Best option in Mt. Vernon

We had dinner both nights we were in Mt. Vernon ... after all it is the best restaurant in town. Prices are reasonable, service friendly, food was good. Salad and salmon specials we had both evenings were good, steak was good although we had to send back to cook a little longer, and pasta is... read more

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. The food and server were top notch. After lunch the server asked us if we would like have a free cookies. Glad that we said yes, it was a very good warm chocolate cookie.

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

The Alcove is located in the heart of downtown Mt. Vernon, Ohio. The dining experience was elegant, intimate and enjoyable. The service was excellent and the food was delicious, well presented and reasonably priced for such a fine establishment. The walls were covered with murals depicting historic scenes of the city. The adjacent lounge was quaint and a great place... 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
