Well, we read the reviews and settled on Alec's. Asked the waiter about the salmon and was told it was farm raised. Asked about the halibut that was in season and he didn't know if it was fresh or frozen. Got the halibut and found it mussey, not much flavor and really disappointing for less than a few blocks from... More

My husband and I had a very enjoyable Easter lunch at Alec's. We were seated promptly and our server was friendly and efficient. I like the fact that there is an extensive senior menu and nobody asks your age. I had the shrimp louie which was huge and good. It was served with excellent clam chowder which was thicker than...

I've been patronizing Alec's for many years. Always dependable food and service. Had a family celebration in their private room.

Husband ordered stroganoff and I was so jealous. Sauce was rich and creamy. Fantastic. My meatloaf was great too, had a slight kick to it.

This restaurant came highly recommended, but I found it very disappointing. We arrived around 5-5:30 for dinner and waited a while to be seated in a nearly empty restaurant. Our server took quite a long time before coming by the table. Eventually she brought drinks we ordered for kids, then quite a while later, our wine. I had to ask... More

Alec's by the sea is nothing fancy, but the food is good and very reasonably priced. The servers are all very polite and work hard to provide quick service even when it is busy,

The broiled seafood platter was a signature dish with generous portions. Only downside was a bit too salty.
