We are in Hilton Head on vacation and enjoy trying new (to us) restaurants. Alexander's was on our list after having a great lunch at their sister restaurant, Red Fish. My husband had the mahi fish and I had the crab cakes for dinner tonight. Both were excellent! Fresh seafood is a wonderful treat. I also had a huge mound... More

Such a great dinner. The shrimp and grits were perfect...I loved their take on it, which was fried grit cakes instead of a big mound of grits. The grilled wreck fish was a new fish for us, but the whole plate was great. And the tempura fried lobster...you could think battering and frying good lobster is a waste, but these... More

We recently had a very pleasant midweek dinner with friends at Alexander's, an island institution. We were there during HHI Restaurant Week, so the place was packed. Service was friendly and efficient. The specialty is seafood, and there is a nice range of appetizers, entrees and desserts available. We all opted for choices from the three course special menu (@... More

It was Restaurant week - sponsored by the Hilton head chamber of commerce with over 30 restaurants to choose from - and we chose Alexander's. We made a reservation, and were seated immediately. The place was busy, and we were seated at a two top next to a large party of eight. Our waitress-unnamed-greeted us and took our wine order,... More

We ate at Alexander's for dinner. Our two main dishes were their Shrimp and Grits and their grilled Wreckfish. Both dishes were excellent and cooked exactly right. They arrived hot and tasty. We started with a shared crab cake appetizer that was also prepared well. The wine list was extensive and affordable. It was an enjoyable dinner. We will go... More

We stopped in here just after they closed looking for late night coffee and 3 of the servers were still there and graciously offered to fire up the espresso machine and make us some much needed cappuccino. It's great to have people who go so much above and beyond what is typical in many places. Definitely want to come back... More

I went to Alexander's for another incredible meal and once again I was not let down..

I had the oyster rock and ginger picked the perfect wine then I had the nightly special which was a seafood trio it was... More
