Worth the wait

We called in prior to our arrival as advised by the restaurant but still had to wait at least forty minutes, standing in a crowded entry. The place was packed out with all types of clientele. The open kitchen looked amazing with great smells and a wonderful vibe so waiting seemed worthwhile. And... read more

We got there just before the dinner rush and seated immediately, pleasant greeting at the door and excellent table side service. We took most of our waiter's suggestions who was very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was exceptional. Portions were large and everything fresh - plate settings were creative and attractive. The atmosphere is very in tune with the... More

This is one of the few Plantation restaurants that tries to be upscale. Great drinks and food. Carrot cake dessert to die for.

Large portions, very attentive wait staff, reasonably priced, clean , open dining, although a little noisy. The ribs, salads all very nice. They gave special attention to our eight year old that didn't like the soup that was ordered. They quickly got another dish which pleased a picky little girl.

In well over a 100 visits to the USA, including all 50 states, I have never felt the need to walk out of any restaurant clutching a doggy bag. However, the Carrot Cake here was the best I have ever tasted, light, moist, dream of a frosting and a huge portion after shrimp and Caesar salad. I just had to... More

We went to J Alexanders with my family for dinner. The food is quite good. My Wife and I had hamburgers. It was absolutely one of the best I have had in a very long time. Our Children had a steak filet that he could cut with a butter knife. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the service is very... More

Both times I have been here, the service was simply outstanding. I don't think I've experienced a finer restaurant staff. Also, the food is good, though some items outshine others: chips and spinach queso are awesome, and the carrot cake literally melts in your mouth. It's crazy good. That said, I'm very surprised that the steak burger and the fries... More

We almost never go to this restaurant. But, we have been 3 times lately with guests who absolutely loved the consistent quality of the food, ambiance and service at three different locations! Fort Lauderdale, Plantation and Boca Raton. The only one I found fault with was Boca, where our waitress was snooty and impatient--our guest were from South America and... More
