The appetizer of deviled eggs were fabulous, as was the main entree of prime rib. The creme brûlée was delicious, but should be shared. The pomegranate martini was fresh & fruity but was skimpy on the vodka. I would probably order wine next time. Overall excellent meal and will definitely frequent this restaurant.

The service & food bordered on 5 stars I ate there twice & had very good fish dinners.. However the left side of the room was very noisy . The right side is nicer & quieter.

We had salmon, trout and the tenderloin skewers and all were excellent! Our waitperson was friendly, quick and personable.

Had a quick business lunch with some colleagues in between meetings in the local area. Was thrilled that the service was fast, and the food was good too. We all had the Cheeseburger... Very good but BIG! Prices were reasonable and good variety of menu items without being overwhelming.

All around great! Very good service, Great Atmosphere, Great Food, All around great. Had a reservation for 8 and were seated promptly on arrival. This is an upscale restaurant and it exceeded my expectations. We had the deviled eggs as an appetizer. Sorry Mom, but these were the absolute best I have ever had. Ordered filet medium rare and it... More

I've just finished a meal at J. Alexander's and have to say I'm very impressed. Myself and 11 colleagues marched inside and asked for a table for 12 at 6:30pm on a Wednesday and we're say right away. The place wasn't quiet either, the staff were happy to help and as we didn't kind being split into 3 groups of... More

We were exhausted, looking for something to eat after a long drive. J Alexander’s was conveniently located right off the Interstate. The restaurant was crowded, very lively and very NOISY. The food was great! The Old Fashioned Cheeseburger with a Loaded Baked Potato side were good quality and attractively presented. The Chicken Milanese entree, featuring a crumb-coated cutlet, sautéed and... More

Centrally located for travelers on I-294 and for people in the North and Northwest suburbs of Chicago. Many choices on the menu and the food was good. Service was aslo good. Very noisy during the lunch hour.

I've been to J. Alexander's a few times now, owing to its proximity to my office. Each time I've felt that the food was adequate -- good for what it was trying to be. In the evenings, the place feels primarily like an after-work bar. A restaurant dinner fits in, but is definitely an afterthought. The food is adequate, but... More
