Each restaurant will be offering one to three menu items exclusive to Restaurant Week.

Experience authentic Effingham cuisine – everything from gourmet pastas to home-cooked Southern fare. Not only will you discover delicious cooking to satisfy your appetite, but some of our establishments will also be offering exclusive beverages (coffee, cocktails and more), as well. 

“Restaurant Week is something the CVB felt inclined to coordinate this year. We believe this event will offer the community something to look forward to and give residents and visitors, both, a reason to explore our diverse and exciting restaurant scene. Even more so, we think this is a great opportunity to show our support of our fellow hospitality professionals during what has been a trying time for all. We envision this will become a local tradition we can look forward to year after year,” said Tourism Director, Jodi Thoele.
