He left a note for Kevin to call me. Kevin called me the next day. I told him 18-25 people, 7:30, can you accommodate... More

We were on our way through and wanted to watch the packer/bear game, the ppl at the Days Inn sent us there. We sat at the bar and realized there no volume for the game. The bear fans were watching the Cubs game. The football game was on the projector screen which was fine with us. We had our Packer... More

This restaurant was in downtown Utica near Starved Rock State Park. It is a bar with a vintage feel with great food! There are tables in the back. We enjoyed the Stuffed Mushrooms and the fried Walleye! The staff were very friendly, and it was near a local wine tasting room which was our next stop!

Had a wonderful Night out with friends, enjoyed dinner, laughs & hospitality by Brian. The stuffed mushroom were so delicious & filled with cheese & sausage versus a ton breaking. The cheese steak sandwich was generous & everything was fresh. The friendliness of the staff on a girls night out really added to the evening. If we didn't live so... More

Friendly staff and a great menu. We ate lunch on the patio. We loved the baked stuffed mushrooms. Worth the drive from the highway. This is real food.
