As above, chicken, lamb, hummus, all excellent. One hiccup: waiter mistakenly disposed of one leftover plate, even though we had asked to take it home. Although he genuinely apologized, he should have offered to make amends. A similar error at other restaurants resulted in a complementary drink and even a replacement meal to go.

Had such a wonderful evening at Alice's. A member of our party had a dairy allergy and both the server and the kitchen were very accommodating. From the drinks, to the food, to the view, to the service, everything was exquisite! We will definitely be back!

I am so happy to learn that our staff did not dissappoint you or the dairy-free member of your party. That is a level of service is something that we are so proud of. Thank you for your positive review and your future (fingers crossed) future patronage. More

This restaurant has had a bit of a bum rap. We planned to go to lunch and I was apprehensive after reading some of the reviews. We were pleasantly surprised. Wonderful view over the lake, which was blustery the day we visited. The enclosed porch area was a bit chilly as it was windy - wear warm clothes in cold... More

Thank you for your kind review and I am very glad that you tried us and enjoyed your experience. Thank you. I am sorry that you found the porch chilly - with this erratic weather we haven't taken steps to fully winterized yet and we hope when the season officially changes (now) we will have the door panels tightened and...

My husband I went to Alice's for a drink and maybe lunch. We walked in and told hostess we were going to have a drink. She said fine. The bar has 4 bar stools, 2 were taken and too much stuff on the bar to sit down. We asked the bartender if we could sit on the deck and have... More

I am profoundly sorry that there was confusion about getting your request for a table handled. Of course on normal days the bar is not authorized in releasing dining tables to patrons- this must be handled by the hostess station. We clearly made some critical errors. More

Great view from outdoor deck overlooking Lake Hopatcong. Great spot for mid-week lunch on a very nice day. Visited on a Sunday in early Sept and weather and experience was excellent. Food is good - not great - but priced accordingly. Nice find - will definitely return!

Lots of spicy food and not many choices. Ordered a special which was good, but I thought $34.00 was expensive for an entree in a causal restaurant. They redid the porch where we like to sit, but it was full and we had to eat inside. They took the wonderful bar along the railing where you could sit and watch... More

We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit with us. I can't address all that you posted here - except that we clearly failed your expectations. Yes, we did redo the porch and legally we cannot make it bigger. Dining at the bar both upstairs and down is still an option - so i am sorry that this was... More

You get no bang for your buck here. The view is great, but this is not fine dining. We paid $4.50 EA. For 5 oysters from MA. If it was a belon, I could understand. The price is not on the menu so they try to slip one by on you w/these oysters. The cajun crusted Cod is NOT fresh.... More

I am sorry that our quality doesn't live up to your expectations...we offer every customer fresh product made to order every time. Our cod IS fresh...im sorry if something about it made you think it isn't. As for the oysters - they are priced daily according to market which is customary with such items many times....i would have expected that... More

My sister-in-law and two cousins had dinner on the deck at Alice's tonight. The service, atmosphere, and food were impeccable. What else is there to say? The photos say it all.
