Family dinner at J Alexanders was great. We had the artichoke for an appetizer. Ordered kids meals first which included Mac n cheese, grilled cheese, and chicken strips. Portions for kids were substantial in my opinion. I had the salmon, and my sister had the steak and fries. My older kids had the hamburgers (cheeseburgers on the menu that they... More

I wish there was a good rating. This is a solid place to take someone to dinner. It is a fine place for business dinner or a date. Atmosphere - I enjoyed the jazz. Decor is pleasant. The restaurant is a little loud but a very nice place for a date. Salads - my wife and I enjoyed Alex's salad.... More

The food is consistently very good. The service is at time almost aggressive in whipping dishes away the moment you put a fork down. My glass of pop was replaced the moment it was only a quarter consumed which may not be such a bad thing after I realized we were charged $2.95 per Coke which is my major complaint.... More

I know it's a chain...but it is fantastic! Rice and Orzo? Carrot Cake? Mac n cheese? Need I say more? Perfect for date night, or business, or friends. Prices aren't bad. Wine selection is nice (they did away with the Reidel glasses :( The food is always AMAZING. Service is the best! I like that you can get things to... More

J Alexanders gives you a good meal. The portion sizes are too large for my liking. It is a "can't go wrong" type of place.

The waitstaff was unfreindly. They just drop the food infront of you and walk away. Rush in rush you out. Food was lukewarm.

My wife and I eat here at least every couple weeks. Always great food and super service. Yesterday, it seemed to be taking an unusually long time to get our entrees. We didn't mind, as we were visiting with an out of town friend whom we have not seen in ages, so barely noticed. Finally we realized it was getting... More

My family has a tradition of going out to a restaurant on Christmas Eve. This year's choice was a wise one. It is technically a chain restaurant, but it didn't have that feel. They advertise their cuisine as "American", which, I suppose, could cover a multitude of sins. I had their prime rib, "smashed" potatoes, a salad, and a great... More

Steaks cooked over wood fire, don't get any better than that does it?...Went on a Sunday eve(another plus, most higher class restaurants closed on Sundays). I would classify it above Longhorn and below Mancys. Fanstasic service, all employees pay attention to your needs not just your waitress.Food was great and cooked precisely to order. A few more kids than I... More

Man I am telling you If I had to pick my favorite J Alexander's would be it hands down. I mean there is nothing about this one I don't like. There not real cheap but, they are not over priced either. The service here is unbelievable. I have questioned waitresses here why when they see an empty plate or a... More
