Rusty Nail will be closed on Easter Sunday.  We wish everyone a wonderful holiday with their families and we’ll see you Monday.

Welcome to the Rusty Nail, where friends go to see friends and where everyone is treated like family.  A longtime local favorite, “The Nail” has become a destination for folks throughout McHenry and Lake County seeking great food, good times, and a comfortable atmosphere.  Whether you are meeting friends, heading to or from Wisconsin, biking, or sledding the glacier trail, or looking for a good place to catch a game, “The Nail” knows how to drive a good time home for you!

If you haven’t seen us in a while, everything is new... new owners, fully remodeled, expanded menus and daily specials.

We now have a heated tent!  Book your get together and try it out.  It can hold large groups for holiday parties.  We can cater the event so all you have to do is show up.

Now serving Crystal Lake Brewing which is some of the finest locally-made beers around.  Come in and try one for yourself if it is truly “easy to drink and hard to put down”.
