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.

    The food and our waitress were very good. We were disappointed by our hostess experience. We just answered the questions on whether we wanted to sit in the main dining room or sit outside. When we got there, we were told that we were sitting outside and it was 55°. After much haggling we were finally told that we could sit inside and we had to complete our dining experience within two hours. The fact that we were asking to sit inside versus freeze to death and spend $250 we were treated a bit rudely. The dining room we were sitting the entire time was completely empty, except for us, so I’m not sure why the obstinance of working with us was was an issue. Again, the food and our waitress was excellent.

    As always, the food and service at Alexander's were superb. My only small disappointment was they did not acknowledge it was our anniversary. I had indicated that in our reservation. But I'll get over it.

    Delicious food! We started with the shrimp cocktail which had an amazing cocktail sauce! Husband and I both got the beef tenderloin which was cooked to perfection. Finished by sharing the chocolate mouse & bread pudding. I don’t usually care for bread pudding but this one was great! Highly recommend!

    Nice place for New Years Eve. A little surprised at Crème Brûlée….liquid at the bottom, not solid custard. Crème Brûlée in past was served in the shallow boat-style dish. This year is was a cup. Otherwise, all food was delicious.

    Klara was our server and I can't say enough great things about her. She was the *only* one serving two rooms and about 10 tables. She was friendly, attentive, and, even with all that, made you feel like you were her only table. I hope Alexander's appreciates what a great employee they have in her!

    Ate in the Bar. Service was great. The ribeye was delicious. The only issue was the baked potato was small and over cooked. The crust was so hard, I had to use my steak knife to open it. We’ll definitely go back. Plus I think I found my new “watering hole”.

    Wonderful birthday dinner for Becky and I. We arrived early and on a busy Saturday night, they found a table for us on the 2nd floor. Met fun and interesting folks at joining tables. Cocktails, dinner and dessert all very good. Salado all dressed up for Christmas. All and all , a fun afternoon and evening capped off with fine dining at Alexanders.

    Perfect spot for a little date night! We sat on the back porch and over looked the water and scenery! Very peaceful and relaxing. Food and drinks were delicious! We got the pork dish and lamb! We both stepped out of our comfort zone with getting the pork and lamb and it did not disappoint! Glad we decided to try it! Normally we go for the usually rib eye or pasta! Service was great! Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable about what we should try! Can’t wait to go again! We live in Killeen so it was nice to get away from the typical chain restaurants.
