Our space and location on the Fox River create an ideal setting for a successful event. But the difference between successful and amazing is in our attitude. We want people to be happy. No cookie cutters to be found here. We tailor the experience. Inside or outside or both, your choice. With a chef-customized menu.

Imagine your event, graceful and extraordinary.

Chef's Tables

Enjoy watching Chef Chris Curren and his culinary team prepare your choice of a five, seven or ten-course tasting menu as he describes the inspiration and ingredients behind each dish. From a counter-height table looking directly into the kitchen, it’s almost enough to make you forget about that amazing Fox River view. Almost.

Tasting Menus at our Chef’s Tables can be booked Tuesday-Thursday evenings
