Current Dining Options in the Willmar Lakes Area

In need of a delicious lunch or supper, but not sure where to go now that the Governor has enforced a Stay Safe MN plan and put limitations on our restaurants, bars and coffee shops? We’re here to help!

The Willmar Lakes Area is home to a wide variety of places to eat and drink and many of them have a drive-thru, outdoor dining and most have opened with limited capacity.  But did you also know about the many restaurants now offering curbside pick-up for those that want to satisfy that steak dinner or chicken Alfredo craving? And have you heard about the two food delivery businesses in the Willmar area?

DoorDash is food delivery anywhere you go. With one of the largest networks of restaurant delivery options in Willmar, choose from 17 restaurants near you delivered in under an hour! Enjoy the most delicious Willmar restaurants from the comfort of your home or office. Browse by name, cuisine, or staff picks personalized to your location.

Food Dudes is a restaurant delivery service with locations throughout the Midwest. They work with restaurant partners and deliver their food to homes, offices and hotels. Their website features online ordering and up-to-date restaurant menus.

We have created a list of restaurants with drive-thru, curbside pick-up, outdoor dining and those that have opened indoor dining to help you keep informed about the many dining options in our area. All area restaurants are following the CDC guidelines for reopening.

We also found a helpful article from Taste of Home about 12 Do’s and Don’ts for Avoiding Germs at Restaurants.
