“A Nice Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

It being Monday afternoon the crowd was gone and there were just a handful of people in the restaurant so I cannot speak to the service during busy times. Our waitress was prompt and pleasant. What I can mention is the Ham and Split Pea soup which we were told was "homemade" and the soup-of-the-day for Mondays. Probably one of the best I've eaten through the years. I followed that with their BLT which is such an easy sandwich to make you'd think no one could mess it up. Although some have tried, the chef at Alec's today made a sandwich that rates in my top 10. Fresh sourdough and plenty of thick, not too crispy bacon, made the sandwich a delight. So all in all a perfect place for a quick stop lunch break.

“Great seafood dinner spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

We have eaten here 5 or 6 times over last few years, and have never had a complaint. The staff are always friendly and they are always busy however you only wait a few minutes till they seat you and get your drinks to you. And the food, if you go to the beach you have to have seafood and they do it right some of the best it have ever had. You owe it to yourself to try this awesome restaurant as it is always on our list when we visit.
