We've dined at Gentelin's several times and have been generally pleased. A group of us ate there for a family occasion in early May and would give it a good, solid B, but not an A rating.

Very high quality food and service. A bit pricey, but worth it. Nice atmosphere. We go there occasionally for a special treat.

The dinners have always been excellent but portions are not too substantial. I like the atmosphere and prefer the bar seating (more casual feel).

The food was ok-fancilly presented-very little food, especially for the price-I didn't even have left overs.

We do not eat there often enough. My wife loves to get the crab cakes. I got the Tuesday $25 special and chose the pork chop. Tender, flavorful and huge. I love the vegetables under it. I had to leave before my desert was served so it got shared by my wife and friends. They enjoyed. I enjoy the view.... More

The food seems to be hit or miss. The steak I had was....well...bland and tough to say the very least. It had ZERO flavor, and was next to impossible to cut. The side items were excellent, as was the desert.

I was here for our anniversary and had a great time! The food was good though not much I would eat as I'm a simple girl. The atmosphere was great and the service was amazing. Dessert was the best! If you're in Alton, have some great food here!

Spent our Valentine's Day here and loved it. Order the pork chop, you won't be disappointed. Definetly one of the pricest restaurants in the area, but perfect for celebrating a special occasion!

From the moment we arrived, we knew that this would be a tremendously great experience! The décor in both the bar area and restaurant - not to mention the view of the river - was superior. The bartender and the wait staff were outstanding. The presentation and the food was excellent! I had the "special" - one of the best... More
