I feel it is the greatest place in Ardmore to eat,, The food is cooked to perfection, The atmosphere is great for dinner conversation and the sweet potato fries are "To Die For"

Best steak in town! The friendliest wait staff and high quality food! The sweet potato fries are amazing! I go there for lunch a lot and have the Alley salad... It's great! If you like salmon they have the best!! Haven't had anything that wasn't top notch!!

Went there while traveling on business, and everything was great! Service was spectacular (sorry, didn't get her name), food was great, and drinks were fantastic! I'll definitely be visiting again the next time I am in the area.

It was our first visit to Ardmore & our daughter took us downtown to Café Alley for lunch. It was delicious! Very good service, quality food, & a nice atmosphere. We visited for luch at noon on a Tuesday and it was very busy with a full parking lot. That is always a sign of good grub! Our party of... More
