Great! Nice ambiance!

First time here. Enjoyed it. The atmosphere was nice, the ahi tuna salad was excellent. Nice place to bring out of town guests or for business.

Poor! The manager refused to take our name until every single member of our party had arrived. He told us that it would be at least an hour or more wait once the last member arrived. I have never heard of such a policy. We have been going to this restaurant for years but never again. Called both Shulas and... More

I've been to this J. Alexander's a number of times and have always had great service and good to great food. The vegetables of the day and other specials are generally especially good. However, the burgers, ribs, and steak salad are other personal favorites of mine. They have a particularly large menu, so it will suit a variety of tastes.... More

Delicious food, excellent service. One of my favorite places to eat. My favorite choice is a steak, I've tried different ones and they are all good.

Well this J Alexander's exceeded our expectations! From the minute we walked in the door and seated by our hostess within minutes... More

celebrated my sister's birthday today, at this restaurant….i've been here tons of times (it's my sister's favorite)….it's way over-priced for what they provide….ordered the prime rib ($27) medium rare….arrived fat and sassy at "medium"….the horseradish sauce had no "horseradish", that i could taste….asked for the "house red", and, was brought an $11.00 "quarter glass" of cabernet sauvignon….note to the restaurant….you're...

This is a little more up-scale, menu items are more expensive and ala carte - but I highly recommend the Prime Rib - thick, juicy, perfectly cooked, not too fatty (just right) and the flavor is out of this world. Excellent atmosphere and outstanding service.

Tried to place a to go order over the phone and they wouldn't accept orders placed over the phone, so went into the restaurant to place order for a piece of carrot cake. Menu said cake was served warm. The cake was served straight from the refrigerator. I asked for utensils and the bartender said they didn't have utensils for... More

I took my wife out to eat on February 13th for and early Valentine's day dinner. We arrived at 5:30 pm and the place was already packed! There was a 85 minute wait for a table. Hey it's Valentine's day weekend what would you expect. We grabbed a glass of wine and stood by the bar. Within 10 minutes two... More
