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

All the staff were courteous and friendly. Our server was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Restaurant was super clean and atmosphere was... More

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

I grew back repeatedly for the vegetarian burger here. Service is fast and friendly, though they do constantly try to upsell.

J. Alexander's always has good food and service. The restaurant is attractive. Be prepared to wait. It's almost always busy. There's a nice bar to get a drink while you wait. The restaurant is a bit noisy, but the good points override that.

Fun presentation of food and very generous portions. I've been for dinner many times but this was the first time for lunch, what a pleasant experience. The server was new and made a mistake or two but with time and familiarity she will be the best server they have.
