Stop by the Back Door Lounge & Veranda for casual dining. Outdoor dining on the Veranda is available for lunch and dinner. Kick back and relax with a one-of-a-kind view of Starved Rock and the Illinois River Valley. Cool off inside The Back Door Lounge, enjoy Gorgonzola Nachos and Starved Rock Signature Ale. Join us for live music every Friday and Saturday night outside on the Veranda from 8-11 pm. The grill opens at 5 pm. The panoramic view is nothing short of amazing and the sunsets are stunning, too.
