Visit Lake County is hosting hosts its third annual Lake County Restaurant Week from through March 11.

More than 50 restaurants are participating in the late winter event all across Lake County. Each restaurant is providing a different dining offer or a prix fixe menu for the event. The event is sponsored in part by 102.3 WXLC.

Lake County Restaurant Week was very successful in its inception year in 2016. The 2017 installment achieved more traction and growth in its sophomore effort and Visit Lake County is excited to see how it grows in the third year, organizers said.

"Restaurant Week allows us to showcase the many unique dining experiences in Lake County from family-friendly establishments to steakhouses and sports bars. We encourage people to take advantage of the special offers and get out and try a new restaurant," said Visit Lake County President Maureen Riedy.

For more information and updates about the event, visit Foodie visitors are urged to dine, discover and share their experiences on social media using #LakeCountyRW.
