Hit or miss....

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.

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

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

We ate there after a wedding. We sat outside with a large group of 17 people and had appetizers and drinks. You would have thought we were the only people there. We were so well taken care of . We then moved inside for dinner and the service and great food continued.

Atmosphere is excellent, prices are a real bargain for a top notch Chef. View of the river is not that great

My husband and I had dinner here mid-week while visiting Alton. The food was beautiful in appearance and taste. The view of the river was beautiful. The site of the restaurant is historical as is most of Alton. It was the site of the Madison Hotel, known for fine dining at the turn of the 20th century. Our waitress was... More
