Once again, the Palmetto Dunes favorite place to dine. The sea bass and grouper were the best ever and service top of the line. We have been coming here for years and never disappointing.

I had my first date here Saturday night, and it will be a night to remember! Not only was the ambiance and service incredible, but it was the best food I've had all summer! Wonderful and creative flavors mixed with comforts from home! Could not have asked for a better evening thanks to Alexanders servers and kitchen! My compliments to... More

Alexander's never disappoints. From the bread to the seafood and desserts it cannot be beat. Not cheap but a great dining experience in a beautiful setting in Palmetto Dunes. Ask for a table with a water view.

Fantastic meal at a fantastic place. I had the lobster trio (lobster, scallops, and shrimp), with kale and asparagus. It was cooked perfectly and was delicious. Especially the lobster and kale, those were fantastic. The ambiance was great, I loved the fact that it was like a retrofitted old-fashioned house. We walked in without reservation and found a table promptly... More

One of my favorites! The food is consistently great & the atmosphere is wonderful. Had the stuffed shrimp, very good & my dining partner had the shrimp and grits. This is a little thing but my Chard was exactly the right temp, not too cold like so many places. Fried green tomatoes were also excellent!

Rain drove us indoors for dinner on vacation so we tried Alexander's early diner menu and it was terrific. It was a nice treat actually to eat indoors with a tablecloth in an upscale setting overlooking the lagoon after dining outdoors everywhere on Hilton Head all week. There is a wide variety of choices for the early diners. I tried... More

I recently stumbled across this establishment and it was the best decision I ever made. I am in my second trimester and have not been able to enjoy a meal in months. My husband and I needed a nice night out and we are so happy we decided on this place. The host and wait staff were so nice and... More

Alexanders always has excellent food. This nite was 8pm reservation so not to crowded but they placed 5 of us at a table that was stuck in the corner and very tight to sit in. Not sure why it was not that busy at that hour. We felt likes sardines. Service was okay had to ask for rolls and water... More

Wow, what a disappointment! We saved Alexander's for the last meal of our family vacation. We had heard good things and read many excellent reviews. Unfortunately this was not our experience. We opted for the "early bird special", what a mistake! Upon arrival we were promptly greeted by a friendly host staff and taken to our table with a lovely... More
