Sounds simple but superb. My 1-1/2 yr old had buttered penne noodles, also very yummy. Best lemon... read more

Have eaten here numerous times. Food has been delicious no matter what I have ordered. Especially love the Prime Rib. The waiters have always been extremely courteous and professional. This is my favorite restaurant in Chattanooga.

J. Alexander's has the most amazing brunch in Chattanooga! Don't miss the West End Quiche and fresh mimosas!

My husband and I were in Chattanooga for one evening and we asked several folks for a recommendation... 9 out of 10 suggested J Alexander's! Nice atmosphere with dim lighting to shine on a menu which had a little something for everyone! We asked a very knowledgable server, Thomas, for suggestions as this was our first time! He shared in... More

Food was excellent! Service could have been better, but it wasn't bad for a busy Sunday. Will defiantly go back!

Had a great meal for New Years Eve. Seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time. Our server Todd did a great job and the food was wonderful. Best prim rib in town. Will go back soon I hope. Large menu something for everybody.

They changed the channel so we could see the sporting event we were interested in. Great wine list, large menu with healthy options. Excellent service!

My wife an I live nearby, so we have dined several times at JAlex. It never disappoints whether lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is subdued and friendly at the same time, inviting. The food is always imaginative but not haughty. The service is always friendly and attentive. Try the huge salads or desserts, but bring some help.

This is near a mall so it is not near the touristy areas and it feels more chain like (I think it is a small chain). However, if all chains were like this, then I'd eat at them. I had sword fish and it was excellent. My wife enjoyed her meal, but was so focused on her artichoke that she... More
