Went here with a group. Thought it would be very packed according to everyone already who had been. Got right in line, maybe waited about 10-15 minutes. An iconic place to see in Alton. Served free popcorn while waiting. Loved the decor and atmosphere of this place. I got the pork on a stick. Very... read more

A fun, kid free place to eat some great cheap bar food while enjoying the "coldest beer in town" with friends!

Bartenders are great and attentive. The food is cheap bar food. The free popcorn goes great with the cold beer. Some of the free bands are better than other. Took family from out of town. They had a good time.

We had heard of this place and decided to venture over on our way to St Louis. It was about 230 on a Friday and the place was packed. We got thru the lone to order rather quickly and waited and bout 15 mins for our order. We all had burgers and fries and some had shrimp. Food was good.... More

My daughter and some of her friends came up from Tennessee to go to Fast Eddies like they have done for years. Typically everything is great, but this time their experience was absolutely terrible. It started with one of the people in the party buying a $5 drink. He paid with a $20 but only received $4 in change. When... More

Great value no frills restaurant. Food is good quality for a very small menu (burgers, chicken or pork strips and fries), and amazingly cheap. The beer isn't overpriced either, and there is always live music there. Fun, noisy and great value,

We kept hearing about this place. We finally had the chance to go. It would be great with a gang of people who just want to have a couple of cold beers and a bit of food. We tried several items which are inexpensive (you get what you pay for). Burger-ok, pork on a stick-way too salty and dry, brat-ok... More

The food is always top not have bar type foods. The burgers you can't beat for a buck. The fries are hot and delicious and the red hot dog is crisp and juicy. However. Service is often... I don't know. Typical bar waitresses. They're just there to sling drinks. Which are overpriced BTW. Environment is often wayyyy too loud. Music... More

Had the Big Elwood. Good. Beef with green peppers grilled. Seasoning was a bit uneven, but tasted okay. This is a place where you want cold American beer with the limited grill menu. Wait staff didn't know if they had free Wi-Fi. Knowing when you order is ready could be problematic for some due the loud music. Nice outside area.

fast Eddies is a great place to go any day or night. The neatest thing about this place is people of all ages come, from college kids to Golden Oldies. They have good food, very reasonably prices, music on weekends, free popcorn, and a great patio. If your in Alton this is a must stop. People from all over the... More
