Liked the varied menu, food quality and service. Not the most inexpensive restaurant, but worth the price.

we started with the deviled eggs and the grilled artichoke. Both were amazing try them. I had the prime rib which was boring a must skip. Sirus had the rib eye it was just ok .

Stopped for lunch and had a wonderful time. I had the cheeseburger and fries - the burger was good but the fries not remarkable. My sister had the 1/2 roast chicken with mashed potatoes that was a very generous and delicious serving. Service was excellent, very nice ambiance. Food is cooked in an open kitchen so you see things being... More

It's just plain good...but the steak I had, with my steak and fries, just seemed so bland and lifeless (at medium rare) that I was really turned off. My girlfriend's swordfish had more life in it...and she was on a diet so it was as plain jane as you could get. Service was good but it was a Saturday night,... More

Always good service and food. Today was no different. Excellent grilled salmon sandwich for lunch. Best chicken tenders and fries... They aren't on the menu any longer but if you ask they will make them. The warm chocolate cake is worth the calories!

Wonderful meal and service. I started with a Wonderful White Wine Sangria. It was beautifully presented and refreshingly delicious. We had Caesar Salads. They were amazing. Our steaks were perfectly seasoned and cooked. Our service was sensational. And if it's possible to top the great meal we had, my goodness....the White Chocolate Cheescake. Just try it!

Wow! Cajun prime rib was absolutely delicious! Great sides too! Service was excellent. Fantastic meal and at a chain restaurant. And I'm usually not a fan of chain restaurants.

I eat at "Alexander's" periodically and have always been impressed with the quality of the food, menu choices and good service. I often take associates there when I plan to have a business discussion. It can get busy during the weekday lunch hour but it is never so noisy that you can't talk at a normal tone. Prices are reasonable... More
