Colin Smith, owner of the Balmoral Restaurant in Campton Hills, can remember being hungry as a child in Scotland — and getting help from strangers.
More than 200 guests enjoy a luxury meal of Grand Scottish Fare at no cost!

I recently discovered an outstanding Scottish restaurant about 40 miles west of Chicago in Campton Hills, Illinois. Balmoral Restaurant just celebrated its first anniversary in July, and ordinarily, I wouldn’t write about a place with such a short track record. However, when I dined there in June, I was so impressed with the quality of the food, the scope of the menu, and the energy that Balmoral’s owner, Colin Smith, has put into creating the restaurant, that it moved to the top of my list for this month’s column.
The people have spoken!!
Balmoral Restaurant won 6 awards in the 2019 Best of the Fox Contest! The winners were featured in a special digital brochure released on May 30th!
All businesses that made the list were published in a special section on Sunday, April 28 and is available to read online through the Daily Herald E-edition.
Elgin – Balmoral Restaurant served samples of their traditional Grand Scottish Fare last week at The Gail Borden Public Library series Global Neighbors: Scotland to more than 150 people in attendance at the event on Thursday, January 24.
