Side Trips from Chicago Restaurants


Popeye's on Lake Geneva

Popeye's on Lake Geneva Review

Chances are you'll smell the slow-roasted rotisserie chicken before you reach this lakefront restaurant, a family-friendly institution for locals and visitors alike since 1972. Fittingly adorned with nautical décor—think ropes, netting, a mermaid, and tables topped with treasure maps—Popeye's also serves a rocking Friday-night fish fry and homemade broccoli cheddar soup. Expect a bustling crowd during the summer.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
