Illinois - Blue Duck Barbecue Tavern

Peoria, IL - Former Rock Island Depot Building. We are located at 212 SW Water Street (The River Station) on downtown Peoria’s RiverFront. The Blue Duck will occupy the space that is best known as being the former home of the old Cattlemen’s Clubcar. Steeped in the rich history of Peoria’s transportation past, the building was originally home to the Rock Island Depot and served the Chicago and Rock Island Railroad from its construction in 1899 until the “Peoria Rocket” ran its final passengers in 1978, during which year the building was added to the National Register Historic Places. The building began its transformation into a restaurant destination with the opening of the River Station restaurant a few years later in 1981, which remained a Peoria mainstay until its closing in 2000.

At The Blue Duck, we aim to inject life and enthusiasm into the resurgent RiverFront District with an exciting restaurant destination. The interior of the restaurant features a 13 foot ceiling with exposed metal beams, and dramatic reclaimed barn wood spanning the majority of two interior walls. Large flat panel televisions, a high-end sound system, interesting artwork, and high-end lighting will support our stated goal of providing an inviting, energetic, and fun atmosphere.
