STEPHENSON COUNTY, Ill. (WIFR) - Attention foodies! If you are looking for great deals to support local restaurants, take the drive to Stephenson County from April 23 to May 1.

The Greater Freeport Partnership is putting on this nine-day event, where patrons are encouraged to seek out dining options from area restaurants that are offering featured dishes.

Freeport and Stephenson County are home to more than 95 restaurants, cafés, bars, lounges, and delis, each with a unique flavor or environment. The Stephenson County Restaurant Guide can be found online and in participating restaurants in the county and includes featured specials from restaurants as well as a complete contact listing. The online guide can be found at here.

“Stephenson County are filled with great restaurants with a wide variety of dishes and delights. We are happy to highlight the many options that are available locally and hope that residents and visitors will make extra effort to support restaurants during this special time and throughout the season,” said Bill Clow, business engagement director of the Greater Freeport Partnership.

Restaurants have selected menu items that highlight their best options and fit the tone of their establishment.

“Make it your goal during Restaurant Week to try at least three new places you haven’t had before. We all get in the habit of ordering from the same places and miss so much. Restaurant Week is the extra invitation to exit your comfort zone and support local dining,” said Brand Director Nicole Haas.

“Especially now following COVID-19, our area restaurants appreciate support in all forms. The hospitality industry was the hardest hit during the pandemic and Restaurant Week celebrates the return we have been waiting for,” said Clow.

Dine-in, delivery and carry-out options are available at various locations.

Stephenson County Restaurant Week is sponsored in part by Exchange Street Printery and Hayes Distributing. Follow the Greater Freeport Partnership and ALL IN Stephenson County social media channels for more information, restaurant videos and daily specials throughout restaurant week.

The Greater Freeport Partnership is a collaboration of business, community, visitor and economic development services with the mission to promote and grow Freeport and Stephenson County.
