Although they are always busy, and service tends to be a little slow as a result, the food is always very good, and the servers very polite. If they weren't as good, then they wouldn't be as busy. Sometimes you have to wait for the good stuff!

The food is excellent here, but a bit on the expensive side. 4 people with tip, $156.00 without alcohol +tip 20.00 = $176.00. The service is very good, however, the atmosphere truly lacks... it is VERY noisy and not a restaurant I would come back to; indeed, this was a comeback attempt from another noisy evening, and for a fun...

Food is always great but best to make a reservation as they get crowded most nights. I have never been disappointed and I usually get steak or fish. They make a side dish of this gourmet Mac and cheese that is killer! They say it's Mac and cheese for adults! You can have drinks at the bar while you wait... More

Service is excellent, the menu is ample and fresh, and the atmosphere is great for a quiet night or date. We especially love the fresh made veggie burger.

We were seated by a friendly hostess. Our food was slow in coming, and arrived at different times. Some of our food arrived at a temperture too cold to enjoy. The place is too loud.

In general the service is great, but it slips from time to time. And they are one of the few restaurants in the area that know how to make french fries.

Food is good, nothing remarkable, restaurant very crowded and busy at lunch. They do not take reservations for larger parties, so good luck if you have a group. Wait staff is decent.

Ate here while staying at the nearby Hyatt Place. I had the crab cakes my husband had a grilled chicken sandwich and my 2 year old had chicken fingers. We also had the spinach dip as appetizer. Everything was fantastic. The crab cake was almost 100% real crab fresh and tasty and huge! You get 2 with side of choice.... More

First time at J Alexander's in Plantation. The staff is kind of ignorant and nonchalant. We had to wait a very, very long time for our table. However - when we finally got to sit down at the table and enjoy our food I must say that the ribs are to die for. But I do prefer J Alexander's in... More
