Hotel Nauvoo (Restaurant)

Dining at the Hotel Nauvoo is an experience for all the senses. The Buffet is a gourmet's tour de force, with a quantity and variety that will challenge even the biggest appetite to sample every item on the buffet.

Some of the entrées featured on our buffet are southern fried chicken, channel catfish, carved roast beef, turkey, and ham. Our famous wild rice dressing along with vegetables, potatoes, and homemade breads, and a forty item salad bar will satisfy even the most discriminating palate. There is also a full menu for those who prefer to dine a la carte.

The five dining rooms reflect five different periods of Nauvoo's history in sumptuous luxury and comfort. Service is old-fashioned and impeccable. Please be our special guest as we celebrate over 68 years of service.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

The historic Hotel Nauvoo inn and restaurant, operated for four generations by the Kraus family, houses artfully appointed guest rooms in the style of the approximately 175 year-old building without sparing any modern convenience. This famous building dates back to the Mormon period of Nauvoo history, built in part by J. J. Brendt, a Latter Day Saint, and completed by Adam Swartz, a German immigrant.
