Great Choices on this Menu

This is a must visit location for J Alexanders - very dark but with great windows and views. Wait-staff is fantastic and friendly. The food is very good, lots of healthy choices and great dessert options when you feel like cheating - a little.

This place is very comfortable, the service is good and the food is always fresh. I especially like the chopped salads which are huge but the entrees are also very good. This is a restaurant that doesn't feel like a chain.

Although the menu here is very limited, they are always consistent. If you ordered Mac and Cheese a year ago it will be the same if you go there this very same day. The service is good and there's not usually a very long wait. I go here when I'm looking for good food, a relaxing environment, and chocolate cake... More

Went to lunch with a friend and shared the rib dinner which was plenty. The ribs were delicious. Would have given it a five star rating but they took my favorite, blue cheese cole slaw off the menu.

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.
