Check out our guide to the best places to take a date in Matteson below, and let us know if we missed any of your favorites!

Odyssey Fun World

Just a short drive away in Tinley Park, Odyssey Fun World is an enormous getaway jam-packed with games, rides, and other attractions that bring out the kid in all of us, including mini-golf, ziplining, a huge arcade, batting cages, indoor bumper cars, and more. Families flock to Odyssey during the day, but the park features later hours on Fridays and Saturdays that make it a great spot for adults to visit. There are even substantial food options like burgers and Italian beef that make dinner feasible if you find yourself having too much fun to split.

Hidden Manna Cafe

Southern American and Cajun cuisine offers some of the most comforting and delicious flavors in the western hemisphere! And there’s no place better north of the Mason-Dixon line to sample it than at Hidden Manna Cafe, right here in Matteson. With its intimate interior tucked away inside a building with looks plucked straight from the Bayou, and a dinner menu featuring classics like jambalaya, etouffee, bluegill, and shrimp & grits, you’re sure to find food you love that begs to be talked about.

A. Fusion

Decent Asian delicacies are a hard find in the Midwest – and that’s why A. Fusion is such a privilege to have right in Matteson. Featuring a full range of dishes from Japan to Vietnam, sushi to curry, A. Fusion offers diners both group options like exciting hibachi specials, along with creative and modern takes on sushi, stir fry, duck, and seafood.

Tin Fish

With an unwavering dedication to freshness, Tin Fish treats diners making the trip to Tinley Park with seafood flown in six days a week from all over American coasts and lakes. The best dishes on this menu don’t even need a description: Just pick your protein — whether it’s homier catfish, delicate Georges Bank scallops, or a wide selection of others — its preparation (blackened, grilled, sauteed, breaded, or garlic charred), and one of a delicious variety of sides. Here, the ingredients shine through, even when the preparation gets more complicated. And of course, you and your date will enjoy the dining room, inspired by the Atlantic shore seafood houses of the 1940s!
