Hotel Nauvoo Restaurant was the perfect place to take friends to whom I wanted to show appreciation for favors. We drove around the town and saw majestic Canadian geese with their young families as well as the Mississippi River.

The food here was amazing. The price reflects the quality of food, so don't go here if you are planning to dine on a budget.

The Hotel Nauvoo restaurant closes during the winter when there are few guests in Nauvoo. They typically reopen in March. Check them on-line. I just phoned them - the dining room will reopen on 17 March.
