Lamplighter’s 2nd Floor Patio

Lamplighter Inn Tavern & Grille,

With two levels of outside seating this is a summertime favorite. Great place to bring the family, as the kids can watch the train from the upper deck. Head over on a Friday for their Family Happy Hour with entertainment and specials for you and your family, you can even bring your well mannered four legged members. Located in the heart of Palatine in a historic right across from the train. This is also preferred stop for train/pub crawls.
