The Gambler, located in the heart of downtown McHenry, is a friendly sports bar with an intimate neighborhood feel. The current owner has owned and operated the establishment since 2004, however The Gambler has been there for over 30 years, and the building itself is over 100 years old. The building has had minor renovations and modernizations, but has successfully maintained its historical integrity.
