Alexander's is located in downtown Roanoke, Va, near the historic city market with museums, shopping, and other attractions. I've never had a bad meal there. The staff does an excellent job making your dining experience satisfying. Do plan for a leisurely meal however.

Yes, please let us know in advance. There would be a supplemental charge of $3.75 per person at your table for plating and serving your cake. Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
