“Salt overload”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Tourist trap for Marriott conventioneers. Bland food heavily salted. The "sommelier!?!" Will argue with you as to whether your wine is chilled or not!

“Rushed Meal, Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This was a strange dining experience. We made a reservation and when we arrived they seated us (a couple) next to a big dinner party and a crying baby far away from the windows. We asked if we could sit closer to the water. They took us to the room closest to the water, but did not seat us next to the window because those tables "were all spoken for." However, during the entire time we were there those tables sat empty. Anyway, we could still see the water and it was a pretty view. Our meal was so rushed. We ordered and our food came really quickly. Then, we had not even finished our soup when our meals arrived. I dislike it very much when a restaurant does that. So, the food began to get cold while we finished our soup. I ordered the scallops. Unfortunately, I did not feel they were cooked enough, but still ate them and they were OK. The food was arranged attractively on the plate. However, I wish instead of rushing to get us our food they would have properly cooked the food. Our waiter was nice, but odd. He shared a few things with us that a waiter shouldn't really share and said something that was a bit inappropriate. It gave us a laugh for later, but some people might really be offended by it. Dessert was delicous...peanut butter brownie. Overall, it was an OK experience. Food was OK, but a bit pricey. If we are spending over $100 for a meal we expect the meal to be a slower, enjoyable pace. Everything was served quickly but when it came time to get our bill we couldn't seem to find our waiter. I would not recommend, but you may have a better dining experience than us. Maybe it was just an off night for them. I don't think we will return the next time we visit Hilton Head.

“Wonderful Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

With so many choices for finer dining, the decision can be somewhat daunting. I read previous reviews on Trip Advisor and made the decision to choose Alexander's. I was impressed as soon as we walked in. We were warmly greeted and seated right away.Our waiter was spot on when answering our questions and taking care of us. Dinner was excellent and worth every penny. We will definitely be back and have already told people that Alexander's is a must!!

“Absolute home run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Have not been in 10 years. Let me say, most excellent. Three of us went. Had a lovely seat where we could see the water.

Ordered the sea bass, Asian style. On low carb diet so had two helpings of vegetables. The fish was the freshest I have ever had. Buttery texture. Not one lick of fishy smell. The boy had crab cakes. Plenty of lump crab meat and not as much filler.

Waitress most attentive. They make a nice Manhattan! Didn't skimp on the liquor. Price for that kind of meal, service and atmosphere reasonable for HH.

We'll be back!
