Ate here last time we visited Utica. My husband had to have the wings again and I enjoyed my 8-layer salad again too! It is popular and busy, even at 3pm, but the service and food was as good as we remembered. We will come back again!

We stopped in to Skoogs with our family of five after a day of hiking at Starved Rock State Park. Most of us ordered their fried chicken, which comes out piled impossibly high on the plate and proved to be WAY too much food for any one of us to eat. Despite the massive quantity, this was also good quality... More

I was kind of disappointed after reading the reviews. I was there in a fairly big group & we all thought the good was ok, not great. The biggest hit were the Wings. Everything else was average & not really worth the long wait. It was a nice bar to sit in & watch sports on the TVs.

Nothing fancy, but a better than average pub. Sandwiches were delicious and definitely hand crafted. Good value.

I was going to leave because the atmosphere is bland. Ordered a hamburger and was pleasantly surprised at the quantity and yumminess of it.

When I moved to the Midwest, I heard people rave about restaurants based on potions and price. Those points move Skoogs to the top,of the line. We were there on an extremely busy weekend and were impressed with the prices and quality of food. The chicken is outstanding and the beer was great! Go! A slice!

We were recommend to come here by the Illinois River Winery. We simply wanted a sandwich and a beer. Skoogs was very comfortable and the service was friendly. My husband and I shared a delicious chicken sandwich and enjoyed our brews. The only thing I noticed is we had different toppings on our sandwich. We ordered the special which was... More

We only have a few restaurants we return to when the neighbors get together & Skoogs is on our list of places to go. We always have a great meal & they have accommodated us with a large crowd & without a reservation. We always enjoy our meal here
