Nice food but average service.

Food was great but let down by poor service and atmosphere. Very overpriced for what it was. I would have thought that as I was staying at the hotel that I would get some sort of a discount for using their restaurant but no.

Food was great but let down by poor service and atmosphere. Very overpriced for what it was. I would have thought that as I was staying at the hotel that I would get some sort of a discount for using their restaurant but no. Gets booked up very quickly and is far too small for the size of the building.

Stopped in this evening for a main meal at the Food stop.We had the balmoral chicken and the chicken wraps which were really tasty. Place was filling up as we left and staff were very helpful. Worth a visit if you are in Fort William.

Had an excellent meal in the restaurant in The Alex which, I know, from having stayed there before, is a fine hotel. A good varied menu with something for everyone. A bit of a wait but it was worth it.

I run tours for small groups. Fort William's always been problematic for good food stops. No longer. This place has a fairly standard menu, but for me the quality of preparation was very good indeed. My guests, who are well used to having high quality and expensive dinners, were very happy with their meals. Service also was prompt, very friendly,... More

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.
