Yes, this is a mid-priced, casual dining chain restaurant. But they do it as well as anybody...maybe even better. I've been going to this location since they opened (what? 10 years ago?) and I have never had a bad meal. I no longer live in Michigan so I only get here once a year so, but I'm impressed by their...

I was here with coworkers during the holiday, so of course a good 45 min to an hr wait. The place was quite crowded which was expected. We ended up with a table right by the kitchen which sucked, but what can you do. The waiter seemed a little backed up, so service was a little slow trying to get... More

Want a nice place to go without breaking the bank? Try JAlexanders next time for date night! Always have had great service and food. Also fun to go after a long day shopping! Have also done takeout...but you have to order at bar. If they are packed, you can always eat at the bar too!

Why this place does not take reservations beyond call ahead seating for 4 or less, is lost on me!!!! Our family of 6 had a terrible wait on a Sunday night a few weeks ago when we arrived at 5:30. The wait seemed like it was just not only due to people dining long, but also to being very under... More

I am not a fan of mall restaurants but J Alexanders is different. Reasonable value, good top shelf liquor selections, and great steak. Surprisingly, it also had the best french fries I have tasted in years.

I consider myself something of a connoisseur when it comes to a rack of ribs, and I can honestly say I've never had a rack like this before or since my visit to J Alexander's. It had everything. The portion was huge, the fries were sublime (thin, in a rather artistic way, and really tasty) and the barbecue sauce had... More

I always stop in J Alexanders after shopping. It's located right in the north building. Service is quick and very polite. I love the Salads and Burgers. Oh and you can't miss out on the queso dip to start things out. Very nice place!

We had a very good lunch here while we were shopping at Somerset. We were surprised by the good service, very quick serving and good food.
