Always Delicious Prime Rib

The Prime Rib is excellent; the smashed potatoes are divine. I've been eating at J. Alexander's since they opened, and have never had anything that wasn't either really good, or excellent.

This place is located in front of the Galleria and my group stopped for lunch. Pretty upscale. Service was super and menu is American a Grill, but very varied. I had the shrimp tacos...awesome. My associates had a huge chicken Ceasar salad, the other had grilled chicken. Portions were huge and very tasty...highly recommend. Terrific food and service!

I have been eating at J Alexander's Restaurant for many years. I have never been disappointed in the food, service or atmosphere. I can always count on generous servings, attentive service, cold drinks and hot food. The salads are some of the best in the city. The bar has a nice, quiet, conversational vibe.

Went for dinner with my wife. We enjoyed the very friendly and calm atmosphere. Excellent service and the food was perfect. One of the best places to have a romantic dinner in the Hoover/Birmingham area.

I was very pleased from start to finish. The service was very good and the food was very good as well. I had the Maui Steak and it was very good. The deviled eggs appetizer was very good as well.

Parking lot full on a Tuesday night but we were seated in a requested booth immediately and enjoyed martinis with delicious cold sidebars. Bar service: excellent. Not starving, we ordered a flat bread appetizer and a Faucon salad, a favorite. They now make their own flatbread dough: thin and crispy and a HUGE portion. The salad is a mix of... More

Warm, cozy restaurant. Lots of menu choices for main course. The salmon was perfectly cooked and delicious. The mashed potatoes looked like a mountain! Beautiful presentation. The broccoli was cooked perfectly,too. Little crunchy but soft and seasoned. A very buyer friendly wine list. We shared a bottle of Belle Gloss. For dessert, I chose an eggnog martini. Delicious!
