We came here after a great day hiking starved rock and found a welcoming atmosphere, warming fireplace, and the best damn ribs in town. We are spoiled with great BBQ joints in Chicago but these ribs really impressed. Great stop in Utica.

Every time we go to Starved Rock, the experience cannot be complete without a stop at the Canal Port. The food is always excellent. My husband loves the ribeye sandwich. I enjoy the fish. It's a great place to relax after a long hike.

That's what I had for lunch. Others had the hamburger, steak sandwich and grilled chicken sandwich. All was done exactly as order in good portion and taste good. The decoration of place had a nostalgic feel to it.

What a nice treat! We stopped in for lunch and had great sandwiches. The raspberry tea was so refreshing. Beth was a GREAT waitress and anticipated our needs! I would highly recommend for a meal and a stroll through town.

Everyone enjoyed their lunches, crab cake sandwiches, chicken caprese sandwich and chicken tenders. Service staff could use a little more training but they got the job done.

We shared the crab cake appetizer, which was pretty good. The basket of bread was not good...very plain bread, not served warm, flavorless. I ordered the broiled cod, which was not cooked well and was very rubbery. My husband ordered the slim chicken, which was...More

The atmosphere was beautiful, the service was good, our dishes were very tasty and prices were reasonable. I ordered the strawberry & walnut salad, with blue cheese, and it was delicious. My son got the boneless pork chops and they too were delicious.
