Had not been there in years

My wife and I joined another couple for dinner at Jim's Steakhouse on a Saturday night. None of us had been to Jims in several years, but decided it might be nice to go back. Even though Jim's has been off of my radar, it was quite busy, which is usually indication of a good dining experience... read more

We went for brunch on Easter so we knew going in that it would be crowded and difficult. There were a lot of temp servers and we got one -- she tried but not as polished as a good server. We really liked all of the cold items on the buffet - the shrimp, oysters, salads, fruit, etc. Items were... More

The first time I dined at Jim's Steakhouse in Peoria was in 1996, the first year that the Illinois high school boys basketball tournament moved from Champaign-Urbana to Peoria. It came highly recommended by friends in Peoria who had been sampling Jim's prime steaks since the restaurant opened in 1960. I've been a regular customer during the state tournament ever... More

My wife and I travel and eat at restaurants here and abroad. For a great meal and good service you can't beat Jim's. Whether you have the wonderful steaks, or seafood- it's as good as you will find in much larger cities, and better than many. It's right here at home. Enjoy.

Walked in extremely dark.appetizers were fried frozen Food wouldn't recommend. Steak was great service was not great, heard bartender Karen complaining about how rude the owner was and servers complaining the whole time. Over all the only thing that we good was the steak, everything else seemed frozen. Unsatisfied customer with a 100 bill. OVERPRICED. Go there if you ready... More

Jim's is always a great dining experience. My only complaint is they have the lights turned down so low you can hardly read the menu. After we received our meal, they turned down the lights even further. I could hardly see what was on my plate. I saw a few people use a flashlight to read the menu. I'm all... More

Are you serious! Talk about ruining a classy old bar by installing those ugly, obnoxious video gambling machines. Come on now, do you really need the additional revenue that much? If so, increase the price of your drinks or dinners by 25 cents! We couldn't believe it and you actually have dining tables positioned near those monsters? Who the heck... More
