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...

Very pleasant and the most elegant in town. If I was to be celebrating a special occasion in Mount Vernon or have a romantic meal, this is the place!

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

One of our favorite places to have a good meal on a very comfortable setting, take our time and relax. The meals are always good, although the bar staff has limited knowledge of how to make some basic drinks

I live and work in Mount Vernon and my company gives training here for people from all over the world. We host a dinner the first day of class at the Alcove and my students are always impressed. The prime rib is tender and tasty. We have a limited menu for our dinners so I have tried everything just to... More

The Alcove is a fine restaurant. I was in for dinner on a Wednesday night and had the filet mignon with a small caesar salad. Everything was perfectly prepared from fine ingredients. The service was quite good, as was the wine selection. This is a real find in a small town -- and I have to say that Mount Vernon... More

It's been nearly two decades since we ate at this restaurant. For years, it was in shabby condition and served rather standard food. No more! Renovated, remodeled, there's an exciting menu and the best servers ever. We were given lots of attention, answers to all our questions and just the right amount of chatter. There are some charming new wines... More
