6 pm reservations for 7. Submitted our orders within minutes of sitting down: yes, we ordered immediately. Meals finally arrived over an hour later while table of 6 beside us were seated just before us, were served (including dessert), and out the door before our food ever arrived. Similar with other tables too -- being served quickly!! Was the wait... More

We stumbled across this place after spending the afternoon in Mt Vernon. We went for lunch. It was not crowded. The murals on the wall were interesting and our waitress was very informative. Food was very good. A bit slow in coming out. But will likely stop again when in town.

The Alcove and Bruce Jacklin Productions/MTVarts puts on wonderful shows a few times each year. Enjoy a great lunch or dinner, then sit back and enjoy the show. The Gathering Room can hold at least 65+ people comfortably.

We were spending the weekend at the home of friends in Apple Valley and I researched eateries in the area for Saturday night's dinner. This small, understated establishment is found on S Main St, one of the four roads which spin off the town square. It is easily overlooked as it blends with the many storefronts which sit side-by-side. The... More

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
