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

This has been a favorite restaurant for our family for many years. My wife and I went there for lunch last week. The menu has so many great options that it makes it difficult sometimes; "Do I get what I got last time that was fabulous or or try something new which might become the favorite?" I ordered something new,... More

I've been to JAlexanders several times and I can honestly say it is one of the best places to eat in KC. The filet is amazing and you thought you didn't like carrot cake...you HAVE to try theirs. A huge piece, warm with warm icing it melts in your mouth. If it's not right, they will make it right...that has... More

We were looking for an upscale restaurant for drinks and light fare one evening while vacationing in the area and enjoyed our experience so much that we returned the following evening. The food far exceeded our expectations. Dishes were interesting, delightful, and made from scratch on the premises. The menu changes but we especially enjoyed the mixed grilled vegetables and...
