IMPORTANT UPDATE: Per State Mandate, Masks are now REQUIRED regardless of immunization status as we are a State facility. This includes all areas of the Lodge, Cafe, Main Dining Doom, Back Door Lounge, Visitor’s Center and Trailheads Concessions.
Perched on a bluff high above the scenic Illinois River Valley is this laid-back bar. Try one of our seasonal cocktails or enjoy a craft beer, made just for us by Leinenkugel and Tangled Roots Brewery. Lunch and dinner are served daily.
Not Just a Bar
Craft Beer & Cocktails
We have several seasonal cocktails for you to try! You might like a Banana Split Martini, Watermelon Deuce Cosmo or one of our other specialty drinks. Maybe you’d rather have a glass of our signature craft beers in the Back Door Lounge. Starved Rock Signature Ale (made for us by Leinenkugel) is a cross between an English-style amber ale and a pale ale. Our other guest favorite is Lodge Lager which was released in June of 2018 by Tangled Roots Brewing in Ottawa, IL. Its summery citrus notes are perfectly balanced by a light base of earthy hops. Starved Rock Lodge is proud of our local partnerships with August Hill Winery (Utica, IL), Mississippi River Distilling (LeClaire, IA) and Whiskey Acres Distilling (DeKalb, IL).
