Are you hungry?

Grand Island has seen a significant influx of new restaurants in the past five years. Dining options now range from local steaks to Japanese cuisine and just about everything in between.

A plethora of national chains line Merchandise Mile along Highway 281. Fast food, ethnic food and sit-down dinners can all be had within a few short blocks of the many stores in this shopping district.

Downtown is peppered with locally owned restaurants that serve great burgers, stone-oven pizza, gourmet wraps and award-winning chili — for starters.

Great steakhouses and spicy Mexican dishes can be found on South Locust Street.
