Nice little restaurant/bar with good food, friendly staff and cold drinks. Appetizers are some of the best in Alton. Nice outdoor patio with live music frequently. Great place to grab a bite and socialize with friends.

We ate outside and it was very nice. Food was good and the server was very helpful and not rattled by the multiple checks as there were quite a few in our party.
