Brasky's is a nice local secret. It's a very basic bar, but has really excellent food. They serve a whole bone-in catfish that is absolutely delicious. Onion rings and gumbo go nicely with it. Service is friendly and efficient. For the price range, you won't find much better food. I recommend giving it a try.

We went for lunch and they had lunch specials. We ordered the turkey club. I had sweet potato fries and my husband had coleslaw with his. Everything was delicious and the service was great. The sweet potato fries were amazing.

Food is amazing! We were looking for a nice bar and grill and they did not disappoint. We have a party of about 15 and they were quick to accommodate! Had a burger with onion rings on it. Onion rings might be the best we've ever had! If we are ever in Peoria and looking for good food and the... More

I went to Brasky's for the first time with a friend who lived near by and frequents Brasky's often. Her comment was, "I've never found anything here that wasn't good." To begin with, the menu has wide variety of choices, so there is something for everyone. I had a turkey club on Texas toast with waffle fries, and it was... More

We were visiting a friend with our toddler granddaughter along. My friend suggested we try this neighborhood eatery, and am I glad we did!

We need more of these... More

i had the deep-fried cheeseburger. It was great nice and juicy and had great flavor. I ordered the onion rings which a nice big rings of onion tasted great. The waiter thought our first ordered of onion ring were a little burnt so he gave us another basket of onion rings. Great service. Will be back!

If you love live bands, give Brasky's a try. They have live music every Saturday, and each week the music style changes, so could be Blue Grass one week, 60's the next etc. Service is very good, and the Chicken Wings are great.
