They are well known for their carryout Friday fish fry. We started lining up our car on S. Logan Ave as we snaked our way in a line of cars onto the shoulder of Leyton Ave.and into the drive-up window where they took our order...and promptly had us on our way. The line is fast and efficient. The fish, fries and cole slaw were all excellent. You can then head across the street to the Mitchell Field observation parking lot to eat your meal while watching the planes takeoff and land.More

Price of bottle of wine I wanted was great. In looking over menu I asked how thick the steaks were, servers answer was they were all different. I ordered a strip for around $50 dollars and when it came it looked like a flank steak,...1" in middle and tapered to 1/8" at end. I told the server that it didn't even look like a strip and they were charging downtown Chicago prices and serving junk. I'll never eat here again.More

My two cousins from Glenview Illinois desired to experience a true Wisconsin fish fry. We reserved a table at the Packing House, enjoyed great food, and had a great experience. - the old fashions after dinner topped off the evening!

Good business dinner with party of 7. Service was very attentive and food was above average. Bacon wrapped water chestnuts were delish and various steak dinners were all very good.

I used to frequent the Packing House for many years, Due to illness, I was unable to get out and about. Now after many years, I was able to come back to one of my favorite places of all time. I was not disappointed. If...you want to feel treated like your someone special, like royalty, then this is the place to come. It's even better than it was before and I never would have thought that to be possible! The staff is outstanding, friendly, warm and caring. The entertainment is a wonderful mix. Something for everyone Weds through Sat. This is the only place I will brave temps in the teens and snow all around to be. Come alone, come with a group, or just someone special. You're sure to have a wonderful, memorable time. Katie B.More

Wednesday night offers prime rib, so we opted to go on our actual anniversary. Went a little early to enjoy a drink and relax. Drinks were good and staff was friendly, however, they were also "working the tables" in the lounge, A bartender bartending would...be nice. We both ordered prime rib, baked potato and one had salad and one had the strogganoff soup, Soup was fantastic! Prime rib tender and delicious, best ever!More

Also very convenient location by the airport. The food was very good and my sister just loved having a delicious bandy old fashioned. Classis Wisconsin support club and the shredded onions were to die for.

Everything was excellent. We stopped here to meet friends the night before we had to catch a flight. It did not disappoint us. The appetizers were great along with our entrees. The service was outstanding. It was nice to go back to an establishment we...had not been at for a while and it still was just as good as we remembered.More
