I ate lunch at Alex's Restaurant in Poughkeepsie when visiting the Hudson River Valley. The food, service and atmosphere was great and very glad I followed the advice of the lady at the Mid Hudson Valley Heritage Center. I had a turkey club sandwich with split pea soup. It all was very good. I had a great waitress. The staff... More

Food was great! They offer a wide variety of wines and beer. Parking was easy. Service was a bit slow as the place was packed, but worth the wait. Great vibe inside with antique furniture.

The restaurant is clean and has the charm of the original structure of the building. Upholstered benches add a unique touch to the seating. The Reuben sandwich was done exactly right! The meat melted in your mouth. The waitress was more than accommodating. The old school shakes are great touch.

Just found this place on the website and what a pleasant surprise. The food was very good breakfast fare, tasty and large portions, but the service is the star. Coffee refills were constant and with a pleasant and heartfelt smile. I wish I lived closer!

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.

After eating brunch here, I realized that I hadn't reviewed Alex's. I must rectify that. I absolutely love this place. Whether you go for breakfast, brunch, or lunch, you will not be disappointed. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. I've never had a bad meal or experience here. The staff is great. They are very welcoming and attentive. So,... More
