We love bringing you the very best, each and every day. Made from scratch, made with love.

Special Events

Live and local music each week! This fills our Dam Event Space with melodies in the winter and our patio with them in the summer. Reserve a spot in the space with the musicians by booking River Song. Reserve a spot in the space without the musician, where you will still be able to hear the music a bit, just not see too well by booking Bistro Socially Distanced Dining.

Either way, please plan on having some food and drink with us while you listen πŸ™‚

Mother's Day is SOLD OUT!

Join us on the river to celebrate how much you love your mom by taking a scenic river boat cruise. Enjoy a gorgeous and relaxing cruise down the Fox River, narrated by our very own Anje! Then bring her back to the Bistro and treat her to an amazing buffet. You will solidify your position as her favorite child!

Four cruise times are available: 10 AM, 12 PM, & 2 PM
Buffet at River Tyme Bistro will follow the cruise. Buffet will have breakfast, brunch, lunch, linner & dinner on it so that you are able to choose anytime during the day to join us – or multiple times – so you can first bring your mom, then your step-mom, then your mother-in-law. See how thoughtful we are?

SOLD OUT! Thank you!!

$55 Adults/$45 Children 3-9/2 and under free – includes the boat ride, buffet at the bistro and transportation between. (does not include tax nor tip)


Skip the boat and just go straight to the Buffet! We understand that, too. If boats aren’t you nor your mom’s thing, then the River Tyme Bistro’s Moms’ Day Buffet is the way to go!

Check the links out below to see what times are still available!

SOLD OUT! Thank you!!

$28 per person



We needed to do a little something, so our chefs have prepared some
Ukrainian favorites. $5 from each item sold will be donated to
World Central Kitchen (WCK).
WCK is on the frontlines at a 24-hour pedestrian border crossing in
southern Poland– serving fresh, hot, and nutritious meals as well as
setting up outposts in Moldova, Slovakia and Hungary. They are also
working together with local restaurants in cities that are being hit hard
like Kyiv, Odessa and Iviv.
They need help!
Proceeds from the dishes as well as any additional donations
will be sent directly to WCK! Join us. Every bit helps!
