The experience held up to the reviews. Creative preparation of local ingredients. Friendly, professional service. Nice wine list. Don't miss the crab cake.

Having read multiple laudatory reviews, our group was eagerly anticipating a great dining experience, but were disappointed. Service was slow and no bread was presented, until specifically requested, as we waited over 1 1/2 hours for our meals. The salads with a house vinaigrette dressing was okay but nothing unusual. The scallops were good but not great. The rack of... More

My husband and I love Alexanders. It is always on point. From the minute you walk in the door to the minute you hate to leave. Food is always right up there with the best and also the servers are amazing. Would recommend anyone wanting to bring out of town guest to Alexanders. They will be impressed without a doubt.

Until the other night, I did not realize that Alexander's Restaurant had been a Roanoke institution for over 40 years. In fact, I had never even heard of it. Thanks to TripAdvisor, which ranks Alexander's in the Top 10 among Roanoke restaurants, I found my new favorite downtown dining establishment. It should go without saying that a restaurant of this...

I ate early and staff very pleasant and accommodating. I had a selection of appetizers- cheese plate, scallop with potato panzanella, crabcake with lemon cream. Everything was delicious and perfectly cooked. The menu notes they can do vegetarian options but it is not really set up that way- lots of seafood options- I don't normally take pics of my food...
