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

What a wonderful surprise and delight. The food and service were absolutely terrific. The soup special was fabulous. Every entrée we ordered had great flavor. And, I loved that they filled the glass of wine to the brim. I haven't experienced that in a long time!!! The interior may not be "current," but I loved that as it gave it... More

Old-fashioned style restaurant with excellent service. We all enjoyed our meals – the gulf shrimp and salmon dishes were wonderful. This is really a great place to eat when visiting Kenyon College or stopping in the Mount Vernon area.

Great restaurant with historical ambiance. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. Unique offerings (asparagus and crab soup) were present on the menu along with traditional fare (fish and chips, chicken tenders). I ate there with a group of 7, and we all were thoroughly impressed, both with the food and the atmosphere. The Alcove is definitely worth your time... More

Quite a surprise to find Fine dining in downtown Mt Vernon. Casual but very good food and service. My wife and I both had fish dinners - Salmon and Walleye. The salmon my wife had was on a base of wild rice, feta, spinach & balsamic vinegar...very tasty. My first taste of walleye was very good but my southern roots... More

We have enjoyed three excellent meals at this establishment in the last month -- lunch, dinner and a late night snack in the bar. Not only were each of the meals hot and delicious, but served in a very efficient manner. As we entered the bar just ten minutes before the kitchen was scheduled to close, the bartender ran to...

We stumbled on this restaurant a few years ago and now we plan on a stop if we're headed in the direction. Alcove is a local restaurant, connected with a playhouse, that has been around for years. The dining room has terrific local scenes painted on the wall, outlining the history of the area. The spaciousness and brightness of the... More
