“Scoffers BE GONE!!! Great Food, Friends and Atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2007

For the cook your own steak scoffers... stay away, don't write a review and take your comments somewhere else.

Alexanders is a COOK YOUR OWN steak joint, that's the appeal, the attraction and they have a niche. If hanging with the people you like to hang with and enjoying a laid back atmosphere is what you desire, there's no better place than Alexanders. Cooking with your friends and having a good time is why folks go there. Not to mentions the cuts of meat they offer are incredible and the salad bar is one of the best ever! And hey... if you don't like you meal... it's you own fault.

Alexanders is and has been a perennial favorite for us to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries for the last 16 years, even though it takes us an hour to get there.

Infact we'll see you Saturday night for my wifes 40th b-day.

“Cook 'em yourself!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2006

For me, going out to dinner means that I don't have to cook, that is why I don't understand the appeal of cooking your own steak at a restaurant. Here, you have to pay extra for the restaurant to cook your steak for you. Something that people don't consider is that if you overcook it, you can't do anything about it. There is no sending it back to the kitchen - you are the kitchen!

Okay, I will get off of my soap box. Let's discuss the food. The steaks there are always exceptional. Generous cuts are tender and flavorful. The salad bar is a good size with a nice selection of items. Everything has always looked fresh.

Long Island Iced Tea! I'm not sure if they would consider this their specialty drink, however it was very special for me! HA HA.

The decor is nice. It is in an old warehouse looking building with exposed beams and bricks.

This seems to be a place where people save for a special occasion. One night "Happy Biirthday" was sang 8 times in one hour by different groups. This is also a place where foreign business travelers for Caterpillar like to go. They can't get meat like this in Europe. Reservations are a must on weekends.
