Blind Mule Bar @ Hayden's Crossing

107 N Water St, Wilmington, IL 60481, Phone number (815) 476-5925

The next entry on our list is surely one of Chicago Party Buses' favorites when it comes to the dining and drinking establishments that we recommend to our customers. We love the beautiful and rustic vibe that gives a bit of a romantic atmosphere. For those who love to dance to a great selection of juke box music, this is your spot. The food is absolutely sensational too, including Reuben rolls that you will never be able to forget, and a black and bleu cheeseburger that will truly tempt your taste buds! It's worth the caloric indulgence, believe us! The cod po boy is another great option, and we order it on a regular basis! Great selection of beers on tap and in bottles, and their cocktail menu is great! On their Mexican specialty nights, grab a Margarita! The ambiance is simply wonderful and you'll enjoy relaxing here with a delicious meal and drink. This one is very highly recommended by us and our clients, so don't miss out!

Turtle's Tap - CLOSED

152 E Main, Dwight, IL 60420, Phone number (815) 584-3663

Now this is a really cool old fashioned bar located under a delightfully retro green awning in an old brick building on Main Street. What Chicago Party Buses customer doesn't love this place? It's a gold mine of retro goodness. They've got lots of great things to choose from here in terms of the food, including melt-in-your-mouth fried chicken and crave-worthy "pig wings." The spinach dip is worth noting, and the fried chicken dinner is a slice of home cooked goodness. For dessert, why not go wild and try the skillet cookie? That's something that you don't find in too many other places. They've got mostly just the typical domestic beers available here but that's what you'd expect at an old dive bar like this. Love it! If you're in a hurry or feel like hanging out at home, you can still enjoy the delicious food at Turtle's by taking advantage of their take out service!

Station 343

140 E Main St, Dwight, IL 60420, Phone number (815) 584-9343

Locals now this is truly a special offering in the Campus/Dwight area. Chicago Party Buses customers love coming here. It's a little pricier than most places in this area but we believe it's worth it for the quality and the ambiance. It's super clean and really beautifully decorated with a unique fire house theme. The Shrimp Alexander, what can be said about it, it's really something that has to be experienced, great when paired with the rolls and sweet butter. They've got a full bar so you can enjoy Long Island iced teas and all your favorite cocktails too! Their specialty cocktails, like the Grasshopper and the 911 Sour are definitely worth indulging in. They offer wonderful soups as well, such as a lobster and crab bisque that is truly unforgettable! This bar and restaurant is truly remarkable. If you're planning a night out and want to enjoy a birthday dinner, we recommend Station 343. If you get an opportunity to dine here, don't skip it, you'll want to experience a great dining experience here!

Tom's Tavern & Restaurant

221 Main St, Kempton, IL 60946, Phone number (815) 253-6407

Tom's Tavern is a cozy bar and restaurant with a comforting menu of traditional American cuisine. They offer a fresh salad bar, and a variety of satisfying entrées. The prime rib is a prime choice, and the twice baked potatoes are incredible! The Alfredo is superb, and we actually really enjoy all of their fine pasta dishes! For comfort food, the fried chicken with corn and potatoes and house gravy is a great choice, or the meatloaf and scalloped potatoes. Taco Tuesday and Buffet Fridays are two of our favorite days to pop in and eat at Tom's, but by far our favorite thing here is the pizza! This is really home cooked food, and that makes for a very comfortable and welcoming dining experience. The prices at Tom's Tavern are low for the large portions, and the service is very friendly. This is a great restaurant for families!

Pete's Restaurant & Pancake House

900 N Union St, Dwight, IL 60420, Phone number (815) 584-2331

You are now entering a really beloved (and cheap!) spot in the Campus/Dwight area that our loyal customers rely on for great food! It's casual and cool here, kind of retro diner style, and they keep it very nice and clean as well. The service is just as wonderful as the ambiance. The food is just great, including biscuits and gravy that you'll never be able to resist, corned beef that's just too flavorful to be described, delicious club sandwiches, and even some very delectable desserts, including a variety of pies that you'll want to take home with you for seconds! Very highly recommended for a casual breakfast, lunch, or dinner! After a long night out in Campus or around Chicago, you can't beat stopping by Pete's for delicious, fluffy pancakes with fresh syrup! Pete's is the perfect place for home cooked food any time of the day.

Rentz's Tap & Dining

210 S Waupansie St, Odell, IL 60460, Phone number (815) 998-2383

The Chicago Party Buses staff just loves this family owned and operated bar and restaurant over in Odell. The Rentz family really knows how to do it right, as is evident in their welcoming dining atmosphere and incredible food. You can enjoy some entertainment as you eat as well by watching the large flat panel TV over in the tavern area so that you can enjoy sports or news while you're there. There's also a private party room that you'll enjoy for your private events. The food here is genuinely home cooked and delicious through and through! There's not a single dish you can order that won't be full of flavor! Our favorite time to go is Italian night on Thursdays, making that a priority for a lot of our customers. Their steaks and pizzas are always fantastic too. This place has been in business for decades, becoming a local staple, and we believe they will continue to do so! Rentz's is one of the best local businesses around, and it's a place you truly don't want to miss out on!
