One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Perched on the banks of the Fox River, Becket's lofty-windowed dining room beguiles guests with riverfront mise-en-scéne and modern American specialties. Emphasizing high-quality, local ingredients, Becket's menu accents imaginative sandwiches, fresh seafood, and American staples with quirky flourishes and saucy cardigans. Sate style-hungry stomachs with the caprese sandwich laden with Wisconsin mozzarella, tomato, and basil and your choice of a chicken breast or burger ($9). Heartier alternatives include the pecan crusted walleye ($16) and the grilled pork loin, two 5-ounce filets lolling about on a bed of sautéed apples ($12). Becket's hosts live entertainment four nights a week and offers a spacious bar to take in the views of figure-skating squirrels.

Food was great-everyone loves the pretzel bread. There were 3 of us and we all loved the food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely return… – Joni W, Urbanspoon
Even for a restaurant named after the architect that designed the Park Plaza, the aesthetic ambiance both inside the restaurant and outside (it overlooks the Fox River) is fantastic. – Michael G., Yelp
