I have never been treated so horribly! We were in Utica for a family weekend and walked into the restaurant around noon. There were 2 other tables so they were far from full. I told the blond woman behind the bar we had 13 adults and 8 children and we were fine not all sitting together. She glared at me and said "good luck getting service" and walked away. The waitress then came out and said she was the only one working. I told her we were an easy group so there would be no problem. One of the fellow mothers tried to move 2 tables together and the blond woman snapped at us and said " I thought you weren't moving any tables" I replied that we did not have to and if it was too much for a group our size we would leave. She told me no it was fine so we decided to stay and she walked away again. My 1 year old wandered into the back room so my husband followed and thank goodness he did! She was going on a tirade calling myself and another mother Fing Bs repeatedly and going off about us. We packed up our stuff and left. I will never go back to such a poorly run establishment. We had a lovely lunch at Starved Rock Lodge and would go back any time!! They were fabulous!!

I am so happy that my husband and I are within driving distance. This is one of our favorite places to eat and grab a few drinks with clients and/or friends. Great warm atmosphere, friendly staff - highly recommended for August Hill Winery, Grand Bear Lodge and Starved Rock visitors! (Locals too, haha)

We love this place and have been here many times. Don't believe the crap that the other forum / review sites are letting crabby people post. This restaurant is a diamond in the rough out here in Utica, Illinois. For the price the food is head and shoulders above the competition.

Take a second and ask to meet the owner, he is the most down to earth guy you'll ever meet - and I bet he will thank you for your patronage.

This place is a great place to go if you are looking for pub food at a reasonable price. Be sure to go early though because they do tend to get packed on the weekends.

Wow--our large family group had an excellent experience at Canal Port. We were together for a family reunion and were looking for a place close to Starved Rock Lodge, where we were staying. It is also close to the Grand Bear Lodge. The atmosphere was great--clean, historic building in downtown Utica. The wait staff was great, especially with our large group. The food was delicious, I especially liked the grilled turkey burger with portabella mushrooms and Swiss cheese. It exceeded my expectation in taste and was a large portion. My daughter especially liked the breaded mushroom appetizer. There were even good choices for the vegetarians in our group. :-) I recommend this as a great place to get together for a meal or social gathering.
