I've been here a few times and the food and service have always been great. Can't wait for the deck to open up in better weather. A gem in town for sure.

We dined at Alex's last night. Great restaurant! Lovely decor. The service was great. Sandy was helpful and very prompt. We had two small plates: the salmon and the crab cakes. The salmon on the wood slab was very good, although I would prefer a bit less balsamic reduction on top. The rice that came with it was too salty. The crab cakes were delicious, albeit a bit spicy for my wife, who cannot not tolerate any degree of hotness. The coleslaw was simple the best in the world: light on the mayo and so fresh. The Caesar salad was good, especially because it was lightly dressed. Dessert was excellent, not too sweet. Keep up the good work. We'll be coming back often.

Having been in Oswego for many years for work, the opening of Alex's On The Water in the fall of 2013 was a revelation. It is not only frequented by guests at the surrounding hotels, but also becoming a favorite of the residents. That should tell you all that is necessary about the quality that abounds in this place. The service and attention to detail rival any other four-star establishment anywhere. The food is very consistent from the menu as well as nightly specials that are hard to pass up. Manager Will and his staff are second to none.

My husband and I went on a whim. We settled on a sandwich and burger instead of some other more elaborate entrees. The Cajun Bleu burger was the best! Both of our entrees were hot ands fresh. Our waitress was very nice and slightly quirky. The service was fast. The only comment would be that the desserts were homemade. The lava cake was good but we have had better. We will definitely be back!
