Nice place

We both had Italian beef. Really good more like a Philly with Provolone but really good!! It has bell peppers and onion with side of Pepperchonnis. Onion rings and Fries were really good also. Took home 1/2 wife's Sandwhich. A little cool in the dining room but it's like 2 degrees out.

Excellent wings and appetizers! The service is always top notch and the place is always clean! They have excellent chili and the night we were there they also had a bacon cheeseburger soup that my wife thought was excellent! They always seem to be busy when ever we are there and that alone says something. Someday we will have to... More

A group of 8 of us went here for lunch after a short hike in Starved Rock. The food was great, coming in a rather large serving size and a reasonable price (~$12 per pax for a meal). The only downside was that the lunch menu was quite limited, but still a decent variety. Overall, an excellent meal.

With no kids this time we sat at the bar. The staff was friendly and attentive. They talked to one another respectfully and extended that respect on to the customers. The bathrooms were clean. Nice place to watch college football without feeling crowded or rushed.

We split the hamburger special. It came out on 2 plates, each of us had a full order of fries, pickles, l,t,o and Cole slaw. The burger was crazy awesome. The fries were hot sticks of deliciousness. We will definitely be back.

A party of 12 was served great food in a timely manner. We had adults and children and they had a nice menu for the little ones, with large portions.

We all enjoyed our food and the atmosphere was friendly. But our waitress seemed to have all the customers and the food took a long time to come out. They didn't refill our waters. Eat here if you aren't in a hurry.
