Our food was exceptional. Highly recommend the 16oz ribeye. Logan kept our courses timed perfectly so we weren’t rushed nor were we waiting for the next. Number one with a Bulleit cocktail was quite refreshing. You will pay a good price for an evening out, but the experience was worth it. Especially for any special occasion.

About the restaurant
Alexander's Craft Cocktails and Kitchen was named after the distillery located on the grounds from 1861-1865, which washed away in a flood (historic marker located between the restaurant & The Manor).

The newly renovated main bar is located on 1st floor, and opens onto expansive wrap-around, creekside porches. Just a few steps down from the porches is an open deck situated beneath gracious Live Oak canopies.

The warm aubergine & copper walls of the third floor lounge contrast the amazing art representation from local galleries. The stunning view of Salado Creek as well as the grounds of the neighboring estate provide the perfect spot to enjoy your favorite beverage. Patrons choose from a variety of entree selections, appetizers, and adult beverages.

Lovely dining room looking out onto a lush garden area. Service was a little slow in the beginning. It once we were waited on everything was times just right. My husbands ribeye was cooked to perfection and very tender and tasty. The side of mashed potatoes accompanying it were cold but like he said he wasn’t paying for the potatoes, just the steak. The shrimp cocktail we started our dinner with wasn’t anything special . The desserts were yummy. The bread pudding with ice cream was so good and my crème brûlée with fresh berries was also very good. It was a lovely evening celebrating my husband’s 79th Birthday!

About the restaurant
Ronin features elgant farm cuisine with a constantly evolving menu. Set in the beautiful, newly-renovated historic Ice House on Main in downtown Bryan, our restaurant shares an open-air kitchen with our dining room, floor to ceiling exposed brick, and hand-built, suspension tables made from wood salvaged during renovation.

Our menu is updated daily, based on what we have harvested from our garden during that given week. Our farm is located just seven miles from our restaurant. The climate and changing seasons play a major role in what we serve. It is our intention to always provide a variety of menu options and to accommodate any dietary needs.

About the restaurant
An upscale casual Italian Steakhouse in the middle of downtown Waco! Our sister restaurant opened in the early 2000's in Temple and 20 years later we are ready to come and serve the wonderful people of Waco. A large dinning room and patio paired with our private dinning room gives us plenty of space to accompany you and any guest.

Food selection will please everyone in your party, and the portions are Texas size big- so you shouldn't go hungry at Pignetti's. Now about the food: absolutely delicious! Everything from appetizer through dessert was outstanding. One of the owners stopped by and had a great time chatting with him. Warm and pleasing staff. We'll be back to dine there again!
