Diamond Mineral Springs

1 W. Pocahontas Road Highland, IL 62249 | Outstate IL | 618-675-2655

Location Description:

The main restaurant here is what's left of an old spa complex that dates to 1892, and the food harks back to a time when "healthy," as used as a modifier for "appetite," had not yet limited such things as calories, sugar and cholesterol. Food is served "family-style," which means heaping helpings of mashed potatoes, spiced beets, beans and other sides come with every meal. Be sure to top it off with a slice of pie with about a foot of meringue on top.
