Hermann’s Bar & Grill

Why You Should Visit

Hermann’s Rest-A-While, located right on the Fox River, has been family owned and operated since the 1950’s. This Illinois bar has a very northern feel, and with their rustic decor, and their small and cozy atmosphere, Hermann’s is perfect for both their location and clientele. Their small local appeal makes them an ideal hideout sanctuary to escape from the hustle and bustle. Though technically located in Port Barrington, Hermann’s is actually in a small subdivision called Fox River Valley Garden’s.

When the state of Illinois legalized video gaming in 2013, Hermann’s Rest-A-While was the first location to sign up with Awesome Hand Gaming. This brought in five video gaming machines for Hermann’s patrons to try their luck. Additionally, they have boating, fishing, ice fishing, and snowmobiling. These activities have always drawn in large crowds from around the area. During the summer months, they also have a large motorcycle and classic car crowd, as Hermann’s Rest-A-While is right along their routes.

Hermann’s offers plenty of food including pizza and hot pretzels all day, burgers until 5pm, and homemade chili in the winter so guests can warm up. With less hustle and bustle than many other bars, Hermann’s Rest-A-While is known for their great guests and staff; people come in for the wonderful company. They also have a jukebox and dartboards so their guests can listen to music toss a few darts. Next time you’re in the area, come experience the peaceful getaway of Hermann’s Rest-A-While!
