This is a great restaurant and a nice change from the standard fare - Caribbean and Southern dishes - all well prepared and tasty. Alvin makes a point of visiting every table - a very nice touch.

Been going to Alvin & Friends since they first opened in the old location and the food, service and ambience has only gotten better. Have never had a bad meal in all the times we have been there.
