Love, love, love this wonderful restaurant. Such a lay back and welcoming environment. The food was sooo rich and flavorful. My tastebuds were jumping for joy. Will definitely return in the Spring and Summer for date with the hubby. Will definitely recommend to friends and love ones More...

The dinner food is wonderful, the staff is great. The brunch leaves a lot to be desired. Only a handful of options, nothing special. They have items on the menu they no longer carry , why is it still on the menu? The shrimp and grits were bland, small portion, and doesn't come with any sides or bread. Over all I love the dinners and sides they serve, but they need to cancel doing a brunch More...

This was my first time here and I was really impressed. The atmosphere was great, drinks were really well crafted and easily accommodated a large group from out of town. Definitely order the ribs and fries, highly recommend! More...

Attended a "whole goat" roast for a holiday party at Frontier. All of the food was amazing, will be back and the service was excellent. The goat was smoked to perfection, and all of the sides provided were great. I particularly enjoyed the boar sliders and the char grilled oysters. Will be definitely be back. More...

I found Frontier on a quick Google search for where to watch the Saints game in Chicago. This place did not disappoint. I love trying what places outside of Louisiana consider “New Orleans style” cuisine. Frontier hits the nail on the head. The red beans, shrimp poboy, and seafood mac were spot on. They even had Zapps chips! Atmosphere was great with a lot of Saints fans in the restaurant and a brass band playing during commercial breaks. All in all, great experience. More...

Strange, unusual, delicious. Frontier is a fun adventure for meat lovers and meal sharers alike. Try something new but prepared in a comfortable way. Great atmosphere - very comfortable and not at all as uptight as you might imagine based on the cuisine.Highly recommend the camel patty melt (although, personally I thought it would taste better on a sweet brioche rather than toasted rye).Everything is a la carte and the only downside is the price.

Quite the place! I had no idea what kind of food the place served, just that it was close to the Chopin Theatre. So what a surprise, when sitting down, to see a full roasted alligator carted by, complete with teeth! Really liked the food, especially the rabbit tamales (sorry Thumper and Peter Cottontail!)

I love Frontier, but the last two times I had a whole meat package our service was extremely below par. It took 45min to get drinks when the restaurant was dead a few weeks ago. Not good.

Our vendor had a private dinner here after a tradeshow. This food was out of this world. We had beef ribs, whole pig and so many appetizer options. For desert they brought out huge chocolate chip cookies and these smore things that were amazing. Will go back next time I am in the City for a tradeshow. The pictures speak for themselves. Great outdoor private event space. More...

Best place for grilled oysters, duck tacos, and wild game roasts. I also recommend their smoked turkey for Thanksgiving, or taking advantage of their whole smoked boar buffet for Fathers Day/Holidays.

This is a Bar BQ oriented restaurant in Chicago where our family had a rehearsal dinner. We were in the separate area that looks like it would be an outdoor patio in summer. It had a big warm fireplace with comfortable seating. The food was very good with smoked ribs and brisket that were cooked to perfection without being overdone. Bartenders and wait staff were very friendly and provided excellent service that made this a memorable occasion. More...

The whole animal experience is completely worth it. Absolutely delicious and you get to taste every part of the animal and how different it can be depending on the cut. The staff brought the boar out, cut it for everyone, and it was served buffet style with sides. Can't wait to go back and try other animals More...

The lamb burger is absolutely delicious...no..for real..delicious! The waitress asked if i had any food allergies (yes I do), THEN I was asked if cross contamination was an issue for me (YES IT IS)! It might not seem like much to you, but for someone like me, with severe allergies, its a big deal. Cross contamination is a question that im never asked about(and find out the hard way). This is an establishment, to me, that cares about the well being of their customers! I stan for excellent customer service. Ill be back!. More...

Tasty sandwiches, the gumbo could served hotter, and it'd be nice if they served something sweet for fans who want dessert. Ideal setting and a fitting band.

Typical Cook county forest preserve. About 40 parking spots, a shelter, one porta potty, etc. Good size grass areas. Right off two largish roads which makes it noisy. But access to excellent foot trails! That's why I gave it 4 stars! More...

The food was delicious and the restaurant is beautiful. Unfortunately we were part of a big party and were placed in a room with 2 other large parties so it was difficult to hear people at the other end of our table. Would definitely go back with a smaller party. More...

The food is great, but the timing was nonexistant. Our entrees come out between 20 and 30 min apart. The first people were done before the last got there food. And somehow people recieved cold meals, even though they were all coming out at different times. Edit: the waitress and manager apologized and explained and were completely lovely. More...
