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 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

My review title reflects the name of one of the barkeep's concoctions on the menu; a mix of fruit juices and vodka and very yummy. I went with a group of adults, children and babies. The waitstaff was helpful in arranging for our large group. The surprising thing to me was being asked if we had reservations when we walked... More

Menu was somewhat limited. Food was average. We had the walleye and chicken sandwich - both just average.

We stopped at Skoog's on our last trip to Utica. LOVED it! Yes, it IS a bar, there is no getting around that! But it is more like a small town diner that has bar too. We felt totally comfortable taking our 5 year old in and there were plenty of others with children in there too! Food was AWESOME!!... More

Well this was our second night at Grizzly Jacks and we ventured into town to Skoog's Pub and the service, atmosphere and food were wonderful. The price was certainly reasonable. Would recommend this pub!
