Had dinner for seven. We had no reservations. We were seated promptly and the atmosphere was quiet so we could talk and listen. All meals were excellent and the service was superb. We originally were going to another restaurant (Champs) but it was to noisy to talk.

Every time I'm in the area, I visit this restaurant. I'm travelling a lot all over the world, but this place is one of my favourite's. Almost always crowded, you should call them before going - there's no reservation, but they'll put you on the list. The stake with mac&cheese is probably the best I've ever had and the burgers...

The food and service is fantastic. The burgers are the best we've ever had. They grind the beef fresh every hour or so. The Alex salad is amazing too with what I'm sure can't be a healthy Ranch dressing. You will have a hard time running low on your beverage as they keep close tabs on you.

I am a big fan of J. Alexander’s as the food and service are consistently good. To me, they serve the best French Dip sandwich I have ever had and it is the perfect meal with a side of fries (very thin shoe string fries). My wife seems to get the prime rib nearly every time, and it is truly... More

Had a business dinner at J Alexander's a few nights ago and had a very good experience. The food was very good, the service was excellent and we were able to have a productive business discussion. I have eaten here before and the Scottish Salmon is one of my favorites. The server was sensitive, just attentive enough to meet our... More

J Alexanders has consistent all-around quality! From their service to their food you know it will be a good experience. A little pricey but just knowing you will leave there happy more than makes up for it. We are due for another visit.

I have eaten here several times as its located near a large theater near us. The food has never let us down the atmosphere is great. I always tend to go for the steak's as they are always cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. Not cheap but not to crazy priced either.
