  • "This place was great! Awesome food, amazing server, nice place. Albeit a smaller place, we went with a group of 8 and everything was seemless. Would absolutely recommend."

  • "Very nice restaurant, small but comfortable. I liked the menu."

  • "Stopped here with kids ... Excellent location in Fells. Our waitress, Shae, was awesome! But the tots. Order the tots. Out-flipping-standing!! We all shared the Maryland tots (crab dip and jack smothered tots) and the Buffalo Chicken (shredded buffalo chicken with jack and blue cheese sauce) tots. Worth the drive into Bawlmore from anywhere!!"

  • "Calling the noise level "energetic" is being too kind. Four of us went to Alexander's for brunch, hoping to have a nice relaxed meal to send off a family member. Much to our distress, we were joined by Noisy Family, party of 20, complete with about half a dozen yelling toddlers and one woman whose volume knob was stuck on the maximum. The acoustics in the dining room are such that you can't hear yourself think when the place is busy; the noise just echoes off of the ceiling. Had we known when we got there that one can eat at the bar and that the tables in there accommodated 4, we'd have moved. The food was good, and the bloody marys and mimosas were great. I wouldn't go to the dining room again, despite our exceptional waitress."

  • "We went there to celebrate a friends last day in MD before starting her second year of law school. There was 8 of us. Our server started off friendly but as the night went on got very short with us (we were not an unruly group in any way shape or form, we were honest with her from the start in telling her we would split the check 4 ways and majority of us ordered crab cakes so it was not like our orders were difficult). Don't stray from the medal winning foods, one friend got the french beef tip sandwich (something a long those lines) and was very disappointed. I'll be back for the tots."

  • "My brother and I always go to Alexander's for brunch when he visits from out of town. We wouldn't consider going anywhere else! Great service, affordable, delicious food - downright the best french toast I've ever had. Plus the pint-size mimosas aren't too shabby. A great spot to start your day in Fell's Point. "

  • "I cannot eat gluten. They have the best gluten free menu of any resturant I have been to. I had so many choices I had a hard time deciding. The food was delicious. I will definitely return here. "

  • "We've been to Alexander's a number of times and even on this last visit, we were remarking how good it always is, how great the food is, etc. Then.... of all times, THIS is the time that the food was really just "eh". At least for my husband and I. My mom loved her salad, my son's food was good too. but my pizza and my husband's sandwich were just "eh". We were surprised. This is the first time that we walked away not being entirely satisfied. This won't keep us from coming back. We will be back! we were just surprised. We also LOVE that there is a gluten free menu. My son has celiac and coming to Alexander's is just easy with him - a definite draw for us!"

  • "The food was so so so amazing! It was pretty loud, but we did go on a Saturday night. Although there were mainly large groups there, they had two beautiful window tables available that had candles and fresh flowers on them. The weight staff was so kind and very attentive. I cannot wait to go back!"

  • "A group of 8 of us dined at Alexander's on a Saturday night and everyone had a great time and enjoyed their food and drinks. There were a few other groups that night and it is a loud, boisterous place, so it's good for a group of friends who like to talk a lot and laugh loud. The food is good, hearty, and well-priced. Our group dines out frequently and is just as comfortable in a pub as in a fine dining establishment, but the food has to be worth it, and indeed it is at Alexander's. Very happy with our choice! "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "I love Alexander's for their delicious tots and numerous gluten free options :) This experience was great but a tad different as we had a large group and it was clear they had several other reservations coming in as well. Our server was fantastic but another employee- I imagine a manager- wasn't. I had 2 friends surpise me by showing up so they were obviously not in the original reservation so I do understand the potential frustration on the server, but again, she was great! It was the other employee who had an issue. There were empty chairs away from the reserved tables and I asked if we could pull one up to each end- not adding any extra tables. We ended up doing it but she was so unprofessional about it. All in all I will still be back!"

  • "Our lunch at Alexander's Tavern was mediocre. 2 of us had pit beef panini sandwiches one with tots and he other fries. The tots were definitely the better choice. The fries were terrible, as were the sandwiches. I would not go back nor would I recommend this restaurant to anyone. The best comment I can give is that the service was very good."

  • "We basically went to Alexander's because it was close to the Privateer Festival and we wanted to find out if all the hype about the tater tots was true. Turns out it is. My daughter and my niece ate the majority of mine and we wished we had each chosen them as our side. The outdoor seating was limited, but it was nice to eat and people watch at the same time. Friendly servers. Reasonably priced."

  • "I love going to Alexander's for their array of appetizers. The crab dip tots are my favorite."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We used open table to make a reservation thinking they'd be busy for a Sunday. I was surprised that when we arrived, not only were they waiting for us, they had also reserved our table! Most places you go to, they don't even know they had a reservation and then they need to find you a table. This place was prepared and on point! The food was great and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I've been here before, and I would definitely recommend it to others and I will be back!"

  • "Te service was wonderful, and food is good. There were 12 of us and people came at different times and waiters were available and patient."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "I went here for brunch with a group of friends, because I didn't want to have to wait an hour + outside at some of the other, smaller brunch spots. The place was basically empty at 11am, and although it had picked up by the time we left, it was by no means crowded. Service- Our waitress was great and very friendly. No complaints there. Food- Meh. We are foodies, and thought the food was solid, but nothing to write home about. I could have made any of the dishes myself, but very satisfying nonetheless. Drinks- This is the reason I would go back. We bought a few pitchers of mimosas, and they were DELICIOUS. Definitely strong, and a bit heavy on the triple sec, which I liked. Yum. Also, they have great brunch drink specials."

  • "We were fortunate enough to eat there on Saturday night of Restaurant Week. The food was FABULOUS!!!! My husband and I are still drooling over the turkey pot roast, the beet/argula salad and the key lime pie. Whatever you are paying your chef, it's not enough. We will savor the memory of this meal for years to come. We had actually come to Baltimore for a play and by chance made reservations at Alexander's. Not only was the food a feast of flavors, but the service was excellent. Thank you!"

  • "A group of friends and I dined here for restaurant week. We should have known by how much their "fine-dining" restaurant-week menu differed from their everyday bar-food menu that we were asking for trouble. I ordered the pork "medallions" (basically slices of ham) and could hardly cut them with a knife. A few people ordered the white fish, and it was equally overcooked. I had the key lime pie for dessert thinking of how hard it is to mess up, and it was so tart that it burnt my tongue. I'm not exaggerating when I say it was one of the worst meals of my life! The service was great though, and the drinks were top-notch. We even had a few orders of their famous tots which were great too. Stick to bar-food and you'll probably be fine."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "My friends and I went there for restaurant week so I was expecting a good, upscale meal. We ended up having brunch/lunch there b/c restaurant week didn't start until that evening. There was nothing special about the food. It tasted like bar food and mine came out served cold."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "This place so cute and cozy. There's a lively bar on one side and a quaint dining room on the other. My date and I got a little table in the window. The waitress was very attentive and sweet. I'll start this by saying if you don't order anything else get TOTS. As much as I love potatoes I am not a fan of tots at all. My date and I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Tots and BBQ Sweet Potato Tots; both were fantastic! The combination of the sweet potato with tangy BBQ sauce and savory pulled pork was to die for. I want to replicate it at home! I also ordered the Maryland burger; the crab dip on top was delicious! I can't wait to go back. They have happy hour right? Because tots and beer sounds like the perfect combo after a long day of work."

  • "Took a last minute reservation at Alexander's Tavern. When we arrived there were no tables available. Hostess/waitress said "I didn't see your reservation come up" We were told there we tables in the back of the bar. We were sat next to loud speakers pumping music loud enough to fill bar but deafening to us. We waited 20 minutes with no one offering menus, drinks or to take an order. Being right next to the "kitchen" upstairs we were passed by numerous servers without so much as a hello. There are so many options in Fells Point this one should be skipped."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I had to send my soup back twice because it was cold. It was microwaved by the 2nd time because it had hot spots and cold spots and the cheese was rubber, there was no broth, just onions and bread. The pizza was really bad. The crab cake did not have enough crab in it to call it a crab cake. I would never go here again."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "7 of my friends and I went to Alexander's for the first time on Saturday to celebrate my birthday. None of us had ever been there before, so we figured we would try something new. We ordered multiple apps and several different items off of the menu and ALL were very good! Our server handled our somewhat large party very efficiently and was friendly the entire time. We will all definitely be back in the future!"

  • "I've taken a few large parties here and it's been great every time! The food is delicious, service is great, usually pretty quiet, and not too pricey! I'd recommend this place for anyone looking to grab a bite in fells, or as a place to take a large party. I got the Balmer pizza with crab dip, bacon and cheese..yum!"

  • "We went here with 12 friends to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday and it was perfect. The service was spot on (which is really hard to do with 12 people floating it and placing food and drink orders) and food was delicious!"

  • "We have been to Alexander's tavern twice. We chose it because it was rated as a good place for kids in Fell's point area. The first time the atmosphere was good, they were great with my son offering toys, etc, The food was just average. This second visit the food was still average and the service was ok but the atmosphere was not so good. We had brought our in-laws from out of town and 2 year-old-son and the music was very loud and many of the songs playing were explicit and loud. We weren't there late, our reservations were at 5:30, so I expected that they weren't catering to the bar crowd at that time. I guess I was wrong. We won't be back."

  • "This was my 2nd trip to Alexander's. The first time, my boyfriend and I had the tots and pizza with a deal. The tots were great, the pizza was so-so. This time, we went for a big brunch with friends with kids and out of town guests. They were very accommodating. We ordered the breakfast bowl (made of tots) as an appetizer, the breakfast enchilada, and the veggie eggs benedict. My english muffin was not toasted, so my warm eggs were placed on cold veggies and muffin. It was gross. I was very disappointed because out breakfast bowl of tots was delicious. If you go to Alexander's, stick to their tots. Their fancy food isn't up to par."
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "We chose this restaurant because it was listed as a kid-friendly place. It definitely was kid friendly with children's menu, crayons, and even toys to play with. They put my son's order in quickly so that he would not have to wait too long for food. The waitress was very friendly and very sweet to my son. The food and atmosphere were average."

  • "We've eaten here before, but always for lunch. This was our first time eating here for dinner and our last. This was for restaurant week, and the cook was in way over their head. The food was either over or undercooked and bland. The service was erratic at best. She was friendly, but disappeared for long stretches. We were left ready to pay our bill for more than 20 minutes and ended up having to ask another waitress to take our check. In an area with so many restaurants, there is no reason to come here."

  • "Quaint spot along one of the main strips of Fells Point. Nestled between other restaurants and stores, Alexander's offers a great neighborhood feel! The menu selections were tempting... I opted for the Fried Green Tomato Entree with the Rooftop Salad. The Old Bay Viniagrette was amazing!!! Great place for a group.. the noise level was a bit loud, but didn't stop us from having fun!!!"

  • "Although we did not visit the bar, it appeared that patrons were enjoying themselves thoroughly. We visited Alexander's tavern on a Sunday evening and the crowd was average. Even so, the noise level wasn't exceedingly loud and the service was great (I have to commend the servers on their team effort). The restaurant had a decent wine/beer/cocktail menu and many of the items on the dinner menu sounded appealing. Our dinner was average in quality and taste (nothing noteworthy), but the price was extremely reasonable. The surrounding area has many bars and restaurants but I would say that Alexander's Tavern can hold it's own (I would go again)."
    Dined on 7/28/2013
  • "We decided to try Alexander's Tavern for Restaurant Week and had a very nice meal. All of the items on the special menu are not part of the regular fare, but maybe they should be because they were fantastic! We plan to go back sometime when it's not Restaurant Week to try some of the intriguing items on the regular menu. This place is not the type that will impress a date, but for a very casual meal with friends and family it is just right. The bar area is a fully separate room from the dining area, so the noise level was okay for conversation, and I was never uncomfortable having my kids there. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable, too - and great with the kids!"
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "If you are looking for a standard, affordable brunch in a modern, but cozy restaurant, this is your place. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. I left satisfied, but slightly underwhelmed. The $3.50 brunch cocktails were good. I am pretty picky about my bloody mary's, but it was just the way I like it. The service was friendly. I go out often in Fells Point and strayed from my usual venues. I would probably go back, but it is not one of my favorites in the area."
