Seafood
Alexander’s, an upscale seafood restaurant and long-time Hilton Head Island favorite on the dining scene since 1977. It features seasonally-inspired cuisine, locally-caught seafood and many locally-sourced ingredients.

Our menu pays tribute to many classic lowcountry and Alexander’s favorites such as Stuffed Flounder, Shrimp and Grits, and Wiener Schnitzel. Reservations are highly encouraged though walk-ins are welcome. Alexander’s offers dinner nightly from 5:00 PM-9:00 PM with early dining from 5:00 PM-5:45 PM.

Some of the best food we’ve had on Hilton Head Island. Service was friendly and impeccable. We will definitely go back next time we are on Hilton Head.

We will absolutely dine at Alexander's again. The food was delicious. My date had the prime rib which was cooked perfect and included some awesome horseradish. I had the scallops and wild mushroom risotto. It was out of this world. Our server was attentive but did not hover. It was a memorable night.

Another great night at Alexander’s. Our waitress, Donna, was pleasant and efficient as always. The way she pours wine is impressive! Sous Chef Stefanie is always sensitive to my wife’s dietary restrictions, something we both really appreciate. All our meals were delicious and nicely presented. We look forward to another enjoyable visit soon.

Have not been to Alexander's under new management until this visit. Everything from check in to departure was outstanding! Food was great, service was great and ambiance was too.
Clearly a five star in my view.

Staff accommodated our changing arrival time. Server was very nice and paid special attention to our little grandsons which they appreciated. Food was appreciated all around by our group. I am glad that Kistler Chardonnay is on the menu!

Price fixe menu for Thanksgiving and nothing out of the 3 choices was good. Disappointing. Beautiful ambiance though.

Lovely and sophisticated restaurant, without being stuffy or pretentious. Food was very good and the service was top notch. David, our server, was personable without being “your best friend”, which comes across too often as phony, attentive without hovering, consistently anticipating our needs at just the right time.

Thanksgiving dinner was a price fixed menu. The soup and salad entrees were excellent but the turkey was very thickly sliced and tough. My salmon was just ok, nothing special

As always, Alexander’s served a very special meal at a very reasonable price. The service was excellent; we were not rushed, and our waitress was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner.

We had family in for Thanksgiving and the dinner was great. My mother is very hard to please and she was very happy from start to finish. You what they say, "if momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy". Thank you very much!

My wife and I dined at Alexander’s four years ago and enjoyed the experience. Not so, last night, we were rushed through, food was poorly prepared especially my baked flounder with crab...it was tasteless and dry. Very poor experience!

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.

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.

Always a good meal at Alexander's. The fall is a great time to visit as it is not as crowded and you can spend an extra few minutes chatting with friends.

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.
