Really good

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

This is a good restaurant. I have been here many times and on occasion there have been problems with the food, but overall it has been very good. The décor is nice somewhat masculine - with that steakhouse look. A good place for a business lunch, a celebration or just dinner out. I prefer this restaurant on Thursdays, because it's... More

I recently dined here with a girlfriend; it has been years since I have visited a J. Alexanders so I was looking forward to it. I love the darker atmosphere of the place and have always liked their salads. The wait staff was ok, not extremely attentive. The thai chicken salad was very large, with thin strips of chicken, a...

We love this restaurant and visit it while in tampa since the Orlando location closed a few years back. They are changing the name soon but we have been told the food will stay the same. Great service and even better food.

Loved the ambiance, no valet parking since it was raining. Service was great and didn't feel unattended at anytime.

We eat here more than once a month...(mostly because of its convenience to our regular routes). It's consistent and reliable for a good meal, has good atmosphere, and good service. That said, I think they are way overpriced! Prices are high for this type of restaurant and meal...($15 burgers and salads). I'm a salad eater and they don't have any... More

On our way to the airport we stopped for a meal at our first J Alexander's. We were pleasantly surprised by how large and lovely it is. We both ordered the Prime Rib French Dip sandwiches and fries and loved it!

We were in search of some gourmet macaroni and cheese, we found some and it was yummy however the rest of the meal was spectacular. We had the Mexican City Spinach con queso appetizer which was generous in flavor and size and was served with fresh picante and ware chips.. The French dip I ordered contained the most succulent beef... More
