Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, MI will close The Hard Rock Cafe on Oct. 31 and replace it with the Kankakee Grille, a comfort food venue featuring live music.

Kankakee Grille originated at Four Winds South Bend.

We are excited to introduce this unique dining and entertainment experience to guests that visit our flagship resort."
