Downtown Waukegan FavoritE


17 North is managed by Tom LeBaron, James (Red) Ogle (former bartender from the Clover bar in Waukegan) and Nick Nicketakis (former owner of the Clover). 17 North is well-known for their burgers, made fresh daily using ground beef purchased from Cribb Fine Foods Inc.. 

Located just down the street from the Historic Genesee Theater. 17 North is a local favorite for stopping in with friends for a quick bite and drink before your favorite shows. Located near the Waukegan Court House, CLC, and a number of downtown businesses we are a great place to grab lunch or a drink after work. Also, if you are at the courthouse and need an area to convene, or a college student looking for a place to relax and do homework we are here for you. Within walking distance to the train station and Waukegan Harbor if you want to grab a beer/drink before your board.

Looking for a fun place to hang out with friends? We have large screen TV's to watch the game, Taproom Gaming Machines, Darts, Ping Pong and more. Join us for karaoke every Friday night from 9 pm- 1 am.
