You can't go wrong. Great service, daily food and drink specials. Sunday Bloody Mary bar. Inside or on the patio it's a comfortable casual atmosphere. Come early when the Cubs are playing!

PJ's is very popular in sycamore. It offers a friendly environment with good food. They specialize in comfort food such as good hamburgers.

The food & service were great at this very typical pub across from the historic courthouse. I had the Italian Beef which was yummy & we shared the onion rings (which were more like onion straws). Try the ranch dressing on them. Very good!

A very fairly priced eatery and bar with good quality offerings. Can get noisy, but you can't beat the location.

This is a local restaurant/bar, with great food, and great company. The do have a street party in the summer. You can eat out on the patio also in the summer. Extremely popular in the town of Sycamore, located on Rt. 64. Great service also.

Brothers Paul and John have a good thing going, here. Very popular among locals and those passing through Sycamore on route 64 across from the county courthouse. Good food at good prices.

This place is good for casual dining. It has a varied menu and has everything from appetizers to salads to sandwiches. It's mostly a bar, but there are rooms off to the side where I'm comfortable bringing our granddaughter. In the right weather they also...More
