Dinner service is very good with lots of options on the menu. Bar next door is loud later into the evening but still a nice place to eat with good service and nice meals. Breakfast is limited from the menu but offers a nice buffet with a lot of selection. Meals are priced within reason for a hotel restaurant.

If you don't care to dine in the traditional dining hall, then check out Back Dour Lounge. It has a bar and a more modern feel.

If you are spending the day at Starved Rock, don't bother packing a picnic. The dining room serves great food at reasonable prices and the setting is lovely.

I really, really enjoy this dining room. The atmosphere absolutely can't be beat. Our female bartender and server were fantastic. When my ribeye came out, she saw my face after cutting into it and told ME- that's well done, not medium- I'll bring it back. My next one was TO DIE FOR!! I love that they have Harp (and the...

We needed to refuel between hikes and the dining at Starved Rock was perfect. It was a lively Saturday afternoon, but not too crowded. I would go back.
