Everyones friendly and there is always more food than you can eat. The prices are very good. This is one of my... read more

With many visits under our belt, this restaurant caters (and always has) to quality service and food. I cannot tell you how important we value service, and this place has it. If there are any problems, staff will take care of it promptly and with a smile.

I try to get something different every time I eat at Cafe Alley, and every time, whatever I get is... delicious. And it always ends up being the best version of said thing that I've ever had. They nail it every time. I also had my mother's surprise 60th birthday party there and the staff was very accommodating, and exceptionally... More

Busy Saturday night. We didn't call for a reservation. Wait was our own fault. Now we know. At 5:30 PM Sat night, there's a wait without a reservation. He ordered a big pork chop. I, salmon. The waitress didn't ask how we'd like them cooked. Big clue: they weren't going to worry about it. Meat a little well-done. I've ordered... More

We went here twice during our stay...once for just desert and again the next night for dinner and desert. The first night they were out of their signature Ice Cream Sandwich (we showed up 15 minutes before closing)...though Brittany sold it so well only to pull the rug out from under us..we're certain she did it on purpose. We had... More

Great little find in the old part of Ardmore. Food was fantastic. Service was friendly. Place was hopping on a Friday night. We had to sit in a backroom which wasn't quite as cozy as the main dining room but that didn't stop us from enjoying our time.

Great service. Definitely no complaints from anybody in our group on the food. Menu has enough of a variety to appeal to everyone. Just upscale enough to be a great place for a group of friends or family to meet to eat and chat. Nice atmosphere and vibe.

Upscale but relaxed. In an arts building. All items ordered were were excellent and interesting. Clearly superior service. Prices were reasonable for quality. Most dishes $14-18 with steaks in the 30s. Poblano pepper appetizer was a great surprise with a great matching of flavors as was the Santa Fe chicken. Steaks were tender and deliciously awesome. We drove 130 miles... More

Fabulous food. Fabulous service. Cannot go wrong with ANY menu item. Everything is delicious. Go on a Tuesday or Thursday and try a chocolate roll.

It's pricey but you get what you pay for! Everything was homemade, the atmosphere was very cool and even dessert was delicious! Must try the calamari!
