Must save room for carrot cake

Food is still excellent & the carrot cake...priceless!!!!! I've tried a new location (& state) and I am not disappointed! Service was excellent as well. I am in Sales and go to a lot of restaurants. This is the first time I decided to rate a restaurant!

Stopped by for lunch when I saw that J Alexander's was close to Easton. I had their filet and fries. NO ONE makes french fries like J Alexander's. Their additional seasoning is a tasty delight, though I'm sure they must be high in sodium. Also had dessert that day. It was their molten chocolate cake...with ice cream. I had them... More

I was in town for a stamp show at an adjacent hotel and happened upon this place. When I entered, it was a contemporary place with that feel of a restaurant chain. You could definitely smell the aroma of a wood fire (a good thing), which is what they cook their meals over. My choice was a simple cheeseburger for... More

The service is great and the place looks refined and contemporary with a large bar and dining room. But the details of the interior have that vaguely faux, chain restaurant feel that is trying to look old and authentic but is really closer to a new take on Fridays when it comes to the food quality. It sort of feel... More

I had a nice business lunch at J. Alexander's. It is a lovely location and our server, Eli did a great job. He was attentive and helpful. The thing with J. Alexander's is that, while their food was good, the menu is not very interesting. There is nothing that would cause me to go there. I understand that I go... More

This was our first experience with J Alexander's, but my sister had a great experience so we tried out the Easton location for our anniversary night. We went on a Sunday night--no wait and sat on the patio. The wait staff is great--no hurrying or rushing the meal along. We ordered drinks first--they have a long wine list, so that... More

On a recent trip to Columbus, I had taken my date to the South Drive-In Theaters (see my review) that went quite well, so this time she asked to double-date with her sister and husband who both work in the Crosswoods section of Columbus (North of I-270 but East of High Street). After an enjoyable time at the Marcus Crosswoods... More

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch with friends. I enjoyed the ahi tuna burger & tasty couscous salad while my husband had the trout – huge portion and he said very tasty. Our hostess, Heather, was delightful, and server Scott was friendly and efficient, as were the others who checked on us. The restaurant was comfortable, clean, upscale atmosphere, easy to... More

Even though J Alexander's is in the midst of being re-branded as Redlands Grill, everything about this J Alexander's is top quality with the BEST service. Drinks, salads and steaks were perfect! And the recommendation for our wine was exactly our taste! Couldn't have had a better dinner!
