This is as good as a buffet gets. The variety, food quality and taste are delightful. If you love food eat here when in Nauvoo. I particularly liked the fried chicken and the roast beef.

We are here two nights in a row because even though it is about the only restaurant in town, it was legitimately excellent food. We ate the buffet (I don't even know if there is a menu) both times. It is real home cooking. The...More

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.
