“Excellent and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

I ate lunch at Alfredo's Mediterranean Café on a Monday. I was a little concerned because when I was there a couple of years ago, service was slow. Not this time. The restaurant is nicely decorated in mid eastern style, the food was delicious and the service was just fine. Fresh food in a relaxed atmosphere. It was crowded at lunch on Monday! That says it all! Prices very reasonable. Family owned and operated. Highly recommended.

“Delicious food, slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

Food was delicious, very friendly host. A couple of small hiccups - waiter was slow to return for dessert order after we finished our entree, and then slow to bring the bill at the end. Also, my desert had a sheet of aluminum foil stuck to the bottom. But the food really hit the spot.

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

My wife and best friend ate here last night and we will be going back tonight. You can not go wrong on anything here, all food is cooked fresh and they have homemade deserts. The staff is very friendly and also comical.

“Excellent local restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

We were in the area for a high school graduation and family wedding. We always look on trip advisor for recommendations for restaurants and were very pleased with this restaurant! This is a small restaurant with down home service. The owner always made sure we were pleased with our food. They service complimentary hummas and after eating their freshly homemade hummas it will be hard to eat any other kind from the store. We were very pleased and will go back again if we are in the area. Highly recommended!

“Exceeded all our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

don't judge a book from it's cover. We took a chance and stopped for dinner and it was marvelous. Had a one man acoustical singer, great service, outstanding food. Excellent appetizers. Best chicken piccata I've ever had. We were very satisfied, and will definitely go back again.
