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.

I've been there 3 times now. The service is strictly mediocre and so is the food. I don't know why so many people flock there. Perhaps because it's a nice restaurant in a great location? With so many other choices, I really cannot recommend it.

Today was my second time eating at J Alexander's in West Bloomfield. I stopped there for lunch about 1:30PM. Service was top notch. Hostess very pleasant, waiter did an outstanding job. As I was seating at my booth, I couldn't help to notice how nice & professional wait staff was. This is not a cheap place, but I still consider... More

We live in the area so we have been regular diners at J. Alexander's. The staff is very cordial as are the servers. They are always willing to please. My favorite is the grilled chicken salad. The salmon with orzo is also a great choice. I do wish they had a more varied selection of soups. It would also be... More

Once again J Alexander's delivers a nice afternoon lunch with my wife. The chicken salad was very nice, according to my wife and the rattlesnake pasta was spicy and yummy as usual. Top it all off with a nice red wine and there you have it.

This restaurant has good interior design and looks fancy. The servers are also very cordial. But the food is not that delicious for its price. Also, I have to wait so long if I don't make a reservation. I prefer outback.

I had just a brief period of time before my flight out and J Alexander's was near my job, prior to leaving to the airport. I was seated immediately and the service prompt. A limited selection of local craft beers in the bottle was available. Nothing on draught! I loved the large rack of ribs, house salad and especially enjoyed... More

Greeted warmly upon entering, great choice of food, very personable server. Terrific family restaurant with something for everyone. Don't miss the grilled artichokes...what a great treat!

I just completed a short visit to Detroit to see family. I was introduced to this wonderful restaurant. As I walked into the beautiful spot all I could smell was the wonderful, subtle smell of the wood burning stove from the kitchen. The staff are all very polished and professional. I selected to eat at this establishment twice while in... More
