Max and cheese is amazing, you can substitute for any side. I never order Mac and cheese at at restaurant but trust me it's great. Filet was cooked perfectly.

Arrived for lunch for a 1:30 reservation and we were immediately seated in a booth, as requested. Although the restaurant was nice inside, it wasn't as nice as I expected for the price range of the eatery (our lunch, including 21% tip, was $118.00). It reminded me basically of your standard mid-range steak house in furnishings and decor. Our order... More

We started off with grilled artichokes. I asked how the artichokes were seasoned, and I was told that steak seasoning was used on them. I never would have expected steak seasoning on artichokes, but they were excellent! I also loved the smoky flavor of the artichokes from being cooked on the grill. Those were the best tasting artichokes I've ever... More

We stopped in for lunch and it was packed (including the parking lot). Sat at the bar, which was also crowded so I figured the place must be good. I don't like spending more than $10 for lunch, and my burger was $13. It was good and the fries were the shoestring kind that I really like, not the steak... More

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.
