We went on a crowded Friday night and opted to sit in the Oyster Bar side of the restaurant. They have a different menu, but you can order anything from the restaurant side. Two of us had the fried oysters and they were good but I've had better. One had a doz on the half shell and they were great.... More

We took our son and daughter-in-law here for his birthday dinner and had a very nice dinner, although thier portions seem much smaller than they use to. Our waitress was outstanding and even gave our son a big piece of birthday cake to take home. Very nice restaurant in a nice location with a river view.

Had dined here before and had a very good experience. The second time was no different. Ample, well lit parking. Very friendly hostess. Good, relaxed atmosphere. Great service and very good, fresh seafood.

Had the mahi Oscar with a side of grits. Excellent. Key lime pie could have been a little more tart. Definitely be back

We had the stuffed mushrooms and crab cocktail for appetizers, they were barely edible. The Cesar salad needed more dressing and some fresh pepper would have been nice, but it wasn't offered. We both had steak and lobster; neither had any flavor. We were terribly disappointed. The steak was dry and tasteless. Seriously, the few garnishing mushrooms had more flavor... More

Went here for birthday dinner with my husband. We sat upstairs which we did not even know existed! Chelsea was our server and could not have been nicer. She was very attentive but not intrusive which we really appreciated. I had the salmon and it was fabulous - looking forward to having it again (hopefully soon). We did have drink... More

Absolutely the Finest Crawfish etoufee I have ever eaten. The grouper sandwich is always excellent. The restaurant dinning experience is always top notch.

The best fresh fish at a restaurant in Peoria is a Jonah's. Fixed how you like it with a wide variety of sides and appetizers you will not go away hungry. I had fresh Canadian Walleye grilled and it was delicious. My friend had Walleye as well but with a special cream sauce that was equally good. The just opened... More
