Atmosphere-a little bit of a dive with some nice, older wood work. A little dead on a Sunday afternoon but a nice quiet place to enjoy a couple.

Quality-beers were solid. We had the IPA, Citra-Hopped Cream Ale and Munich-Style Lager.

Service-it was dead, but the bartender kept our glasses full and allowed us samples of each beer we wanted to try.

Selection-They had about six house beers on tap with a half-dozen or so more guest taps. Bottle/can selection was very good as well. Many new ones to try and old ones to revisit.

Food-They only have a few small bags of chips, etc. Carryout/delivery is welcome from surrounding areas.

Value-House beers were fairly reasonable at 5-6 dollars a pint. Guest beers seemed a little pricey.

Overall-A nice location just off the bike path. We'll be back every 4-6 weeks for a couple quiet beers in a nice setting.

One of my favorite local places to go to. There is no kitchen because that is where they are brewing. Low lit atmosphere is perfect for just going in and having a couple of beers and enjoying them without all the raucous of annoying people talking about nothing. Large choice of craft beers definitely makes it easy for everyone to find something that they will like.

Lunar is a cool little corner neighborhood bar in the sleepy little 'burb of Villa Park. Walking in you're greeted by a long, old, wood bar with wood framed coolers running the entire length. A few tables line the opposite wall with a few more thrown in the back around a tiny stage. Tin signs cover the walls along with advertised beer prices such as Little Kings And Mickeys for $1.50. This place has that great, old school, worn in feeling like it has accumulated decor over the years instead of packing new junk in to make it seem old.

There are 5 Lunar taps that rotate and a handful (10?) of quality guest taps. Double Trouble, Grand Teton Oud Bruin, Boulevard Saison-Brett and Imp. Pilsner,and Bruery White Oak are a few of the taps available on my last visit. Lunar's own taps were Moondance, Cream Ale, Eclipse Stout on nitro, and a couple others. A good all around selection, many of which are not seen often on tap around Chicago. The bottle list is also impressive with some very hard to find bottles available.

Service is always great at Lunar. The bartenders are very engaging and friendly while more than willing to talk shop. There's not a friendlier bunch anywhere. No food is served, besides some spicy pickled eggs on the counter, but you can bring in your own. I'd recommend a trip out to Lunar for anyone within reasonable distance. The vibe makes this place but the quality taplist doesn't hurt either.
