Lots of seafood to choose from. Menus changes daily. New England chowder is one of the best I have had. I had grouper, light fish good flavor. Always get the key lime pie for dessert.
Attached to Jonah's is an oyster bar on one side and nice bakery, beverages and other items of interest.

A local family own restaurant with excellent seafood. The menu changes on a regular basis with same main staples. Their gumbo and clam chowder is the best, mix it. It is call chumbo.

Helpful staff, great food. Had a variety of appetizers and dinner meals in our group. Everything was great. Great chocolate cake desert.
Go check this out. I will return next summer.

A stone throw from the Paradice Riverboat Casino on the East Peoria, Illinois Riverfront, Jonah's specializes in a variety of sea food offerings to please everyone. A varied menu will give you other offerings if you prefer a great steak, but Jonah's is noted for fine, fresh seafood. It is an upscale restaurant that offers a beautiful dining environment, beautiful views of the Illinois River, and outstanding food. Crowds are heavier on weekends, pricing is reasonable, parking is convenient, and the dress can be as respectfully casual or formal as you want it to be. Dining fare can feature some daily changes depending upon seafood market availability. The staff is friendly, courteous and attentive. The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner dining. I suggest a reservation to guarantee seating, but I have never failed to be seated after a short wait. A seafood specialty shop is attached for you to browse in before or after dining. For a business gathering, a private meeting and dining area is available. For a business lunch out, or a family Birthday outing, Jonah's will meet your needs. Choose from soft drinks, mixed drinks, and a comprehensive wine list for a beverage to accompany your mean. If you are price conscious and limited, be prepared to pay for a quality meal, not a fast food menu and experience. Dine there once, and you will return.
