Fun Times Even During The Day

I met a group of about 25 for a fun afternoon. I had not been to Fast Eddie's for over twenty years and was happy to return. The outside area is so nice and very few people were smoking. The menu is very limited, but also very good and inexpensive. People of all ages hang our at Eddie's, so... read more

Not much into going to bars but the food was worth going, and cheap. Will go back next time I'm around.

After living in the St. Louis area for over 20 years I made the trip to Alton to see what all the hype was about. The restaurant/bar itself is dark and the patio is nice, but I expected more. The food was cheap and tasted fine, but nothing to write home about. My beer was not the coldest I have... More

Food was good but will not return because uncooked and cooked food were handled with bare hands plus more than one handled the order number announcement microphone.

This is not a place to go for a quiet meal, although I have been for a mid week lunch and found it fairly quiet. The food is good and cheap. Love the peel and eat shrimp; great burgers and fries. You do have to buy drinks, but I think it's only a one drink minimum.

It's loud and it's crowded. You'll see people from all walks of life and all ages (over 21 of course). Live bands, cold drinks, and cheap (but VERY good) food. Everyone needs to experience a night at Fast Eddie's at least once!

Cold beer, cheap delicious food, gorgeous smoking patio, live entertainment, great service, just about everything you could possibly want from a place. I absolutely love this place, from my hometown, and I absolutely have to go back every time I'm through the area. A must go for anyone!

Absolutely Love this place! We enjoy making our way over to Fast Eddies, as often as possible. We love the cheap food! The place is usually packed on the weekends but the wait to get in is well worth the entertainment that we get to enjoy! The only reason I am giving this place 4 out of 5 stars is... More
