Alexander’s Restaurant: 5 Menu Items We Can’t Wait to Try

Planning Your Vacation

Originally opened in 1977, Alexander’s Restaurant has been mainstay of the Hilton Head Island dining scene for decades. We’re thrilled to be able to reintroduce our neighbors and guests to the new Alexander’s Restaurant & Wine Bar, a classic Hilton Head Island restaurant that we’re sure you’re going to fall in love with all over again.

We’ve completely redesigned the space overlooking Palmetto Dunes lagoon and reimagined the seafood-based menu to include locally-sourced produce and seafood. The result is an elegant dining room with well-crafted dishes, creative cocktails and good old-fashioned Southern hospitality.

Whether it’s an old favorite or a new entrée, here are five dishes we can’t wait to try from Alexander’s new menu:

Oysters Alexander’s

The oysters on the half shell at Alexander’s are a seminal favorite and we’ve also added Oysters Alexander’s to the oh-so-appealing appetizer menu. Topped with bacon, horseradish cheddar and crab, it’s a tasty start to your meal and a perfect example of the bold flavors Chef Reinheardt and his team have created.

Palmetto Dunes Pimento Cheese

The perfect starter for your party, this cheesy dip with kick comes served with grilled flatbreads and cornichons.

Shrimp and Grits

What would a trip to the Lowcountry be without shrimp and grits? Alexander’s makes theirs with decadent sausage gravy and fresh golden tomatoes. We locally source the grits from Geechie Boy Mill on Edisto Island, S.C. Heirloom corn is used in the antique gristmills, which preserve the natural oils and flavors of the corn resulting in the most flavorful grits. This delicious twist on a Southern classic will have you coming back to Alexander’s again and again.

Fresh, Local Catch

Alexander's chefs are experts at seafood, and ordering their catch of the day is a brilliant way to experience their culinary creativity and taste the flavors of Hilton Head Island, including local fish such as grouper, flounder, and blue crabs.

Alexander's Wiener Schnitzel

While Alexander's is known for its seafood, we had to include this dish from their Land & Air Entrée menu! An Alexander's tradition, the wiener schnitzel is classically prepared and served on decadent whipped potatoes with a red wine demi-glace, capers, and seasonal vegetables.
