You can't beat Hackneys on Lake. Ambiance is comfy, bar one of the best and the menu is really good. Burger on dark rye with famous brick onion rings and a cold Schlitz! Doesn't get better.

Being on the Hackney e-mail list, sometimes you get specials. For Valentine's Day, they had a petite filet mignon special with grilled veggie kabob, a twice baked potato and either a soup or a salad for $18.95. Why not? This Hackney's on Lake St. has...More
