Default Stockholm's in Geneva, IL

This place is nice. Like a Chicago tavern/bar. They seem to be a little ambitious with their menu. NY Strip and halibut were both overdone. But the steak risotto was excellent. The beer sucks, though. I just really liked the atmosphere.

Has anyone been here?
I was so wrong when I said the beer was pretty good here. It doesn't matter what style of beer you order. It all tastes the same - a bit sour. It must be the yeast. That is my guess. Could it be the equipment? The brewer probably harvest his yeast and uses it in all his batches.
The food is pretty good, and I love the atmosphere.
Damn! I really want the beer to be good. I really want to like this place.
What do you think?

Never been to that bar but I have been to Geneva. Beautiful town. I used to hang out there when I was in the area for concerts at Alpine Valley. I just remember sleeping in the parking lot of a pizza place right on the lake.

It is a very nice town on the Fox River. Many "Haves" live there.
