Decent food for an expensive price

Pricey and elegant but food is okay. The prime rib was decent and my husband had a hamburger and fries and loved it. It was worth trying out.

The food was ok but I'm not convinced it was worth the price. It wouldn't be easy to eat here if you are on any kind of a diet. Lots of sweet sauces anf fried foods. I had filet kabobs served on a bed of rice with grilled vegetables. Veggies were squash, red and green peppers, and onions. They were... More

Went to the bar for a quick drink and ordered take out. The bartender was quick and friendly. The order of shrimp tacos and carrot cake came out timely and the bartender actually double checked the order before telling me it was ready.

We had good meals since we moved here but J Alexanders nailed every meal we ordered. You have to try the Gilled Artichoke Appetizer! We had the prime rib, the Maui Ribeye and the Carolina Crab cakes. The prime rib was perfectly cooked. I hate to over use the word but it the right one. Sometimes when you order Prime... More

NIcely arranged tables and warm, friendly atmosphere. Food is great and prices reasonable. It is well thought of in an area that is full of restaurants.

We were traveling through on our way home. From outside, the restaurant looked inviting. TA's rating intrigued us to find out the rave. I'm glad we did... For starters, we had the Fire Roasted Artichokes. I've never seen or had artichokes like this. I'll spare the "spoiler", but you have got to try it. It was absolutely delicious! We both... More

My wife and I had just arrived in Chattanooga around 8 p.m. on a Friday evening. This restaurant was conveniently located just a few blocks from our hotel. From the outside, the facility looked inviting, so I checked them out on my tripadvisor mobile app. The high rating convinced us this was a place to try. I was able to... More

We decided to try J Alexander's because the reviews said they were the best in the city. Sometimes the reviews can be misleading. The food and the atmosphere was really good but when we couldn't eat all our meal I specifically didn't touch one of my dishes and asked for containers to package it. The waitress offered to do it...

Teen loved the appetizer of six egg rolls. All 3 of us shared the Ceasars salad. Prime rib not seasoned well. Lacked flavor. Above average portions and not likely to finish ALL food. Box your own food. Trust me on this one. Made reservation, but not terribly busy on a Thursday. Very noisy chatter in dining area.

I've been dining at this fine establishment since it was built and have never had a bad meal. The servers are prompt. The service is just fast enough that you don't feel rushed. And the atmosphere is delightful.
