“Wonderful food in quaint atmosphere”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Went here to celebrate my husbands 35th birthday. We both had great meals. I had a scallop dish on special, which was phenomenal! My husbands steak was very good. Great service, and we loved the atmosphere. Would highly recommend!

“Great lunch”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Had lunch here last week- the black and blue burger was great as always. Can't go wrong with the Brittany salad dressing- and the salads are great. Nice quiet atmosphere

“Peoria Heights' Best Bistro”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Jim's Bistro has great food - the steaks are the very best in the area. Try the steak salad, as well. A small, friendly place right in the heart of downtown Peoria Heights. The owner Jim Comfort is usually on hand to stop by your table and say hello. Love the Bistro!

“The best”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

The Beef n Blue is the best! The blue cheese sauce is so good. We always laugh that it could be licked off the plate.

“What's the appeal?”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

My date and I went to Jim's a couple months ago. Friends had recommended it, not sure why. It was VERY disappointing. The restaurant is very small, but nicely decorated. The waiter acted like we were an imposition. The menu is not extensive, but we were shocked at the prices-very high. We ordered the prime rib, which was a special that evening. At $39.95 for the entree, we expected expected more than we received. The beef was the toughest prime rib I have ever had. We chose baked potatoes for a side, they were actually burned!
I do not recommend this restaurant. It is over-priced, the food is sub-par, the service was inferior.
