Ate here several time over the course of an event held at this venue. Pizza was fantastic (chicken bacon ranch on gluten free crust, brick oven baked). The opening event had a nice buffet with sirloin steaks and chicken Marsala, both of which were tasty.

I was there for a convention and the staff and facilities were great. The food was really good as well. Try the cheesecake- really amazing!

There were no shortcuts taken when they designed and developed this place. Simply put, the nicest and most impressive place to visit in S. Illinois. We will be back!

A definite destination place as it is most out of the way. Several friends recommended, so we wanted to give it a try. Atmosphere is fantastic with attention to detail. Soft lighting, cloth table cloths and napkins, fireplace. I had the bouillabaisse which had a...More
