The food was amazing! Alvin, the owner walked around and checked on his customers. It was a homey feeling and the live music was a treat, the singer was fantastic! Would definitely recommend for brunch, but we will be going back for dinner soon!
We had a delicious mid-week dinner. It was tough to choose from the many menu options. The fried chicken was light and tasty; the blackened snapper was just spicy enough and the sides were well-seasoned. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. Alvin came by to say, "Hi."
Already looking forward to a return visit.
My first time there, but i really enjoyed everytging about it. My waiter chloe just started working there & she was really helpful & fun to talk to! I like that i was asked where i would like to sit instead of being put wherever they felt. I even met Alvin hself, thats sweet for a owner to actually come out & greet you and even come back out to make sure you were enjoying yourself. Definitely going back, lovely place to enjoy with your spouse. I also sugguest getting the rosemary chicken or oxtail, im super picky with food but that was absolutely amazing
Alvin and Friends is Amazing. Alvin and his wife Gwen are gracious hosts who make you feel like family. Live music and gourmet food cannot be beat.
I’ve been to Alvin and friends before for dinner and had a wonderful time. Food and drinks were lovely. Ambience was great. So I decided to try out their brunch and was severely disappointed. I ordered the chicken and waffles. The waffle was cold. The chicken was chicken strips. It was bland. No flavor at all. Someone with me ordered the omlette with home fries. When it came the fries were sweet potato fries. Nowhere on the menu said that it was gonna be sweet potato fries. The drinks were ok. When I went for dinner the owner was walking around greeting customers. I guess he wasn’t there this time so everyone weren’t on their Ps & Qs. The bill took forever to come. When it came it was the wrong figure because gratuities hadn’t been added as yet. After that was sorted out we had to wait forever for someone to come and collect the payment. Overall it was not a good experience after having such high hopes for it
An absolute must!! Great food. Great atmosphere. Alvin personally greats all the guest. First visit was great. Return visit was the same level of expectation and more. Will be going back again.
If you are looking for good food , great customer service this is the place
The worst dining experience i have ever had!! We live across the street and will never refurn. Waited 25 min AFTER we were seated to be asked what we wanted for dinner and we had never even seen a menu. Proceeded to order drjnks, waited 25 more min, hot our dronks and placed our order. We waited another 45 min and nothing. Not even im sorry your food is taking long. We finished our drinks pahed the bar tab and left. Not to mention this occured on Valentines day, i was going to propose that night! Never ever again. Its a shame, the food looked and smwlled great, wish i had the opportunity to eat it.
Went there for the first time ever on Valentine's day. I heard from an old coworker that the place was good so decided to give it a try.
We should've known it was going to go downhill once the runner told us our waiter was busy and would be with us shortly... 20 mins to be exact. We arrived when there were barely any people at the restaurant placed our orders and it took 35-40 mins to get each course. Our waiter forgot our entree and brought us the appetizer twice which we kindly rejected because we had already had it. Everything BUT the appetizers was COLD. We could barely taste the flavor in the food and tasted bland. Honestly I could've cooked a much better meal at home, which I regretted. It was WAY over priced for the service and annoyance we experienced. The menu said gratuity would NOT be included in the bill and they added it... guessing because almost everyone in the restaurant was complaining about the service they feared customers wouldn't leave tip.
There was a couple sitting next to us that got their food very quickly and they arrived AN HOUR later than us and we had the same waiter, but they seemed to know the owners, which was not fair to everyone else in the restaurant that was patiently waiting.
Overall, we will not be dining here ever again.
Music so loud that I wasn’t able to have a conversation.
Not a pleas experience.
Also the service very slow and had to ease for everything.
