From the freshest seafood to prime grilled steaks and chops, Josef's Steakhouse & Oyster Bar is THE destination in Rockford. A hidden jewel at Spring Creek and Perryville, Josef’s is a welcoming and elegant white tablecloth restaurant and bar. Enter through an antique arched doorway with subdued lighting and soft music. Everyone is treated like a regular in our cozy BAR which is a destination in itself. Josef’s BAR is a must-stop for guests for a pre-dinner cocktail or a fun casual meal like our Josef Burger. The bar features granite tables, an oyster bar and the largest selection of wines and spirits in town. Your host is award winning Austrian Chef, Josef Schwaiger. Josef still oversees his thee Barbados restaurants from afar and he's won Caribbean Restaurant of the year on two occasions.
