We visited the new location in Columbus at 4000 Stelzer Road at Easton Gateway. The restaurant is more modern with an open floor plan. You can walk in door and pretty much see everything (I don't normally like this for a high end nicer restaurant but it seems the way things are going) so this... read more

I took my former boss here for dinner to celebrate her retirement. It was a weekday evening, so they were not crowded. It was my first time but my former boss had been here several times before in that it is close to her home. As I reviewed the menu, I noticed that the prices were on the higher side... More

Since this is a chain operation I can only assume they are all the same. Had dinner there tonight and while the food was average (wine was close to vinegar) the service could only be rated as poor. Poor in that we felt rushed from the minute we sat down. Now the place was half empty when we got there... More

My wife and I ate there last night for the first time. The atmosphere was nice, and the steak roll up appetizers were awesome. Unfortunately, that was the highlight of the dinner. We had a few issues that took the shine off the evening: 1) My water glass was dirty. It had something clinging to the side. 2) As the... More

This was my third visit here and it did not start well. They were extremely busy. I had a reservation for 8:45P and by the time we were seated it was already 9:15P. It reminded me of the famous Seinfeld reservation episode ;). Anyway, the manager came on his own to apologize, and even offered a free appetizer, which I... More

There are others in the Columbus area, but we went to a new one in the Easton, a shopping area in the Columbus area. The decor is different from others we've dined in. More modern and open, less wood and private feeling. Food was delicious. I had a special trio of filets each with a different topping. I'm not a... More

I've been eating here for years and now that brunch is a regular thing on the Sunday menu,I eat here a lot more often.these Belgian waffles are incredible.served with thick cut bacon(applewood I believe). all the servers are excellent at their job,we usually sit in the bar area,and the service in the bar is excellent as well.

Whenever I want a good meal (lunch or dinner), I can always depend on J. Alexander's. Prime Rib is always great, along with their seafood.

Visiting Columbus for just a day we were told to go to J. Alexanders and were not disappointed!! Great ribs and barbequed chicken. The atmosphere is laid back and comfortable. Don't miss a chance to eat at a J. Alexanders no matter where you might be
