Welcome to Tony’s Restaurant
For over 60 years, lovers of fine food and spirits have traveled near and far to a charming river town called Alton to dine at the world renowned Tony’s Restaurant. Tony’s has been owned and operated by the Tony and Edie Ventimiglia Family since 1954.
Voted the Best Steak, Best Happy Hour, Best Atmosphere and Best Outdoor Dining by the people of Madison County
Great service and atmosphere aren’t the only reasons people have been making the trip to Tony’s for over 60 years. Tony’s is the home of the World Famous Pepperloin Steak. This beef tenderloin is marinated in Tony’s secret marinade, rolled in half cracked black pepper, grilled to perfection, and drizzled with garlic butter. After one bite of this mouth watering steak, you will never want steak from another restaurant again. It is so tender it can be cut with a butter knife, and it practically melts on your palette. Tony’s also sells these unbelievable steaks marinated, peppered, and ready for your grill at home. If steaks are not for you, Tony’s offers 20 different home made specialty pastas, along with a delicious selection of seafood and chicken dishes. With a wine list of 60 wines by the bottle and 30 by the glass selections, even the most discriminating wine aficionado will be in heaven. For an after dinner drink one must try the Italian Delight, Tony’s version of the ice cream drink the Brandy Alexander. After re-opening from the flood of ’93, Tony’s added The Third St. Cafe, a 75 seat bar with a charming sidewalk cafe. It is a favorite place in town for meeting friends for drinks, waiting for a table in the dining room, or bringing the family in for a casual dinner. Tony’s bar and sidewalk cafe serves pizza, sandwiches, salads, appetizers, and kabobs in a family atmosphere. Tony’s is sure to have something to please everyone, and we do our best to accommodate any special requests you may have.
