This restaurant was the most highly rated one by the front desk staff at our hotel. On a rainy evening, we visited it. On our way in, we passed local young people leaving, dressed in their prom best. We had to wait 15 minutes and watched a nice cross section of the small town walk in. Once we got a... More

This place is old school....the kind of bar that every town needs...the kind of menu that has something everyone can love. THE BEST DESSERTS IN TOWN! I prefer to sit on the "bar"side but others prefer the restaurant side of the business. If you go on Thursday or Friday nights be prepared for a crowd. Holidays are generally s standing... More

45 minute wait to be seated but once we were seated we were served quickly. An older building but quite a popular destination for families.

This place is in a nice neighborhood, and has a good menu and decent service. I really like the Pastime Pasta.

Had dinner here on a "Mexican Monday." Definitely a popular local restaurant as it was crowded when we arrived. Parking is limited and can be an issue. Menu is diverse and there is something for everyone. Had the fajitas; taste and portion size were good, but nothing special. Pricing seemed a little on the high side. Overall the experience wasn't...

We were just looking for a restaurant open for Sunday lunch. My wife wasn't too excited when she saw the exterior, but the entire experience was great. They had a wide ranging menu, and everything we had was not just good, it was delicious! Our service was also polite, friendly, informative, and quick. It was a very good experience, if... More

The Alpha has an extensive menu of great food. The service is superb, and the staff is always ready to help with whatever you need. Try the wings, the Mexican menu on Mondays, the sandwiches and wraps (Like "The Jones" and Kentucky Hot Brown). Always a good selection of domestic and imported beers too. The desserts, especially the Key Lime... More
