The best ribs in KC! Great atmosphere and terrific service. Don't miss it and it's close to everything.

We absolutely love eating here! We eat here at least every couple months. By the time we finish sharing an Alex Salad & the Mac & Cheese (mmmmm!!), we are too full to eat an entree! The top-shelf Long Island iced teas are to die for (be careful - 2 are just right - 3 will give you a DUI!).... More

We look forward to eating here every time we come to KC! Love the grilled artichokes & calamari for appetizers. I always get the filet with a perfect medium rare cook. Tell them to hold the bernaise, the quality of the steak is so good you don't need to cover it up with a sauce. The mac & cheese side... More

This restaurant had been the place to go to whenever we want a good steak. It is expensive but the prime rib had always come out perfect for me, juicy and tender. Their salad was also good. They have this corn bread crouton which is better than the regular one.

The food and service are always very good to excellent. The menu is broad with steaks, salads, sandwiches and other different items. They always have something on the menu which is very different, such as the macaroni and cheese. The wine menu is ok. The atmosphere is always excellent.

I visit Overland Park once a year for several days at a time but just discovered this restaurant a couple of years ago. I sure wish I had tried it long before that. It's a great place to get together with family and friends and enjoy great food, service and wine. I have only tried the steak although there are... More

The general impression of the interior of the restaurant is good, I just dislike the artificial darkness that so many restaurants find alluring. When I eat I like to see both my food and my companions. The service was very good, we asked to change the sides in almost all we ordered and it was done with a smile and... More

I finally decided to try J. Alexanders based on the other Tripadvisor reviews, and I should have done it a long time ago. It was definitely one of the best restaurant experiences I've had anywhere in the KC area. The building isn't much to look at on the outside, but the dining room was an elegant atmosphere of contemporary meets... More
