If you are looking for a pub with a neighborhood feel (ala Cheers) but with a little bit extra, look no further than Marty's Place in Crest Hill. Marty the owner and his staff are customer focused and will make you feel right at home. They offer a fine selection of daily beer and drink specials and although the menu is rather limited, the food they have is rather tasty. The chicken wings and personal pizza are especially good. On top of that, Marty's has not only Karaoke a couple of times a week but also host some of the best local cover bands the area has to offer and with no cover charge. Performers such as Stevie Starlite, Life Is Drama, Chasing Amy, The Righteous Hillbillies, Under D Influence and Five Guys Named Moe among others regularly grace their stage. It's no secret that owner Marty Koppel is a huge supporter of local music. In addition Marty's also offers 14 big screen TV's broadcasting sports, news and television shows. If you haven't been to Marty's, make it a point to stop in and you just may find yourself with a new favorite bar!
