Description: Station 343 opened in August of 2012 and is the focal point of Historic Main Street in Dwight, IL. Station 343 was named in honor of the 343 Firefighters and Paramedics that lost their lives on September 11th, 2001. Station 343 establishes the atmosphere of a fire station. Complete with a vintage 1917 Seagrave fire truck that was used by the Pontiac, IL Fire Department. The brick walls, wood floors and rafters are all original to the building originally build in 1881. This historic building was home to many businesses over the years that serviced the many travelers on Historic Route 66. Station 343 is a must see for anyone making the Route 66 Journey.

Found this place at 1:30pm on a Thursday cruising through Dwight. Old firefighter memorabilia covers the restaurant. Chicken and rice soup was almost as good as my wife’s recipe. Scottish salmon on Caesar salad was good recommendation. Good place for dinner I’m sure.

Skip the fast food spots if you are driving to Chicago on I-55. This spot has terrific hand cut fries, tasty sandwiches, great chili and the list goes on. It was named to honor the fallen firefighters at the Twin Towers. So drive the few extra miles and have great a meal.

Last night (Saturday) we paid our first visit to Station 343, we were not disappointed in any way. Saturday nights are prime rib special night, two of us choose that and we both were really happy with the way they were prepared. Great service in a wonderfully relaxing environment. We will be going back even though we are an hour away from Bloomington.

I am a 26 year retired member of a small volunteer fire department. Station 343 is about an hour drive for me and worth every mile. The place is amazing for fire fighter people or anyone else for that matter. There is a fire truck from 1917 inside the building, great old pictures, tools and equipment throughout the restaurant. We sat at the high top table in the front of the dining room, and got a great view of the street and two Amtrak trains that went by. The food was great, the service was better.

Vibrant atmosphere after the town’s Christmas parade! Lots of diners, but typical friendly service. Salmon dinner was again (it’s my favorite menu item, I’ll confess) perfect. Asparagus beneath was crunchy and tasty. Enjoy!
