“Early Bird at the Chesapeake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We had a very nice meal for $9 each at 5:30 (early bird in 4-6). Service was only fair (they were very busy). I would recommend a reservation to get a good table. But the food was very plentiful and tasty.

“Everything Lincoln & Good Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Our expectations for finding good seafood in the Land of Lincoln were not high...but we were pleasantly surprised! Recommended by the night manager at our hotel, we approached the restaurant cautiously. However, we found a delicious seafood dinner at a quaint little seafood house with a 1960's atmosphere/decor. An attentive waitress, a hot meal, with fish prepared very nicely...at bargin prices! Definitey worth a stop if traveling to see Lincoln's history.

“So-So”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

While they can put a decent spread on the table at lunch, stay away Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. They herd people through this place like cattle and you will never be anything more than a $ sign.

“My Favorite Place in Springfield.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Love the nostalgic "Supper Club" atmosphere of the "the Peake" as the locals call it.
Great service and the best seafood in town. Especially the fried shrimp and Lobster. Always fresh , and the light batter on the shrimp doesn't overwhelm the flavor. You're really eating shrimp and you know it.
Would highly recommend .!

“Awesome food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

We had dinner on Friday night. The food was excellent and the staff was very professional. I ordered the orange roughy and it was cooked to perfection . My husband had a filet and it was so tender you could cut it with a fork. We will definitely go back!!!
