This was not our first visit and had never been disappointed. This night, a mid week dinner had a decent crowd but no wait for a table. Good selection from the menu but this night was off.

We went here for brunch on Sunday morning. The cost is $11.50 per person, which includes a appetizer of either a plate of fresh fruit or crepes and then you choose your main entree for brunch. The waitress was very sweet and caring. We will definitely go back.

I cannot say enough good about this restaurant. Food and service is consistently excellent! A little something for any taste on the menu, my favorites are the salads, martinis and turkey burger. Brunch is great too!

the food is variable -- sometimes good, sometimes like an Applebee's. the bar is fun, good outside seating in summer. good location. service good --overall a fun spot but not for foodies.

From an extensive martini menu and specialty drinks to extraordinary food and exceptional service your experience here at Robin Alexander's will be exceptional! Children are definitely welcome and the Wednesday night fixed price menu is definitely worth a visit! Highly recommend!

Visited for the first time, and wasn't impressed. The onions in the salad had a very strong bad smell, dessert seemed out of the box, and ketchup bottle had split wine on it. On a better note waitress was kind and understanding and the chicken was well seasoned and cooked.
