Joined a friend who is a Libertyville native for lunch there this past Sunday and was very impressed.

It is a good size place for the small town, with a very tall ceiling, and a large bar...mostly set off by the beautiful, tall back bar. It looks like the bar for bartenders. Wide work area, plenty of room, lots of taps.

They had a great cross section of brews on their tap list, and an equally encompassing selection in bottles. Everything from Left Hand Milk Stout, Sprecher Abbey Triple to Emmets Saison and some good local Two Brothers products.

The bottle list had some Cantillon, which is as far as I really needed to go. It was a great surprise, and I enjoyed it.

The food was good. Nothing overwhelming, but I had some steak tacos that hit the spot, as well as everyone else in our party was very happy with what they ordered, from burgers to our 7 year old companion enjoying her chicken strips greatly.

Service was great. The server really knew the food menu, and beer menu, and was very informative and listened well. Big props.

I will return to the Firkin...I will make a point of it. Great spot.
