In compliance with Gov. J.B. Pritzker's coronavirus mandate, restaurants and bars in Chester have closed to indoor service. Several are now offering curbside and/or delivery, but some have closed completely.

Most owners and managers have expressed a sincere desire to help control the spread of the virus by closing their businesses, while at the same time, they worry for their livelihoods and that of their employees.

Below is the latest update of the restaurant options in Chester. If you are a business that needs to change its listing -- or if you aren't on here at all and want to be -- alert the Chester chamber office.

We strongly suggest you call most of these places before you go out. Things can change quickly.
