Third time I've been to this restaurant and the food is wonderful!!! We called ahead and got in within 10min on a Saturday night at 7:30, 2 people with Appetizers both ordering steaks and 2 cocktails was 110$ not an everyday restaurant but when in the area you must treat yourself to this place.

I have eaten here many times and the food is consistently good. The prices are a bit high, but the service is always excellent. And they know how to cook a steak perfectly. They also always have a good and varied choice of vegetables. I had something they called " sautéed corn" last night and it was great. Also, most... More

J Alexander’s was very busy during both times I visited for dinner. After I put my name in with the hostess, I got a pager and headed for the bar. I highly recommend doing this while waiting. Get a glass of good wine or craft beer and watch the people. It could take as long as an hour to get... More

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
