Maple-Glazed Beer Battered Bacon. This appetizer is an EXPERIENCE! If you are visiting Normal, this is a MUST DO. The rest of our food was also good, but that bacon is what we remember!

Fantastic spiced seared swordfish and great service. You should call for a reservation. We were there late on a Thursday evening and it was packed.

Destihl is touted as a brew pub, but food is outstanding! Unique dishes that are delicious - presentation and service is top notch. It gets crowded and noisy later in the evening - so choose your time wisely. Downside is all a-la-carte

They have a couple of side rooms and my guess is YES, but you would have to call them to reserve.
