Since it's inception, J's has always been a restaurant where very good food and service is the rule, and today the Troy restaurant remains an anchor restaurant of the Somerset Collection North. My only gripe is the new renovation which was introduced several months back. From my perspective, it is rather institutional looking, and not as 'private' as the old... More

Just went in for a quick lunch, soup and salad. The soup was a gumbo that was really, really good and so big I couldn't eat the salad. They don't have cups of soup.

Having a after-work drink at the J'Alexander is a pleasent experience, cocktails are done in front of your eyes and always prepared with a smile ...

Came here for lunch and had a great Thai salad. Had eaten here a long time ago and was glad to see it still has delicious food, great wine selection, and attentive staff. Enjoyed the experience immensely. Loved the fact that I could valet park as it is part of Somerset Mall and the mall is a busy place.

Better than the Capital Grill across the lobby in Somerset Mall in Troy. Noted for their roast beef and meat. If you like crabmeat, go for the crabmeat sandwich .... it is $38, but worth it.

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!
