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.

Hubby treated me for Mother’s Day and once again it didn’t disappoint! Everything was perfect, food, weather (we sat outside) and the service! This is our all time favorite place!

The food was great. My only complaint would be that our table in front of the bar could hear the staff yelling at each other from the kitchen at one point

We went here because of my daughters college graduation from Baylor. The menu looked good and then take reservations.
We arrived a bit early but they still had a table for us!
We ordered several appetizers since there were four of us. There was plenty to share and we enjoyed them. The KungPoa cauliflower was the best but the brussell sprouts were a close second.

The main entree's were all delicious. The Tenderloin was cooked to perfection.
The drinks were very good as well, a very successful dinner!

This was our first time visiting this venue. It was lovely from beginning to end. We had apps, salad and/or soup and entrees. All of the offerings were fabulous. The desserts were divine as well and service was excellent too. It is a bit expensive, but well worth it, so that is why I selected “Special Occasion”. We will definitely return.

This is the second time we have dined at Alexander's and the food and service is still top shelf. We did notice that the noise level (many other diners) was a bit higher than our previous visit; however, it was still acceptable. I highly recommend Alexander's.

We went for the Tues Prix Fixe dinner and had great value ($14.95 which includes a glass of wine and dessert) in a wonderful setting. The special was a grilled striped bass sandwich with fried green tomatoes & cole slaw on a hogie roll and french fries. Dessert was a delicious apple crumble with vanilla ice cream. The regular menu is available on Tues but it you like what they are serving as the special it is quite a deal.

Small town (Salado Texas) masterpiece. Located in an updated old Victorian house[?], the ambiance was very nice. Then the meal, double bone-in pork chop that was cooked to perfection, and incredibly tender and moist. If you order, get ready for a meal for two, its huge. Wine, salad, service, all top notch. Highly recommend.

Found the restaurant by driving around Salado and we made reservations based on the location; overlooking a creek and away from the highway noise. Able to dine outside on the lovely covered porch and the serve and food was fantastic! Even were treated to a deer parade on the creek at sundown. Next time we will be sure to enjoy the third floor cocktail area which looked great.

I’ve been twice. One for a date in the super cozy and cute upstairs attic area and the other with a friend for lunch on the porch. Both were very lovely and memorable experiences. The best restaurant in the Salado area by far. It’s quaint and quiet. The cocktails are great. It’s a great spot for a group or for a date. I wish I knew about this place sooner.

Waste of an hour long drive to get there. Food less than mediocre. I don’t understand all of the glowing reviews. And beware of the giant potholes on the road there or you may lose a wheel. The parking lot wasn’t much better either. Ladies, you may want to avoid heels.
