    Another wonderful dinner in South Carolina. Food, service and ambiance were spot on. Probably the most efficient service (thanks Alijah and staff!) we’ve seen in the South.

    On this particular day, the restaurant did not live up to the elevated experience described on Open Table. The manager was working like crazy to keep it together, bless his heart. But there was a big crowd on a Wednesday night and it overwhelmed the staff. The special dish was good. Service was slow. We are tourists and willing to pay for a nice meal, but would not go back if we had the chance. Sorry, guys!!!

    Atmosphere wasn’t inviting. Our family was dressed up, but my oldest son had a hat on. One of the employees came over to ask him to remove his hat, which was fine, but for the rest of the night every time that employee walked by she stared at us as if we didn’t belong. Very disappointed with overall experience.

    This was the best meal we have had so far in HHI and that’s saying a lot because everything has been pretty good here! From the moment we walked in the door, we were blown away by the beautiful dining room that overlooked the water(river?) Our server Scott was amazing, very attentive and friendly. We got the bacon wrapped scallops, filet mignon, that was cooked perfectly, and peanut butter pie that was just out of this world. Certainly not the cheapest restaurant on the island but you definitely get what you pay for and we’d do it again if we were here longer! If you’re staying in Palmetto Dunes it’s a must. You won’t be disappointed.

    Early dinner options were available when we booked here and what an excellent deal! Your choice came with a salad and you could opt to have a $6 glass of wine as well. I ordered the Shrimp and Grits and it was OUTSTANDING!! Service was quick and fantastic. Husband ordered the Mahi and he enjoyed his meal. Fresh warm rolls were also included. Could eat that shrimp every day!! YUM

    First off, all the food was amazing, but getting to the table was an absolute calamity even though we had reservations. No order and no concern for reservations. We asked for a view of the water, where hostess said no problem and got a table ready; she said we will be seating you in a few mins. Two mins later she sat another couple at the table by water view that hostess said we would be seated. We got sat at a completely different table with no view at upper level. I had to go back to hostess stand because we were not happy, and asked why we didn’t get the view by water. Blonde Mgr lady gave some excuse that the other people came in first and their reservation was at 8:00. Just because they came in before us and their reservation at 8, but our reservation was 7:45 doesn’t mean they get seated before us. What is the point of making a reservation.Then the hostess start airing all the restaurants dirty laundry about mgmt and how unorganized mgmt is at the restaurant for all the customers to hear. I said to blonde manager what happened to the water view and the table, where she rudely she said “what do you want?” I responded that I wanted a view like she had promised. She said hold on and miraculously she found a table at the lower deck area with the water view within minutes. Like I said, the food was amazing, but that manger was absolutely unorganized and rude. Really messed up the vibe. If your going to spend 200+ for a meal, you don’t want to have to deal with that. Prime rib was amazing, Tile fish dish was great but fish was a bit over seasoned. Beet strings on top really cool. First time, last time, mainly due to the vibe that made it really uncomfortable. Waitress could care less that we were there too with no real engagement.

    We ordered calamari as an appetizer, but received a plate of fried vegetables and a couple of calamari and shrimp on it. We decided to try it instead of sending it back...it was so greasy. It made one of us feel ill and couldn't eat the rest of the meal that was ordered. The service was great and so was the atmosphere.

    When you walk in, you smell sewer. (Puke) The calamari dish is poorly seasoned. And if you really want a pasta dish with seafood, don’t get it here. This isn’t an Italian restaurant so it’s not authentic. Rotini don’t belong with a seafood dish. Disappointing. Do not even understand how this place is busy. Their food is subpar. Service was great, however.

    When we visited Alexanders two year's ago it was awesome. This time it was terrible. Our server forgot to take one of the 4 orders at our table. When we corrected it, she brought out the wrong meal anyway. She brought us a desert to apologize for the mistake and gave us the birthday cake meant for a child with Down's Syndrome at another table. The service was just awful this visit. The food was just ok. This restaurant has gone dramatically downhill in the past two years. This was sad as we were really looking forward to it!

    We were seated in the bar area. Food was good and service was very good. The ambiance was horrible. Before we even ordered dinner a large party came into the bar area and were extremely noisy. Not sure why you would place tables in your bar area without someone actually requesting to sit there. Could barely hear members of my family talking due to the noise level. When I left I went to the woman that seated us. I told her the food was good and the server was very good but the environment in the bar to eat dinner was horrible. She continue to tell me that when we arrived for our reservation that was the only table available. I told her then perhaps she should not have taken our reservation. I think more disappointing than the environment was the fact that she never apologized! Just kept telling me that was the only table she had.

    I had high hopes for this place. The wine was good but that was it. The service was extremely slow and painful to watch. Didn't seem like a staffing issue. Seemed more like the gentleman just didn't know how to manage tables well. The portions of food were big so keep that in mind if you go. No need to order an appetizer or soup or salad if you plan on getting a main course. I wish I was warned because I was stuffed after my soup and couldn't eat my main course at all. The soup and bread was a full meal. Just wish I would have been warned.
