hardly wait to return.
Do not let my review be your surmise, thus visit and see for yourself.
The menu can be a little tricky to navigate online, though I promise everyone will find a favorite. Always enjoyed the chicken dishes from the dinner menu, then sat at the bar having ordered a burger and a new favorite was named. Speak of the bar, endless whiskey selections, many homemade, and those signature cocktails will not disappoint. Can I vote; Figgin’ Awesome? Still I falter, that selection of beers always on tap. Take a minute and read about the talented artisans that make Hardware & BBGB the place to go, and learn too their concern for the environment.
We were so happy to stumble upon this place! Our server was very nice and educated us about everything they grow on property. The food was outstanding and the drinks were "figgin awesome" (highly recommend that cocktail)! I wish we lived closer... this would be a regular place for us to visit.
Wonderful meal and great patio!
Other than the fact that it got cold and windy our experience was outstanding. The food was tremendous and the selection of whiskey was unreal. It would be ideal if they could implement wind screens and heaters outside.
Excellent food, has the city menu and vibe in the burbs
