The food and the service were great. I'd eaten there once before when passing through the area so I knew to expect the best;) The only negative for me personally is both times the background music was a bit too loud and conversation was almost impossible. Still, the food, the food....;)

Fabulous from the moment we sat down. Attentive servers, good wine choices, excellent menu, and wonderful atmosphere. Prime rib and steak cooked to perfection. Roasted root vegetables were the best I have ever eaten anywhere. Companion swooned over the chocolate cake.

I have been here more than a few times, and every time I have issues. Last time the prime rib was tough (they replaced it). This time the prime rib was cold, really cold, not even cool, they charged $5 to "upgrade" a potato to a side salad for $5..the lettuce cost more?? They also ran out of a steak... More

This is an excellent restaurant. One to keep coming back to. Atmosphere is warm and cozy. This time we went for lunch. Had the chicken salad which was on ciabatta rosemary bread which was superb with orzo rice salad which is served cold. Someone else had the Turkey Club with the shoe string fries. Bobby our server was excellent, knowledgeable... More

Celebrated our 23rd Anniversary with a night out. Wait for two was long on a Saturday evening, wished there would have been bread and salad as part of your steak dinner. My wife had a rib eye and I had a New York Strip, both were cooked correct and excellent taste. Overall, it was a nice anniversary dinner. For the... More

Warm and inviting atmosphere. Food always great. Don't miss the grilled salmon, a house specialty. Pace of the meal was just a tad fast, but acceptable. Loved the bottle of wine "special".

The Hoover location is consistent in good food quality and service. The staff, across the board, are attentive and sharp. I have never had a bad experience at this location and have dined here in both a huge rush and during less busy times of the day. During Christmas, Mother's Day and major events in the Hoover area, expect a... More

Been here several times and I like the ambience. The food is fresh and they always throw on a few unusual things. It's nice to find an upscale casual dining place today where you can actually hear one another speak. I've never been disappointed with the food (the chicken salad and the green salads are divine) and portions are out... More

Friends in B'ham area for medical appointment. Had a mid-week dinner of sandwiches & fries & desserts. J Alexander's at most locations always a good & safe choice.
