“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

The Wharf is a neighborhood bar and restaurant with great food.Though small and unpretentious, the food is very good. There is a daily lunch special and an evening special as well. My favorite is the Sunrise Burger, a classic bacon cheeseburger with a twist, an over medium egg on top. Great! If you find yourself in central Illinois, check it out.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2011

The Wharf is a hidden gem. Literally. South of the lake in South Shores the building can not be seen from the street. It is located behind the Circle K gas station. Always one of my favorite spots, the Wharf is under new management with menu upgrades as of the summer of 2011. Menu includes burgers, sandwiches, salads, fish and the standard "American" fare, all reasonably priced. Lunch or dinner runs anywhere from $5.50 to $15 a person. You can easily get out for under $10 a person. Beer & mixed drinks are also available. The Wharf usually has some sort of daily special. Illinois restaurants do not allow smoking so it is a nice clean atmosphere.
