We had oysters on the senior menu and they were very good. The atmosphere was somewhat lacking but we wouldn’t hold that against them.

We go to the ocean all the time. We usually eat out. Alec's has great food. Real comfort food. We had the lasagna and the fried chicken bowl. We were told everything is home made there - except the lasagna. The lasagna was still good....More

We weren’t thrilled with the clam chowder. If you like it thick enough to stand a spoon up you will love it. The fries were good. Fish just ok. The staff were nice and attentive. We appreciated the service and friendly jokes.

Ordered the king salmon for $19 and the salmon was very good. It came with a mushy broccoli zucchini vegetable and a tasteless brown rice with mushrooms, neither of which was good. Too bad they cant give good sides with the main dish.

We ordered the pork chop with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Food was hot and tasty. Broccoli and squash were perfectly cooked. Service was a bit slow but not unacceptable.

We were here celebrating an 85th birthday. There were 6 of us and we had some dietary restrictions in the group. A lot of fried seafood in Ocean Shores so we bounced around a couple of places and found Alec's. About 15 minute wait on...More
