We cycled from Columbus for a romantic weekend, and stayed at the Grand. The Alcove was a great find: beautiful inside, great old fashioned bar with signature cocktails. The prime rib was perfect. Service perfect.

This restaurant recently underwent major renovations, which have resulted in significant improvements to the decor and menu. However, the service still needs improved, as it took over one hour to receive our lunch order.

Superior wine list; choices of lamb, beef, chicken, fish entrees; wonderful first-class interior and awesome bar and bartenders! Styled on Cameron Mitchell world class restaurants, this is a jewel in midwestern, casual, farm country Mount Vernon. Top notch and worth your trip!
