Came in for late lunch. Noticed sign said "Lunch Served until 2:30 Dinner starts 4:30". Almost left but decided to go in anyway. Sat down at the bar. Immediately greeted with warm welcomes by bartender and waitress. We mentioned we had come in for lunch ( it was 2:40) Bartender said we can get your order in before the kitchen... More

This place has it's own unique style. If you are looking for a place to have fun with your dinner this is it. It is a little bit louder, that's the places style though. Food was good, drinks weren't over priced staff was friendly. Only thing I didn't get is why the bar stools are so close to the tables.... More

We went to the Alley on Sunday football - mimosa brunch for my daughters birthday lunch. The place was full, all TVs had different games... Which was great since we wanted to watch three different teams. Lunch was delicious, mimosas non- stop- service was excellent and we could not have asked for better. My daughter was in from Rhode Island,... More

The Alley is one of those places where you instantly feel "in your element." The bar is small, with an intimate feel to it. The bartenders are friendly and attentive and knowledgeable. Three flat screen TV's visible from the bar are tuned to sports programming. On week nights it starts getting crowded about 6:00pm with people just getting off work... More

Our party of 8 took full advantage of the "bottemless" Champagne a couple of Sunday's ago. Watching sports, socializing and laughing as our glasses never hit the bottom. Combined servers were always near by to top off our glasses as we enjoyed our afternoon for 3 hours at the Alley. The food was excellent too and I can't wait to... More

The inside of this restaurant comes across as an old world pub. There is tons of dark wood, stained class windows, and tiffany style lamps. The staff here is very friendly. I seemed to have 3 people serving me and they were all wonderful. I ordered the Sand Dabs, coleslaw and broccolitini. I hardly left anything on my plate (and... More

My wife and I had an evening event in near-by Costa Mesa, so made early reservations for the Alley on a Saturday evening. When we arrived we were a little skeptical as we entered the bar and no hostess was present. Soon a very friendly hostess arrived and we were escorted to a nice booth by the window. The menu... More
