This place is funky, eclectic and mainstream all at the same time. Food off the charts good with an ever changing menu. Plenty of micro brews to choose from. And service like it should be. Get the gumbo or pizza!

You will not be disappointed with fresh menu and fresh ingredients. Great parking across the street right by the river. There isn't a river view while at the restaurant but just cross the street for a very nice stroll. They even have live music on weekends. We visit every time we are in Peoria! Don't miss their fresh baked goods.... More

Four of us had lunch last Saturday after attending the river front market. The place is funky, the food was very good, and services was good. We had both vegetarians and carnivores - both camps had good choices. My only complaint was that the music was a little loud and that made conversation difficult. That would not stop me from...

Cozy atmosphere, reminds me of the 70's era, small, quant, good music, and food was great, med. priced, parking seemed ok, but could have been closer for the winter months

My kids had to attend concerts here for homework assignments. We had a great time. The coffee was fabulous! The food was ok and a little pricey. The place was clean and the servers were excellent.

We love the Rhythm Kitchen. It is one of our favorite date night places in town. We love to have a leisurely dinner with a few drinks then stay to listen to one of our favorite bands. The staff is laid back and fun. There is a bit of a bohemian feel to the place. The food is varied offering... More

Excellent chicken and sausage gumbo in a generous portion served in a low key place that started the waterfront revival. Shelley Lenzini and Chef Jason put our great food in a narrow, display kitchen restaurant nestled in the first floor of a restored warehouse district building. The decor is low key and welcoming, there is ample parking nearby and you... More
