Great!

Since I heard they could accommodate dinner meetings I just had to try it. I had the Alley Burger and my friend had the beef cabbage rolls. Both were amazing. We ordered the chocolate dessert to go. On my drive back to OKC I opened the dessert and almost ran off the road it was so good. The staff... read more

Always amazing service and food! Filet with the Blue Cheese butter is fabulous! Pair it with their salad and house dressing, sweet potato fries and lots of marshmallow dipping sauce! Drinks- wine or Alley Tea. When they have frozen margaritas and Alley Tea- ask them to mix it!! Desserts are always on point too! It's hard to decide between Peanut... More

We were in Ardmore for a visit and saw the reviews on Trip Advisor. Decided to give it a try. Excellent choice. Ate here twice. Really, really good food with a very nice variety on the menu. Excellent dessert too! Our server was excellent. We felt like we were part of the local scene. They truly made us feel at... More

This is a place to be seen at! It is not for the food . It is average at best. But if you like to spend big bucks for average food this is the place ! Glad it was the company paying for it and not me !

I was in Ardmore for work and ate at Cafe Alley 2 nights in a row. The Southern Favorite burger was delicious with pimento cheese, bacon and a fried green tomato. The crab cakes were also amazing, but the best thing was the dipping sauce for the sweet potato fries. I would definitely eat here again.

Having eaten at several of the local spots over the years and been bored by the average to worse food we thought we would give Cafe Alley a try. Once again trip advisor users are spot on, this couple owned and run restaurant truly deserves a top rating. I would give it six stars if I could. The staff is... More
