Sky Harbor, Peoria

A couple of Saturdays ago we had an opportunity to visit an old favorite, Sky Harbor, just off Farmington Road by the Bradley Park lower entrance. A classic steakhouse, complete with bar in the middle of the room and corner band playing, Sky Harbor hasn't really changed since moving into this location some number of years ago.

The wife and I were graciously relieved of baby duty (heehee) for the evening and took in a movie before meeting our friends Russ and Jen at the restaurant. We looked forward to having some adult conversation amidst yummy steaks.

That little band in the corner, however, kept things up just loud enough that I was, for the most part, rendered useless in any chitchat. I caught bits and parts of what was being talked about, but ended up staring around the room. Too bad.

The food-the most important part-was pretty decent. I had a large ribeye, which was cooked to my specifications, but was a bit simple on the seasoning side. Russ enjoyed his steak sandwich, the wife liked her tenderloin, and for the life of me, I cannot remember what Jen had. Potato skins! And something else, but damn, I can't remember.

Sky Harbor is a fine place to visit for an evening, but ask for a table away, far, far away, from the band.
