    My husband always enjoys the pork shank. He says it’s the best he’s ever had I always get the salmon and it’s amazing as well. I love the fresh vegetables. Last night we also had coconut shrimp, which was a special. It was delicious. We sat out on the balcony, and it was warm and very nice. We always enjoy our dinners at Alex’s.

    The venue was great, we only had beers while bowling, little slow on the service but very attentive when they were around. The market on the 1st floor was very impressive. If we lived closer to Clarkston, we would go there for everything. Amazing

    Christmas Eve dinner, so not expecting much - made reservation several weeks ahead of time and were seated next to the bowling lanes, which were being used. Food quality was good, service was ok, but value for price paid was not good - nice place for a group to enjoy the activities, but not for a nice family dinner! Thanks for being open on the Holiday Night and your staff for serving - it was appreciated...

    Food was delicious. Ordered chicken shawarma and it was so flavorful. Wait staff is very friendly. We loved the ambiance however, when bowlers are active, it’s a little noisy even though they are down the hall.

    Food is overpriced for what it is. Got an upset stomach from strange tasting oil used for the entire shawarma plate. Will probably not be back. Waitress was nice and quick.

    It was a fun, interesting venue. It was a gas station outside...full on market, coffee / gelato shop on the bottom floor with a nice stock of wines and liquor for sale. Upstairs was a 4 lane bowling alley, virtual reality room, a golf room, a bar area as well as outside seating. The food was amazing, wine list was good along with a brewery listing of beers to choose from. Go have a great time!!! We did and hubby even went back the next day with his friend.

    They were very busy, food took a while to get out, some of the food was cold and our burger was overcooked. Megan our serve made things right. All the food was eventually to our liking, she took a meal off the bill and brought the four of us dessert. Even though they were very busy, she an management took care of us.

    Exceptional service. We ordered shawarma and chicken kebob, a little bit oily. Pita bread can be added to to the shawarma entree. We loved the godiva cheesecake with vanilla ice and caramel.

    A real gem, an outside restaurant on top of a coffee, pastry shop, upscale grocery, wine and liquor store. Miko our server was pleasant, friendly and helpful. Boom Boom Shrimp weren't Boom Boom but never the less quite tasty. We all liked the chicken wings.

    The food at Alex’s is always consistent, fresh and delicious, the cocktails are decent and the on tap beer/pop/cider selection is great! But what seals the deal when dining at Alex’s is the service—Megan is AMAZING—we love our experience every time she is our server!

    Nice Mediterranean style menu, some other items offered. Server didn’t come around enough. We had to ask other servers for refills. She was nice but disappeared a bit. We ordered hummus which needed more zip, too much oil made it water, Not enough bread for hummus. Portion. They gave us some small squares, we asked for more and then saw our bill was charged 4.00 for bread. I’m used to getting free bread with hummus so I guess I should have asked or been told? The food we saw coming out all looked amazing. My husbands food was cold but he just ate it vs asking for a reheat. I got a fattoush salad added chicken, it was 21.00. I think too expensive but I wanted to try their salad. Needed more dressing, with again more zip to it. It wasn’t the typical fattoush salad. The rice pudding was amazing. Pistachio ice cream included. For 3 off us, 2 waters, 1 ice tea, hummus plus extra bread, 3 meals 80.00. Bit high for our preference but without a appetizer, 1 dessert, extra bread, not adding chicken would have been a easier price to swallow. Nice atmosphere. Big place, nice bar, nice outdoor deck. I would try again but will pay attention to extra.

    Absolutely delicious! We had no idea this restaurant was even here - don’t be fooled that it shares a building with a gas station and market. The food quality was beyond our expectations! I highly highly recommend the lamb shank - it was fall off the bone tender. The baba ganoush was smokey and creamy. The tomato kibbeh was flavorful. The gravy on the truffle fries was different than your usual truffle fries, almost like a poutine. Very tasty. The beer list is quite extensive with over 100 on tap, many local. Regarding the service- I saw a few reviews saying service was slow. Remember restaurants are short-staffed no matter where you go right now. Be kind and patient. Our experience was actually quite different though; our server was right on top of our drink and food orders with no lag. We’ll be back 🙂
