I used to come here once a week back in the day when I worked across the street at the old Kmart headquarters building. But that was nearly a decade ago and I’ve since moved out of state. Now I am only able to enjoy this place once or twice a year when I’m town visiting family and friends. Through... More

It was raining buckets and if we were going to eat at home we needed to stop at the grocery store, so we decided to eat at the mall where we could have covered parking. It was our first time at this restaurant, but it won't be our last. Service was excellent and so was the food. My husband had... More

The service at the bar is always fantastic. I enjoy the bartenders for a cocktail and the food is always cooked perfectly. Great service and great food for business or pleasure!

Clean looking, fast orders, fun atmosphere, accommodating servers and chefs, and great drinks. Everything I've ever had or my friends and family has had here for dinner, was great. Never a fail. Plenty of parking at the mall is available and valet is an option.

We tend to eat here when we stay at the Somerset Inn because it is the most affordable of the sit down restaurants at the mall. I like but don't love the restaurant. They don't take reservations. They serve potatoes with too many of their entries. It is pretty middle of the road, suburban. The portions are generous so I... More

We picked this place because it was at the mall. We were not expecting too much because it is a chain and it is in a mall. First impressions; very busy, pricey and our table was in an high traffic area. We ordered the grilled artichokes to start. I had the chicken and my husband had the crab cakes. We... More

The cheeseburger at J. Alexander's is excellent. It has a smokey flavor that is to die for. I am struggling on trying anything else each time I go there since I really love the cheeseburger. The atmosphere can use a little work as it is pretty dark and loud. Service is always excellent.
