Trustee Vacancy

Dear Campton Hills Residents:

On June 19, 2018, Laura Andersen resigned her position as Village Trustee as she is relocating out of the Village boundaries.

The Village Board of Trustees and staff wish Laura well in her future endeavors.

This resignation has created a vacancy on the Board of Trustees. In an effort to fulfill my campaign promise of openness, and an effort to have new people involved in Village government, I am reaching out to you.

If you are interested in becoming a Village Trustee, and being of service to your community, this may be the opportunity you have been waiting for.

Click here to apply. Deadline is July 13, 2018.

Harry Blecker

President, Village of Campton Hills


Balmoral Restaurant
Grand Opening

On Monday, July 9, Balmoral Restaurant will celebrate its Grand Opening with bagpipers, Scottish dancers, magicians, a $500 giveaway, hors d’oeuvres and an Open House to showcase all that has gone into the creation of this unique culinary concept. The restaurant had a soft open on June 4, and since then has amassed more than 50 five-star reviews online.

The restaurant opens at 11am, but the real festivities begin at 4pm, with a quarter-mile bagpipe and Scottish dance processional, ending at the restaurant. From then, dancing and piping will continue into the evening.  Owner Colin Smith has strong opinions about what constitutes authentic Scottish food. 

“Balmoral is the only truly authentic, traditional Scottish food in the United States,” Smith says.  But he should know – as he spent years working at, chefing in, and ultimately owning many different restaurants in England and Scotland before coming to the States. Balmoral Restaurant is Smith’s first establishment in the U.S., which he has spent nearly 3 years building in Campton Hills, Illinois – on the western edge of St. Charles in the Fox Valley.
The restaurant takes its name from Balmoral Castle, one of the greatest castles still owned by the British monarchy, first purchased by Prince Albert in 1856 for Queen Victoria. Mr. Smith has long fancied it to be an exemplar of Scottish culture and aristocratic flair.  For his restaurant, Smith borrowed liberally from the style of place settings, right down to the exact china and crystal used at the castle.  In addition, the interior of Balmoral Restaurant features designs and murals and military lore, to evoke the Scottish experience for restaurant-goers.

Owner Smith has worked closely with Executive Chef Ryan Kacenjar to create a one-of-a-kind menu.  Menu items include pheasant, rabbit, venison, duck – as well as many favorite items prepared with a Scottish twist.  With more than 20 entrees, there are plenty of options to choose from.

There are only a handful of reservations still available for July 9, but the patio will be open and festivities will spill out of the restaurant into the surrounding area.  Balmoral invites everyone to stop by, enter the drawing for the $500 gift card giveaway, and maybe have a drink or one of the delicious appetizers, or a dessert by in-house pastry chef Rebecca Weaver – if not a full meal of Grand Scottish Fare.

Balmoral Restaurant is located in the Western Suburbs of Chicago, at the intersection of Illinois Route 64 and La Fox Road, in the Campton Square development of Campton Hills, Illinois. Reservations are available at, or by calling the restaurant directly, at 331-901-5224.  More information is available online, at
