We never miss going to Jonah's when we are staying in East Peoria or even just passing thru. This time we were in town for three days & stopped into Jonah's every day. Once for lunch, once for appetizers and martinis (nice selection of both), and once for late night beverages. If you like oysters on the half shell, they... More

We've been coming here for years and have always had a pleasant experience. We were seated in the main dining area although we had requested the deck. Our server, Sam M, as stated on the bill, was excellent and definitely earned a tip well above the standard 20%. I had the lemon snapper with the Acadia preparation which was not... More

Oysters and Grey Goose - both served perfectly! Love this place and always make a point to stop in when I am in town. Get the bar menu - all the selections are awesome! I particularly like the ahi tuna on the greens.

Had a very pleasant dinner here with 4 business associates. We let waitress pick (who would know better) and we got great tasting entrees. (I received the seared Ahi).

Lovely evening spent here. French onion soup out of this world and the fresh oysters delicious! Bar service a little slow but maybe I had too many...! Overall a great evening and loved all the seafood selections, food and great Martinis!!

great place on the river in E. Peoria. Actually 3 different restaurants in one. On the left side of building is the Oyster bar, good atmosphere where you can sit at bar or surrounding booths at tables order drinks or have a meal. Change their oyster selection weekly on what's fresh, hint- can order a shrimp po' boy that's not... More

Summer is not complete without enjoying the casual outdoor dining at Jonah's. We were able to visit twice this month & tried the shrimp & crab nachos, what a treat! Also, had delicious grouper & cod sandwiches, with oven fries & a salad. Key lime pie for dessert was very good, plus a huge piece of complimentary chocolate birthday cake!... More

Bill the bartender barely acknowledges you, and pours you a small glass of wine, but the table service was ten times better, didn't catch the young ladies name probably b/c I was enjoying my service and ahi tuna too much but the bar was horrible....I reiterate

Thank Nic R
