Steak isn't the only cornerstone of Monte's menu, they also serve a wide range of delicious fresh fish. At Monte's you'll find lake perch from Lake Eerie, fresh Alaskan salmon, Chilean sea bass and even a mouthwatering walleye pike out of Canada.
"We specialize in steaks and pasta, but also seafood. The old LaSalle County generation was all about chicken and pasta. It took us years to get fresh fish introduced to the area, but thanks to US Food Service we have connections that get us delicious, really fresh, fish. It’s become one of the local favorites," Hughes said.
"We get all of our fresh fish from Boston Fish, out of Chicago. So, it can be caught yesterday, delivered to us in the morning, and on your plate by the evening. It can’t get fresher than that in the Midwest."
As with the steak and pasta entrees, Monte's fish portions are generously sized. This allows you to have a full meal during your dinner, and still bring some home for lunch the following day.
