Extremely attractive restaurant with complimentary smore fire pits on the front sidewalk. Ample parking and overflow parking. Great for couples, families, or business meetings. Wide variety of food that guests return for again and again. Many rooms in the place allow you to virtually set the mood. I would suggest an EARLY dinner because at peak times this place had...

Its a nice lodge style establishment. The outside entrance has these firepits that are always going and makes the aroma of fresh campfires. I think they even let you roast marshmallows. Food is pretty good. Seems to fall short on bartenders mixology knowledge. Bar scene can get crazy, but a fun crazy at times.

The atmosphere was nice, the food was good especially recommend the sautéed spinach. To top it off the offer everything for you to make your own smore outside before you leave.

We had a party of five. We had called ahead for reservations.. They were prepared for us when we arrived. Our waitress was at our table in seconds. She took our orders and had the food out in less then ten minute. We all enjoyed our meals. To top off our experience, they had a magician come to our table... More

We visit frequently and do take out because it is so close. Restaurants have been at this location a long time under different names and owners. It is a local steakhouse with very good ribs and rotisserie chicken. Portions are large and they do a good job of making it casual and friendly.

We really enjoy this place. The cabin feel is fun. Especially in the Fall and Winter months. They do outside fires and free s'mores which is also very unique. They offer special nights- trivia, live music, country line dancing, etc. The food is good and large portions if you're hungry. The rotisserie chicken is fabulous. The fish fry is also... More

Had high expectations but was mildly disappointed. When we arrived we were quickly seated around 6:30pm, but felt like we arrived at "peak". Loud, lots of small kids, and waitresses running around like they needed twice as many as they had. Our waitress was one of those who seemed overwhelmed with the workload. Food was decent, but waitress screwed up... More

The Lodge is the latest iteration of the property on Illinois 64. They now feature rotisserie chicken and duck and also feature steaks. As an added treat, you can make your own S'Mores after dinner.

I have two boys (ages 3 & 6) and they both loved seeing the different cars parked at the car show. I've heard the Lodge has the car show every Friday night through the end of the summer.

We actually were here for their monthly learn-to-paint class, which was pretty fun, but we had dinner first. They had a Taco Tuesday special with an assortment of tacos to choose from along with $4 margaritas and $3 Mexican beers. We had shrimp tacos and guacamole, both of which were good, although the menu said the shrimp was spicy and... More
