When we sat down the restaurant was not crowded. We had our two young kids with us. The service was pretty slow we sat down at 6:15 and didn’t leave until 8:45). We did not see our waiter very often, only when the food came out. The food was okay. I was excited to try the homemade tarter sauce with the crab cake. It was not very good. I also had the filet which was okay, not flavor. I asked for a steak sauce to hopefully give it some extra taste. It was the house steak sauce. Again, it was okay, nothing great. Overall, the food was okay. The atmosphere was nice and all the staff/servers were very friendly.

Rather expensive, especially with the beverage tax for those who don’t drink alcohol. Live music was great and one of the biggest reasons we’ve eaten there a number of times. Excellent facility.

This was a really bad experience. The menu looked terrific but only half of the items were there. The line for MTO omelets was 20 minutes long. The service was terrible; had to ask multiple times for "Bottomless" bloody Mary's that were watered down. At $32 each, I was offended. Save your money and go to Golden Corral.

I have never had an unpleasant dish at Alexandra's. I love the unique combinations of foods and spices used in the dishes. I love that the menu changes every time I go there with new options. It is my favorite restaurant. Recently had the scallop dish that included tomatoes, leeks, bacon, asparagus, corn & peppers, on saffron pureed cauliflower. Wonderful.

We had a nice relaxing brunch. Didn’t feel rushed, which was a nice touch. Bottomless drinks was also a win. Nice view of the golf course. Food was good. Choices were nice. Potatoes were a bit hard. Ran out of parfait quickly, and bowls for ice cream weren’t there when I went up. Also, live music was a nice touch, but quite loud. Was difficult to have conversation. So, nice day overall, but there is room for improvement. Oh, and initially I received an email saying we missed our reservation. I commented, and had that corrected.

We are regular diners so we know how good the food can be, but our first time guests raved about the food. They particularly thought the portions were generous. Our server was attentive and professional. The only complaint is that at times the noise level of folks hooting and hollering from the adjacent bar area is distracting, and generally interrupted good conversation at our table. Otherwise, an excellent evening out with friends.

The food that was offered was of good quality. For a medium to high brunch cost there was not a lot of variety. Service was slow to get drink refills and to clean off the table of the dirty plates. The brunch is help right below the hotel lobby and the noise level was pretty high. It would have been better in an enclosed restaurant setting.

Our server was fantastic. And we were pleasantly surprised to find out that Thursdays are steak night. Loved the crunchy yet tender calamari. My filet and his prime rib were the perfect portions and cooked wonderfully. It was our anniversary, and our server brought us a bubbles toast which paired perfectly with our lemon bar with blueberries gastrique!

Took my mom out who is currently residing at Encore. We sat outside which was beautiful - right on golf course with a fountain nearby. We switched tables from where they wanted to place us without issue and cleaned the new table readily for us.

Service was excellent -food was much improved from six months ago. We all enjoyed our entrees.

My family and I visited Alexandra's for an early Father's Day dinner. Our server, Joe was friendly and had amazing customer service skills. We began our dining experience with calamari and fried green tomatoes. The calamari was superb. The fried green tomatoes were a slight disappointment. The tomatoes needed more seasoning and as you sliced them with your knife the cornmeal coating fell off. The other downside is you only receive three slices for the price you're charged. The Children's menu has a three course offering which includes soup, entree, and a scoop of ice cream. Alexandra's offers crab cakes as one of their entree choices. For two crab cakes per plate the cost was $38. The crab cakes were moist and came with a old bay dipping sauce. The crab cakes we were served did not contain shell fragments. Overall, we would definitely visit Alexandra's again.

Side note: Alexandra's offers a Sunday Brunch which includes unlimited Mimosas and Champagne for those who drink alcoholic beverages. The cost is $32.95 per person.

My husband and I went here for dinner on 5/7/19 which was our 25th wedding anniversary. We had our reception at Turf Valley so this dinner was a bit nostalgic for us and I wanted it to be special. I noted this fact in my reservation. Our waiter, Jeffrey, finally arrived at our table to greet us, apologizing for'the delay' and took our drink order. I ordered us glasses of wine and once they finally arrived (took an inordinate amount of time and the restaurant was not busy). I ordered a zinfandel and when we got the wine it was red. I questioned this and was advised by Jeffrey that the type of Zinfandel was a red, not a white. I was clearly disappointed in this fact and at most restaurants, we would have been offered a different glass if we were unhappy. Jeffrey told me, hopefully jokingly, that I could pour my glass into my husbands since he'll probably drink it and then I could get what I wanted. Not a solution. I was fine drinking the red but my husband was not happy so this was a miserable start to our dinner. Throughout the dinner we had several people fill our water, clear plates, etc. We waited a long time for Jeffrey to approach our table at the end of our dinner which was clearly finished given our plate were gone. Again, he apologized for the delay. He dropped off dessert menus and I stated that we didn't want anything as we were full and ready to go. He placed the menus on the table anyway and suggested that we try a particular dessert and walked away. 20 minutes passed by before he came back, I reiterated that we didn't want dessert and he gave us our bill. At least 15-20 minutes passed again before he came to get our bill and when he finally brought it back, I noticed that he had a slight attitude and said, "here you go" and put the billfold on the table. No thank you, nothing. What was supposed to be a special dinner on a night that your restaurant was not busy turned out to be extremely disappointing.

I asked my server for lemons for my water and butter for the bread. Probably @ least 20 minutes went by with neither. I ate the bread dipped in the EVOO, but didn’t enjoy it, even though it was good-it just isn’t what I like. Finally, I saw my waiter and reminded him of both, and they promptly came out. I liked the waiter a lot. I think he was simply very busy. Then, my dinner came. I ordered the crabmeat macaroni and cheese casserole. I actually thought it came with broccoli, because I saw another diner being served this (hers had broccoli) and decided to get the same, but it comes to you just as a little 2” by 3” casserole- no veggie. The macaroni was delicious, but I could not find one piece of crabmeat. I flagged my waiter and told him this and he said they would make another. It arrived soon after, and it did have a few pieces of crabin it.
One of the biggest problems was that they had a band and a singer upstairs, and we couldn’t talk over the music. I learned my lesson. I will ask before making the reservation if a band will be playing.
Another issue is that I tried to all to make the reservation. I had to leave a voice message and gave my ph. # so they could call me. No one called. I finally made a reservation on line. I requested a table by the window. Almost all of those tables were taken when we got there. When I said I had requested a window table, the hostess and a server decided to sit us at the last table by a window.
The menu probably was ok, but I would have liked a light soup. There were soups on the menu, but not light soups. I definitely did not like the shrimp and grits. I tasted my friend’s, and thought it had a smoky taste and didn’t seem to be cooked enough. My other friend got the salad with seafood, and that looked delicious. Parking was difficult, and it was raining. We had to walk quite a way to get inside.
The bathroom for the restaurant was lovely.

Our first time visit was on 3/23/19. My wife and I tried Fried Green Tomatoes for the first time. They were splendid - and gluten free. We each also got a bowl of crab soup - cream and Maryland. Both were great, as a matter of fact my wife exclaimed "best ever!" Then we got shrimp cocktail, filet steak, and rockfish. Everything was gluten free (even the gratin potatoes) and delicious, except the fish. Wouldn't recommend that but would recommend everything else and Stephanie, the server. We would recommend her too. :) Drank water only, no desserts, $150 total. It was EXTREMELY loud here though.

I came to Alexandra's a couple years ago and I remember having a way better selection of breakfast food. It just seems to me that the breakfast side is limited.
