Our first time here, celebrated our 30th anniversary. They had a nice seat in the train car room reserved for us. They did not acknowledge our anniversary, which was a bit of a disappointment. Our waitress was super attentive for the first 10 minutes then disappeared for the next twenty. So we waited 30 minutes to put our order in. My wife enjoyed the ribs and I had the tilapia, which was quite meaty. The cream sauce however was quite heavy and drenched the fish, defeating the purpose of trying to eat health. The chocolate tower dessert was very good. Prices were quite reasonable. MoreOpenTable Diner -
The menu was limited, which I knew ahead of time but it was painfully limited. Four entree choices for adults and two for children. The restaurant had only one large "banquet" room for diners for the evening, on the second floor, and it was in no way intimate or romantic for a Valentines dinner. We were seated right next to the bar and the severs congregated at the bar to socialize until needed...tacky. Food was served quickly and was decent but nothing special. I wouldn't return for a "romantic" dinner if it's going to be held in a banquet room. Millrose missed the mark on romance for Valentine's Day. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Slyce Coal Fired Pizza Company offers an amazing pizza as well as other menu items. It takes time to fuel up a coal fired pizza, so no lunch hours, but it makes for a delightful dinner choice in Wauconda. The pizza crust is the perfect mid-ground between thin and thick, setting the stage for fresh ingredients that wow the taste buds. It isn't just the pizza that is incredible - try the artichoke dip, Italian stuffed mushrooms or lemon basil caramelized onion and herb wings. The coal-fired oven at Slyce Coal Fired Pizza Company makes all the difference.
Speaking of fresh, look at the fresh herb garden on the patio which makes the patio seating fragrant and relaxing. From the delicious and unique small plates to the delicious tiramisu for dessert, it would be difficult to find a better place to dine than Slyce Coal Fired Pizza Company.More
