I had an occasion to stop by Alibis on a Friday evening and the service and food was good. There were quite a few couples there for dinner and drinks, however as the evening began to go by, there seemed to be a shift to a more seedy crowd.
You're best bet is to get there early, enjoy your dinner, and then find someplace else to go spend the rest of the evening.

This is a simple review of a place we used to go to about once a week. I say used to because they have jacked to prices to the moon! The service has always just sucked at this place, but the burgers have always been great so you just dealt with the complete crap service. Not terribly long ago someone at Alibis decided that they should charge $9.00+ for burgers with chips (fries are extra). Now this is close to going rate in the Carlisle area but Alibis has never had even acceptable service and the atmosphere is loud and dark. Since the major price hike we have only been there once and decided that the new prices with the lack of service and the kind of lousy atmosphere make the "new" Alibis a place we wouldn't recommend. We are OK with paying more, but Alibis isn't worth the new price list.

Braved the snow to hang out with friends last Friday night. Seems I wasn't the only one who drove through the winter storm...
THIS PLACE WAS PACKED!
The band was amazing! 3 very talented musicians kept us entertained for the evening!!!!
Food was good... service was fast and friendly.

We stopped at Alibis last Saturday evening to eat and watch a football game. Several years ago, we ate good food there. But this Saturday evening at 6:30 PM, there were few people and no one was eating. That should have been the first clue, but we stayed to watch the game. They also recently changed their menu to sandwiches and appetizers.
The waitress had a poor attitude. She gave us our menus and asked us if we knew what we wanted immediately. We didn't readily know and she was 'put out' by this. Our food took over an hour to get after we ordered and it was cold. After a reheat, my sandwich was good, but small for the cost. The asparagus was cold and tough. My wife's crab cake sandwich made her sick.
Alibis is surrounded by great restaurants that were very busy and yet they were empty at peak eating times on Saturday night. We will never go back unless the place totally changes.
