    Beautiful location

    Starved Rock was an absolutely beautiful reception venue. We have always loved hiking around the park and it was truly special to be able to have our wedding here. The Starved Rock sales team was a pleasure to work with, they were flexible and very knowledgeable and made my wedding day go as smoothly as possible.

    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!
