Eat & Drink

We are currently operating under Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan which provides for limited indoor seating – All of our downtown bars & restaurants have reopened – a few continue to offer curbside/carry-out only and reservations are encouraged for indoor dining at others.  Restrictions are still in place: masks/face-coverings are required; be mindful of social distancing; and the number of customer in a store or restaurant at a time may be restricted based on the size. Please Be Kind. Be Courteous. Be Patient.  Visit a business’s Facebook page, website or call ahead for questions or concerns on safety protocols in place.  Online shopping and curbside pick-up is still being offered by all. See below and follow the links to the individual businesses’ pages for additional information.
