“New Chef at Alex's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Alex's recently got a new chef, Sam Jackson, who has changed the menu and is consistently putting out delicious, creative food. He uses local veggies and natural meats in his salads and entrees. Enjoy the locals' scene during happy hour and eat on a budget, or have a salad and dinner in their back dining room, which has a real fireplace going in the winter. Dine on the shaded deck overlooking the creek in the summertime. Great drinks and great service! They also have bands a few nights per week if you want to listen to music and dance.

“Pretty decent place in downtown Ashland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We searched for a laid back dinner place on our first night in Ashland and Alex's looked like a good option. It's upstairs and has a very bar look to it with tables kind of off to the side. It's a little worse for the wear, but clean enough. We ordered drinks, which were okay. We split the cheeseburger, the pulled pork and chicken sandwiches. Each does was fresh, hot and pretty good. Our server was very attentive and did a great job in getting our orders correct and to us quickly. I like Alex's. It looks more like a place for a happy hour drink or to see a band, but the food was good and it was a very good experience.

Went to Alex's for Happy Hour. The prices were very reasonable, portions generous, and there was a good variety of choices for a Happy Hour menu. Server was very friendly.

“Great food at great prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

The dining area in the back of the restaurant is cozy and depending on the weather has a working fireplace. The building was built in 1899 and still has many original operating items. The wait staff is friendly and helpful in explaining items on the menu and even for large parties our wait staff has never written down your order but always gets everything correct! The prices for quality food are very reasonable. The service time is moderate and if going to a show afterwards, they are accommodating to make the dinner and check arrive timely. Highly recommend this establishment.
