    We ate outside where it was a bit too cold. However, the staff did a great job with space heaters and blankets. More space heaters are a good idea for a few months a year. All agreed that the food and service were AMAZING…6 stars!

    Restaurant Week and in town for a conference. Did a lot of investigating and decided this was the most unique option for our group. Authentic German was very interesting to me. Lots of good Italian options but nothing unique about that. Our server was fantastic. All 3 courses of my meal were excellent. I started with potato pancake which was delicious. I used the sour cream provided and loved every bite. I followed that with the sauerbraten with spaetzle and a red cabbage. The entire plate waa perfect with the red cabbage being a real bonus and the meat being perfectly seasoned. I ended my meal with the German Chocolate Cake. Dense coconut layer, luscious chocolate, and a dab of whipped cream. Yum!!! Great experience.

    I started my meal with a potato pancake. I had heard they were very good and I was not disappointed. From there I ordered their pork schnitzel and thought it was coming with mashed potatoes. However their homemade German noodles were substituted. I wasn’t as fond of those, but the vegetables were also very delicious. Waitstaff was continually checking on my progress. At the conclusion of my meal, I took home a piece of their delicious German chocolate cake. My only regret all evening was that I should’ve asked for some of the pickle beets to go with my meal. I would definitely recommend Alfreds to people for enjoyment.

    Excellent food and service! We continue to say this… love the food and service but the Ambience needs help. Please address lighting! Too bright, dining room needs to be dimmed and add lamps to tabletops. Keep chefs kitchen lighting bright. Artwork hung too high and please add some music?!!! It would make ALL the difference, I’m a designer and would be happy to help you at NO Charge😍

    What a great experience. We were outside - there are heaters and blankets (we didn’t need the blankets) and it’s under cover, very protected. It was quieter than inside and our conversation was easy to hear. The food was amazing - the specials all sounded great but we just had to go German and it did not disappoint. We will def go back!!

    Alfred's RestaurantResponded on January 25, 2023Hi Kristi, Thank you for sharing your thoughts on your evening with us. We are so happy you enjoyed everything! We know it can get cold in the winter especially dining outside so having those heaters and extra blankets can really make a difference. Glad you enjoyed the food as well. We hope to see you again so you can try our specials!

    The only complaint I gave is finding the place, its tucked in behind two other restaurants.

    Alfred's RestaurantResponded on January 25, 2023Hi Garoma, Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed everything. Yes, our restaurant is tucked away behind Sea Grass Grille and next to Santa Fe Cafe; we try to put our sign out in the parking lot to indicate where we are. Perhaps we can look into additional signage or instruction on our website. We are happy nonetheless that everything else was met with positivity and hope to see you again.

    Another fabulous dinner at Alfred’s last night. Our group of four enjoyed a selection of three starters and four different entrees, each a German dish, and all were superb. The potato pancakes, beet salad and bratwurst were classically prepared and delicious, as was the wiener schnitzel, pork chop, German mix platter and pork schnitzel. Our waiter Ben was outstanding, bring us multiple wine tastings to aid in our selections, and was extremely engaging and helpful. We’ll be back soon.

    The dinner was excellent. I had the halibut with potato crust and fresh crab. The accompanying spinach was gently sauted. The sauce was perfect. The appetizers and salads on the menu looked delicious. I usually do not eat dessert but wanted to try something house made and German. We selected the apple strudel with ice-cream. The waiter brought us a sharp knife because the bottom might be extra crispy. It was flaky, crispy and delicious! The wine list is extensive with great choices at every price point. We enjoyed lovely German wine which was something we haven't had in a while. It was perfect with our fish choices. The waitstaff and manager were warm, accommodating and attentive even though it was a full house on a holiday evening. The service was perfect. I can say that our dinner at Alfred's was the best meal we have had since moving to SC. Our only regret is that we hadn't gone there earlier. We can't wait to have dinner there again. Again, I think this might be the best restaurant in the area. It is really special in so many ways.

    Service was good. Good was good but not excellent. We were finishing a last glass of wine after being there for a little over an hour and were asked to keep things moving along as they needed the table. I have never been rushed at a restaurant before and especially never before we were finished with our meal.

    Alfred's RestaurantResponded on January 27, 2023Dear Tom, Thank you for your comments. I apologize that you felt rushed. As a 4:30 reservation on Christmas Eve, it was not possible for us to allow patrons to linger. We are a very small restaurant and we allocate 1.5 hours for a 2 top - that information was in fact on your confirmation. After allowing you an extra 15 mins to finish your wine (4:27-6:16pm) it was necessary to ask you to finish out of respect for the next guests. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you again.
