Excellent meal (entrees were scallops and grouper); excellent service (attentive but not overbearing); tables were a little cramped together in the area with view of the water - they must have to pack them in! Beautiful dining room and inviting bar area with fireplace. Overall, great experience. Will definitely return.

Service was a little slow due to several groups serviced by our wait person. Even other wait staff noticed we weren’t getting prompt service.

There was a large party in the same room so it was extremely loud! The food was very good but because of the party the service wasn’t the best! At first everything came out super quick, too quick, then desert came out super slow. Overall it was very nice!

I’ve not eaten at Alexanders in a few years, not since it’s been under new management. I was thrilled. The halibut special with roasted capers was excellent, I ate every bite. Our server was Donna Williams and she could not have been more professional, personable, and helpful. When we remarked about the quality of the special, the new chef came out and introduced himself and shared that his sous chef had actually come up with the recipe. We enjoyed every aspect of the meal and will definitely return!

We have had good food here in the past. This time we chose the early bird specials, and my food was average at best. If we return in the future, we only be ordering off the regular menu, no early bird specials.

Great good, great service, great value. Then they surprised IUD with a delightful chocolate mouse to acknowledge my date’s birthday. It is a great value relative to the first rate quality. The setting was beautiful overlooking the water and SC forest. Everything about it was perfect for what we were looking for and it’s conveniently located near the Marriott Beach resort entrance.

First time at this restaurant. I don’t know if this open table reservation placement or restaurant protocol but with a nearly empty dining room at the time of our reservation being seated upfront by the entrance was a big disappointment. I am beginning to see a pattern with restaurant reservation through open table and not a very good impression with the restaurants with this practice. Plus now knowing how the restaurant is designed we will ask for different seating in the future.

Nchanny thank you for the review. We apologize the table selection was not up to your standards. Being a 90-95% reservation restaurant, most of the reservations request a window seating, which totals 6 six tables or 6 reservations. We average 40-50 reservations/tables per night in the weekdays and 60+ on the weekends. Table requests are granted on a first request and what is available upon arrival. How was service and food? Thank you again for your review.

It has been years since moving from Hilton Head and years since my last visit to this restaurant which is essentially unchanged from how I remember it. It has a pleasant ambiance although our requested seating at waters edge could not be accommodated because of a large wine tasting group which monopolized the best seating. The staff was pleasant and service was swift. The for was very good, although a bit pricey. Biggest disappointments were lack of even a minimal dress code(even though they advertised business casual). Seated n ext to us was a group of golfers dressed in shorts who appeared to have come directly from the golf course. Others in the restaurant were similarly attired. The other disappointment was the failure to make more than a passing note about my partner's birthday which we were celebrating. The reservation was made well in advan c e and mentioned the birthday occasion but the only recognition of the birthday was a "happy birthday" greeting from the hostess. It would not have killed them to bring out a cupcake with a candle. Otherwise why bother to ask if it's a special occasion

We have lived in Bluffton 4-1/2 years and have never been to Alexanders. We wanted to go someplace different for our anniversary. We were not disappointed. Ambiance was very nice, they wished us a happy anniversary and brought us a lovely dessert. The calamari appetizer was excellent, good wine choices, and the entree presentation was very nice. We went with another couple, and we were all pleased with our meal and service. We will definitely go back.

We took advantage of the early dining special (and many others were there to do the same). My wife and I both enjoyed our fish dishes, and my wife who rarely comments on the salad raved about this one. The waitress was attentive, the manager was engaged with customers, and the water view came with a great blue heron. Excellent.

Butternut squash soup was served barely lukewarm. Since Richard couldn’t be bothered to check on our table, sending it back was not an option. It was probably the worst service we have ever experienced at a “fine dining” restaurant. We really want to like this place, but we won’t be going back.

Alexander’s restaurant is one of the best if not the best in Hilton Head. The food is excellent and the service as well as the atmosphere is on par with the food. The cost is in line with other fine restaurants in the area. However, we would recommend this restaurant as you first choose when you are in the area.

Alexander's is another reason to visit Hilton Head. An absolutely fine dining experience. Our server, Christina, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and on top of everything. My wife had the Halibut Special and said it was outstanding. I had the Lobster Dinner and I can definitely say the chef knows how to cook lobster - delicious! Will definitely visit again.
