It's been so many times I've visited this restaurant and every time I go there I notice a better and better customer service and food. People are very friendly and you can feel they all enjoy working there. I was there last night with some of my friends and as always enjoyed it. I loved the early Valentine's day gift, a red rose for every one. You can only get this kind of customer service at Alexander's on the Bay. more

Went to Alexanders on a recent Saturday night. The weather was very nice so we ate on the patio. The bay is less the 50 yards away, so you have a nice view of the water. The staff was very pleasant, and service was excellent. They had a large number of specials,(lobster, crab, fish,lamb) and a nice selection from the menu. The salads were fresh, excellent crab soup and the Mahi was delicious. The desserts are homemade. All in all a very nice meal. more

One of my all time favorite fine dining experiences. Always fresh, always attentive service and by far the most beautiful view you will experience while dining.... more

Great service on a busy Saturday night. Wait staff were very pleasant, food was over the top great, and a view that will excite the romantic in anyone. Try one of there many specials (I had the red snapper, excellent!). Made reservations for another visit next week. Can wait! more

The veiw of the Chesapeake Bay and Bay Bridge is only a part of this ""hidden treasure"", The locals have been keeping this to themselves for years. I brought three of my girlfriends to dinner here a couple weeks ago and it was fantastic! We started with the Oysters Rockafeller and Calamari, with Cosmos! Awesome! Each of us ordered something different, Filet Mignon, Seafood Madagascar, Parmesean Crab encrusted Tuna, Broiled Flounder. The service was impecable, and we really did not want to leave. more

Beautiful scenery and the waitress was wonderful. We were happy that they did not rush us on with our was very relaxing. My daughter's salmon was delicious, the crab soup was very good and their house salad with walnuts and balsamic vinegar was amazing! more

We used our GroupOn coupon at Alexender's with some trepidation. Several previous reviews panned the food, the service and the attitude of the hostess. We were pleasantly surprised by our visit. We called the restaurant to request a reservation, they called us back promptly. We were about 10 minutes late for our reservation due to traffic, but the hostess was very welcoming and pleasant. The waitress was well-trained and, although she spit out the specials (5 or 6 of them) very rapidly, she graciously went back and repeated each. When I ordered the crab cakes, which were not on special, she was enthusiastic about them. My husband ordered the lamb chops, always a trick decision at a sea food house. I also ordered a drink and an appetizer. Both were served promptly, along with excellent rolls and butter. The entrees came promptly after that and were well-prepared and well-presented. Should have resisted dessert, but tried the white chocolate cheesecake with raspberry sauce. It was an expensive night out, but well worth it. We will go back. more

Went here for my Fiancees birthday. The food was absolutely incredible, he had the filet mignon and I had one of the specials--salmon stuffed with crab in a lobster cream sauce. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Service was great, and the view is incredible. We were there around sunset, which is just awesome. more

The service for my wedding at Alexander?s on the Bay last weekend was OUTSTANDING! My guests raved about the great food, the calming ambience, and of course the beautiful scenery. The owner made every accommodation possible to make my family and friends feel at home, as well as any little task that I needed to have done in preparation for the ceremony. Don?t make your final decision based off of the previous reviews. Go and see it for yourself. I am truly delighted and thankful! more

Located right on the beach at the Chesapeake Bay near the Bay Bridge. Nearly every table has a good view. Nice place, recently rebuilt and ready to please. Good food with a seafood emphasis, and server was pleasant and helpful. more

We had the best meal in Virginia Beach. The salmon was excellent. Surprised to read all reviews about bad service as our service was very good. Great view of the bay. more

The food was very good, service great (I like my water kept full...and they did that), and we had a great view of the Bay. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/14/2012

My family and I decided to treat ourselves to a special meal at Alexander's. We have not been there since it was rebuilt after the storm. We had always loved it in the past. We were pleased to find that they had the same great food and wonderful service as always. We had a very nice time! more

Missed my favorite restaurant and SOOO GLAD Alexanders on the Bay is BACK more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/28/2012

I have eaten at Alexander's on a few occasions. Starting with the young men who greet you as you enter the parking lot and park your car, the atmosphere is most friendly. The view of the ocean and Bay-Bridge tunnel at night is spectacular. The Calamari appetizer is one of the best in the area. The main courses all are fresh, tasty and more than ample in amount. I don't eat desserts so can't tell you about that. They have a good selection of wines, some of which are a little pricey, but are excellent in taste. They have a small bar that gets a good ""play"" of regulars. In nice weather, eating outdoors adds a special touch to any evening. more

This is the worst restaurant I have ever had the mistake of patronizing!! I would highly discourage anyone from booking a special event or party here. It is not worth the time, hassle, rudeness, or the exorbitant price tag for a headache. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/15/2012

We got a GroupOn to this restaurant and after reading the reviews, I was seriously nervous to even use it. We arrived and I already was expecting it to be a bad experience. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was very good, service great (I like my water kept full...and they did that), and we had a great view of the Bay. The rolls were dry--only complaint. Oh, and it's super expensive. For 2 of us the bill was $103 prior to GroupOn and I only had one drink and my husband had two beers. more

Gone downhill 6/2/2011

Went there a few nights ago with my wife and was surprised how the overall quality of the place has deteriorated. Our service was very poor (2 waitresses for approximately 15 tables of customers) and my entree which I had ordered there several times in the past and loved it was not at all quality wise what it was on the previous occasions that I had ordered it. I am not a complainer and actually waited a day to write this review so I could be more objective. We will never return to this restaurant again and instead go to a fast food seafood restaurant for 1/10 the cost and enjoy it equally well or more. more
