“Excellent food but spotty service...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012 via mobile

We always have excellent food when we go but but the service varies each time from being excellent to being very crappy. If no one one comes with a check after a half hour and we have been neglected all night, we leave our name, #, & reason for leaving along with the approximate amount of the meal amd leave, no tip included. We've never received a phone call or been barred.

“Nice quality steaks, old fashioned steak house feeling!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Everyone thing about this place screams, traditional steakhouse. Nice large standard salad bar, red checkered table cloths, nice local servers, good quality steak, cold beer and good baked potatoes! And it works! You have the option to cook the steak yourself or have them do it for you. We always get an order of the marinated mushrooms and they make a good side to the steak and potatoes. One recommendation that we and our others have is to use caution when using the melted butter on the grill. It seems there may be some cross- contamination occurring, people use it to slather on their salmon, steaks, bread and more.

“Best place in Springfield for steak!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Alexander's is an unique restaurant where you can get a good piece of meat, cook it yourself, and have a good time.

If I'm ever in Springfield for a birthday or special family event, I try to go to Alexander's for a fun filled night. They have a great selection of steaks, decent salad bar, and really good side dishes. You can have a lot of fun cooking your own steaks and the Texas toast is a must while you are grilling. You can have the cooks prepare your meat for a small fee. I think it's 4.00?? I always grill it myself, that's most of the fun, grilling on either of the two big grills. I would get the mushrooms to eat with any steak, AWESOME!!!!

“Grill your own or have em do it for you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

If steak is your thing; pick your own here and they are delicious. An adequate salad bar for those who want to do that first. But the real deal is the steak and potatoes and texas toast on the grill. Mushroom appetizers were quite good also.
