Cooper’s Hawk Restaurant

Cooper's Hawk winery and restaurant exterior

Cooper’s Hawk is an upscale restaurant with casual dining around the Illinois area. Restauranteur Tim McEnery founded the winery chain. What was once an Orland Park conception, Cooper’s Hawk expanded to a whopping 45 locations. You will be surprised to see that Cooper’s is extremely popular locally and frequently booked.

I would advise making your reservations now on their website. Ranging from Arizona to Florida, Cooper’s Hawk features tasty steaks and excellent wine. One major factor that makes Cooper’s a favorite is their price; affordable! Most expect a high-priced bill for this kind of fine dining, but Cooper Hawk’s begs to differ.
