I have visited the Alcove multiple times. The first was great! We tried the lobster bisc, mozzarella mushrooms and their garlic salad with feta fills my belly with joy haha however the majority of their cuts of beef; steak, filet, prime rib, have no flavor!! So bland!!! Not to mention the kitchen takes forever just to get it out the... More

We were planning a trip to the nearby Memorial Theater and so we decided to eat at the Alcove. It is located right on the main street of Mt. Vernon. Mt Vernon is a small city in north central Ohio which is very home to Dan Emmett (Dixie) The interior of the restaurant features many hand painted portraits illustrating the... More

It seems to draw an older crowd, the murals on the walls depict historical buildings and local flair, it was a little dark for my taste on a business trip but would have been a great date restaurant. My business associate had a cajun chicken salad which looked very fresh and good, I had a prime rib sandwich that was... More

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
