This is a fun place back in my hometown. It's a restaurant/bar on the Fox River in McHenry. They have a lot of docks where you can park your boat. They also have a ginormous patio that overlooks the river where you can hang out, enjoy the sun, and enjoy some nachos and a cold beer. The menu is pretty extensive for a bar, and the beer selection isn't bad for the area. There are lots of different sandwiches, appetizers, as well as some chicken and seafood platters. If you're out boating on the Fox River, definitely stop by Vickie's.
Been goin there for years. The waitstaff is good, and the food is top-notch. The new head-chef Kevin is quite awesome. Earlier this year the building was remodeled and I must say they did a great job. My first recomendation would be the sour-dough italian beef (please come hungry because it's huge!!) and my second rec would be the Kahuna burger (it's a burger w/ BBQ pulled pork n coleslaw on it.!!!!). DELICIOUS!!! I always sit at the bar, because Joe the bartender is very nice to talk to. ASK HIM TO JUGGLE AND HE WILL.!!!! HE IS SERIOUSLY A PRO.!!!!! Vickies Rocks...!!
Nice place during the boating season. Pretty decent food, nothing fancy, pretty good portion size.
I have no idea what the bad reviews on here are about! We booked the deck area for a group of 65 people on Saturday and it couldn't have been any better! Fast service, good food, friendly wait staff - couldn't ask for much more! Thanks Vickie!
What a fun place! Located on the Fox River, they do have boat parking (which is awesome, because otherwise I'd never go).
Once you walk up to the restaurant, it's seat yourself inside and outside. They have a good beer selection to start off with, and when you sit inside they bring popcorn to your table.
Their food selection is pretty extensive, from sandwiches to pizza to steaks. I've never had anything there I didn't like!
As everyone says, the place is a lot of fun during the summer, but they've changed things up a bit all the time and have an AWESOME Sunday breakfest buffet. Just got back and had to write about it.! The buffet is huge, and, they have a chef making omelets, french toast, and carving prime rib and ham. Everything was great, and, the staff was very attentive and fast. The buffet chef was great too, her omlettes are great!!! I've heard the Friday seafood buiffet is really good too, we plan to check that out next week.
We love going to Vickie's on a warm summer day. Great sandwiches and electric palm trees. Bright umbrella's along the river with good service. Last time I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was very good
We had the spinach artichoke appetizer which is the best I have had. I had the chicken ceasars salad which was very good. My husband had the reuben. He said it was a little to heavy on the dressing but overall was good. Service was good and we enjoy coming here for the outside deck.
I loved that is on the Fox River. They have a great macaroni
and cheese. I don't know if it is on the regular menu or just
for the kids but ask for it and you will receive a real treat
