J. Alexander's 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

Decided to go to J. Alexander's for a quick dinner. We sat at the bar and had a few drinks. They have a ver good selection of drinks and the bartender was great. I had the pork tenderloin and smashed potatoes. The meal was very good and the price was just right. The drinks are expensive. I had a dirty... More

Chose couples because I proposed there. Married now 13 years. Singles should not discount. Great food, service, bar, best "chain" restaurant I have been to. Better than the FL ones where they started. If disappointed I pity you.

It is an AVERAGE restaurant. Too DARK for our taste. The food is AVERAGE, but EXPENSIVE. I ate once there, never to return.

I've gone here several times with family and friends. The food is always delicious and the staff friendly. This last time service was pretty slow, but they were busy. The atmosphere is terrific and overall I'd highly recommend it. I eat here most every time I'm back in the KC metro area.

Had the kc strip and it was good, but the mac and cheese stole the show! Wow. I could eat it as an entire next time. Order it you won't regret it. Servers were attentive and friendly. Would repeat again.
