I had high expectations after reading the reviews... Dinner was ok. I had a salad and my husband has the broasted chicken. Service was good. I won't go out of my way to return.

We ate at the Great Escape when we were staying at a local hotel and ready to fly out of O’Hare. We loved it so much that we stopped on our way from Central Illinois to Milwaukee. My husband loves their Chicken Pot Pie!!
