We came for lunch before checking in the the hotel, and found a wide selection of dishes including a non-soy based veggie burger. It was a perfect place for people staying at the hotel who didn't want to venture out farther. My only complaint is...More

I've eaten at Alexander's many times and have not had a bad meal. Food is tasty and hot. Service has always been wonderful and staff is very pleasant. The atmosphere is inviting. I especially loved hearing the piano player on the weekend evenings.

Alexander’s is a pleasant and popular stop along Route 31. The decor is modern with dominant wood; love the fact there was a live performer on the piano while we dined (but please turn off the other canned music in the other room while he’s...More

Fake cheese on a par with what might emerge from a dispensing machine at a local ballpark or hockey rink. I don't expect I'll die, but I'm guessing it'll be because I had only two bites. I would add that my server was a lovely...More
