It would be great if items on the menu could be marked as Gluten Free (if they are).
We had a lovely romantic dinner. Staff was knowledgeable and curteous, did not rush us and the food was very good. This was february, probably very differnet during the summer months.
Everything was good, except I was a little disappointed since it was my birthday and I requested a booth thru opentable comments on the reservation. When we arrived, there were empty booths available, but we got seated at a tiny table by the bar. Eventually people walked in and they got to sit at the booths....
First time out with baby since our son was born. Alice's Restaurant is beautiful with a great staff and delightful menu. The specials made it even harder to choose what to order! We enjoyed the entire evening. We will be back and cannot wait for it to be spring/summer to enjoy outdoor dining on the lake.
We love Alice's Restaurant - if you are on the fence on Alice's or another restaurant - Go to Alice's!
I can imagine that during the Summer Alice's is packed and probably someplace I'd avoid. However, in the off-season it's a wonderful, quiet spot with VERY good food and a great view of the lake.
Great value. Excellent food We've brought many guests to eat here. Especially love it in the summer.
My daughter & I love Alice's. We've been there quite a few times. Hard to find outdoor dining with a view in north jersey. Nice atmosphere, nice wait staff. My favorite spot even though it takes me 40 minutes to get there. Mac & cheese the best!
Had a wonderful experience at Alice's...food was delicious...great service...decorated pretty for the Holidays with a view of the lake...will definitely be back.
We loved it! Had a group of six - we sat, talked & ate for several hours - had a wonderful time. Food was great, service was excellent. We'll be back!
Always a dining pleasure when we go to Alice's. Service and food are excellent. Our favorite place on the lake and in the area.
Food was very good and the view of the lake outstanding.
Excellent! David Drake, Al and the rest of their staff made this experience worth the drive, even if it is off the beaten path. If you don't know David's outstanding reputation, simply Google him. His culinary skills rate among the best this seasoned, international traveler has ever experienced. David's foie gras rendition is absolutely legendary and sets the benchmark for all others to be judged against. And while the "menu" appears somewhat limited, just put in a special request to the chef and you won't be disappointed. Quality, presentation, service and value not to mention the scenic view elevates Alice's to the ranks of the best of the best...
Definitely worth a visit!
Alice's never disappoints. Great food and an excellent wait staff.
Alice's never disappoints! The food was suberb and the service we received from Lynette was outstanding! This is what makes me a repeat customer!!!
Went there because it has outdoor seating, however there was a 45 minute wait. So we sat inside. by the time we got our drinks, 15 mins later there were several outdoor tables available. We didn't ask to move. The waitress came to take our order and the 2 things we wanted were not available. Menu had fish of the day, that also was not available. The striped bass on the menu was now substituted for cod. I ordered steak, which was tender, but the whole meal was very bland. Waitress came once during our meal. We finished our meal at 6:35 and the waitress finally came over at 7 to see if we were ok. We asked for bill which was another 10 mins.The place is poorly managed and we saw several empty tables however, peole coming in were told 2hr wait
Overall very nice dining experience. Staff was friendly and efficient. Food looked and tasted great. Good selection on menu...plenty of dishes I am tempted to return and try. Every table has a great west-facing view of Lake Hopatcong and sunset. During boating season there is clearly the potential for a vivacious scene...
...and even if you aren't boating, you are less than 20 minutes from the big AMC theater in Rockaway, so it is great for dinner-and-a-movie date nights year 'round.
This was my second time to Alice's -- this time for brunch. Another wonderful experience with attentive service.
I love the sauces and spices the Chef is pairing with the foods. Great updates to some traditional menu items.
this place is excellent!!food is outstanding,ambiance is wonderful,music is great.our waiter brian was very nice and very helpful with the menu.he made us feel very welcome.we loved it.would go back again and again.
Just great!!!! Loooooooooved it!!!
Great spot to see the sunset over the lake, fun and casual.
Our meal was very good, burger done to perfection, everything served piping hot.
The service was excellent and the food was good. A little pricey for the portion size and the food was a little over "spiced". Very strong flavors, sometimes a little overpowering. I have been here three times now but I am not sure if it is worth another visit. I do love the fact that it is very child friendly. I hate when kids get crayons to keep them busy because they always end up on the floor and the kids spend more time under the table finding them then sitting and eating. Alices is brilliant by giving kids "bendaroos". It keeps them busy for the entire time and they love it!
loved this restaurant.food was fantastic!!crabcake outstanding!!bridget was our waitress and she was above and beyond great.she really made us feel very welcomed as if we were regulars.you can tell she really likes working here.we already made another reservation.also the music they play is awesome.the view of the lake is just beautiful.i highly recommend this restuarant
We were there for lunch on an off-season Sunday so comments on crowd, bar scene etc are not applicable. David Drake's skilled hand is apparent, even if he wasn't in the kitchen that day. The food is simple but fresh, creative and just well executed.
Disappointing that they removed the spinach & bacon salad (which was excellent and unique) from the menu.
Liked the envrionment, but was very disappointed in the food. With David Drake involved, thought it would be MUCH better than it was. Had the Paprika Grilled shrimp- tasteless shrimp, pasta a was stuck together and goopy- paprika sauce, non-descript. My husband had the ribs- ribs were baked or boied until the meat fell off the bone- no zest, no rub, no smoke- BBQ sauce was nothing better than Open Pit flavored.
Did love the corn muffin in the bread basket.
Been to Daryl's and loved it.
I'm not a big fan of swordfish but when they have it on the menu as a special, it is excellent...Great wait staff
This was our fourth visit to Alice's and have not had anything that was not simply excellent. Not a big menu, but everything is prepared very well. Service is attentive, but not overbearing. And the decor, while simple, is just right for the lake. Sitting on the deck on a warm night with a good wine and great food I'd just about as goodnas it gets. And Alice's really does it well. I should mention that ournfirst visit was in the dead of winter and everything was just as good.
Never had a bad dining experience in all the visits to Alice's. Great breakfast!
From a nice selection of entrees to attentive service and a great outdoor seating area (we were treated to a clear-sky sunset over the lake), Alice's was a perfect place for my wife and I to celebrate our anniversary on a summer evening. Upon arriving at our OpenTable reservation time, we were immediately seated by the friendly hostess in the outdoor area. Both our meals were delicious: the fish and chips had just the right amount of crisp and great flavor, and the BBQ spare ribs, with meat that easily fell right off the bone, were very flavorful. We ended the evening with a warm chocolate cake full of chocolatey-goodness.
We have already suggested Alice's to friends and will certainly be returning again soon!
Nice restaurant with good food and wonderful views.
Good food, nice selection of beer wine and cocktails. great views of Lake Hopatcong from deck. Inside is a little loud good value
Another delicious meal at Alice's. The food is just delicious. Thank you.
Great view of Lake Hopatcong. Very restful, and feels like summer. really good food. have had ups and down with service here, but this last time was quite good. figured the summer help is finally getting good. Can come fairly casual or your Sunday best. Have expanded the length of the bar and patio seating since last year.
Food was great, but, not awesome like on ur past visit. But, for a rainy noight, a perfect place to be.
We usually eat at Alice's once a month at least during the summer. We made a 7:15 Opent Table reservation but had to wait about 20 minutes for an outdoor table. It was a beautiful evening on their deck overlooking Lake Hopatcong with a clear view of the sunset over the Lake. Our waiter was very eager and although they did not have the exact wine my wife wanted he made sure to consult with the bartender who recommended something she liked very much. I had the cold cucumber soup which was a wonderful concept on a warm night but which needed an extra kick. My wife had a cold red pepper soup that was more flavorful. She had a burger which she enjoyed very much and I had the free-range chicken breast. Recommended for a summer night!
Gorgeous view. Excellent dining experience.
Excellent food using local produce. Great lake views,service and ambiance. We,ll be back!
This is our third time back to Alice's and we've yet to be disappointed. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. We will definitely be back again!
