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.

Rainforest Cafe inside Gurnee Mills MallDine 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, The Silo restaurant is all about a great meal with a laid back and fun atmosphere. The giant Silo attached to the front of the rustic building make for an interesting dining experience that’s fun for everyone. Known for their deep dish pizza, original since 1968, they also have great salads and delicious sandwiches.

Bills Pizza and Pub in MundeleinEveryone 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. Another much loved pizza place is Uno’s, which started in Chicago in 1943 and has been a favorite ever since.

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!

David's Bistro in AntiochDavid’s Bistro in Antioch serves up casual family dining with an amazing menu to choose from. Kids will love favorites like the Turkey Havarti Cheese Baguette with mango chutney, and kids will love choosing from their own menu favorites that all come with a mini martini sundae – kid friendly of course!

Eat great food next weekend in Lake County!
