The savory smells of corned beef and the mysterious sight of green beer will have visitors following a rainbow of senses all around Alton, IL. Are you wondering how to celebrate this St. Patty’s Day? The jig is up!

Raise your Guinness and toast the wearing of the green in the Meeting of the Great Rivers with these five festive options.

1. Morrison’s Irish Pub

With the wooden and brick interior, Irish décor and authentic Irish cuisine, every day feels like St. Patty’s Day at Morrison’s Irish Pub. The taste of Ireland is strong from the bar to the table with imported beer and whiskey, Irish butters and imported fares including bangers, Irish bacon and Guinness chips.

Morrison’s offers traditional specialties every day, featuring Irish Soda Bread, Boxty and of course, Corned Beef & Cabbage.

Whether it’s St. Patrick’s Day or any other day of the week, if you’re looking to celebrate like an Irishman, you’ll strike gold at Morrison’s Irish Pub.

2. Bluff City Grill

What’s better than one St. Patrick’s Day party? Two St. Patrick’s Day parties!

Corned beef and cabbage will be served March 17, 18 and 19 for about $10.

4. Great Rivers Tap and Grill

Great Rivers Tap and Grill will be serving soda bread and corned beef and cabbage on special for St. Patrick’s Day. The mouthwatering Classic Reuben, Simon Kohn’s famous corned beef brisket or pastrami sandwich, is also on the menu and available every day.

5. Johnson’s Corner

Johnson’s Corner may be the home of the famous tenderloin, but people all around Alton, IL know that on St. Patrick’s Day, it’s the home of corned beef & cabbage!

The traditional Irish meal will be served for $10.99. Johnson's corned beef & cabbage is so good, one serving may not be enough! Ask your server for details on how to get more.
