Great birthday lunch

Had lunch with my husband and parents on 2/6. Wonderful service and great food. A few of us had specific requests with our meals and they were met and exceeded! And of course we finished our meal with the carrot cake. There is not a better carrot cake in town!

The atmosphere is amazing, the staff is friendly and inviting. The food is to die for. Everyone made you feel welcome. The water glass was never empty. The selections on the menu made it hard to deicide what to choose. I have been there several times, and I will go again.

Great food. From salad to dessert. Amazing steaks, and delicious sides. Great for a nice dinner, a special occasion, or just when you're feeling a steak.

One my wife's favorite restaurants, J. Alexander's always comes through. The Rattlesnake Pasta, her favorite, was deliciously spicey, and not a disappointment. The baby back ribs are our granddaughter's choice, and I love to explore the array of choices. The Carrot Cake is luscious, and the sweetly tart Key Lime Pie makes you think you must be in Florida.

J Alexander's always exceeds your expectations. The service is fantastic and friendly. I love the food and is consistently great. Food is hot, good portions and presentation. Amazing desserts especially the key lime pie. Being a regular is very easy to do once you have tried J Alexander's.

Went here with client. Had good steak at the bar with glass of wine. Two "put-off" things. 1) the lunch menu was on table so started to order from that. Server said it was there by mistake. Dinner specials were same as lunch but like 66% more! And 2) first sip of wine was 'carbonated '. So they brought me... More

Had a great late night dinner at this location with business associates. We had bbq at another location the night before so tried other options at this place. Rattle snake pasta is excellent and way filling. Salmon was mild and delicious. Fried chicken was very good. You have to try carrot cake for dessert ! Service was great and hostess... More
