Blue Duck Barbecue Tavern
212 SW Water Peoria, IL 61602
Built inside the old Peoria train depot - The Blue Duck Barbecue Tavern provides top quality ingredients, scratch-made food, and exceptional service delivered in an inviting, energetic and fun atmosphere.
The name "The Blue Duck Barbecue Tavern" is inspired by the comedy Billy Madison. In a classic scene, Billy colors a duck blue simply because he wanted to see this everyday fowl in a different color. At The Blue Duck, they aim to do the same thing: deliver a familiar and approachable product in exciting and unexpected ways. In this case that product is barbecue. In addition to traditional barbecue plates, they will offer our house-smoked meats in a unique variety of appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, tacos, and rice bowls.
To complement their fare, they feature draft beers from regional microbreweries, dozens of domestic and imported craft beer bottles, high-quality wines, domestic and imported whiskeys served in craft cocktails, and an additional full liquor selection.
