Lake County Lakeside Dining

Soak up our natural beauty while enjoying mouthwatering meals...

With 75 inland lakes, it’s no wonder that Lakeside dining is something that we serve up right. Next weekend, soak in the summer rays while enjoying a citrus dish, or in the winter months, dine inside with a cozy glass of wine and views of a beautiful snow covered lake for that woodsy lodge feel.

Let Lake Michigan’s sandy shores and lapping waves add to the ambiance of a beautiful lakeside meal. Get lost in a delicious dish at the Illinois Beach Resort while enjoying stunning views of Lake Michigan’s horizon as it spans as far as the eye can see.

The Chain O’Lakes in Antioch offer beautiful views and a vast array of restaurants to choose from. Come by land or by water to El Puerto Mexican Restaurant for award winning margaritas and authentic fajitas. Spending the day on the water can be a lot of work, so let Steitz’s Restaurant & Marina worry about the cooking. And who cares if you didn’t catch anything all day? Their Friday night fish fry is the perfect way to talk about all of the ones that got away. Insider Tip: When the lake freezes over, try their toboggan slide!

Port of Blarney is known as the “Key West of the Midwest” and has the beachy lake side feel that goes with it. During the summer months, take it one step further by jumping a boat to Blarney’s Island for a rowdy adventure that rivals any spring break scene.

Lindy’s Landing is a family favorite for Lakeside dining. Dine on their patio overlooking Bangs Lake, or enjoy a more laid back approach with their beach bar, complete with picnic benches in the sand, and plenty of little water babies playing in the summer sun – everyone loves this family friendly restaurant.

Top off your weekend getaway to Lake County with a meal by the lake!
