Peoria >Lakeside Bar & Grill
So much fun. Will be back! Best fajitas i've ever had!
Love the new MENU!!!. This place is so cool! My kids love coming here (probably cuz they have a real plane hanging from the ceiling). My kids love to fly, strange i know. Nonetheless, I had the chicken club on a toasted herb bread and you can tell they use all fresh ingredients. I found out it is family owned and operated. I think they're doing a great job, it's packed everytime i go there. I'd rather frequent an independent restaurant than a Chili's. It's like they're more eager to keep me happy and coming back for more!
Absolutely Awfulllllll!!!!!!. I took my two children to this place after visiting an old friend in the area. We were starving. I orderd an appetizer which arrived after our meals, had it sent back, what was the point? I was told the computers backed up, right.....I ordered the noodles with marinara for one child and the chicken strips for the other. I myself, ordered the pecan crusted trout which was a highlighted favorite on the menu. I was really looking forward to it. Took my first bite and just about died. It tatsted like batteries!!!!!!!! The fish was way too thin and still had the skin on it, which could explain the battery taste, absolutely gross. I returned the dish and thank god was not charged for it. The noodles were not so great either, hardly any sauce which tasted like it came out of a jar. The fries were cold in the chicken strip dinner. I will never return this place again. So not worth it. The girl that works the front door was rude as well, no greetings or anything when we walked in. Just an all around bad place.
AVOID this place.
AVOID this place at all costs. I've never been treated so disrespectful in my entire life.
Came here last night with 3 friends after having dinner at Squid Ink since it's the only bar in the area. Ordered a beer and was promptly told that in order to get a drink I would need to surrender my keys. Ok... I told them and I gave them my keys even though I didn't even bring my car here. My friends and I ordered shots, then went on the dance floor and goofed around having a good time. When I went to order another drink I was told by the waitress that I was "too drunk." "Excuse me?" I asked her, "I've had 2 drinks!" When I asked for my keys back she just flatly told me, "No." I went to find a manager and a burly doorman asked me what was my "problem." I told him my problem was I was being refused service and I just wanted to get my keys and get out of this crappy bar. He told me I would get my keys as soon as a cab got here. I told him a cab was on the way, and that never in my life had I been treated like a common criminal for doing nothing wrong! I told him obviously you people don't want my business and I won't ever return. That's when the doorman told me, "That's fine, f*gs like you aren't welcome here." That's when I completely lost it. After the cab arrived I asked for my keys back. I was told, "you're just planning on taking the cab to your car." I told him my car was at home and I needed my keys to get into my house! He finally thew the keys at me and I got the heck out of there.
I have no idea where the people come off treating someone like that. I did nothing wrong and was called a hateful word and was treated like a common criminal. And my tab came to around $25 for 3 beers. Definitely avoid this place.
Kuddos to Lakeside for trying to keep our streets safe!
Nice place &great service. We had a business meeting on a Friday afternoon.The server Heide was great,on top of our drinks and very helpful.Not one mistake,and considering we has 14 people that was great.All of our orders were correct,the fish fry was a let down.Slaw was OLD-yuck.But everything else was pretty good.Stick to the burgers and ask for Heide.Very basic bar food but not busy in the afternoon so good place to have a small business meeting.
