Offbeat and very diverse menu. Interesting Decor. The service is slightly slow, but worth the wait. Prices are slightly higher than you Might expect, but the quality and unique menu are worth it. They usually have live jazz on the weekends. Interesting place to go for a change.

Both were out of this world with flavor. Some of the best food I've ever had. For dessert we had the homemade bread pudding with Carmel... More

A gem on the river in Peoria. Fun artistic environment with a unique menu. The gumbo was amazing! We went with some business partners on a Saturday afternoon so we it was quiet, but that was what we were looking for.

This restaurant has just, plain, great food. Well executed Crayfish Etoufee was our choice on this visit. Others in our party had everything from meat loaf sandwiches to shrimp creole to burgers and salmon blts. All were pleased. Located in a repurposed riverfront building with regularly scheduled live music, this spot retains its commitment to fresh, flavorful, and creative food.... More

Wether for lunch, dinner,or dancing, I am always happy to have chosen Rhythm Kitchen. the atmosphere is relaxed. The wait staff is super friendly. I love the eclectic blend of furniture that reminds me of my mom's kitchen growing up. The food is always freshly prepared and yummy. Check out the bands for drinks and dancing near the Riverfront.

Try the Spicy Mexican Chicken, it has bell peppers, black beans fresh greens, and is very spicey!!!! Or the Jamaican Jerk Chicken! It's to die for! The music on Friday's and Saturday is Eclectric and you should look up the schedule ahead of time. The place is packed in advance!
