I have been coming here for 10 years and although the building appears small on the outside it is very roomy inside and has a beautiful bar. You step out of Joliet and enter into a Chicago style white linen restaurant. The lunch & dinner...More

Yes, they offer a room for private parties. I am not sure about the separate check for 12 people. You could call they and ask. You will not be disappointed in the food, it is delicious!!!
