  • Live Music Every Friday Night (8-11:00PM)

    There’s nothing like relaxing on the Veranda at Starved Rock Lodge. Located just outside the Back Door Lounge, the smell of freshly-grilled burgers fills the air. Craft beer, seasonal cocktails and musicians that rock are on the calendar for this season. Arrive early and get a good seat then sit back and listen or get up and dance!

  • Music Tribute Shows

    Tickets are now available for “Tribute to the Stars” Show. The Great Hall of Starved Rock Lodge is the perfect setting for this and more entertaining and interactive shows. Most shows are matinees which include a buffet lunch. Check-in begins at 11:30am. We have three evening shows on the calendar (dinner buffet is included). Reservations are required for all shows. Call (815) 220-7386 and we’ll hold a seat just for you.
