Ate here for four nights as it was part of my room rate at the Alexandra, menu was extensive and all of the dishes I ordered were excellent! Very busy at this time of year, yet the service was still very efficient.. well done!

Food Stop is part of the Alexandra Hotel and serves food efficiently to a number of people in the evening in a town where getting a table to eat can be a challenge if all the B&Bs are full. The food was edible reasonably priced maybe a 3 feels mean but that's what I felt at the time.

The restaurant is very comfortable and pleasant, the staff are really friendly and it's obviously popular and busy in the evening, we booked our table thankfully. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, with a menu to suit a variety of tastes, a bit of everything. I can recommend the fish and the Cullen skink is to die for!

The menu was extensive and covered most tastes. I started with Haggis and Neaps, which was very tasty, my wife had a very large prawn coctail. I decided on Sea Bass as a main, which was two very large fillets in a Lemon/Butter Sauce. My wife chose a Chilli chicken which was complimented with a nice Couscous. The wine list... More

Visited the Food Stop for dinner with friends whilst in Fort William and felt a little bit let down by the overall experience. My Highlander burger was good but all my friends found their food disappointing (steak and ale pie, soup of the day) and the service was just ok without being great.

I had the venison pie with potatoes and veg and my husband had steak pie and chips. My meal was excellent with large chunks of lean meat a light and crispy puff pastry topping. My husband said his pie was very good but the chips were a little 'floury' for his taste. Not expensive at all.
