Firearms and Family Friendly Resturaunts

Don’t you hate it when you are out for a meal and the restaurant has a no guns sign on the door?  You have to trek back to your car to secure your firearm.  I encourage people to conduct business with firearms friendly establishments.

Over the past three years, Firearm Mentor classes have been held at various venues.  The best venues we have seen are the following:

Woodfire Tavern

Former Gridley Grill restaurant on the corner of Rt. 83 and Gilmer reopened its doors to Pub 83 in April 2017. Pub83 reinvigorated the space to cater to contemporary casual dining, featuring pizza, burgers, sandwiches, wraps and salads. The dining room is family friendly, and the bar has additional large screen T.V.’s for a sports-pub atmosphere. Pub83 was the much needed family friendly restaurant in Long Grove.

They relaunched their restaurant concept to include chops, BBQ + pizza as highlighted specialties.

Union Ale House

Family owned and operated, you’ll find brothers Jimmy and George and even Mama Union behind the bar, stopping to check on your table, or rooting for their favorite Chicago teams. Union Ale House has been recently remodeled and run by the same family that owns Rocky Vander’s in Prospect Heights.

The menu features many mouth-watering dishes including amazing specials like award winning house specialty pizza and sandwiches.

All new first time carry out orders through our website qualify for a 10% discount and $5

off for every $100 spent. Enjoy!

Rocky’s American Grill

Lively hangout featuring a meat-centric American menu, games on flat-screens & regular DJs & bands.

The friendly neighborhood restaurant is known for serving delicious food including their famous appetizers, salads, specialty pizzas, hand-packed burgers, pork chops, fried chicken and more.

Great drink specials are also available daily along with video gaming in the lounge area.

The owner, George Sellis, is an entrepreneur and the restaurants that he owns are all firearm friendly.  Our classes meet in one of the banquet rooms to conduct the academic portion of the class.  When we break for lunch, we just go into the dining room and have a great meal.  In fact, I have never had a bad meal at any of these places.

None of these have the “NO GUNS” sign and patrons may carry a concealed firearm.

I encourage you to try out one or all three of these.
