Although it’s been open for the past 95 years or so, Scoreboard has seen few changes beyond its name. Once known as Schweda’s Barbecue, the Lake Zurich bar, and grill is still owned and operated by the same family and present proprietor Joe Schweda. The building has maintained much of its charm, including the original bar top and beer tap. The white-washed building stands out and is situated near the lake on Old Rand Road. The Scoreboard does its part to maintain a neighborhood feel, acquiring all of its meats from Orchard Prime Meats, which has been conveniently located next door for the past 20 years. While watching a game, patrons can wash down a juicy half-pound burger, thin-crust pizza, or one of a dozen types of sandwiches with a frothy draft beer. Aside from supplying eats and drinks, the Scoreboard staff also reaps karma points by hosting philanthropic events such as “The Purple Plunge,” and by always letting women and children onto the lifeboats first.
