I love this restaurant. My favorites are the fried green beans with wasabi ranch, the cook shack chicken, the salmon sandwich, the mac & cheese, the chicken fried steak with jalapeño gravy... everything is delicious!

We had an hr wait for a table but it was well worth it. Our waitress was amazing. She was very helpful on the different choices available and everything tasted wonderful. I had a steak and my guest had the Chicken fried steak. We actually took food home because we just couldn't eat anything more. We also ordered the chocolate... More

Full of character and wonderful food. Rivals any restaurant in OKC. We had the steak and smokestack chicken. Both were excellent. Probably some of the best Mac and cheese I've ever had. Have to go!

We started lunch with the fried green beans which were delicious. We all had different burgers but we all agreed they were the best we have ever had! A cool atmosphere and friendly staff made for a great lunch.

We met friends in Ardmore for the day, as it's halfway between Dallas and OKC, where we live. We found good reviews for Cafe Alley, and found them to be true. Very good food, very good and friendly servers, nice atmosphere. When the restaurant was busy it was quite loud because of all the hard surfaces, but it quieted down... More

We enjoyed a late lunch here with friends and were delighted with both the food and the service. My friend who had the Cheeseburger said it was one of the best he has had. The waitress was helpful and very nice. The atmosphere is a little dark and sounds bounces, so I suspect it can be pretty loud if packed,... More

Had a great meal (salads and sweet potato fries) with great service and friendly staff. The manager came by to talk with us. She wanted to discuss our favorite school, OSU (go Pokes!). Even the restrooms were interesting! We certainly will be back!

I can't remember when I last had a steak this good. My rib eye was perfect and my wife's blackened talapia was just as good. We finished our meal by sharing a baked cheesecake which rounded off a great meal. Besides the quality of the food the staff made us feel so welcome that we can't wait to go back.

The Filet was excellent. the most tender steak I've had in a long time. you have to get worchesthire butter to go on it. Do not forget peanut butter pie for desert!
