Great place for lunch or dinner if you want laid back "atmosphere". On the river with a rustic crude sort of vibe, but a fun place to hang out with friends and family. Very casual, but they have great hamburgers (wide menu choice) and wonderful homemade chips. Would recommend to anyone. Don't go if you only like neat and new... More

Burger Barge on the river has long been a local staple. The new 7000 square foot Burger Barge 2 is delightful. There are 3 separate themed restaurants under one roof. The food is always great and priced reasonably.

My husband and I had heard great reviews on the Burger Barge, plus it is rated #4 in East Peoria. When we arrived, the place was packed. We were seated immediately. Our drinks arrived promptly. The $2 bloody mary bar was interesting, not a bad idea. But if you are going to have an open serving area, make sure that... More

I had researched the Burger Barge before visiting, however I was very disappointed. The food was mediocre, and you have to pay extra for fries. I ordered a fish basked which looked like a children's meal with adult prices. Not impressed.

This is a great place! The place is usually packed for lunch and dinner. Food is great, atmosphere is great - they put their effort into the food, not the place. If you are looking for great food where flip flops and jeans are the dress code, you will love the Burger Barge.

After reading about the Burger Barge online we decided to check it our for lunch. We had read the menu ahead of time so I had a good idea of what they had. We both ordered burgers from the list of many unique choices. We both were really pleased with our selection. Both very tasty and made with good products.... More
