When the president of our organization reserved a table she told them 8-10. The woman said "I'll just set you up with the room for 15". Only 4 ended up coming because of the weather or whatever. Not my fault though. The 4 people present were ordering food and drinks. I think the chef/owner may have been mad the party was smaller than planned, but I still don't think they should have ever questioned my order. Or maybe it is and I am just not understanding resturant etiquette. I even told the waitress she would get a generous tip. The place was pretty empty. They should've been happy we were there. When I did end up getting my food it was DELICIOUS. I can't fault them there and the waitresses were very embarassed at having to come and tell me the chef wouldn't make my dinner (appetizer).


This is my thought... when you go to a restaurant you are going for the experience and food. Instead of dictating how it should be why don't you go with the flow, respect the owners wishes, and maybe you will be surprised. It makes no sense to take up a whole area... if the place was empty you could have gone to a smaller table. If the waitress was expecting 10 people and only 4 showed and then you only wanted an appetizer... I would have been upset too. Her/his tips all depends on the size of the bill. So if the food was great, try it again. I'm in the business and I can see both sides. But maybe next time you should just try it there way???? Just my opinion.

Ok that about is the end of this for me. Let me set you all straight. I did not make that comment about Gerry. I have enough to worry about rather than sitting on topix reading and writing this garbage. This blog should be used for good but the only thing it does is hurt people and their businesses. I heard that people think that I said that but it is not true. There are forty five hundred more people in Little Falls. I am not the only one who lives in Little Falls. So before you go making assumptions and try to tarnish my name make sure you know what you are talking about. Oh yeah and one more thing since you have taken it upon yourself to call me a JERK for no reason why don't you post your name on here so everyone knows who you are. I don't have to hide behind the computer all day. You know where I am located so if you want to have a talk with me feel free to do so.

He is nothing more than a sniveling coward, who doesnt have the balls to meet you,, I wouldnt even bother with that big a hole anymore, he has nothing in his life, and nothing better to do than write crap on this system, maybe he will have a serious attack of some sort and end up out of commission for a long time

Why would there be a list of people who can't go there? That makes no sense. Wouldn't you want to make any customer feel as if they belong no matter how hard they are to wait on. And if this is the case why doesn't the owner tell the customer himself?
if you knew how to run a restaurant, you wouldn't be saying this. so i suggest you stop commenting about how to run a restaurant if you obviously have no knowledge of the topic. thanks.

My husband and I went to Alee's on Tuesday, 3/16. We were asked as soon as we walked in if we were attending the show at the Stanley that night (which we were). They wanted to make sure that we were out in time for the show.

The food was out of this world. I had the Chicken & Mushrooms and my husband had the 24 oz. Delmonico steak (for less than $20!!). Everything was cooked to perfection.

The wait staff was great too. Every one of them was hospitable and willing to bend over backwards to take care of the customers, whether they were their customer or not. They are probably the best waiters and waitresses that we have ever had when dining out. We will definitely go back there again and again.

I have been there a few times and have never had a bad meal. This was the first time my husband has gone there and he was very impressed.

Rocky, I went to a party in the back room there a few months ago and they sent out an entire tray of very RAW chicken francaise, you could take the shell off the outside of the chicken and see that it was not even cooked on the outside letalone the inside, most of the people at the party ate it and i was about to take a bite when i noticed it was totally raw, they are going to kill somebody, i used to like their food as well, but this is appauling.

I went to Alee's restaurant today for their TGIF lunch buffet and it was excellent. All the dishes were very tasty and it was a great hot lunch on a cold and chilly day. Check it out!

Alees is crazy.anyone ever see the wait staff run around like they are clueless on Saturday nights. It is very amusing. They act like it is their first time ever serving. The owner, whom is also the chef freaks out every Saturday night. If you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen. lol. He is always so mean and nasty when it comes to the customers. He is always telling his staff to tell them to get the f*ck out. You can hear everything that is said in the kitchen. The wait staff comes out and they are so fake to the customers. I vow never to go there again and promise to pass on the word.
