The dock hand was right there to assist when we came in, helping to tie up the boat. We had a nice lunch, all the staff were wearing masks, and customers needed to wear when ordering. Just one caution. If you have a large dog (ie 90 lb German Shepard) you have to life the dog up to the dock and it can be a challenge, and then walk along a thin walkway above the water. We managed fine, just takes some maneuvering. Nice staff, fun place to dock along the river in Chicago.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Island Party Hut. Everyone was very attentive and accommodating to us. Amber was great (always waiting to assist every time we departed or docked). We had dinner both nights. Really good grilled burgers, hot dogs, brats. Really fun atmosphere.

We have never gone boating in Chicago before and Island Party Hut had amazing response time to all my questions. It is a great location to dock and walk down the riverwalk. It was easy to access and they had air conditioned bathrooms. Someone was there to help us tie up and untie when we left. Will definitely be back again!

Drinks were over priced. Food selection was okay. What we had was fine. Counter service only.

Marina Response:
@Jerryimboden, we appreciate your business and would invite you to try us again this summer! We have an updated food selection and have expanded our bar!

Docking was better than the food. Hard to complain, at least there's more than 3 choices of riverside restaurants to dock at now.
