Enjoying the fresh homemade flavors at The Grill House in Northbrook, Illinois

**Disclosure: I did receive a complimentary meal in order to facilitate this review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own.

A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I explored what has immediately become a local favorite: the Grill House in Northbrook, Illinois. The setting is comfortable, inviting and very welcoming for families. The menu incorporates family favorites and Greek flavors. With such a diverse menu and relaxed surroundings, the Grill House is a perfect places for families to get together and enjoy a meal.

Comfortable and friendly atmosphere at Grill House in Northbrook, Illinois

During our visit, we met with co-owner Lou Liagridonis. Lou has a passion for providing fresh and quality meals as well as being a true part of the community. Lou's knowledge of food is evident. He ensures that the food at the Grill House is made out of quality yet simple ingredients so that customers can comfortably understand what is in the food they are eating. Such a relief! Lou works with customers in regards to food allergies. The menu does offer gluten free options, however, the kitchen is not gluten free. I really admire the transparency Grill House offers in food options.

The Grill House uses their own recipes. The vast majority of items are made in house and others are made locally including the spinach pie. I noticed shells-n-cheese on the children's menu and inquired about the cheese sauce. The sauce is made in house of real cheese, a great example of the care the restaurant puts into food preparation! Another childhood favorite -- chicken tenders -- are also made freshly in house. As a mom, it can be a challenge to find a quick meal for your family without all of the junk. Now, I know I can go to Grill House.

Yummy hummus plate with fresh pita!
Oven roasted chicken, gyros, salads, wraps, burgers, hot dogs, soup, ribs, souvlaki, spinach pie and so much more, everyone can find something on the menu. If you have been reading awhile, you know I love hummus. So, I had to order some! The Grill House sources its pita locally from Devanco Foods. Pita and hummus were both great, plus I had some left to bring home for a snack!

I also ordered the Oven Roasted Grecian Chicken. I LOVE Grecian Chicken. This meal included Greek potatoes, roasted vegetables and pita. The chicken was delicious and perfectly moist. The Greek potatoes were AMAZING! I have ordered them at other restaurants and found them a bit on the dry side. The Grill House's were soft and a bit moist. I really enjoyed them! The chicken is also locally sourced from Harrison's Poultry in Glenview.

chicken gyros and the Greek salad

We also tried chicken gyros and the Greek salad. With the Greek salad, we had the house balsamic dressing which is made in house. The chipotle dressing is also made in house. The salad and gyros were both tasty. We were very happy with the portion sizes and had some to take home.

lemon egg soup

Grill House also has a soup of the day. We sampled the lemon egg soup of the day. It was heavier than expected but delicious.

As you can see, we had quite a tasting! We enjoyed everything we sampled and already have eyes on our next visit to the Grill House! I think I will try the falafel sandwich or the baby kale caesar salad. Can't wait!
