While this has been an Ashland favorite, Alex's has gone into a decline from where it once was and that's too bad.
The food we experienced on a recent dinner was less than average in taste...
The "Chicken Piccata" was without ANY flavor of lemon whatsoever. Not a hint. Zero. Very, very bland and the chicken itself was way overcooked and hard. A real disappointment for what should have been (and has been in the past) a good dish.
An order of the "Kitchen Guy's Pasta" (I think that's the name) was also very blah. Very little of the promised "spicy" nature and definitely not a "creamy" sauce, both promised on the menu. The pasta was way overcooked, to softness and the three small shrimp (geez...barely qualifies as the menu's promised ingredient) were also terribly overcooked and, quite literally, hard and tough. That "creamy" sauce made the dish seem like leftover spaghetti warmed up for a second day. It was quite terrible.
It was a disappointing meal and, with so many other better options in Ashland, probably our last at a place we once frequented.
I could never recommend it to anyone else at this point.
