Bradley is a village in the county of Kankakee, Illinois, and at last census count they were boasting just about thirteen thousand happy residents. Many people head into the area to go shopping at Northfield Square Mall, and perhaps that's the reason that you're researching dining and entertainment in the area too. If you're visiting Bradley anytime soon, check out these bars and restaurants below, our very favorites in the 60915 zip code!
LA VILLETTA RESTAURANT
We believe that La Villetta Restaurant is the best dining establishment in all of Bradley. This Italian restaurant has all of your favorites, from penne to linguine, from spaghetti to tortellini! You will want to note that if you're a vegetarian, even their marinara sauce has meat in it, so you'll have to be very careful when ordering. The ambiance inside is very authentic and inviting, and the service is truly excellent. It's not a very large restaurant so when it gets crowded you may have to wait a bit, but it's worth it! Very highly recommended.
Address: 801 West Broadway Street
APPLEBEE'S NEIGHBORHOOD GRILL
Applebee's Neighborhood Grill gets our recommendation because of its casual and comfortable atmosphere, its excellent and attentive service, and most of all for its delicious entrees and appetizers that keep us coming back for more. Instead of sticking to the standards on the menu, we love to come in on a semi-regular basis to try the seasonal specials. Everything is always wonderful, and we can hang out at the bar after dinner to wind up the great conversation and decide where to go next. We love it here and we know you will too!

Monical's Pizza is one of the very best places in Bradley to get some truly delicious pizza and pasta! It's just a casual laid back family style restaurant, but that's precisely why we love it so much. You will not find a more comfortable atmosphere anywhere else. You'll be surprised by how wonderful the service is here too, very attentive and old fashioned. If you enjoy family style restaurants as much as we do, be sure to check out Monical's when you're in the area. Wonderful food.

MANCINO'S PIZZA & GRINDERS
Mancino's Pizza & Grinders has all your favorite Italian and American classics, from pizza to pasta. The vegans and vegeterians in your group won't have a hard time finding something that meshes with their diet here, so that's a plus too. We're big fans of the grinders, because they really overload them with a ton of toppings and then they cook them just right. There's nothing better than a hot delicious grinder from Mancino's!

Red Lobster is such a classic, how could we not mention it here? The nautical vibe that extends throughout the restaurant will really take you back in time to the days when a restaurant meal was something special. And it feels special here because the staff really goes out of their way to make sure that you are comfortable and happy with your meal. We love going during the seasonal specials to enjoy their snow crab legs or king crab legs, and of course those lobster and shrimp specials! Everything is so good here... and don't forget those wonderful cheesy biscuits! So good!

Panda Express is one of our favorite quick stops when we're in a big hurry and are craving some delicious Chinese food. Many skip over this place because they think it's "mall food" or "fast food," and it certainly is fast, but it's all wok-cooked and very fresh! When you're in a rush, nothing beats a hot Chinese meal from Panda Express. Their menu offerings range from the traditional favorites that you'd find on any Chinese menu, to exciting new taste creations. We love this place and if you haven't tried it yet, you owe it to yourself to take a taste!

OLIVER'S BAR & GRILL
Oliver's Bar & Grill is a really charming place to hang out on the weekends with friends, or any day of the week really, but the reason we really love it best is for those big birthday celebrations and private parties. Renting out the space for your personal functions is such a cool way to treat your friends to something unique and secial. We love their custom buffet catering, and their paninis and salads are two of the best things on their regular menu! Great drinks too, very strong and never watered down, and not expensive either! Nice selection of beers too. Highly recommended.
Address: 800 North Kinzie
LEGACY BAR & GRILL
Legacy Bar & Grill is our go-to spot on Sundays for an incredible deal on pizza! They're just six bucks, and so generously sized and delicious! The draft beers are priced at just fifty cents on Sundays too, so you can really go in and have a great meal plus drinks and still save a bundle of cash. You may have previously known this place as Skinny's Tap, but if you haven't been in since then, be sure to check it out. They've completely remodeled it and it's really fantastic. One of our favorite bars in the area.
Address: 135 North Kinzie Avenue

THE SPOT ON BROADWAY
The Spot on Broadway is an all American grill with all those traditional bar favorites like burgers, sandwiches, salads, and of course cheap drinks that are never watered down! We love to stop in any time we're in the Bradley area for a good stiff drink and a quick lunch or dinner. The staff is incredibly friendly and they always make sure that you're having a great time, and most of all that your food and drinks are satisfactory.
