Nice Pace, Good Food

Had a great dinner here with my family. Probably had the best crab cakes I have ever had. Everyone was happy with their dinners, even the kids. Nice looking place, good wait staff, nice sections on menu. Noise level is high, which was the only negative.

food was REALLY good. Came with a group for birthday celebration and all the entrees looked wonderful. Pricey but seems you do get what you pay for. Lots of beer/wine/spirits to chose from. Service was just fair- would have expected better from a place like this (drinks sat empty before refilled, 1 order of soup came much later than the... More

I always love this place. We enjoy the ambience. The food is always good. The service is phenomenal. I like frequenting the restaurant for business and meals with friends. Definitely call to get your name on the list before you go.

I have never been disappointed at J. Alexander's. On this particular trip, I had dinner with two other family members. Some of my favorite items on the J. Alexander's menu: Alex's Salad, prime rib, fish or shrimp tacos, beef filet, loaded baked potato, frites, and Mexico City spinach con queso,

I have eaten here many times for lunch and dinner. The amosphere, service and food are great here. Only recommendation is to plan ahead and think about reservations. This place is always busy for lunch and dinner.

Excellent for special dinners, especially if you are a fan of steak. It also has good appetizers, a nice wine list and great wait staff. It is expensive, but is worth the price for a really nice dinner.

I had the Steak Madeira the other night as it was one of the "specials". Wow, the steak was so tender it just melted in your mouth. Also ordered the Burgundy Mushrooms and yum, yum! I changed out the starch on the list for smashed potatoes and again, they were just right. To top it all off, I had the... More

During my visit to Overland Park, Kansas, I visited this restaurant twice! The place fills up quickly for lunch and I suggest that you reach there by 11:30am for lunch, especially if you are taking a client with you. The Spinach Con Queso is fabulous and a must have for starters. Being a vegetarian, I tried the veggie burger which... More

I went to J Alexander's tonight with a friend at his suggestion, and we both had terrific meals. I had the KC strip with mac & cheese, and he had the filet mignon special. We split the fire seared artichoke, which we both thought was outstanding. This is a great place for business dinners, families, just about anyone. The service... More
