To find a good romantic place to eat you must first find out what your definition of romance is. The concept of romance is a personal opinion. There are many different type of romance that exists. Galesburg, IL has three wonderful restaurants for all different type of romantic lovers. These restaurants range from the traditional quiet place to a place where the whole family can hang out and you can watch the one you love with your kids. I find the latter the most romantic.
Quiet romantic type
For the quiet secluded romantic type, the Best Western Prairie Inn would be the best choice. This hotel has a beautiful restaurant attached to it. All the booths are very private, with stained glass walls on three sides. The booths are big and in semicircle so that you can your loved one can sit next to each other. It has very soft lighting and they play a soft melody over the speaker. The atmosphere is complete with nice china displays in cabinets. This is a great place to talk and just share each other’s company.
The food is a little expensive. This is expected with such a nice quality environment. It is professional prepared in a kitchen with many talented chefs. They are a catering place also so there prices reflect as such.
Fun romantic type
If the idea of smiling and laughing is your definition of romance then Legends in Galesburg would be for you. This restaurant has a great dance floor. The entertainment is usually an impersonator of some idol from the 50′ or 60’s era. They are all very talented. Sometimes they include jokes in their act. The most famous character there is an Elvis Presley impersonator. This is my mom’s favorite. The lighting is bright and it is decorated to represent a diner.
The food is a great compromise of taste and price. They have wonderful deals for every budget. You do have to buy tickets to the shows in order to come and eat. They host wonderful parties there; I once threw a party for a friend there. They have little party rooms off to the side where you can seclude yourself from the main room if you are looking for a more private party.
Family romantic type
The most romantic thing for me is seeing my husband playing with the kids. There is something to be said about seeing the man I love interacting with the children that are a combination of the two of us. Traditionally, a family restaurant isn’t considered romantic, but if you are like me then Happy Joe’s is the place to bring the family. This is a pizza place with a game room for the kids and adults. It is much less crowded and quieter then any type of Chuckie Cheese. The focus is on the family having fun. All of there games can be played by all ages. Their booths have small stained glass chandeliers above the table.
This place is also great for the financial challenged. The food is not pricey at all. Ordering just one thing can feed the whole family. They do have cute ice cream sundaes, like a special one that is made to look like a clown. The food is very good. It is one of the best pizza’s you can order in Galesburg.
Romance is defined differently by everyone. It is a very subjective thing. This is why Galesburg, IL has a few different options for you and your loved ones to dine out. Just pick you type of romance and swing by these great restaurants.
