Active Duty Military Eat Free at The Grille on Laurel

Restaurant Will Begin Offering a Military Salute Meal Promotion This Wednesday

LAKE FOREST, IL--(Marketwired - Feb 8, 2016) - The Grille on Laurel, located at 181 E. Laurel Avenue in Lake Forest, is saying thank you to the nation's active duty military personnel by inviting them to enjoy a free Military Salute meal from a special dining menu daily.

"We look forward to serving our active troops as they connect with family and friends, and to express how much we appreciate their service and sacrifice," said Marcus Lemonis, entrepreneur and host of CNBC's hit reality series, The Profit. "It's our way of saying thank you to those who are currently serving our country, so stop in for lunch or dinner on me!"

Guests will be asked to show proof of active service, which includes military IDs and/or wear of current military uniforms to receive their free lunch or dinner prior to ordering their meal. This program is an enhancement to the restaurant's existing veteran discount program.

Located in downtown Lake Forest, The Grille restaurant has three sections: a front bar where guests can enjoy more lively conversation and television, a main dining room for formal dining, and a spacious outdoor patio complete with umbrellas and cushioned seating.

Lemonis recently became the owner of this North Shore eatery and began initiating changes to the established restaurant and bar, aiming to bring a fun and modern atmosphere to the restaurant along with a revamped menu and expanded bar lounge.
