My husband and I don't get out without the kids very often but when we do we make it a night. We were seated right away and our server was there to get our drinks promptly. Our server made great suggestions on the menu. My husband ordered a pasta dish while I had a steak. The food was great both... More

ALthough they were out of the ribs, we had a good dinner. The portion sizes were good as well. The service was also good.

We like the atmosphere. The service and food are great. Our only objection is the tip of 18% is included if there are 6 or more people at the table. I prefer to tip according to individual service.

Places to get a nice steak in Mattoon are few and far between. With Cody's closing, Alamo has become Mattoon's go-to place for steaks. They have a good selection of other food as well. Just be sure to enunciate when you say how you want your steak done. I've witnessed multiple occasions when medium-rare and medium-well have been mixed up.

We had an early dinner at the Alamo. Which seems out of place for Central IL but that is an story. The service was great. The food was ok. We had an app plus dinner...a little bland for my taste or maybe it was frozen and then heated up. It looks like they get a good crowd, small and large... More

The Alamo has been a favorite for many years. The staff are all friendly and helpful. They are attentive as well as remembering of regular customers. The food is consistently good. Alex, the manager, has become a good friend over the years and does a great job overseeing the bar and restaurant. A good place to go while in this... More

I find that for the price, you get a way better quality of food, service, and atmosphere at the Alamo. Mainly the quality of food though and that's the important thing! I recommend their martinis, steaks, salad, and desserts!
