Everyday Kitchen Restaurant and Bar – Champaign
Because we are a scratch kitchen, we are able to take advantage of seasons to offer up a fresh menu every few months. Every dish and every beverage are prepared with excellence, presented with sophistication, and imbued with vibrant flavors and bold combinations.
This was our first time eating here and it was delish!
Our waiter was very negative from the minute he saw us enter. He complained about people sitting at their table with no mask on. I immediately put mine back on and said I didn’t mind wearing it while I waited for our food and his response was “why bother, nobody else does”. Maybe he should reconsider whether being a waiter is going to be good for him right now. BTW, besides my table, there was only one other table occupied. The food was good
Lovely restaurant, healthy food options, fresh ambiance.
We are so glad you think so! See you again soon!
This restaurant is a jewel. Always great food. Allen our waiter did an outstanding job.
First time and LOVED IT!
Oh, so glad to hear it! When will your second visit be?! Soon we hope! Thanks, Francophile19!
Excellent food and service. Ordered the chicken and pulled pork dishes. Highly recommend. Carrot cake outstanding.
So glad you enjoyed your dinner! Thank you for the very nice review. Cheers!
An unexpected surprise that we often don't get when traveling to a new city and no recommendation in hand. A short distance from downtown but well worth the 1 mile drive. Brand new restaurant co-located in a community center set up. The reuben slider appetizer served on latkes was outstanding. You have to experience them to understand. The design of the bar, seating, and lighting added to a wonderful experience. Since it was slow that evening ,the chef came out to check on our meal and we had a wonderful conversation about the restaurant and what they are trying to do. Nice in every way.
We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again soon! Thank you for your kind review!
My son and I had stopped overnight in Champaign and found Everyday through Opentable. Everything about the experience was outstanding and if we were local, I would make a point to check off every option from their extremely diverse menu. The staff were even kind enough to bake a fresh cobbler on the spot when they realized that they had run out. Thanks Everyday!
DAVIDW, Thank you for your kind review and thank you for trying us out! Glad we could get you that cobbler! We hope to see you next time on your way through.
Great meal..Sat outside on a beautiful night. Had rhe wedge salad and the pasta bolognese..very good
Thank you, Spartan. We are so very glad you enjoyed your experience and hope to see you again soon!
So glad to enjoy the patio, terrific cocktails, excellent food, and lovely service. This is a wonderful local restaurant that does an excellent job with fresh, local ingredients.
Thank you so much for your kind review! We always appreciate hearing from our wonderful guests and are so glad you had a great experience!
Had Father’s Day breakfast. It was fine, got the food we ordered, really nice servers, food was good but nothing exceptional.
Hi Richard, Thank you for visiting us on Fathers Day. We hope you will come back and join us again soon as we reopened with dine in services on Friday, June 26th as well as a new Summer menu full of favorites and new dishes. Earlier this month we were serving a modified menu and we look forward to serving you our wide range of dishes the Chef has been creating!
The checks were terribly messed up. Wrong orders for our party. Server wasn't very nice. Asked for a coffee weve had previously that wasnt on the menu and got rude. One persons food didnt come out until others were done completely. They tried to make right by comping that persons food thankfully.
Hi Michael, We value feedback from our guests and I would like to hear more about your experience. I will reach out to you so we can connect. Sincerely, Teresa Managing Director, Lodgic Everyday Community
Great food.. the tacos and salad were great. Will be back for sure.
Cathy, Thanks for the visit, it was wonderful having you with us! We wanted to let you know that we have a new Summer menu (and an open dining room!) full of delicious new dishes for you to try. See you soon! The Everyday Kitchen Team
It was a beautiful day and was able to enjoy it with great food.
We are glad you stopped by and enjoyed time on our patio! We look forward to having you with us again soon. The Everyday Kitchen Team
Wonderful service, great salads, and loved the patio seating.
Beautiful evening with another couple. Few customers and three waitstaff—— our server had to wear a face mask, but he spoke so fast that he was hard to understand. We had four different items and only the meatloaf was well accepted.
They do a great job providing service in the middle of this pandemic, where we can only eat outside. They have a lot of space to eat outside and you can easily be far apart from other patrons. In addition, all of the wait staff are wearing gloves and masks and are very friendly. The service and the food is excellent! I loved the menu choices. The chef is very creative. I highly recommend this restaurant and I can't wait until we can frequent it indoors. Their decor indoors is unique.
Everyone is so nice & accommodating.
The food is delicious.
Cory was our server and I don’t think I poured myself a single glass of wine from the bottle. Food was great! I’ll be back
The brunch selections were good. I really like Everyday Kitchen, but they should have the beet salad on ALL the menus :)
All good—food, service, ambience. We very much liked the low noise level that let us enjoy our conversations.
Excellent service and good food. This was my 3rd time and have had good service and food all 3 times.
Absolutely horrible service! Was flat out lied to by our server, thankfully another picked up the slack. Our server made me feel like she was doing me a favor refilling my coffee.
We enjoyed our experience. This was our first time at Everyday Kitchen. We will be a little more discerning about menu choices the next time.
This is a hidden gem that most people have never heard of. I have season tickets to Illini football and basketball games and this is my go to place for dinner before or after a game. You have to order the double pork chop as it is the biggest pork chop you've ever seen and cooked to perfection! A little sweet potato mash on the side and you'll be a happy camper.
They ran out of 50% of the menu. They should’ve told us before they seated us and we started ordering to find out half the menu was not available.
Thank-you for your feedback, we always appreciate the opportunity for improvement. After a busy Valentine's weekend we had unfortunately sold out of quite a few dishes. We will definitely do a better job of alerting our guests before they are seated. We are very sorry this impacted your dining experience with us on that evening. If you could send me an email, we would love the opportunity to make it right. -Betsy Waller, Restaurant Manager email@example.com
I always enjoy the atmosphere and service here! The shrimp pasta wasn’t exactly what I was expecting but it was tasty. Everyone in my party enjoyed their food. Bring a sweater - it can be a little chilly!
KiaA, Thank-you for your feedback and kind review! -Betsy Waller, Restaurant Manager firstname.lastname@example.org
Great place, eclectic atmosphere, superb service, and creative fun food. We had a delightful time, and will be back!
ChuckK, So glad you had a nice time! Thank you for your feedback and review. We look forward to seeing you again! -Betsy Waller, Restaurant Manager email@example.com
I dined at Everyday Kitchen on a Friday evening. The restaurant was not full when I arrived, yet it took quite a while for a server to bring me water or ask for my drink order. Once I ordered, my salad came before my wine, and then my main dish took a long time to arrive. While my food was quite delicious, the service and price point would keep me from coming back.
Food was great. Two of us hadn’t been there before and really enjoyed the experience and the food. We ordered 3 desserts to share and enjoyed all 3. We couldn’t decide which we liked best. We love the concept of this nonprofit.
Thank you for leaving us such a great review Patricia! If you enjoy Brunch you should definitely stop by and try ours! Bridgette Brdecka (Restaurant Manager)
We loved the food and the setting. It was classy yet cozy. The Reuben Sliders, the salad, the cocktails were amazing. Connor was a fabulous server and was incredibly helpful to the two elderly people in our party.
The food was wonderful! our waiter, Eric, was very helpful at narrowing down our choices. He didn't steer us wrong! It was my husband's birthday and everyone in the restaurant wished him Happy Birthday!
Great experience - we'll be back!
Thank you so much for spending your celebration with us! We are so glad you had such a great time! Bridgette Brdecka (Restaurant Manager)
Good food and service.
Thank you for the review! Bridgett Brdecka (Restaurant Manager)
The wait staff, concerned that there was a cold draft near our table, provided us with a small space heater. Amazing!
Thank you for leaving us such a kind review! Bridgette Brdecka (Restaurant Manager)
The decor is wonderful and the concept is awesome. I have had really great food there but was disappointed in the pot roast on the lunch menu. Also when you want a leisurely lunch with a friend after the rush hours, closing at three is not very accommodating. Thankfully we moved to the cafe next door and had some scrumptious zucchini sticks and dessert plus coffee!
Hi Connie, we are so glad you enjoyed your time at Clever Moose! I will share your review with our team, and we hope you join us again soon! Bridgette Brdecka (Restaurant Manager-Bridgette.Brdecka@Lodgic.org)
Great place to celebrate my birthday! Thanks to everyone at LODGIC & everyday kitchen 🎂
We appreciate the very kind review! Bridgette Brdecka-Restaurant Manager (Bridgette.firstname.lastname@example.org)
Overpriced and plain, not very tasty food. $26 for red sauce over noodles with overcooked shrimp is ridiculous.

Our first time at this spot and it was a good choice! Great food and experience. We had brunch, but will be back to try them for dinner!
Thank you for the 5 stars MicheleS! We hope you will try our dinner out soon! Bridgette Brdecka, Restaurant Manager (Bridgette.email@example.com)
Ambiance/ design of restaurant was beautiful. Menu and food was underwhelming
Hi there- Thank you so much for your feedback, we will share this with our team to keep improving our menu! Do not hesitate to email me at Bridgette.Brdecka@lodgic.org if you have anything further to share. Bridgette Brdecka (Restaurant Manager)
Although it was not busy server seemed distracted and inefficient, my water glass was almost empty for most of the meal and I had to ask him for a refill. My companion's Chicken Pot Pie was tasty, with a lovely buttery crust and plenty of chicken, my Wiener Schnitzel was gross. It had been over cooked to just short of burnt in oil that was not fresh, leaving a bad taste that lingered. The wine seemed way over priced, I expected my $9 glass of Sauvignon Blanc to be a noticeable improvement over Winking Owl...sadly no.
Good afternoon Dina, I would like to thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback regarding your visit. We are committed to providing our guests with a world-class experience and cannot improve without your honesty. I will share this with our team in order to better our standard of food and service quality, as well as, understanding the importance of providing guests with the best experience in Champaign.
