What has happened to Alee's restaurant in utica? It used to be a great place for food, drinks, and great atmosphere. Now the entire menu has changed and not for the better. Change in management? Change in ownership? What happened?

Probably losing too much money, not charging enough for what they were serving. GIANT Prime Rib for less than 20 bucks??

Yea, the cook opened his own restaurant and the owners fired all the staff that was friends with him

Well, I did go there tonight and it was one of the best local meals I have had in a while. Che cam out and visited us and the beer prices were awesome, $1 UC (let's not start this again) and $2 bottles of whatever they have. Nobody's doing that. The Italian dressing is made from high quality stuff and the flavor was great. The meals were just superb. Waitstaff was excellent and friendly from start to finish. Zero complaints and I'll return.

I went to Alee's for dinner tonight and the food and service was excellent as always. Joanne- I have a feeling your the type of customer who is impossible to please and you probally harass the waitstaff, and make everyone there miserable. Please don't go back!!! Your doing them a favor. They don't need Customers like you!! Keep up the good work Alee's!! I'll be back

Well, we went back to Alee's last week and it's like somebody threw the sh*t switch! The service was horrendous, the staff was unfriendly and disinterested and the food was just OK like it was thrown together. Has there been a change in ownership/management there? As it is now it's not worth the time or expense to go there. Too bad.

They were short-staffed for the holiday rush. Go back soon. I'm sure it'll be back up to par :) they're good folks over there :)

Not a good time to be short staffed. Wouldn't you make sure you had enough help for the holiday season?

Are you sure that the owner didn't tell his staff to tell you to get the f*ck out. No one wants to wait on a nasty b*tch like you. Maybe you are on their list of who can't go there.

Are you one of the many staff memebers that the owner has fired for being a drunk or stealing from him? I know the owners and they are nice people. It's a shame that people have to bad mouth them because they are angry that they no longer work there.

Nice assumption but no, I am none of what you imply. I am a paying customer as I said I was. I don't really care who you know or how 'nice' the owners are you can go f*ck yourself if you can't believe what I said. I am telling it like it was.
