Not a great food variety. Almost everything is pickled. Pickled vegetables. The beer batter on the veggies was good. Disappointed that they didn’t have the beer batter asparagus. I don’t drink, but there were many beer choices.

The menu is very fresh and very creative. We were amazed at the presentation and flavors! Even though it's a two hour drive, we will definitely be back!

Stopped here on the way back home. Had a four beer flight. All was great and cold. The servers where very friendly.

Bloomington/Normal, IL, is not what I would call a "food mecca." As such, we had to do a little searching to find something more interesting than fast/casual. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and drink at Destihl. We figured we could at least find...More

We tried a couple of beers which I’d guess rotate, all were good. We had the fried asparagus, delicious! We also had the beef and pear salad and the beer battered bacon burger, all delicious!

They have a couple of side rooms and my guess is YES, but you would have to call them to reserve.
