The Alcove is located in the heart of Mount Vernon right off of the square. It has a decent menu and a quite, relaxes atmosphere. The restaurant can also be used as a function hall upstairs for various sorts of parties, which we used for my grandmothers 80th birthday and it was excellent. The Alcove is worth a visit if...

An old, well established restaurant. The kind of place local businessmen and families go. A lounge with seating to eat and a large dining room. Upstairs is a banquet room that is used for class reunions and dinner theaters. I proposed to my wife there 25 years ago. Go back monthly.

My wife and I stopped by the Alcove recently for a late lunch. It was after the lunch crowd so it was calm & quiet. The staff was friendly as always, and the food good - considering.

I consider The Alcove one of, if not the, best restaurant in Mt. Vernon. The food is consistently good and prices reasonable, the atmosphere quiet and relaxed. The high ceilings of the dining room and the murals of local businesses painted on the walls give a unique flavor to the dining experience. The parking is tricky since the restaurant is... More

I love the Alcove. The Chicken Marsala is probably the one of the best I have ever had in all my travels. I love good food and am never disappointed in the food or the service at The Alcove. I love this place!

What a great place to dine! All food is prepared fresh and served fresh. Our server was exceptional and the food was delicious! The steaks could be cut with a fork and the dessert menu looked so good we couldn't decide on which to order so, at our request, our server surprised us with one. YUM!
