I used to love this place and frequent it often. I hadn't been in a couple of years because my husband isn't a big fan, but I craved the Alex's salad. I was so disappointed. I wanted the chopped greens, cucumbers, tomato and dressing perfectly mixed. Not only did this salad look half the size, but it was not chopped... More

Love this place always my go to for steak. Great service , great food and a reasonable price are what make it great. The Alex salad is one of the best green salads I've ever head. The nyo Mac and cheese is a must try. They don't offer reservations so if you don't want to wait get there by 5:30... More

It's just the best all around. Service, food and atmosphere. I love that they will stuff the olives with blue cheese. Salads or steaks you can't go wrong. One wish...reservations Oh did I mention the carrot cake...do it!

I love going to J Alexanders. Great food, great atmosphere at a good price! One of the best things about this resteraunt was the no corkage fee for bringing in your own wine. They now allow you to have the first one free (thank you-don't take that away please!) but charge for additional.I understand why (too many people took advantage... More

I remember when this opened at 115th & Metcalf. Not much around it at that time. Food portions were huge, included salad and croissants. Over time, that changed. Croissants no longer exist. Portions smaller though still plenty large. Quality is top-notch. I hadn't been for a few years, and last visits left me unhappy. Most recent visit (NYE) reminded me... More

Had a late dinner here with clients after a flight from half way across the country then an hour's drive. It was tough to stand around and wait for a table since they do not take reservations. Ugh. Once we got our table, we had a very nice server and had a wonderful dilemma of trying to decide what to... More

The weekend before Christmas....thank goodness they take call ahead seating. My friend called at 5:15 for a 6:30 table for two. When we arrived at 6:15, we only had to wait until 6:45 to be seated in a beautiful booth. I say only because there were folks willing to wait 2 hours to be seated there. I love this restaurant...

We visited this restaurant for drinks and appetizers a couple of weeks ago. The staff was very good, presentation very nice. The food itself was boring, unfortunately: spinach dip and calamari is a bit dated. The drink was ok. A couple of waiters/waitresses were not very patient in getting around our small bar group but otherwise the setting was perfect.

I ordered the soup and salad. The chicken soup was good but needed more chicken and fewer mushrooms. The Caesar salad was small but good. My husband had the prime rib served with a mountain of mashed potatoes. He liked the prime rib but the mashed potatoes were very dry. Wait staff was polite and friendly.
