Visiting from out of town, we came for take-out. Food itself was okay, though surprisingly pricey, but decor was oddly dark with windows closed.

Went on a Saturday night in July. Staff was very friendly and efficient. The crab rangoon appetizer was excellent. I had the broiled scallops and my husband the halibut. Both dishes were wonderful. The side of au gratin potatoes is the best I have ever had. The hot and fluffy yeast dinner rolls are to die for. Do not miss... More

Sea food restaurants don't come any better than this one. Great menu, great food, great service, always have had a good experience here. Anyone who likes sea food ... don't miss The Fish House!

We have enjoyed many Sunday evenings lower priced specials but this time we came on a week night. Their house salad is always served cold, as it should be. As usual I tried the tilapia. The regular priced dish is larger but still good and reasonably priced. I'll be going back again very soon to try a new dish.

High prices, small portions, overly buttered and/or sauced dishes. The waitress was charming and the ambience pleasant.

We went to The Fish House for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had heard great things about this restaurant and finally decided to try it for this special occasion. They do not take reservations on weekends but you can call ahead an hour before you arrive which is a plus. When we walked in at 6:00... More

I usually order the same thing every time...broiled seafood patter. It's always good to share entrées with others at the table. The early bird specials are worth going out "early." But why not stay for awhile with friends in the cocktail lounge?

I moved to Peoria from the East Coast where everything is open later. Dinners are later, parties start later, etc. I was thrilled when I found I could go to the Fish House at 9 PM and find the kitchen open. Since I'm usually by myself, I eat in the bar and the bartender has always provided great service. The... More
