Can't go wrong here. From their amazing happy hour appetizer specials to the unique drink offerings, Alton's is always a great choice.

Broad menu and always fresh. Love the tuna appetizer! Super fresh and portion is big enough for a meal. One of the best Kale Salads in the area. Fun outside seating when the weather is nice.

I came here for lunch and I thought it was delicious! We ordered the stuffed mushrooms and I could have eaten all of them. I got a chicken salad, and had some steak with mashed potatoes... everything was so tasty. The place is really cozy as well, I would return.

It was Queens Feast (restaurant week) so we took advantage of the 3 courses for $35. Prime rib was fantastic as well as the salmon and filet. The stuffed mushrooms were a 10 and was an enormous portion. Great service!

A group of us went to Alton's for the New Years Eve dinner. It was a four course meal that you could choose from and a glass of champagne. All of the course selections were awesome and the service was impeccable!!! We will definitely go back throughout the year and again for our New Years celebration!

I've eaten here two times for lunch and just found the food to be just OK. I had the lobster roll which was good but not flavorful. I also had the burger, which was good; not great. The prices are high, but the ambience was great.

One of our favorite spots. Really enjoy half price bottles of wine on Sunday and Monday. The ribs are excellent as are the twice baked potatoes. Really enjoy the dip trio and stuffed mushrooms. Many other great items to try.

My family dined for NYE 2016. The food was really good but we felt extremely rushed. The service was standard. Due to the holiday they seemed more focused on getting people in and out than excellent customer service. Our family of 4 ate in less than 60 minutes. Would consider going back just not for a holiday meal. Was really... More

Excellent service and predictably good food. Generous drinks at a moderate price. Appetizers are half price before 6. The duck can be dry. But the lamb shank is always excellent. Good salads too!

Consistently delicious, friendly service and large enough to accommodate both large and small parties, Alton's is always a sure thing. On the weekends, brunch is fabulous. For dinner the lamb shank in a port wine reduction over home-make mashed potatoes is a favorite.
