Alexander's Craft Cocktails and Kitchen was named after the distillery located on the grounds from 1861-1865, which washed away in a flood (historic marker located between the restaurant & The Manor).

The newly renovated main bar is located on 1st floor, and opens onto expansive wrap-around, creekside porches. Just a few steps down from the porches is an open deck situated beneath gracious Live Oak canopies.

The warm aubergine & copper walls of the third floor lounge contrast the amazing art representation from local galleries. The stunning view of Salado Creek as well as the grounds of the neighboring estate provide the perfect spot to enjoy your favorite beverage. Patrons choose from a variety of entree selections, appetizers, and adult beverages.

We will definitely be back! Our food was delicious, the wine very nice and the service was excellent!
Have told many people about our experience already. What a gem in Central Texas, in the charming town of Salado.

food was delicious. Twice baked potato wasn't really twice baked and had none of the usual creamy additions like butter and sour cream or bacon. The creme brûlée was disappointing too. Taste was good but the texture was runny.

Cocktails were perfect!

We enjoyed the evening. Was for our 26 anniversary.

But, think entree should come with choice or soup or salad and always bread and butter on table.

Friendly staff and very attentive.

We loved it—sat on the beautiful porch overlooking Salado Creek. The service was outstanding and our food was delicious! I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the ribeye—both were wonderful! Great wine list too! We will definitely be back next trip to Salado!

Alexander’s is a lovely location! Beautiful view from the back patio however in the summer it is too hot to enjoy. The white wine was not chilled, the croutons on my salad were too large to cut and too hard to eat whole without breaking a tooth and our steaks were overcooked. However the shrimp cocktail is fantastic! COVID and masks also have a tendency to ruin romance and ambience. Overall the experience was fine but we probably won’t go back.

The food was okay. I don’t think it was worth the $150 I spent. Drinks were watered down, steak was bland, they sat us by a door and it was constantly opening and closing, letting the heat come in by us. Service was ok at best, only saw the server when it was time to order and when we got food. Sat at the table for nearly 15 minutes before I finally asked someone who I’m supposed to pay. Don’t think I’ll come back here.

Great evening. Weather was pleasant enough to enjoy outdoor dining and taking in the beautiful creek side scenery including some ducks and a few deer. Cocktails, appetizer and our entrees were delicious. Desserts were wonderful too. Always a favorite of mine for special occasions.

Great dining experience. Celebrated 47th wedding anniversary. Ribs were falling off the bone. Portion enough for 3 meals. Super value for the dollar. Waitress was wonderfully attentive. A true hidden gem in Salado. Will use fro special occasions in the future.
Telling neighbors and friends to go there.

We had the Tuesday special of meatloaf, potatoes and squash. Also included a glass of wine and a dessert. Great value and delicious food. There was limited seating that night and we ate in the bar area. The outdoor seating is good and the view is quite lovely by the creek. We prefer the outdoor area when the weather is nice. We have been to Alexander’s many times and have enjoyed the meals. The menu is a bit limited due to COVID-19 restrictions limiting the number of people in the restaurant. Will be glad when things are back to normal and restrictions no longer needed.

Great and rather elegant, but still casual, spot to eat someone else's cooking for a change - especially things I would never make. Crab cakes good and tasty, steaks on-point, shrimp grilled perfectly. Skip the fancy cocktails, stick with the nice wine choices. Safe dining outside, staff in masks. Easy parking, pretty view of the river from the porch. Sort of pricey, but made up for the 10 weeks of eating in. Nice place for a celebration, which it was.
