Was in Pekin for a business trip and stopped in after trying to find a local place to eat dinner. This is definetly a "local" eatery. Friends greeting friends and very friendly atmosphere. My wife and I sat at a high top in the bar area and the couples near us greeted as if we were locals. Waitress was very... More

I've eaten here a few times. The food is subpar at best. Water is nasty to the point that pop made with it barley covers the dirty taste. Floor is always unsanitary due to popcorn. Waitstaff always acts like they are stressed. Chicken quesadilla was made with soggy chicken...

Stopped in for some chicken tenders and a beer. They was ok, not like I used to remember them, a little too greasy than I remember from before. Limited on draft selection out back.

A great little sports pub to watch all the games. Food is good and the beer is cold. Have great daily specials. Prime Rib on Saturday nights.

We stopped in here on a Saturday at 5:00 for dinner. Soon after we sat down, this pub filled up quickly. Drinks were served quickly. We ordered the hottest wings they prepare which were the habanero wings. The server said are you sure. Yes I am sure because you cannot out hot me. The wings came out and I was... More

We went in to get dinner and watch he game. The service was fast even though the place was pretty full. The prices are descent. You get pretty massive sores/waters and a bowl of complimentary popcorn for the table. I really like how they have dividers/curtains above the backs of the booths so you feel like you have a bit...

I frequent Kouri's often enough. Food is serviceable--the appetizers are pretty great but most of the entrees are nothing to write home about (absolutely recommend the cheeseballs with the homemade ranch and the enchiladas are surprisingly great)--and the draft selection is bog standard. It's really your standard midwestern pub. The firepit patio is nice; sitting by a fire (when it's... More

Stop in for a late dinner after setting up for Marigold fest. We had the cheddar cheese balls, awesome. I had the until son sauge with hot pepper cheese and fries. It was great. My wife had the chicken salad and cottage cheese. It was good but she would have liked the bread toasted. Beer is always cold.
