My husband, brother, and mother dined here on Dec. 7, 2014 and we're generally disappointed in our service and food. First, we did not have one consistent server the entire evening. One person got our drinks and appetizer order, another took our entree order, another brought our check, another took our card, and someone else brought it back to our... More

It was nice to try a new place at Easton. The food was good but not great. From past experiences at J Alexander, I recall the prime rib being bigger and tastier. The extra cut was kind of small. I was really looking forward to the prime rib but I left disappointed. The filet was okay but not the same... More

I went to the new location today for dinner. It was my first time ever visiting the restaurant. I have heard nothing but good things about the food from other locations. Since this place has only been open for a week I think it is expected that there will be some kinks. First off i had the shrimp tacos, mac... More

The service was good and the place was pretty. The food was pretty average for the price we paid. Maybe if I was into steaks I would rate it differently. There is no children's menu but the kids found some pasta and sandwiches. They did manage to find us a table with just a few hours notice. I was pleased... More

J Alexander’s is an upscale (but not over-the-top formal) restaurant where beef clearly is the focus. There are certainly options on the menu for the non-red meat eater, but people generally come to J Alexander’s with steak in mind. Our salads and appetizers were well-executed and tasty, but it was our entrees that stole the show. Those in our party... More

Went there for my in-laws wedding anniversary. For the price, I expected better! I ordered a fillet, medium well...it came out still mooing! I normally don't like to send my food back, and almost never do, but I simply cannot eat a rare piece of meat! Service was good, they were quick to rectify the issue!

Not really anything you could complain about here. Coupled with the fantastic food, it is no surprise that I have decided to give this a 5/5. The service was superb: we had our food about 5-10 minutes after ordering. The dessert (Very Best Chocolate Cake) was incredibly moist and had a great hot fudge sauce. Our entrees were wonderful, from... More

I have been here many time. The food is always very good here. Most of their choices are very good. Prices are very reasonable. The service is average. The servers wont care much after they serve you the food.
