I was rather disappointed with the silverware and dishes. The staff was excellent and seemed to be trying to make the best of it. I eat with my eyes and the presentation was terrible

Used to go out and eat when they were in South Lyon before. Glad they have came back but it is a bit on the noisey side for me. Breakfast is great and food is pretty good. Still working out some kinks with service as some of the servers are new.

Alexander's is a pleasant, family oriented, traditional and reasonably priced restaurant. The atmosphere and meals are simple and enjoyable. Try the dill pickle soup for something really tasty. Their traditional menu items tend to be their best items. The wait staff are great and make me feel like I have just been served by a favorite aunt.

This place near downtown is a great place for weekend breakfast. The portion are good sized and the staff is very friendly. I have not been there for lunch or dinner but did look over the menu and it seems like a good selection of items for both.

Lots of locals were there including the Parish Priest when we were there for breakfast. Service was friendly and considerate. Food itself was average, though good portions. It is a small place and has an at home kind of feel to it.

We got some wings and some other appitizer platter. All was good. Heard from my daughter the perogis are awesome. Will definitely try them next time. We... More

Great Polish food. Very good service & plenty of choices on the menu. The homemade soup is delicious! Refills on the soup & the stuffed cabbage is very tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant.
