The bf & I love heading to starved rock for a weekend getaway from the windy city. When looking for dinner in the area, I'd definitely recommend Canal Port. Since there aren't many options for dinner in the area, we decided to try Canal Port. They had the football game on, which we couldn't get at the hotel, so the bf was happy, and I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly service, and good food.
We tried the mushrooms because of the reviews, and they did not disappoint. I read that they were the size of your fist, and they might actually have been bigger than mine. We ordered way too much food and left happy and full. I also have to note that I have very high standards for ranch dressing, and this place might've had the best ranch I've ever had, which in my book, definitely gives it 5 stars.
