Superb

Excellent food and service! What a gem in this quaint river town. Awesome bar with extensive Bourbon and Scotch selections. Make sure you ask for Leslie if in the bar area. She's your hostess of choice.

This gem was unexpected but tremendous!! I did not expect such high quality food in Alton. The bar is very nice for meeting friends or colleagues. The dining area is romantic and the food is top notch.

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. The service was pretty good, the food was pretty good, the atmosphere was dismal (groups are seated in a back room with essentially... More

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.
