A bit more class than many Florida restaurants of this type. Food just like you get along the coast of of Maine and Massachusetts. Several "all you can eat" items, all breaded and deep fried. Also make an especially good and big burger for carnivores....More

Good food. Food is cooked to perfection. We go about 1x year to indulge. Most things are fried. Cute restaurant and friendly staff. Very clean.

Just like the one back North. If you like New England seafood you'll find this place is one of the closest to it without driving 🚗 800 miles. Try it at least once and decide on your own.

Four friends out for a drive and found Alena’s on Trip Advisor. Two had the 1/2 Catfish Plate, 1 grouper and 1 had the Flounder. All were good, lightly breaded and deep fried. This is New England style so no hush puppies.
