Ok food, with a decent variety of items. I've tried just about everything, nothing is bad, but some items aren't great. Decent bar atmosphere, its a lot like Cheers. They need to loose the guy bartender though, he's lazy, rude, and it is obvious he doesn't care.

After an all day car trip I swung by Ye Olde Alpha for some carryout while the rest of my family enjoyed the Aquatic Center at the Hampton Inn. The order was ready shortly after I arrived for pickup. I enjoyed the plump shrimp in my Shrimp Linguine and my wife liked her Shrimp Salad. Ye Olde Alpha turned out... More

We met a friend here, based on good reviews. We walked into the bar side, instead of the restaurant and it was reminiscent of an old smelly college bar. We went over to the restaurant which was surprisingly busy for a Sunday night. We stuck to the normal food. My son ordered a large burrito. The refried beans on the... More

Variety of food. Service is great. Complimentary Homemade salsa and chips are really good. A little pricey on some of the meals but worth it. Frequent there often.

My husband and I wanted to try this restaurant cause we had friends that raved about it. We were very disappointed. The food was overpriced and really bad. We did start with the Greek/medium wings and they were good. Then came our fajitas. Just awful. I could tell as soon as they put the food down it wasn't going to... More

Right during rush hour, my husband called from Springhill Suites, for Takeout. The menus our hotel provided, prepared us for our meals: Cobb salad and creme brûlée, half a rack of bourbon ribs, corn pudding, garlic mashed potatoes, and peanut butter pie. Iced tea was bottled. Salad dressing was homemade. The meal was packed professionally and both were delicious, ready... More

A group of 14 women went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. Walking in we thought we should turn around and leave but boy what a treat. The staff was friendly and the food was awesome. We all had great meals and the desserts were fabulous. It is an old restaurant and could use a lot of... More

The lady at the front desk of the hotel recommended this place. There is a lot of variety on their menu. I had the ribs and was pleased at the taste and the tenderness. Slow cooked with my choice of bbq sauce, I tried their bourbon bbq sauce. The waiter was efficient and friendly.

We only went here because the hotel staff recommended. When we walked in the "hostess" was wrapping silverware on the counter. She told us there was a 15 min wait and after we sat down, she brought over a pager. We were taken rather quickly to a booth. The vinyl was coming apart and the place just looked old. It... More
