Almost Really Good

The bartender needs help. I ordered a Bloody Mary, and got vodka and tomato juice with a monster piece of celery. A good Bloody Mary is not that difficult to make, and this one was terrible... The food is very good. Big portions, well prepared and served.

Called ahead at 6:00 p.m. they were not on a wait, so away we went. Lyndsey was our server and she couldn't have done a better job. From bringing special carrots and ranch dressing for our 4 year old granddaughter to her excellent and attentive service. Please ask for her. As for the food it was up to J Alexander's... More

Went for a small birthday party...called ahead to let them know and reminded them when they seated us. I don't think they cared. Service was below average. Food was fine. Absolutely nothing special.

Jay has been my GOTO restaurant for years. Their grilled Salmon is amazing and they make the best margaritas in town.

Prices are not cheap. Salads just got a lot smaller. Lots of better choices in the area. Service was fair. After getting our meals the server didn't come back until we were done. Could have used a drink refill.

This isn't based on just a visit. I've been coming here for years. I have never had a bad meal or disappointing experience here. Beyond that, J. Alexander's has squadrons of attractive, energetic, well-trained people who take care of you as much as you need. As I think about it, I can't think of another restaurant at any price or... More

First off it's very elegant and the wait staff is perfect. Everyone works together it's wonderful. I'm sorry to say and I usually avoid it cause I find it ridiculous to put deviled eggs on the menu but they were so very good!! Everything was. If you like Mac and Cheese please try theirs it's beyond words. Even their croutons... More
