Eat & Drink

During the COVID-19 pandemic the restaurants and bars have been ordered closed to the public by the State of Illinois. In accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Whiteside County Health Department, many of our locally-owned downtown restaurants have begun providing curbside pick-up or delivery options in order to continue services.  See below and follow the links to the individual businesses’ pages for additional information.  We encourage you to continue to support our small businesses now more than ever as we come together as a community during this unprecedented time of crisis.
