Farm-to-table | Peoria/East Peoria, Central Illinois

The brainchild of Tom Mathers and his wife Kristin, Harvest Supper Club and Vintage Lounge is Peoria’s best fine dining and casual full-scale restaurant, located just northwest of the heights in Junction City. As a way to honor the original Harvest Cafe in Delavan, Illinois, Mathers wanted to bring the farm-to-table, made-from-scratch kitchen and great dining room service into Peoria’s city limits, along with a casual, convivial bar scene for friends to congregate. We are up and running and willing to accommodate your requests to celebrate special occasions, host family gatherings or meet for a quick beer after work. We accept reservations but feel free to come by as we can almost certainly accommodate you. We know you’ll enjoy Harvest Supper Club and Vintage lounge as much as we do. We look forward to your visit. Cheers.More
