We had an excellent dinner here tonight with good friends. Spur of the moment decision, but this is a restaurant we have always meant to visit, and the timing was perfect. The ambiance is perfect: wood floors, exposed brick walls, and a spot on focus on our firefighter heroes. The cheerful, knowledgeable staff makes ordering a pleasure. All of us... More

Great meal selections (something for everyone), full bar (if you are into that) and great desserts (who isn't into that??) I've been here with 20 people and I've been here by myself. Food and service are both very good. The kitchen works hard on presentation and it shows. I encourage you when traveling around exits 217 or 220 on I-55... More

We got our table quickly but our waitress appeared to be new and not ready... More

We stopped in for dinner to get off the interstate during a rainstorm. This was a great find (thanks Yelp) and we will definitely be back even though we live about an hour south. The restaurant name, Station 343, is in honor of 343 firefighters and paramedics who died in New York City on 9/11/01. This seemed especially poignant for... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious lunch (only open Wed, Thurs, Fri for lunch) and excellent service at this charming restaurant. Named for the 323 Firefighters and Paramedics who perished in the 9/11 tragedy and tastefully dedicated to all firefighters. They even have an old fire engine in the restaurant! The Steak Nachos are a luncheon special only on... More

I drove from Aurora and met up with my son from Fairbury. Perfect half way driving. Great food and very clean. It was nearing closing and I was impressed that the now empty tables were throughly clean and the employees took pride in there work.
