My husband and I had dinner at the bar on a Saturday. Everybody was so friendly and the regulars introduced themselves. We started with the rav and broth, since we had never heard of it before. It is a local soup of ravioli (or tortellini in this case) and chicken broth. It was pretty good. We then split the southwest chicken wrap with sweet potato fries and we were both happy with the choice. Michele took good care of us. I would visit again if I were in the area.

Reviewed By Melissa B

This is the most pathetic restaurant I have ever witnessed! We were seated and waited 2 hours after ordering before our food arrived. We ordered appetizers that were never received and our waiter did not once stop back at the table to let us know what was going on or to refill our drinks. We had to go to the bar to get refills on water. My frozen daiquiri was warm when served to me. When they finally brought the food out, they only had 3 of our 4 meals. The burgers were burnt and the fries were under cooked. I am still in absolute shock over how awful our experience was! All the tables around us had the same wait time and we all got meals for free.

Haze Smokehouse

Reviewed By gator727

Husband and I were out for a Sunday drive on this beautiful day in May. We were originally going to stop in Utica for a late lunch. So glad we didn’t and kept driving or we would have missed this place. Awesome food, wonderful service. Our waitress was super friendly. Their Bama Nachos were phenomenal and we split the Ruben. Generous portions. Can’t wait to go back and try the meat sampler.

Reviewed By Hobnail

What is really nice about this place is the seating in a screened area facing the street. It is "outside" without having people walking by and smelling the fumes of the garbage truck going down the street. Beer selection was good, but pricey. My salad was very different and enjoyable. Wife got a burger, which was cooked to perfection, but wife likes them burnt, so was not satisfied. Service was great and timely. Overall cost was higher than a tavern, but expected that. Recommended.Thank you for joining us, we are happy you got to enjoy the screened in patio. Our chefs love to create unique and delicious flavor combinations for our ever-changing menu! We are always happy to cook burgers to any temperature you prefer! We hope you can join us again!Best,Ryan

Elements at Starved Rock Lodge

Reviewed By Holly S

We ate in this restaurant because the main dining area wasn't open yet. This is basically the same restaurant as the big one at the lodge. t had such a taste for roast turkey so that's what I ordered. My meal included turkey, mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes with gravy. It wasn't even room temperature...it was cold. I did let our server know and she brought me another plate of food which was cooler than the first plate. I didn't want to wait any longer so I ate it. I did let her know before I consumed it and she really didn't do anything about it....not even call a manager. I was charged full price as well. I would not go back. Very disappointing especially after a day at beautiful Starved Rock.

We stopped in on our way to Starved Rock. The restaurant looked great...clean, nicely-decorated, appealing. We ordered fish 'n' chips and a turkey BLT. Both of us enjoyed our meals! Service was great. People were friendly! We'd go back!

Dinner on holiday with best friend my wife. Smaller place with local charm. Barkeeper was friendly and greeted us on entry. Beer on tap was your normal industrial pulls, with a few notable crafts. Service was good, but I think the server forgot our order, or the cook was killing chickens, as the fried chicken seemed to take forever to get to the table. Large portions for a reasonable price. Actually two meals for us. Cannot complain too much. Recommended.
