I'm a fan.

I am a big fan of J. Alexander's. I've eaten at several locations: Troy, Livonia, and Farmington Hills. From the simple....like chicken tenders or a burger, to the more upscale.....Pecan-crusted trout, or Crab Cakes, I've always enjoyed the food at J. Alexanders. We went there for Mother's Day... read more

Perfect atmosphere, great service. Prime rib and anything on the grill is excellent. The prime rib was the best I have ever had and I have had prime rib across the country.

I'd like to say first that the service was very good and attentive. They have a great system where one main server attends each table but there are also front and back waiters that help keep everyone happy. The good stops there. I got the roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and my husband got a sandwich, I forget which one.... More

Went for lunch and had the filet, Mac & Cheese, and carrot cake. YUM, YUM, YUM!!! The filet was very tender (3 of us in the party, all had filet, all were perfect). The Mac & Cheese was the best I have ever had. Finally, the carrot cake.....it is quite a big piece and served warm. I seriously would go... More

You can't make reservations, but call ahead and get a wait number. They'll give you an estimate of when that number will be seated so you can arrive a bit before that time and have a shorter wait. We had the Caesar salad which is the best I ever had hen the incredible carrot cake for desert. In the middle... More

Alexanders never fails to impress with its flavoursome food. From the Calamari starter, the Prime Rib main course and through to the Carrot Cake desert. Delicious. Be prepared to wait though, there's a queue peak time every day of the week. Try it - you not be disappointed!

This was one of the few restaurants, my wife and I have visited in the past five years, that truly delivers on food, service and atmosphere. They have a menu of basic American dishes such as burgers and steaks, chicken and fish. But, the recipes and cooking are well above the standard of the majority of restaurants. The prices we...
