I absolutely love this restaurant. I try to go as often as possible. I love everything from the romantic atmosphere to the delicious well seasoned food. Sometimes at restaurants you experience fine dining with bad food but not this one. Please try it!

Made dinner reservations for 12 -- were told in advance that we would have to sit at two tables because they couldn't physically move tables together. We had four kids with us and sat them at one table and eight adults sat at the next table. Staff was very accommodating. Food was very good, but not outstanding. However the key... More

Generally this restaurant has over the past few years gone down hill. This past weekend we went with some friends. Our orders were wrong and were quickly taken back. The next attempt our steaks were raw. The third attempt was acceptable but still not what we ordered. The manager comped the dinner and drinks but I would have rather have... More

Cristal took care of my co-worker and me today at lunch, and it was thanks to her excellent service, fantastic attitude, and non-pushy ways that I will return to J Alexander's more frequently now. The food here has always been consistently good, but there are SO MANY lunch choices in Tampa that I found myself not at J Alexander's in... More

I've heard their food is excellent so I figured the burger would be great! Well, Burger King has better burgers. For $15.00 I expected a top notch burger= not...

For many years, we have heard great things about this restaurant. Well today, we were in Tampa and decided to have lunch. The food and service was excellent. A bit noisey but not overwhelming. The place was crowded in what appeared to be a local lunch crowd.

I took several out of town guest here during a convention and they loved it. They compared the Tampa location to the one in Texas. Great menu selection, average price range and fast service. The only down side is the unappealing window view surrounding the reataurant.

We had lunch at J Alexander's and had a real good time! It has an upscale setting and bit pricey, definitely worth it. I had the Cypress Salad (Chopped crispy chicken tenders, pecans, avocado, tomatoes, bacon, cheese, croutons and ranch dressing) which was $15. My friend had the French Dip sandwich (Sliced Prime Rib, baguette and horseradish) which was $20.... More
