I have had the chance to eat at Alex's restaurant about four times over this past year since I have moved to Poughkeepsie. This includes visits for breakfast and brunch on the weekend as well as lunch during the week. I have enjoyed every visit to Alex's. The menu is, for the most part, familiar fare for meals at this...

Stopped by for brunch after Walkway Over the Hudson. Very cute restaurant. It was a busy Sunday late morning but they had tables so seated right away. Waitress was very friendly and took our order right away. Waited over a half hour for food though and waitress never apologized so does that mean it's their usual thing to wait so... More

I had asked someone for a tip on a good lunch spot in Poughkeepsie. This is conveniently located, and has a nice ambiance. I had a great server named Karen who took fabulous care of me. There is an extensive and diverse menu. I had the chicken grilled wrap and it was delicious. My only warning is to certain you... More

We hiked the Walkway Over the Hudson from Highland to Poughkeepsie for an amazingly yummy breakfast at Alex's! Owner-Alex greeted us and seated us and shared great conversation. Beautiful restaurant with piano bar relaxing music which flowed with the restaurant patrons. Sara our server was a ray of sunshine and helped us decide which breakfast entree to select!

Alex's a great place to have breakfast or a simple lunch and meet people. Friendly, great frontage on Market and Main streets, high ceilings and clean atmosphere. Food is pretty good and prices are fair.

I was staying in Hyde Park but decided to drive down to Poughkeepsie for breakfast. I found this little place through google. Definitely worth the drive. It has old school charm. The staff was very friendly! I ordered the "2 eggs plate". The food was excellent and very well priced. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

After walking the Hudson Walkway my friends and I stopped in for lunch. It's like going back to the 1950's soda shop. You can sit at a charming soda counter or tables with wrought iron bases. The place is CLEAN. We were seated immediately by a friendly hostess. The menu has many choices. I chose the Corned Beef Reuben. It... More

This cut place on the corner of Main Street is well worth a visit. It is really the only thing in town. Great menu choices with tradition American diner food as well as that soda shop feel with milkshakes and egg creams. They have burgers, wraps, salads and of course breakfast. Everything we had was good. I wish I would... More
