Quality food, but pricey!

The service and the environment is excellent. However, be aware that there are not many choices on the menu. The wine collection is good and the bar is first-rate.

consistent food and service. Although they have been raising the prices a lot. I was shocked to see their calamari app went from 10 or 11 to $16 .. their sandwiches also went up. The food is good, the fries are the best, but really does not justify the prices they are asking for. I guess its based on demand..... More

J. Alexander's food and cocktails are on the pricey side, but you will receive excellent service. I do have a problem; however, with the fact that all of the long-haired servers are required to wear the exact same hairstyle (a high bun). What is this, The Duggars?!

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
