The beachfront property also boasts its own eatery. Nolan’s Restaurant will be open to the public offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner for hotel guests. Dinner reservations for July 1 and beyond can be made starting June 27 by calling 224-259-2600. For the first few weeks, Nolan’s will serve from a limited menu and reservations will be required.

“We are thrilled about the opportunity to reopen the Illinois Beach Hotel and its new restaurant, Nolan’s,” said general manager Jason Smith. “Our desire is to support and enhance the community by bringing back events such as Sunday and holiday brunches, as well as offering a few new and interesting dining and entertainment concepts. We want folks to know our hospitality extends beyond just our out-of-town guests, and that we are grateful to be able to serve the local community as a whole.”
