We had a gathering of 8 and our waitress was prompt and attentive. My steak was a little overcooked , but had good flavor. The salad bar downstairs is half the size of the main floor one. So if you are seated down stairs, I recommend walking the few extra steps. The atmosphere is always nice. I strongly feel there... More

My husband visits Alexander's every time he is in Peoria and raves about it. My first trip was no disappointment. The steak was cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. The hand cut steak fries were amazing. Even the garlic bread was better than average. Too full for dessert but the table next to us ordered the warm cookie in the... More

We had a nice supper. Our waitress introduced is to a new employee which he later said he was a manager. We had had a nice July steak special. Choice of several different steaks, salad bar, and toast for 39.99 for the two of us. We let them cook it for us for one more dollar each. Amazing salad bar... More

nice selection of meats to grill, wide salad buffet. You can either grill your meat or have it grilled for you; great place to take customers to.

This place is a great place to go for a full midwest experience. The steaks are pricy, mostly because you end up cooking them yourself, but the quality of the steaks is great. I loved the experience and the atmosphere, it is certainly not a five star steakhouse, but you are not going for that. The experience is the time... More

Alexander's Steakhouse is next to the river in Peoria, Illinois, Wayne Rickard, manager. This is a unique and large restaurant. We were a party of 20 and had two young ladies to take care of our needs. The organizer of our group had a set menue for us to chose from, 8 oz. up to 20 oz. of meat. One... More

We were heading back from Chicago and decided to stop by Peoria to let the kids go through the Caterpillar Equipment visitor's center since they love diggers and construction equipment. After leaving, we searched for a restaurant and this was consistently mentioned as a great choice and indeed it was. Driving up to the parking lot left a little to... More

This used to be a great place for steaks. The last couple of times I have been there, the cuts of meat have been terrible and not marinated properly and were tough. The prices are starting to get out of hand also with their craft beers. They want close to $7 for a 12 oz bottle of Founders Scotch Ale... More

I took a group of clients to Alexanders Steakhouse in Peoria, Il recently and it was terrific! I ordered the 11 oz. filet and it was cooked to perfection. One person in my group ordered the swordfish and said it was the best he'd had. For those who haven't been there, Alexanders offers a large grill in the middle of... More

We have been going to Alexander's Steakhouse for years and have never been disappointed. The uniqueness of grilling your own steak makes this steakhouse very different. Their salad bar is always fresh and crisp. I sometimes order just a salad bar, baked potato and Texas toast (which for me can be a full meal). We love their steaks and the... More
