Great meal. Not sure this could be expected
colocated with a Best Western Premier. Great homemade food. The chef is of Polish descent. We had pierogis and a great order of catfish tacos.

We went for Alton restaurant week last night. The restaurant was very generous with their deal for restaurant week. We thoroughly enjoyed the pierogies, the basin Burger, their delicious wide and thin french fries, the Kentucky cream ale, and the ginger cheesecake with peaches. It's a really pleasant environment there.

I can't recommend this place enough for the fresh food. I don't know why it took me so long to discover it. It's located in the newly remodeled Best Western. A group of girlfriends went for lunch and we ordered a variety of foods. Everyone enjoyed their selections. I had the Pierogies and a wood-fired mushroom pizza. Our waitress was friendly and talkative. I told her that I had pierogies in Poland and that the ones at Great Rivers compared very well. She told me the chef was from Poland and that he took great pains to make everything fresh and in house. She bragged on his skills and rightfully so. She was also excellent at her job and made us feel welcome. We already have our next visit planned!

The Great Rivers Tap is a restaurant tucked away in the newly remodeled Premier Hotel in Alton. When asked to meet some family members there for dinner I admittedly wrinkled my nose and was reluctant. After dining there I was disappointed in myself for prejudging a place before I tried it. The food was great and the service was friendly. The wild mushroom pizza , salad and sandwiches were on point. The atmosphere is super relaxing. It is obvious the owners and staff have a passion for what they do. Don’t pass this one by. It is worthy of your dining dollar and support.
