One downside is that they've had meals / appetizers on their menu that we loved, but are no longer being offered. They still have great food choices, and we still go there regularly.

I was quite disappointed in this restaurant. It looked nice and the waiter was very friendly and helpful. We ordered a spinich queso dip that tasted great, but the chips were dripping in grease. I ordered the filet kabob but was brought two filet medallions that were over-cooked and dry. The vegetables were horrible. The seasoning on them was sweet... More

This one is no exception. The gilet was cooked perfect and beefsteak tomatoes were the featured side. Leave room for carrot cake for... More

It is always a great experience. Sometimes you have to wait a while. I wish they took reservations. We love the Hawaiian ribeye for dinner and the chicken salad sandwich for lunch.

Have eaten just about everything on the menu... It's all good ! Love the open kitchen, no hiding problems or Kitchen Nightmares here. The Uptown Old Fashion is a great signature drink.

Little pricey but good every time so far. My new out of town fav. Always good and classy. The shrimp tacos were great and not too expensive for a restaurant of this quality. Gave us an etch a sketch to play with while there. Two adults had a really great meal, time, and impression. Getting check back was a little... More

Once again, with many choices available, we decided on J. Alexander's (Redlands Grill) for dinner with friends. The food is always consistent, and always good. Great service and friendly staff round out the experience.
