This little gem tucked away in the middle of Front Street is an excellent find for fabulous food. Eddie Chacon has taken an alleyway and turned it into a fabulous little spot. The sidewalk seating takes up the slack especially in good weather. We love to wander down and have a taste from the bar menu - small plates -... More

Wine came 5 minutes after entree. Risotto was gluey. Dessert way overrated. Need to pay attention to details in order to move up a notch in my ratings.

My wife and I were meeting two of my former students for lunch in the charming little town of Georgetown, South Carolina, and we ended up picking the perfect place, Alfresco Bistro. The weather had been very mild earlier in our time on the SC coast just after Christmas, but it turned cold and windy that day so our original... More

After shopping in this quaint town of Georgetown, SC, We stopped to have lunch. The side enclosed patio was very intimate and cozy. The food was exceptional as well as the service. Great Southern hospitality!

After a enjoying walk around Georgetown we decided on the Alfresco Bistro for lunch. Nice table outside, attentive service and nice menu. A great spot to relax in downtown Georgetown.

We went with friends who recommended Alfresco Bistro as one of their favorites in the area. We were not disappointed with the food. Good, fresh Italian food with good, not over-the-top, wine list. However, the service was indifferent. The staff needs more training. I am not a fan of overly friendly wait staff who hover and try to be your... More

First class atmosphere, first class service and first class food.......We were seated in the bar very busy with locals and were served by a very charming New York trans-plant who found the South much more to her liking.......She recommended the crab-stuffed lobster with grilled asparagus and we couldn't have been more pleased.....Fine dining is unusual in a bar setting but...

This place is well worth a visit for lunch or dinner. We started with a cup of tomato basil bisque, which was a tad salty, but still excellent. I had the turkey Tuscany wrap, which had red roasted peppers and cheese. Grilled to a crisp texture, it was outstanding, as was the salad which accompanied it. My companion had the... More

We went here for lunch and sampled widely among their offerings. They have an extensive menu supplemented by daily specials, and, although the day was gray, the menu offered a rainbow of choices. We sampled both fish and pasta dishes, but were most impressed with their tuna nachos and their mushroom - lobster bisque. For some relatively low cost items,... More
