Best restaurant in central Illinois.
Our family recently traveled to Champaign for a family member's funeral. Because no one in the family still lives in Champaign, we needed to find a gathering place for all the out of town family and close friends to gather for lunch after the service. We found Kennedy's at Stone Creek after doing some web searches. They were able to accommodate us in a private dining room (no extra charge) and had a menu printed for guests with four options.
Perfect for a family/friends gathering. There were 5 or 6 round tables, close enough together that we all were able to mingle and share stories. The room overlooked a golf course, which provided a great view!
I was pleasantly surprised at the food quality. Since we ended up going with fixed menu options, I was a bit skeptical (group "luncheons" don't always taste great). The salad was very fresh, pretty much your standard mixed greens side salad. I had the Chicken Breast Saute, which was fantastic. It was a light and flavoral lunch entree with roma tomatoes, basil, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, and penne pasta.
Very reasonable. I think it was $11-14 per person which included an entree, salad, rolls, coffee/tea, tax, & gratuity. For the type of private lunch we ended up having, it was a great value.
Excellent. Surprisingly so...whenever the gratuity is pre-paid I tend to experience mediocre service. Not here. Drinks were consistently refilled and servers came by with extra rolls throughout the meal.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend Kennedy's. They helped create a memorable lunch after a difficult event.
