We stopped here during the Utuca celebration of Burgoo for a quick beer. We had been here before, but it was always so crowded with no seating. We were shocked to see the beautiful new patio deck. Then, we heard the Silverstrings playing. The deck...More

Place is kind of funny. Pretty much a dump that sells some native American trinkets and stuff like that. Plus camping/hunting stuff, leather boots vests, etc. The bar is actually really nice. Basically a Biker stop.

Stopped by for the Bloody Mary Bar and was not disappointed. Great selection of mixers and garnishes. The price was fair and the staff friendly and helpful. We also did a moonshine tasting. The selection of moonshine was amazing and bought 2 bottles

It was our first e-bike experience and it made us smile. You barely have to pedal and you're cruising down the road. Doug was easy on the phone and accommodating in person. Just do it.

Just ask for Doug, and he will make sure you have the best ebike rental ever. Awesome to site see around the Starved Rock area, and up and down the I&M towpath (now a trail for biking.)
