Great food, comfortable seating

Had a very nice dinner here. They don't take reservations but you can call ahead and get your name on the list. I recommend doing that, as this is a very busy restaurant. The service here was friendly and attentive, and the food was delivered in, what I figured to be an appropriate time. The menu... read more

You can go to J. Alexander’s either for lunch or dinner and have a consistent experience. The restaurant is very attractive, dimly lit, with jazz music playing. Alexander’s always feels very sexy and relaxing. And that’s just the ambiance! Anything you pick on the menu, is excellent. If possible, try not to go during peak dinner hours, as the restaurant...

We have visited this place at least once a month for several years. This is the only up scale restaurant in a large suburban area where small restaurants dominate. I love the "city' atmosphere, with mahogany and leather decor. The food never disappoints, and the service is consistently great. Everything that we have had is delicious: ribs, fish tacos, hamburgers,... More

Our family went there today. My wife and I were never a fan of this place and only go because it works well for a family meeting place. We got together today for lunch, five of us. My wife and I had a very good lunch and the other 3 who love the place sent their soups and then there... More

Food was awesome, especially the ribs. I had them some years ago at this restaurant and that's why I came back again and they still were as good as I remembered them. Very tender and juicy, they fall of the bone when you hit the plate with your silverware. Nice atmosphere and good service.
