    The food was wonderful and quickly prepared! Had a very nice evening celebrating a recent home purchase, enjoying the spectacular view and enjoying the tasty dinner with friends. Prime Rib was very good - as was the shrimp burger.

When we mentioned that to Angela she immediately became overjoyed with blessings. We were all incredibly moved by here graciousness. She escalated our evening from special to extraordinary!

    We had a dinner reservation for a birthday dinner. This was noted on the reservation. When we were asked about desert, we declined stating we had a birthday cake waiting for us. No acknowledgment by the server regarding the birthday. Service wasn’t bad, just not personable. Food was average.

    I always book a reservation here on my yearly trip to Hilton Head Island. I just love this restaurant. I love sitting by the water and watching for the alligator eyes to pop above the water. The food and drink are always excellent and the service is superior too. It's a must for me each time I visit.

    Our steaks were good and cooked to order, but I requested a substitution (mushrooms for fries), and instead did not get the broccolini. Our server realized it and mentioned it. We told him not to worry about it, but I felt that he should have corrected it anyway. Water was never refilled. We had reservations and were seated in the bar. Ambiance was not as nice, and a VERY loud group came in and stood at the bar and made conversation at all tables pretty much impossible. This was our anniversary dinner, and frankly, it was a bit disappointing. All in all, would recommend Alexander’s, but not as a first choice.

    Alexander's continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Hilton Head. This meal did not disappoint. I hosted a friend from Colorado and the food, service, atmosphere at Alexander's made for a memorable occasion. Alexander's is also one of the few Hilton Head restaurants still offering an Early Dining special - smaller plate sizes for a smaller price. Highly recommended.

    Mother’s Day brunch was a bust. Made a reservation for the special 3-course prix fixe Mother’s Day brunch to celebrate my 89 year old Mother-in-Law. I understand they are short staffed (who isn’t!). Our party of 5 was patient but service was super slow (I know…it’s a holiday!) We did get the drinks we ordered . 3 of our 5 family members ordered the prime rib entree. After 1 hour, and not receiving the first course, our server advised that they were out of prime rib. I asked if they could possibly substitute one of the other beef entrees on their regular menu (since they are open for dinner tonight!) and was told they could not. Asked to speak with manager, no luck. So I called another local restaurant while we were waiting to see if the manager would come over (he didn’t) to see if they could fit us in for lunch (they could) and that’s what we did, left Alexander’s. As we were leaving, we heard the manager telling another couple that they were out of prime rib and could have flat iron steak or filet as a substitute. We would have liked that same courtesy but it wasn’t available to us. Ended up having a great meal at Lagerheads. All’s well that ends well but we would have loved to enjoy brunch at Alexander’s but I guess it wasn’t meant to be.

    The food is pretty good these days. There are better options around at this price point, but if not expecting greatness, you will be happy. It's more meh than bad. I would go back but I'm not in a hurry to get back. The seating in the enclosed patio along the duck pond is recommended and a great view of nature and the fauna of the Island.

    We went for the early dining time with selections on a prix fix menu. The selections were decent; however the food was not hot. Our waiter Daniel was efficient, but not pleasant. He did everything like a soldier, and did not ask us how our meal was, and cleared our appetizer plates without even asking how it was, or if we were finished. The meals are served by runners, so basically your wait staff takes your order, and brings you cocktails, and your check. I felt like we were on an assembly line, and even though we had a nice table with a pleasant view, we were out of there in less than an hour. Not the dining experience we were looking for.

    Nice date night location. Food good but very pricey. Mixed staff - some very personable, quick and efficient while others almost unfriendly and slow. I realize I don't know what they are dealing with, but when doing their job, they could try to be nice. Quiet in the sense you could easily have a conversation with people at your own table.
