The atmosphere is lively with strings of colorful hanging lights. Food is good and they have a pretty extensive craft beer selection. The tables are close together and it can be very noisy on a busy night. If there is no room at the bar to sit and wait for a table there is really no room to wait.

We celebrated my daughter's birthday here. It was a Sunday night so there was no wait for a table. I had the grass fed burger which was just okay. Prices are reasonable for Libertyville, food is just okay. My daughter had the black bean burger and said it was excellent. Both of our fries were cold.

We enjoyed the escargot and lobster mac at Firkin. We found the atmosphere dark, crowded and noisy (Saturday night). We would go back again, but it would not be our first choice.

This was our first visit to Firkin and it was fantastic! It was a Monday evening and we were seated immediately. My wife had one of the specials, Cilantro Lime Mahi-Mahi and I had the Chicken Teriyaki Fettuccine. Both dishes were excellent! Our server was very attentive and friendly. We'll be back!

The couple of times we've been here, it has been loud (which attests to its popularity) and the service has been indifferent. Both times our servers gave the impression that it was an imposition to have to serve us. I realize when a restaurant is crowded, it can be hard on the servers, but friendliness is the most important tool... More
