Food was good, service was great but the price was a little excessive. The place is a little too dark for a family with little kids, is more of an adult restaurant, besides they do not have a kids menu

Great food, good atmosphere and professional staff. We tried the Carolina chicken and the smoked seafood dip appetizer and neither disappointed. I definitely recommend.

In Plantation, there are not that many options for up scale restaurants. The food and service are fantastic but the actual facility is tired and has a sour smell. When you walk in you immediately notice the smell, but it disappears when you are seated. New carpeting or a fresh coat of paint can easily solve this problem. The menus... More

This place is consistent in its quality of food. Tries to be high end and has higher prices to match, but not gourmet fare. Like an upscale Friday's with similar quality food and service.

I often have guests from out of town, both business and personal. They mostly stay at the Hyatt Place hotel in the same parking lot as J Alexanders. J Alexanders is my restaurant of choice whenever I have guests - it's impressive, good and consistent.

The food here is good, the staff was friendly and made due our group of eight was comfortable. Fast service and tasty food, but a bit high on the prices for everything. A once in a while visit is nice.

I eat here at least once on trips to Fort Lauderdale. Just like their other properties I always go for the ribs and have yet to be disappointed. Someone needs to persuade me to try something else.
