Delicious On-site Restaurant Options

A restaurant to suit every taste

At KeyLime Cove Indoor Waterpark Resort in Gurnee, Illinois we understand kids. Many of us are parents ourselves and we spend every day surrounded by children so we know that they enjoy lots of variety, excitement, and fun! And we’re happy to fulfill most every request.

After hours spent splashing around at the Waterpark, kids build up a hearty appetite and we have made sure there is something to appeal to even the most demanding little palate! With six food and beverage locations on site*, you’ll find everything from robust Caribbean flavors to comfort foods like burgers and hot dogs to sweet treats at the old-fashioned soda fountain.

Best of all, our restaurants in Gurnee, IL are all kid friendly, open to the public (including those who are not guests of the Waterpark), and serve meals that are crafted from the finest and freshest ingredients available.

*Restaurant hours are managed according to hotel occupancy and may be closed during lower occupancy periods. Please check with the resort for current hours of operation.
