“The Cellar, Geneseo”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Worth the drive from the Quad Cities. Known for their marinated grilled shrimp on skewers. Like their catfish. Bowl of very fresh salad leaves. Waitstaff and manager always personable. Quick service. Nice atmosphere with artists' paintings (available for sale) along the walls. The town is quaint if you want to do some shopping.

“That's what I'm talkin' about!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Nothing but good eating and great service!!
We all had steaks of various cuts. Every one was cut-with-a-fork tender and such generous portions I could barely eat it all. Where do you get cinnamon rolls with your dinner? Here. When was the last time you got a bread basket with crackers AND cheese? When was the last time you had an assortment of homemade salad dressings brought to your table along with a crisp fresh salad served family style? I can't wait to return!

“If you want a wonderful evening out...”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We love to relax here at The Cellar in Geneseo, Illinois. We know ahead of time, that the meal is going to be wonderful. It always is nice to see the wait staff here. They always make you feel right at home. Everyone takes great care of your every needs. The food is wonderful. They take great lengths at preparing everything perfect. We love the menu here. The Green Goddess Salad Dressing is our favorite. The Steaks and the Salmon dishes are all great. The wine list is excellent. Make sure your leave room for dessert!
