We always ate here during the early bird 5 - 6 pm special. There used to be a halibut entree offered at that time, but no more. The early bird selection is limited but the regular menu offers a huge variety of seafood. It used to be good food at a reasonable price, but the prices have been raised, even... More

I have eaten here way too many times to even count and the meals are always excellent. I have been eating here for 30 years and return to it more than any other restaurant in central Illinois.

This is our favorite place to eat for special occasions. We also make it a New Years Eve tradition to eat there. Food is good, Service is good. but the atmosphere is a little dark.

I'm not from Peoria area but visit 3-4 times per year. I've been to several restaurants, all ok. This one is much better! Nice atmosphere, could be good for a date. Huge menu selection. I had mahi mahi with crab cake and mashed potatoes in Housin sauce. It was prepared perfectly! The warm rolls are to die for, as is... More

Consistently tasty, wonderful food. A sure thing when you are hungry for seafood! The prawns and salmon are two favorites. The crisp salads are served on cold plates and the cheesy potatoes are yummy comfort food.
