Lodge Restaurant

White Pines Resort, located near Rockford, is home to one of northern Illinois' landmark restaurants. The home-style cuisine blends perfectly with the log cabin decor. Generous portions of mostly homemade dishes fill the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, six days a week. Each  Sunday the area's largest breakfast buffet is offered up with its spread of hearty home cooking from 8am til 2pm.  Every year the regional  Sauk Valley Newspaper runs a contest and every year White Pines wins - Best Buffet bragging rights!  

Enjoy White Pines' famous Paul Bunyan Breakfast served family style: large platters filled with eggs, buttermilk or blueberry pancakes, American fries, toast, sausage, and bacon. Still hungry? Just ask for more and we'll keep it coming!

Lunches range from homemade soups and hearty sandwiches served on home-baked breads, to more substantial entrees like our famous Chicken Pot Pie. The Sweet Tooth Sampler is always a favorite for guests of all ages!

Our menu expands at dinner offering steaks and seafood. Save room as you’ll find it hard to turn down dessert. The White Pines chef takes great pride in their creations, especially their Pine Creek Cobblers, and our signature Red Raspberry Pie.

The tradition of good food, generous portions, and friendly service extends to business meetings, seminars, retreats, wedding receptions, anniversary parties, memorial celebrations, picnics, Christmas parties, banquets and family reunions.
