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.

This is one of my favorite spots in the Overland Park area. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is very nice and welcoming. The service is of the highest quality. They check on you often without feeling like they are on you every second. Prices are probably above average but worth it for a good business lunch or a... More

we are a frequent diner at J Alexanders her family enjoys their steaks, fish and especially the lobster mac and cheese. the meal is always so filling we never have room to try their dessert. I'm sure it's equally good to the entrees and salads. You can never go wrong at J Alexanders.

When we wish to entertain clients or friends or have a birthday dinner, we frequently choose J. Alexander! It's a friendly bistro atmosphere with more noise than I care for but in line with the style today. Their steaks are excellent and prepared perfectly. We love their Carrot Cake, Chicken strips, and French fries, which are thin and crispy. Service... More

It was very busy so we sat at the bar and had a glass of wine. The prime rib was spectacular! Its been a long time since I've found a place that makes great prime rib and that was it. We will definatly be back.

Never had a bad meal at this place. I absolutely love the Prime Rib Sandwich (get the shaved beef). It is Magnificent. You definitely have to save room and order the Carrot Cake for desert.

I have been to this J Alexander's location probably 15-20 times over the last 8 years or so. Every time I'm in the KC area I make it a point to stay in Overland Park and visit J Alexander's at least once, but I always end up visiting multiple times per trip. I have never had a meal at J... More
