Private Group Dining with a Scottish Twist
There's no need to go to Scotland to enjoy the atmosphere of a Scottish tavern for private group dining in Romeoville. McWethy's Tavern at the Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville, IL offers the great selection of food and drinks you would expect from the Old World right here in the U.S. This establishment is run by the McWethy family, which first immigrated to the United States in the 1600s. Robert Macwithy Macrory was the first to arrive, and over several generations, the Macwithy name evolved to McWethy. Just after the Civil War, the first McWethy arrived in Illinois from New York State, and there, the family started the Mistwood Golf Club, McWethy's Tavern, and the Great Hall at Mistwood.
McWethy's Romeoville restaurant and the associated businesses are still owned by the family. Its kitchen is under the command of Chef Mark Angeles, who brings his unique take on Scottish cuisine to the establishment. Like all expert chefs, Mr. Angeles makes sure to create dishes that are familiar, yet are also distinctly his own. From an appetizer of freshly-made pretzel nuggets to shepherd's pie and ale-battered fish and chips, you can be sure you'll enjoy the taste of Scotland offered by the chef's fine cooking.
Like other establishments of this type, there are two distinct areas to enjoy: The tavern and the bar. At the tavern, you'll have access to a huge array of Scottish food. Along with traditional favorites like the shepherd's pie, you have the chance to enjoy house-made pappardelle, steaks, pork chops, lamb shanks, and sides ranging from mashed potatoes to hand-cut truffle fries. In the bar, enjoy unique ales like Brickstone Hop, Sip, and I'm Drunk; Thatcher's Gold Cider from the UK, and standard beer brands like Heineken. Of course, hand-crafted cocktails are also available, such as McWethy's Whiskers, which features gin, vermouth, Grand Marnier, sweet vermouth, and other flavors. Favorite standard cocktails are also available, as is expected of any bar worthy of the name.
