from Montrose Beach at Lake Michigan. Buena Beach is an eclectic

of a high-rise condominium building, has already gained a following
among building residents and increasingly, the neighborhood.

in good basic food and we are confident that folks from the Buena Park
neighborhood will think of Buena Beach as quite a find: A fun, casual
gastropub that serves really delicious food at very reasonable prices,"
said Grbac. "We're serving a wide range of styles so that our guests
will have a varied selection from which to
choose. Daily specials are really daily specials." Buena Beach also

dishes, sandwiches, wraps, and numerous appetizers are all there, as
well as the homemade desserts. The bar features a good selection of
craft beers, wines and creative cocktails.
"We're here to serve everyone," says partner Craig McWilliams.
"Guests can dine in or take out, and we're happy to cater for groups. As
you would expect, we're getting plenty of pizza and burger orders which
we are happy to deliver. But we're also noticing that there are many
people who enjoy our dinner entrees and will take them to-go if they're
in the mood to eat at home. To aid people in ordering for delivery or
take-out, we've created a smartphone app. Simply text BUENA to 33733 to get our app!"
