Bluestone

You know that feeling….when you just want comfort and home? Familiar faces, tasty food that reminds you of Mom’s home cooking, and a friendly smile. Welcome to Bluestone! Your home away from home, we strive to give you a great experience everytime you walk in the door. Wanting to bring the Chicago style neighborhood restaurant to Evanston, Bluestone was the very first. Always family run it’s maintained that hometown feel. When you come into Bluestone and look up, you will notice there are over 250 pin flags from all over world. The flag collection was born from John’s love of the game that began at Peter Jan’s as a boy. He would take the L from Dempster to Central street with his friends from St. Mary’s School and hit the course. Fresh ingredients, menu variety, and affordable prices have always been standards. We take pride in our fresh fish, and daily specials. The sizzling burgers, paper thin pizza, smoked wings, and the legendary key lime pie have become staples on Central Street and beyond!
