Alexander's is within walking distance of the Marriott and Hilton resort and most homes and villas in Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove. The eclectic menu features seafood specialties, hand trimmed steaks, lamb, creative salads and housemade desserts. The professional wait staff can help you choose from over 100 hand selected wines that best compliment each entreé. The restaurant has four areas of dining: An enclosed veranda that overlooks a picturesque lagoon, the wine bar, the main dining room that is home to vintage Harley Davidsons and small private dining room.

Frommer's Review

One of the most visible independent restaurants (in other words, not associated with a hotel) on Hilton Head lies in a gray-stained, wood-sided building just inside the main entrance into Palmetto Dunes. The decor includes Oriental carpets, big-windowed views over the salt marshes, wicker furniture, and an incongruous -- some say startling -- collection of vintage Harley-Davidson motorcycles, none with more than 1,000 miles on them, dating from 1946, 1948, 1966, and 1993, respectively. Each is artfully displayed as a work of sculpture and as a catalyst to dialogues. Powerful flavors and a forthright approach to food are the rules of the kitchen. The chefs don't allow a lot of innovation on their menu -- you've had all these dishes before -- but fine ingredients are used, and each dish is prepared with discretion and restraint. Try the oysters Savannah or the bacon-wrapped shrimp, and most definitely have a bowl of Low Country seafood chowder. Guaranteed to set you salivating are the salmon Oscar and the bluefin crab cakes. Steak, duck, rack of lamb, and pork -- all in familiar versions -- round out the menu
