What makes Chessie’s unique from other restaurants?

Without a doubt it is our service, incredible menu and the welcoming charm and history of the restaurant itself. Chessie’s was built around Barrington’s historic train depot that was brought to the Ice House Mall and made it into the home of Chessie’s. A 1920 Illinois Commuter Train car serves a Chessie’s dining car and outside of the restaurant and on the Mall grounds sits a full size Chesapeake & Ohio Caboose Car. Inside of our lounge is a miniature train that runs on request.
