I was reluctant to enter due to the strip club vibe; but once i did it wasn't bad. The "island" theme food is rather good (I had the Aloha platter) if simple and very inexpensive. The drinks are strong (one Singapore Sling and I was...More

We only got to experience the karaoke portion of the Alibi, but we loved it. We had already eaten so we did not get a chance to try any of the food and our drinks were standard; none of the signature cocktails made it into...More

The decor is 1940's Hawaiian kitch. The food used to be pretty good, but seems to have suffered with the neighborhood decline. Ordered the royal Reuben, which used to be outstanding, but is today half the size and taste it used to be - nothing...More

Or maybe a zombie--rum is king or queen here. The decor is a blast from the past and so much fun. Bartenders are attentive and make a heck of a drink! Coconut shrimp and steamed potstickers were very tasty too. Go, drink, sing if you...More

The Alibi is a classic. The door is a time machine. Enter and you are back in a vintage tiki era. The food is tasty and the drinks are sweet and reasonably priced. Alas, the servers tend to be rude and are not hospitable to...More
