“Best Salad Bar in Town”

True, the salad bar offers fresh Salad, Vegetables, Fruits and House Made Dressings. But who goes to a steakhouse for salad ? I prefer the cook your own steak on the grill as that is half the fun of eating steak. They also offer Teriyaki Chicken breasts, Atlantic Salmon, Swordfish, Pork Chops... read more

For a group from two to twenty Alexander's is a great restaurant. Their known for two things above all else, one delicious steaks that you can cook yourself over huge charcoal grilles (they will cook them for you if you wish, but it's fun to stand their with your friends and a beer and cook together) and two a very...

A great fun place to visit. Primarily a steak restaurant. You can either pick a steak from the menu and have a chef else cook it or you can go to the many fridges, select you own steak and cook it yourself on the open fire. We did the latter, or should I say my son was our chef. Huge... More

We were seated right away. We had 18 in our party and our wait staff made recommendations on some favorites. You can grill your own or have some cook your meat. Oustanding filet cooked to perfection . I would highly recommend this place.

Alexander's has the best salad bar in the area. It's always been full and clean when we've visited. We love the option to grill our own food; it's part of what makes our group visits enjoyable. The cost per meal is slightly pricey, but the steaks and chicken are worth it. Grilling a few slices of Texas Toast is not... More

My husband and I visited Granite City last night. We had an absolutely delicious meal; it couldn't have been better. I had the Cuban sandwich; it's definitely the best in the area. My husband had the pepperoni flatbread which he said was done to perfection. We both had food to take home which was great for lunch the next day.... More

They have awesome steaks and a wonderful salad bar. They give you the option of cooking your own steak or they will fix it for you. Great time out with friends for any special occasion or just for a nice night out.

Alexander's is a must stop shop in Peoria. It's a little off the beaten path down on the river, but it is well worth it. It is my favorite salad bar anywhere. Come as you want, some are in from boating, while others are in anything from shorts to sport coats or jeans. Very unpretentious. Just come hungry. Be prepared... More

Alexander's is known as the place where you can cook your own steak. I guess that appeals to some folk but I'd just as soon have someone cook my steak that has more expertise about it than I do. So that's what we did. After ordering, we were invited to visit their salad bar - it is an excellent one... More

I went for the salad bar, which was good and not as great as I expected. Ruby Tuesday's is similar. I ordered a 1/2 lb burger with cheese. They would only cook it medium or warmer. I wouldn't expect that at a steak place. The cheese was a slice of American, the tomato looked like a hot house tomato. (it's... More
