The prime rib was amazing. It was rare per my order. It was moist, flavorful and the beefsteak tomatoes complimented it well. The grilled artichokes were delicious, but the size was kinda small. The warm carrot dessert was the best in Tampa.

I am not familiar with the Tampa area and drove by the popular chain of J Alexander's. This one was little more dated then others. The menu was the same and still good. I got the rotisserie chicken with vegetables and it was good.

My wife and I along with another couple made a reservation last Sat nite to celebrate the ladies birthdays. Several of the posted reviews from guests said they felt rushed regarding service.

Our waitress tried to up sell us as soon as she came over. When she realized we were only getting soup and sandwiches she only showed up to deliver the check. The chicken pasta soup was very starchy and served warm instead of hot. Our sandwiches were just ok with a strong oak smell that wasn't appetizing after smelling it... More

When traveling for business, I always make it a point to dine at this location. I love the atmosphere, the food is exceptional and the service impeccable. If you stop, make sure to sample the chips and salsa (special recipe), the fish tacos and the pork tenderloin it's amazing!

Nowhere else can you find a better roasted artichoke, but who else has them on their menu...just here as far as I know. We love the filet mignon here, the atmosphere, and the roasted artichokes (started as a special, and pleased us to no end that they became a regular menu item). My husband says they have the best fried... More

Had an excellent salad with cornbread croutons! The salad was piled high and the the chicken was very tender. The carrot cake was incredible, and I'm not a fan of carrot cake. Warm with melted icing dripping down the sides. Was big enough to share!

We chose J. Alexander's to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere manages to be elegant and chic while imparting a casual vibe. Dress up or come business casual; either way you fit in. Waiters/Waitresses are friendly & attentive. We were seated immediately with 15 mins before our reservation. Ah, the food! The filet mignon is superb - seared well and perfectly... More
