Timothy O'Toole's Pub is expanding and plans to open in Lake Villa.
Timothy O'Toole's Pub Lake Villa, is under construction and expected to open in early 2018.
It will become the fourth location of the family-owned O'Toole's Pub Group after Timothy O'Toole's Chicago and Gurnee and O'Toole's of Libertyville.
Husband-wife team Sara McKinnon and Humberto Martinez, Jr. are the owners of the growing restaurant business.
The restaurant in Lake Villa will take the place of the former Blackthorn Grille, 10 W. Grand Ave.
The newest eatery will offer a similar menu to Timothy O'Toole's in Gurnee and will market itself as a family pub.
It also is the first of the restaurant group to offer pizza.
