    We celebrated our 51st Anniversary at the Alley. My wife had the Rack of Lamb and I had the Steak Diane. Both were excellent. We went at 5:30 on a Monday, so not very crowded. We took a bottle of our favorite wine from Orange Coast Winery and enjoyed no corkage fee. We have been going there for years, if not a couple of decades. We have never been disappointed.

    Everyone was friendly and attentive. Prime rib and liver and onions were wonderful. Only negative was the twice baked potato not a fan of fake bacon.

    My husband and I had a great time at The Alley. This was our first time eating out after lockdown so we were nervous but The Alley was prepared! They followed all CDC, federal, and local safety guidelines, guests were staggered and tables were separated. Staff wore PPE and menus were disposable. The service was wonderful! Our server was attentive, timely, and knowledgable. We were able to customize our orders without a problem and the food was outstanding!!! I highly recommend this restaurant and you will be supporting a local business owner wich is huge a perk of the whole experience.
