I checked out the Flossmoor Station the night before Dark Lord Day w/ witbier, his girlfriend and Phatz.

Atmosphere - The place has character a nice spacious bar and enclosed patio area. The old train station has a certain charm - The wood and long hall w/ seating reminds you of the way it probably was way back when. There are plenty of places to sit, relax and have an ale w/ a few friends. The only downside I noticed was the noise factor. It was extremely busy and that must have added to that, though.

Service - The service was pretty standard- efficient and generally friendly w/ a decent basic beer knowledge.

Food - The pub fare is tasty and well made w/ pricing that is reasonable and the portions are very large.

Quality - I had no problemms with quality here- everthing I tasted was fresh and the overall feel of the place kept with this standard.

Selection - The selection was good also, I tasted some very good ale and lagers. I found the mainstays to be well made also and they had several seasonals to bolster the array of beers on tap. The Killer Kowalski was great and they also had a Red, Brown, Wheat, and two different fruit beers along w/ Gandy Dancer, the honey ale and Milky Way stout.

Overall value - The place is comfortable, the food and beer is decent and the service is better than average. The pricing seems reasonable for what you get so I would not mind returning to Flossmoor Station if I get the chance again.

It's been more than a few years since I've been here and returned because of a gift certificate I was given a year and a half ago.

Vibe- Still cool because what's not to love about a historic train station and the mystique?

Quality- I ordered a cup of chili that was quite good, but the breakfast burger tasted like a char broiled frozen patty hastily thrown together. The two beers I had were marginal at best.

Service- Inattentive and hurried like they couldn't wait to clock out.

Selection- Full menu with many options and items to choose from.

Food- The quality of the items I had while not terrible weren't worth the money spent. What happened to this place over the years?

Always busy crowd, beers are varied and tasty, so is food. Staff changes somewhat, as in the Brewers and bartenders. their Bourbon aged beers are worth the wait.
Parking is slightly tricky depend time of day.
