We had a our family holiday dinner in the basement. The waitress was wonderful. The food was good, but could have used more flavor. We were in the basement with another party who had two drunk guys. It made for a loud dinner and hard to hear our own family. The waitresses did her best to keep them inline. It... More

Eaten here many a time over the past few years, and I can't recall ever having a bad meal or poor service. Staff has always been friendly, portions are good sized, and it's a great atmosphere. From a family meal, to drinks with friends, or a birthday gathering - Raapers is definitely ranked high in my book!

Food was good, even though I received something other than what I ordered. I was too hungry to care. The drinks were good, too. The waitress was attentive.

This is a must stop if your in the Alexandria area. Their menu is huge, but if your into burgers they have an incredible selection. If you get there at happy hour they have incredible specials they run everyday.

Our entire family went here after a high school football game in Alexandria and found the food was nothing more than mediocre, but our server was very nice and professional. We mostly had burgers and salads, and there was simply nothing that stood out with any of them. I do recommend going here and I'd go again myself, but don't... More

Raapers is a great place to find those items on the menu that remind you of your hometown! Hearty and plenty of food on the plate. May not have the artistic look of some fancier places when the food arrives at the table, but man does it taste good and reminds me of the food mama used to make.

Slow service. Waited to be seated; then had to remind them we were on the patio. A waitress took us to the patio; when we went inside and reminded them, they said they did not know we were there.

Really innovative menu for a bar. We all enjoyed our meals and really loved the large curled fries. I would avoid the salad bar as the bagged lettuce looked old and selections were minimal. Extensive Beer menu. The service as good. There may not be air conditioning and It was very hot and uncomfortable.
