Just up a small alley off of Main St. a couple of blocks from the Baseball Hall of Fame a very nice restaurant with an interesting menu. Will the food knock you off your feet, not quite, is it well prepared and generally excellent, yes. I have eaten there the last 2 nights and both meals were quite good. One... More

Usually you need reservations for this wonderful restaurant be luckily they were able to seat us. We had a light dinner, which was excellent. Price was reasonable. Service a bit slow.

While the food is pretty good in this restaurant the meal experience is greatly diminished by the long waits for service once you are seated. It took over 15 minutes just to get 2 glasses of water, then more waiting for bread and butter. Over a half an hour after we ordered it our appetizer arrived, then another long wait... More

Very small informal restaurant. The food and service were great. I had the Tika ribs and curried cauliflower. Outstanding and just enough spice to satisfy my love of savory. Be sure to book a reservation and be prepared to wait. We were tired from our driver and famished so it was a bit tough to find out that not only... More

During our week at Dreams Park we had plenty of time for ballpark food and pizza with the boys. If you need some truly good dining, this is the place. Healthy, fresh, local ingredients made by an insightful chef. Not too fussy, just unusual and good. It's a bit hidden down and alleyway off main st but easy to find.... More

Two of us arrived with a reservation at 7:30 on a Wednesday. About half the tables were occupied when we arrived, all were by 8:00, and all when we left at 9:30. Many parties that arrived w/o reservations were turned away. Though we were seated right away and given menus, it was some time before a server arrived to offer... More

Our (Glimmerglass performer) granddaughter took us here for dinner a week ago....the fish tacos and Asian salmon dish were like-your-fingers good (we shared half of each so I could taste both). Food great, service fine. Roomy table. OK -- you can't see the lake from here but we did that beforehand.

We stopped by Alex and Ika's last week for lunch and were very pleased. We chose it because of the nice reviews. It was tucked off of main street, but clearly visible to passerbys. We were seated promptly. Service was very friendly and they were so quick with everything! The portions were very generous. I loved my sandwich (the grilled... More

Well recommended by Tripadvisor we enjoyed this low=keyed place right off the main drag. In decor it is like a cefe but the food is surprisingly good and the service prompt and friendly. The recommended fish and chips was as good as I've had, and the chips bother here and with the steak were really outstanding. Wine is well priced... More

In town for the Baseball Hall of Fame and checked online reviews. Alex & Ika delivered on every positive review we read. Only warning is that the service mid-afternoon with only one other occupied table was very, very, very slow, despite ample available employees. Food was some of the most flavorful combinations we've ever had. We sampled Jalapeno Corn soup,... More
