Visited just one time. The Chicken Marsala was good, but more in line with Chef Boyardee texture and flavor. My friends tell me I should go back and try something else on the menu. They stay pretty busy on weekends. The locals seem to like it quite well. I was expecting authentic Italian recipe menu and flavors and left disappointed

Went with a group of maybe 6 people on a Wednesday night. I love Greek food and I was very excited since Greek isn't easy to find. The menu was typical popular Greek choices. I had a gyro and thought it was very tasty. The inside is decorated very bare and simple. The biggest issue was we all wanted a... More

We enjoyed going to Alexander's. The food was delicious. My husband really enjoyed the lasagna and my salad was wonderful. The wait staff were very personable.

A friend took me here for dinner one day. I never knew this restaurant existed before. Although I was unimpressed with the decor, the food was amazing. Obviously visited by regulars, the waitstaff greeted most people on a first name basis. This a family run restaurant which serves amazing food.

In town for business and Alexander's was recommended. Wife ordered Greek salad; I had Gyro. Major disappointment on all fronts. While edible, I ended up with both plates as wife felt her salad was nothing more than an average side salad, rather than the full meal experience of a typical Greek salad. She ordered the rice pudding and coffee, hoping... More

The food here is very good and the prices are reasonable. Our favorites are the Grill and Chill Pasta and Grilled Chicken Salad and I love the Roast Greek Half a Chicken with Greek Green Beans and Twice Baked Potatoes.

We thoroughly enjoy stopping at Alexander's when we are shopping and touring Old Town Petersburg. My favorite dish is their Grilled and Chilled which is a bed of delicious pasta salad and greens topped with tasty grilled chicken. Add the feta cheese which compliments the pasta and chicken combination beautifully. Served with a side of their homemade Greek dressing is... More
