Vino's Bar & Grill

120 Depot St, Gardner, IL 60424, Phone number (815) 237-8888

Well known and loved as one of those cozy small town bars and grills that allows you to kick back feeling relaxed with your group of friends and enjoy your lunch or dinner and some good drinks. There's a fantastic juke box here and even televisions so you'll be able to watch the big games while you're there. The prices are unbelievably cheap! The pizza is just sensational here, with the most delicious thin crust that you'll ever taste, and a BLT specialty pizza that we've never been able to resist. They've always got a couple of good craft beers on draft too, which is a major perk! Love this spot!

La Piazza Ristorante

425 W Division St, Coal City, IL 60416, Phone number (815) 634-8300

La Piazza Ristorante is one of the very best place that you could ever get pizza in the Gardner area! Chicago Party Buses customers ask our chauffeurs to take them there all the time and it's clear why they do! The full bar is a very nice perk here and we also love the casual vibe and the fact that there's so much room for even the biggest parties. The garbage pizza is our go-to item and it's actually pretty affordable for a pizza that comes with everything but the kitchen sink! The tomato, basil, and garlic is also a very delicious option that's sure to please everyone in your party. Truly delish, highly recommended!

Jones-eez Bar-B-Que

551 W Kennedy Rd, Braidwood, IL 60408, Phone number (815) 458-0995

A charming, rustic and pleasant place to spend the afternoon or evening. They've got both food and drinks at this cozy little bar, both of which are great and cheap too. They're happy to take reservations and can accommodate large groups. The food that you'll enjoy here tends to revolve around their specialty of pulled pork, including pork nachos, pork pizza, and pork tater tots, all of which we have tried and loved! They've got lots of delicious sides too, including cole slaw and macaroni and cheese. Every thing's flavorful and fresh and the service has been very professional!

Blind Mule Bar at Hayden's Crossing

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

Searching for a nicer, more high end establish to visit during your trips in the greater Gardner area? Then look no further. Their menu is really varied here, with things as interesting as reuben rolls and items as traditional and delicious as the blue cheeseburger. Dee-lish! We also really love their buffalo shrimp and their wonderfully crisp BLT wedge salad, which pair very well together believe it or not. They've got a great selection of beer for you to choose from too. The ambiance is kind of rustic and reminiscent of an old fashioned barn, which we enjoy. The loft area is especially a joy to hang out in. Truly superb service and an all around comfortable and cozy time each and every time we have visited here!

Turtle's Tap

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

Take through time with this next place, you can tell that it's a relic from your first glance outside, with that old brick building and the kind of rounded awning that simply isn't made anymore. There's plenty of room here for your celebration, plus we know everyone will enjoy the fact that the prices are so low here. The menu consists of a whole lot of bar favorites as well as some fried chicken that will really blow your mind and your tastebuds! The pig wings are always a favorite of ours here too. Can't find those anywhere else! Great service and a really wonderful time any day of the week! Love this one!
