My husband and I enjoy eating here in this relaxed quiet setting. They have excellent dinner rolls and the price is not too high for the quality of food they serve. We've always had wonderful service. I have attended several business luncheons here and it has always been wonderful.

I dined with a friend, early in a Monday evening. The restaurant gradually filled. I ordered fillet of prime rib 5oz. It was a satisfactory portion and the accompany potatoes were well cooked. Asparagus was crisp. I requested a glass of wine at time of ordering my main course and it was never served. The server said, glancing at my... More

I had dinner at Alcove last month on a Thursday. It was busy in the restaurant for a week day but after receiving my meal I understood why. The meal was of the same quality as meals I have paid three times as much for. My guy and I were excited that they served prime rib on Fridays and Saturdays.... More

We visited the Alcove for the first time while visiting our son at college. The first night my wife and I went and there was a total of six tables of customers. The second night our son accompanied us and the restaurant was packed. The interior is dated but the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet. It reminded of dining in... More

Halloween night found the wait staff all in costume. It was also dinner theater night which could explain why our food was so long in arriving? Service? Attentive server. Our waitress readily stepped in to take photos of our family group. But kitchen service was very slow. Food? At our table folks ordered steak, prime rib, salmon, eggplant, and chicken... More

Was in Mt Vernon on business and did not want to eat at a chain restaurant. Hotel recommended the Alcove. We were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was like going back in time 30 years or more. Had excellent service and a really good meal. I had an interesting combo. Fried eggplant, mashed potatoes, green beans with a mushroom cream sauce.... More

A comfortable spot to dine with family and friends, the food is always very good and they take reservations. It's one of the few restaurants that's quiet and offers a variety of meat, seafood and pasta dishes. Consistently good service and quality.

Service is great, lunches are very reasonable and very good. We have also been to the dinner theater, Mt. Vernon has awesome talent, what a wonderful experience so close to home. This is one of my favorite places to eat lunch, only have done the dinner theater so not sure what the cost of the dinners are. Their seafood dishes... More
