Restaurants

If you love exploring a new place through the food culture, you’re going to adore Kenosha. From gastropub offerings of craft beer and fried cheese curds to fine dining experiences with wine flights and tapas-style small plate cuisine, there is something for every taste and budget.

You'll find that our community’s locally-owned restaurants are places where you can eat like a local and catch a glimpse of the town’s personality. Many are family-owned businesses with multiple generations on staff. The owners tend to support local events, source their food locally, and use fresh ingredients in seasonal menus. You’ll frequently see the owners greeting you at the door or even serving tables. Good customer service is paramount. You are more likely able to talk to the chef and have a dish customized.  Each restaurant is unique and has its own story to tell … one dish at a time!
