This place is overrated. The food was mediocre and I ended up sick after eating the Ahi Tuna. Poor food handling is essential for a seafood restaurant and this place fails in my experience. Others in the group who did not eat the tuna were fine but again the food was not worth the spend.

Love the Clam Chowder! All three times it was for lunch. Once brought my Texas sister who loved the spicey bloody mary and the fish selection. The second was with another family member who raved on the building and the freshness of even the salads. The last time with my husband, a Chef, he had the oysters and was very... More

Went to dinner after a meeting, service was slow but the dining room had maybe 8 tables full. Took 15 minutes to get our drinks which were good, and reasonable in cost. Waitress was reluctant to take our food order with our drink order but did so. Now we know why, salads and soup came out a minute after our... More

Took 2 ladies in their 90's for lunch (one in a wheelchair)..not a good idea. Two rather steep ramps to negotiate and no one offered to help....(we had reservations and they were told in advance about the wheelchair). By the way, they were not busy. Food and service was ok..nothing special. They would not box the free piece of birthday... More

If you're looking for a nice place to have good seafood in Peoria your choices are limited. We wanted a place with a river view and good food and Jonah's fit the bill. The food is good, the atmosphere is very nice, but the prices are a little elevated for Peoria. We've also had our anniversary dinners here and it's... More

We celebrated a birthday with lunch today. The restaurant is situated on the Illinois River and offers a beautiful view of the Peoria skyline. The staff was friendly and gave excellent service. The clam chowder was a highlight and the seven layer salad is my favorite. The tuna sandwich came with a side and was a huge charbroiled tuna steak.... More

Super GUMBO!!! Spicy!!! I thought, "no way is this bowl going to fill me up for a quick lunch." WRONG! It was outstanding. I walked away full and ready for the rest of my day. Quick service in the Oyster Bar. I wanted to stay for dinner, but work called.

Always a reliable place to gather whether it's family or friends. In summer love to eat out on their patio enjoying the river view. Salads, desserts are yummy. All is yummy! Favorite place for sure.

Ok been here a few times trying to give then a chance since I absolutely love seafood! Well, keep looking! Last 2 trips consisted of over cooked shrimp, rubber scallops like it was microwaved, and everything we had that had been fried tasted like old oil! Save your money! I've had better food from Red Lobster at half the price!

Went there with my family and had a very good and quiet dinner. Our table overlooked the river and it was so nice and peaceful. Love this place, I would always go here for special occasions when I lived back there, now I go there any time I am back home

Thank Danielle G
