Idlewild also offers wonderful dining options and is known for having the “best food in the south suburbs”.  Whether you prefer to dine in our quaint dining room and lounge, at one of the bars or al fresco on the patio, Chef Jeff’s cuisine is sure to delight all.  In addition, from Memorial Day to Labor Day the outdoor pool is open and offers “resort style” food and beverage service…just lay back, relax and enjoy the summer!

Thank you for all of your efforts to make our wedding night a smashing success.  Everything was as good as advertised, and in many cases BETTER than advertised!  The room was gorgeous and the food was outstanding.  The entire staff was professional and courteous, not only attending to our every need but anticipating them as well.  Best of all, our guests had a wonderful time, and we have received nothing but compliments about the beautiful reception.  We will absolutely be recommending Idlewild to family & friends!”
