Always a great experience!

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.

It does not matter what city or state, you get the same quality meal every time. The Prime Rib is a delicious favorite but I tried the cilantro shrimp and it was tender and tasty. I am not a fan of cole slaw but even it was good. I think the salads used to be better with finely chopped ingredients... More

Walking in with no expectations as we had just found our hotel. A filet Caesar salad for me and a city club salad for her. The filet was perfect and served promptly. I'm sure being there between lunch and dinner helped but still it really was fast. Everything is made there and the attention to detail showed. A great meal.... More

We've not eaten here in years because of poor service. Tonight we decided to try it again. We sat down, ordered our appetizer and drinks and our lunch. A few minutes later the manager? came by and apologized for our waitress forgetting us. I thought he meant for letting my glass go empty. The waitress came by after that and... More

Love this restaurant. Great food and service with an upbeat feel. Made reservations and arrived on time. Place was jammed with a long wait for walk in but was seated immediately. Nice that you can bring your own wine with no "corking" fee.

Well prepared sandwiches & burgers accompanied by yummy skinny fries make this a great stop. Pricey, but so large that they are good to split for 2. Good & well trained service.

This is the second time we've dined here in 2 months. This is now our go-to place in Chattanooga. The food is delicious and the service fantastic. Our server this time was Kayla L. Staff are always happy and pleasant to deal with.

I wasn't particularly impressed, but the food was pretty good and the staff was friendly. I would go elsewhere next time.

My wife and I visit J Alexander's with perhaps greater frequency than any other restaurant in Chattanooga, and mostly, we come here for one thing, that day's Featured Fish. Whether it's flounder, or snapper, or scrod, redfish, or mahi-mahi, it's always superb. Yes, it's a surprise! This place that's best known for their prime rib and steaks serves some of... More
