One of my favorite chain restaurants

I love J. Alexander's! It is one of my favorite chain restaurants--I wish there was one nearer to my home. The service is always fantastic. The drinks are wonderful. The food is very special.

Exceedingly disappointed in the rudeness of the staff. We were staying 'next door' at the Hyatt House and they REFUSED to do a carry out, "We do not do carry out orders". My other half has an Autistic 7 yr old and she wanted me to pick up a lite meal for her while she was in the room and... More

A place I try to visit regularly. The food is always made from scratch & I've never had a steak cooked wrong. The service is top notch & their management staff make sure of it. My friend and I sat at the bar during my last visit & the bartender Scott was very attentive and knowledgeable, as well as friendly.... More

Was a quality meal. I had the Cajun ribeye and it was good. It wasn't too Cajun flavored rather tasted like a well seasoned steak. I would come back here for a meal. Others in the party has a burger, roast chicken, pasta, salad and a filet. They all said it was good.

This is a very nice restaurant with impeccable service and a great menu. My only issue was that they didn't have a printed kids menu, but that's a little thing. We ordered a kids hamburger, a kids grilled chicken and mash, some fish tacos, and a roast chicken. All were well prepared and tasted good. Not the best place for... More

The place tries to act very fancy with the low light and wooden tables but all the food over priced. One beer and a chicken dinner with a Ceasars salad was almost 36 without tip. That's a little crazy. Majority of the chicken was good and juicy but it was spectacular. The waitress was nice and attentive but bc I... More

Food and drinks are always great at J's. This visit the service was above and beyond. I mis-ordered the wrong toppings on my son's burger. The waiter noticed us scraping mayonnaise and mustard off and asked if all was okay. We asked for a new bun and he offers to re do the whole burger! What service!!
