Looking for a place to eat in Alton, we went to the Ragin' Cajun on a Sunday. It was pretty quiet, but looks like the place might really hop on Fridays and Saturdays. The selection of beers was extensive, and the menu reasonably broad. The service was friendly, and the food quite good. Prices were reasonable. Overall a very good... More

A twist on the classic 'dueling piano bar', the twist being roughnecks and lads crowd the bar and make the place feel more like high school musical on methamphetamine.

Tried a dozen different appetizers, entrees, and deserts. They were all good. We made these choices with the assistance of Natalie. Great service and advice; make sure to ask for her if she is available. The dueling pianos were a plus.

We went to this restaurant because we had heard good things about it. We had so much fun. There was no piano playing the night we were there, but another table and our table got to laughing and joking and had so much fun. The service was great. The food was the best and a lot of it. We will... More

I have been wanting to try this place for a couple of years now, but our first opportunity came this past Saturday. We were in town to do some geocaching and to take in some of the rich history of Alton. We came to Ragin Cajun at an off-time between lunch and dinner, so we didn't get to catch any... More

This is a very lively and fun piano bar on Friday and Saturday nights. I have spent a lot of time in New Orleans, and the Ragin Cajun really does capture the feel of Bourbon Street. The food is AMAZING! The pub steak is my personal favorite, always perfect. Finally, they have a potato choice, too!! The lobster bisque is... More

The last 2 times we have been here it has been terrible. The orders came out wrong. We ordered alagator bites and we recieved clams. My steak was so dry I could not chew it. I dont plan on going back for dinner for a long long time.

I love this place. I go here often with friends for dinner and late night drinks. I never would've thought a piano bar would be a hit with a bunch of 25 year olds but it's actually a really fun place. Good food, cold beer and great music with a decent price.
