This place is excellent. The food is always top notch and the service is outstanding and so consistent. They have a prime rib sandwich that is my wife's go-to meal and I like the french dip sandwich. We started with the Palmento cheese dip which was very good. They allow you to substitute sides which is nice. On this particular... More

This gem, tucked into a mixed commercial development on Columbus' North Side, is well worth fighting the distance, traffic, and highway construction between our home and it. I hesitate to recommend J Alexander's, lest too many people jump on it, and make it inaccessible without a long wait - it is popular enough, already. Great - obviously well-trained and sincerely...

Since my first taste of their prime rib and Not Your Ordinary macaroni and cheese I have been hooked. Nice atmosphere and excellent service round out the experience. Definitely one of my favorites!

We liked everything about it. Great hostess and server, good drinks (expensive) and great food! The filet mignon was excellent and the prime rib was perfect!

We were looking for a quick place to eat along the highway and saw great reviews, and so stopped in. When we came in, we felt underdressed in casual clothing, shorts and golf shirt for me. Hostess was very friendly and quickly offered to seat us in a nice, quiet table in the back. Waiter was prompt, quick and helpful... More

We were assurred there was not but the waiter also said he would check before... More

We always make this a must stop when we visit Columbus this is a phenomenal restaurant with top notch food and service. The restaurant has nice ambience and atmosphere not to mention steaks that will melt in your mouth, which I had the filet with Bernaise sauce and it was wonderful. My husband had the ribs and he says they... More

We were told that Alexander's was excellent so were very enthusiastic about trying it. Her steak was goid but I found my pasta confusing and uninspired, the cilantro cut through all the other flavors. The open floor plan flooded our table with so much noise, we could barely even have a conversation. Service was fine, but a liitle distant and... More

Went here for lunch mid week with a party of 3. Wait was about 10-15 mins as the place was packed. Atmosphere was very inviting immediately walking into the restaurant. Hostess was friendly and accommodating and we were seated in the stated time. Wait staff was very attentive. Lunch menu is quite large with fish, burgers and vegetarian options. As... More

My friend and I went to Columbus for the week-end to celebrate my Birthday. I wanted to go someplace special for dinner and after reading reviews I decided on J. Alexanders. They had good reviews and they were close to the hotel where we were staying, in fact, we could have walked. I made reservations and we were seated immediately.... More
