Sea food & steaks

SE corner of W. Milton Rd. and N. Old McHenry Rd. looking east. Old McHenry Rd. on lower right, Milton Rd. on the lower left.

This is located on the north side of W. Old Rand Road where it turns north and becomes W. Brown Rd. It is a little northwest of the Old McHenry and Rt 12 intersection at 25000 W. Old Rand Rd.

Thank you for the correction Ray! It took a moment for me to see it, but yes indeed that fits perfectly. The view is looking NW; Brown Rd. is on the lower right edge and Rand Rd. arcing across the lower left side. The driveway running across the top left is still there as well. I updated the pin on the map. Do you have any information as to who owned this restaurant?

Sorry, no further info yet. This photo had me stumped at first. I knew it wasn’t the Old McHenry and Rand corner, yet had to be nearby. Thanks for all the great ID workπŸ‘

Looking at the older high altitude aerials I can see that this building was here in 1939. By 1972 the lot had been cleared. By 1980 the present day building was there.

If there are Rural Directories from Lake County from the 1950 or 60s they should list this building. That's the best source identifying old businesses on these photos.
