Lake County Family Friendly & Casual Restaurants

Delicious casual eats waiting for you and your family...

You don’t need a special occasion to eat at a restaurant. Good food is reason enough. Next weekend, bring the kids, or stop in for some casual dining… no reservations needed. Who has time to call ahead anyway? Let spontaneity be your culinary guide.

Dine on a vast array of food options while surrounded by giant fish tanks, trumpeting elephants and performing gorillas at the Rainforest Café in Gurnee Mills Mall. Stop in while shopping, or just while passing through the area for an eating adventure that Kids and parents will both love. Be sure to leave room for a Volcano Cake, complete with lit sparklers!

From their family to yours, Miller's Dog N Suds Drive-In  is all about a great meal with a laid back and fun atmosphere. The old-school drive-in makes for an interesting dining experience that’s fun for everyone. Known for their homemade rootbeer, they also have great burgers and delicious sandwiches.

Everyone loves pizza… but literally EVERYONE Loves Bill’s Pizza and Pub. Their Double Decker pizza is known far and wide, and was even featured on Chicago’s Best.

Voted best pancakes in Chicago, Wildberry is a great way to get the day started. Make your own scramble, or pick something from their menu that offers breakfast and lunch options, using only the freshest local farm ingredients. Make a normal breakfast, a treat that the kids will remember with some Oreo S’more Pancakes!

Townee Square Restaurant in Libertyville serves up casual family lunch and brunch options to choose from. Kids will love favorites like waffles, french toasts and pancakes and many more!

Eat great food next weekend in Lake County!
