Jill and the staff at Starved Rock are wonderful to work with. They are very accommodating and helpful. We couldn't ask for more positive experiences than when working with them. The venue is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the staff is great. We look forward to being a part of many more weddings at Starved Rock!
