Music takes place on Friday nights from 8-11pm in the Back Door Lounge once the weather has gotten too chilly to be outside on the Veranda. Be sure to try a Starved Rock Signature Ale or take advantage of our seasonal drinks! No cover charge!

Starved Rock Signature Ale is our own special beer for Starved Rock Lodge. Produced by Leinenkugel Breweries, the hand-crafted beer is a cross between an English-style amber ale and a pale ale. It’s fresh and it’s on tap.
