Food yummy, two hour wait too long.

The food was worth the wait but I would have never stayed that long if I hadn't been with friends. Great bar scene with great people watching opportunities. This is a very popular place in Franklin. Tip #1 order the steak....so yummy, but get the baked potatoes, not fries. Tip #2 Go with... read more

Visit the Cool Spring store a few weeks back. This establishment was one I use to look forward to visiting. Never again. Quality has bottomed out. Poor at best. Never again.

It get's very busy at lunch so I suggest having a reservation for a group over 4. (Note: more than half of your party must be present to be seated). I highly recommend the steak and fries, it was phenomenal!!

We live in Switzerland but are from Brentwood, so anytime we're back in town for a visit, we find this to be our "go-to" restaurant. Their service is stellar and you're never found waiting for a refill or a clean place-setting! Servers are very knowledgable and we like the fact that they have "call ahead" seating and that we can... More

The grilled Scottish salmon was wonderful as was the orzo & wild rice. Service was impeccable as always. The small things really matter...I wore black...the hostess gave me a black linen napkin. No white lint on my black!

We went with family, but this is great for couples dates as well, as low light and romantic setting :). Servers are great, not too much bothering, and not too little either. Refilling drinks often automatically without disturbing conversation. Great food, prompt service.

Even many of the "higher end" restaurants in the Cool Springs area leave something to be desired- not J. Alexander's! Especially when it comes to service. Their food and presentation is very consistent. There are many vegetarian-friendly options. If they happen to have the kale salad on their daily specials menu, get it. It's fabulous. Also they are one of... More

I have had several memorable meals at J Alexanders in various places, and the food and service are always nearly impeccable. But the one thing that stays with me, never disappoints and I often crave is a rather simple thing: their house salad. I go out of my way for great salads. And bleu cheese dressing is one of my...

We were a party of 6. The food was excellent. Our waitress was attentive. We did have to make reservations and the wait was an hour after we called.
