We've been staying in Palmetto Dunes for more than 20 years for our 1 - 2 week annual vacation. Alexander's is super convenient and a family tradition. The setting is lovely and the service was excellent, but the food is a mixed bag. I'm puzzled by the HUGE portions. My smoked salmon special appetizer was fantastic and a reasonable size.... More

This was my second time on Hilton Head Island and at the Shelter Cove Area. The front desk staff at the hotel I stayed at recommended Alexander's and I now know why! The service was great and the food amazing! Our server Joel was excellent, He knew the menu very well, and suggested the Chilean Sea Bass. Alexander's also has... More

We went there for the early bird special. Clearly very ordinary dishes offered for the early bird special. Tables without the specials had actual green lettuce in their salads, unlike the whitish iceberg lettuce in ours. Would not return.

We visit Alexander's every time we travel to HH. It has remained outstanding over the years. Our Early Dining visit last night was, once again, a great experience. The tomato-based Seafood Chowder could not be surpassed. The Seafood Collection entree was perfectly prepared and showcased local catch items. The chocolate mousse dessert was artfully crafted and more than enough for... More

Great location right in the Palmetto Dunes. Owner likes motorcycles as they seem to be part of the decorations. Great martinis - apparently, the bartender is best on the island, or so our waitress stated. They do all local, fresh caught/grown, cooked to order food. Fish was fresh and simply grilled but delicious. Great oysters. Service wonderful.

I have been to Alexander's a few times, and they always have great food and service. The restaurant is not as casual as other restaurants on the island - I definitely wouldn't wear jeans but nicer tank tops seem to be fine. The decor is relaxing and fun, with motorcycles situated throughout the otherwise calm decor. I make a point... More

We were here two years ago and loved it. The early Bird again was sufficient for us. The salmon was very nice and my wife loved the shrimp and grits. Service was outstanding. Compared to other restaurants, this was a fair value.

wait staff not knowledgable about entre ingredients. Asked if scallops are in the seafood platter and the manager who was at the end of the bar said he didn't know and then just gave a 'yes' to be safe and said 'they throw whatever scraps in there and we don't know' instead of going and asking. He was more interested... More
