Jonah’s Seafood House & 2601 Oyster Bar

Written By: Andrew Kettererjonahs


Jonah’s Seafood House

If you’re craving fresh seafood and you’re in the Peoria Area, Jonah’s Seafood House is the place for you! When veteran restaurateurs Terry and Pattie Waldschmidt opened Jonah’s, they pictured a dining experience unlike those available in the area. Specifically, they wanted to present a menu that featured flavors from Tampa, San Francisco, Boston and New Orleans.

According to their website, the menu is based on “simplicity and consistency, and a commitment to excellence.” Twice each day, Jonah’s prints out menus that offer a variety of fresh fish for guests to pair with cooking styles, sauces, toppings and sides. The fish is flown in and received fresh each day, inspected for quality and then cut and weighed by hand.

To put it simply, the food is incredible!
