I agree that relative to local competition, the food is pricey. However, the food is generally good and appetizing. It is unlikely, nonetheless, that we will return to Alexander's. On our most recent visit, we experienced extremely poor, even rude, service. The service was so...More

I have rarely seem a menu with a higher fat content or such mismatched foods. Cajun shrimp Etouffee with squash and green beans, really? Not a pepper in sight. Desserts that run in the 2000 calorie range and NO espresso to be had.
