It's always a pleasure to experience the ambience and food that the Ivy Tech students prepare for guests! Our server was nervous at first, but with encouragement and practice, she gained confidence and even enjoyed her role by the end of the meal. The food was delicious and beautifully presented.

About the restaurant
The Canal Bistro is the realization of a dream for Mona and George Hanna. George's homeland is Egypt; Mona spent her first 23 years in Lebanon. They know Mediterranean cooking. George has been in the restaurant business for 22 years. And over the years, Mona watched her mother and grandmother cook for their big family from their own herb and vegetable gardens, learning the value of freshness in cooking.

George says. "It's been our dream to open our own place, to be creative with cuisine, and to have a family business that our sons can be a part of."

The Canal Bistro is that dream. "It's like you've come to one of our parties -- we've basically just moved our kitchen from home to here," they say. "We put the grill in the dining room because we want people to know that we are using top quality ingredients, and that freshness is our goal, so everything is done right in front of you."

So eat up, relax, be happy. You're eating in a dream come true!

What a great restaurant! They have an eclectic American tapas menu, creatively conceived and excellently prepared, a substantial wine list, and perfect ambiance. They have both high and regular seating, both tables and booths. Our server was charming and efficient. We highly recommend it.

About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.

Overall, it was a pleasant experience. Things ultimately felt a little overpriced for the quality received. I ordered the Filet Mignon, medium. It arrived completely brown inside, tough to cut, and dry. It had basic flavor…the only saving grace that made it edible was the melted garlic butter on it. I did enjoy the Tomato and Mozzarella salad and mashed potatoes I ordered as well.

Cicero
About the restaurant
Sitting proudly on the northern Morse Lake shoreline between State road 31 and 37 is where you'll find downtown Cicero, a happy-go-lucky lake town. And where the Boathouse Kitchen & Swan Dive calls home.
Resting alongside the water’s edge, all you need to do to find us is look for the red, white and blue, listen for the sounds of neighbors and new friends as they gather, and let the scent of freshly prepared food draw you in.
We think this place is different and we hope you’ll think it’s different, too. The Boathouse Kitchen & Swan Dive values lake life, lake towns and lake food served with a humble heart. And we’re so grateful you found us.
