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 sat on the porch seating area. The view was beautiful. We came for 6:45 and the sun was setting and shining off the water. We also so a lot of deer crossing over the stream/brook. The food was AMAZING. I had the pork-chops , mashed potato, roasted carrot and zucchini. My husband had a steak, green beans and fries. My most favorite dessert the creme brûlée was divine. We will be back!

    My best friend from college and I were visiting Salado. I knew of the restaurant from when we sent my parents to stay at the Inn and have dinner at the restaurant for their 30th wedding anniversary. I remembered that they enjoyed the food very much. We did as well and the service was excellent. Beautiful property and grounds. Highly recommend

    I had the 2 bone pork chop and it was excellent. Mac and cheese was very good. My wif had a strawberryand spinach slas with an added side of salmon. She says it was good. We shared a bread pudding for dessert and while it was okay it could have been better (too much ice cream)

    Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Alexander's. The food was outstanding, great service, and all in all a very special evening. My husband had the pork chop - very generous serving - we could have shared that. Unfortunately they were out of the lobster ravioli but I opted for the crab cakes - probably the best I've ever had. We were celebrating our 51st wedding anniversary - thank you for making it special!

    Two of us went for drinks and dinner. We climbed to the third floor lounge, where the bartender was friendly but the drinks were lacking. The very dry martine had lots of vermouth and the Old Fashion was too sweet. Then, we descended to our table for dinner. We began with a charcuterie board which was good. I ordered a very good red wine (~$80). The first two selected were not in stock, but the third was, and it was excellent. My wife's filet wad tender and perfectly done, but the accompanying asparagus was old, stringy and over cooked. My salmon was somewhat overdone, though I had ordered it medium rare, the "chipotle-honey: sauce tasted of neither, and neither the squash puree or the chopped kale were seasoned. Something must have happened to the restaurant during the COVID lockdown, because it is but a shadow of its former self. I do not recommend it for fine dining. Try the Barton House instead.

    We were told we couldn’t eat on the 3rd floor because we had a child with us. There was no way of knowing this prior to arriving for our reservation. We were then offered a table outside in the 105 degree heat and when we said we wanted a table inside, we were turned away. At no point did they apologize for the miscommunication, but instead made it sound like it was our fault for bringing a child. The staff was very rude and unaccommodating and we had to find a different place to eat last minute

    This was our first time at Alexander's, and it definitely won't be our last. Everything was fantastic! It was my birthday so I wanted something special, and I got it. My husband and I shared the crab cake appetizer. I'm from Maryland so I know crab cakes. These were delicious! I got the salmon; he got the lamb. Again, wonderful. Creme Brule for dessert didn't disappoint. Highly recommend!

    The food and service was outstanding. The only issue we had was the noise from 4 top table behind us. I realize it is not Alexander's fault, but they were talking like they were in a bar and the more drinks they had the louder they became. Overall we enjoyed our meal and visit

    This was my husband and I’s first time at Alexander’s and it did not disappoint! Not only was the food/drink top notch, but their customer service was top tier as well. We had several of their servers ask us if we wanted them to box up our food for us (we were wearing all white). We thought that was so considerate of them! I would definitely come back here again. The rooftop was amazing at sunset too! If you are looking for a nice romantic dinner spot, Alexander’s is the place to be!
