For well over 70 years, you have been friends, and you have been family. Our hearts continue to go out to you and your loved ones as the world responds to the continuing pandemic. Illinois restaurants remain under operating restrictions. For your safety, our dining rooms remain temporarily closed, but overnight rooms in our historic inn remain open all year.

We are hopeful that restaurants will be allowed to return safely to normal operations later in 2021. When they are, you will be impressed, and we will be humbled to once again have you as our valued guest. Stay safe. We will get through this together.

Dining at the Hotel Nauvoo is an experience for all the senses. The Buffet is a gourmet's tour de force, with a quantity and variety that will challenge even the biggest appetite to sample every item on the buffet. Some of the entrées featured on our buffet are southern fried chicken, channel catfish, carved roast beef, turkey, and ham. Our famous wild rice dressing along with vegetables, potatoes, and homemade breads, and a forty item salad bar will satisfy even the most discriminating palate. There is also a full menu (pdf) for those who prefer to dine a la carte.

The five dining rooms reflect five different periods of Nauvoo's history in sumptuous luxury and comfort. Service is old-fashioned and impeccable. Please be our special guest as we celebrate over 70 years of service.
