This was a first visit after a long absence from this restaurant. Unfortunately, the experience reconfirmed prior visits. The restaurant has many strong positives, but, in our experience, fails to pull everything together on a given visit. First, the positives. This restaurant is well located with great river views. The addition of a fresh market to the existing oyster bar... More

We were attending a conference in the area and decided to go to Jonah's. WOW was that the right choice! Great atmosphere to visit in comfort, superior service, and mouth watering appetizers, and entrees. This is a real jewel here in the Midwest and as good as you'll find "coast to coast". Might be somewhat pricey for some but let... More

We are here last year while in town and I remember it being better than this time around. We ate the crab cake appetizer which was ok, I have had better. I ordered the Grouper broiled. The waiter said I should get that Oscar style but I declined. I want the natural fish taste and nothing to mask it. The... More

This was our first visit to the Peoria area, so we relied on our Trip Advisor app to find a good restaurant close to our lodging. My wife and I were not disappointed. We took a shot with Jonah's and found the seafood excellent. It is almost like having dinner on the Gulf Shores, but on the Illinois River. The... More

So Jonah's has the main restaurant and the oyster bar. We found out the difference is you can order of either menu in the Bar during the week, but not the restaurant menu on weekends. We ate off the bar menu. I had blackened grouper sandwich and my friend the Norwegian cod sandwiches and Crab and Shrimp nachos 1/2 serving.... More

This is one of the best restaurants in the area. Whether you chose the Oyster Bar side of the restaurant (different menu, more laid back) or the Jonah's side, you are sure to have a great time AND a great meal, all in a great atmosphere! The seafood is always fresh and there are things to order if you don't... More
