After a late lunch elsewhere, my wife and I were looking for a nice place to have a couple of drinks and conversation with local staff. The cozy (small) bar at Alex & Ika was perfect! All of the bar/kitchen staff, plus the manager, were very friendly and welcoming. It was a Wed afternoon (2/18), so we had the place... More

Patrons should be made aware that there are NO free refills on iced tea. The waitress kept taking our glasses and refilling them only to find out when we received our bill that we had been charged for each refill. ...just not right.

We are very sorry to hear that this happened. It is not our policy to charge for iced tea re-fills and we will make sure this does not happen again. We would very much like to make this up to you. Please give the restaurant a call at 547-4070. More

Very $$$$$ for what i had. Paint peeling off the ceilings, bathroom vents full of dust, dirty floors and no flow to the dining floor. Very cramped and tight. Food was par at best. Better choices out there.

Since my wide and I were staying in The Cooper Inn across the street and since it had been a day of almost continuous snowfall, we decided that anywhere close to our hotel would be our dinner destination for the first night. Alex & Ika restaurant is almost directly across the street from The Cooper Inn, so we headed over... More

We made reservations on a Friday night. When they sat us down, we looked at each other and said REALLY? Tables of two lined up literally one foot from each other. The people next to me were talking and they were like basically touching my elbow so they would've heard every word we said, just as we could hear them... More

Food is OK, and the service sloppy and inattentive(waitress did not tell us there were specials!). Drinks are good, and atmosphere is cozy. The place needs a serious cleaning.

We had lunch here, and I wished we could have returned for dinner. the place is very inviting (although the chairs are a bit rickety), and the menu had many appealing options. The thai chicken wings are divine, as are the sweet potato wedges. Also good - the BAT (bacon, arugula, and tomato) sandwich, and the fingerling potatoes. There were... More

I have been here numerous times. Unfortunately, the last time we went the bread was cool and the soup was warm and not hot. Nonetheless, the appetizer (fingerling potatoes) was outstanding and our main dishes were excellent. They have a good selection of wine by the glass. Our server was friendly and timely.

From the front, Alex & Ika looks like an abandoned diner. That's because the kitchen is in the front, and the owners kept a row of diner stools in the front window (perhaps as a nod to its past?). But around to the left is the entrance, and the start of a wonderful dining experience. The place is small -... More
