The food is well prepared but way overpriced for what it is... A chain restaurant. Average at best. Alex's salad is tasty too bad it isn't included in meal.

I love the prime rib and the ribs. Excellent mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, and fries. This place also consistently has the best service I have experienced. Great staff and the best food around for medium price range. My favorite place for special occasions.

Comfortable bar, love the ambiance. Good food, personable wait staff. For a busy Friday night, we had a short wait for our table.

Servers are polite, willing to please.Nothing is a problem.Food is consistently good. It has that nice hardwood flavor when you order either salmon, or a burger or even a steak. When you walk in you can watch the chefs grill, they'll even talk to you if you want! Salads are always fresh with nice accompaniments. Nice wine list.

I've had several visits here in the last few months and have always had good food and service. The prices can get a little outrageous ($13 guacamole???) but I appreciate the consistently good food.

We came to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Had been to the sister-restaurant in Somerset Collection so we sort of know what to expect. Drinks & food were over-priced for its location. (a shot of tequila for $12?). We had calamari for appetizer, which was good. I ordered prime ribs and found it too salty. It was a good size, brought... More

Pricy, but very convenient. Great steaks ans appetizers. Wine list is impressive. Service is terrible at Orchard Lake location. Slow, forgetful, snobby. Tried it few times, management need to take care of the issue.

Visited this J. Alexanders with family (4 adults and 3 children). We came early around 5pm to avoid the rush with the kids. We were seated and the hostess left us with 3 menus and never returned. Later we found that the table was not provided with enough place settings for everyone. I ended up going to another unoccupied table... More

Love this place. Price is high, but well worth it. Ahi Tuna appetizer by request (not on menu) is fantastic. calamari is breaded paper thin & very fresh. Bartenders are on top of their game there.

Even thought this is a chain, it is more upscale than most chains. Great Steak Maui! Love the chicken fingers, cole slaw is awesome. Good wine list. Typically very good service.
