J Alexander's has the best service of most restaurants I frequent. The food is always excellent. I had the French dip and my children each had prime rib. Everything was delicious and made fresh. Love the Alex salad. To the reviewer below, they still have the chicken salad sandwich at the Franklin TN location, I had it yesterday!

They made a big mistake when they changed their menu and removed the open face Chicken salad sandwich with Orzo. That was a fave of so many people!

A little pricey with everything ala carte, but an excellent meal served in a wonderful atmosphere. I've found the same true in their Livonia, West Bloomfield and Troy locations. Highly recommend!

I have been to J Alexander's two times and both times I was impressed by the quality of the food and the service provided! We had been to another well known restaurant with comparable prices a few days earlier and found J Alexander's to be far superior.

Food arrived hot and prepared to order. Cocktails were generous. There did seem to be quite a bit of "talking noise". If you were looking for a quiet dinner this may not be the place for you.

I've eaten here a few times. Once, for lunch and once for dinner. Both times were pleasant experiences with good service and good food. Wait staff is quite personable as well.

I had a business dinner in the middle of the week. The restaurant was full so easy to understand it is a popular place. Ordered the prime rib as that is supposed to be their specialty and loved it. Friendly staff and great service.

The Remoulade sauce served with this $14 burger was excellent and worth the money. service was good and the decor was very nice for a lunch or casual dinner. Located in the tony Somerset mall this is a fun place to eat and shop.
