Happy Father's Day to all you fathers out there! Although money is tough due to the job situation, we dipped into savings for a special Father's Day dinner. Instead of Yorktown Mall's food court as originally planned, we chose Miller's Ale House in Lombard, which is right across the street from the mall.
The Ale House, as we used to call it, is not a new dining experience for me. Years ago when I was in entertainment with Disney at the Parks in Orlando, the Ale House was a favorite hangout joint. I remember sipping cherry cokes and eating while watching Blackhawks games on the screens because it was the only place in Orlando I knew of that would honor requests to watch out-of-area games. Fast forward to nearly 20 years later and I am bringing my wife and kids to an Illinois location of one of my faves. The good thing is the interior looks the same (many, many, many T.V. screens) and the menu still has the same great affordable eats such as burgers, sandwiches, steaks and other comfort food (although sadly, the baked seafood platter I remember from my parade days is not on the menu any longer).
Instead of Orlando Magic, Tampa Bay Lightning and Buccaneer bling on the walls, Miller's proudly displays the Hawks, Cubs, Bears, Bulls and Sox.
Back to the Ale House, I give it five out of five steaks for great food, affordable prices and memories of my days with Disney. Thanks for the read, and take note of the weekly specials below as of June 2017. We'll definitely be back on a Tuesday night.
