Waitstaff was snobbish and condescending so it didn't start out well. Food was okay, just okay and definitely not worth the price. Meat was tough and over cooked and when I sent it back they just brought me the same piece of meat only colder. I think it just sat on a counter in the kitchen until someone remembered to... More

When we first began eating at J Alexander's several years ago, it was wonderful. They have changed many things, which has made the dining experience bad! They took away the croissants. They changed the salads, and the steaks are bad quality. We always took out of town quests there for dinner, but not anymore. Shame on you J. Alexanders. Why... More

Good Service.Good Food even though they overcooked my steak. Prices are a little high for the quality. The steak and fries is excellent and one of the lower priced items on the menu. Wish they had a lunch menu..

Service is very kind, professional. Desserts are served in big portion, very good taste! If you ask for an espresso coffee, please do not expect... More

We had lunch at J Alexander's on a Wednesday. It looks like a regular steakhouse chain and we weren't expecting something so fancy inside. We were dressed for sightseeing and shopping and assumed that would be fine for lunch. While they didn't turn us away or offer my husband a jacket,the. Waitstaff definitely looked down at us and we were... More

Best french dip sandwich ever!. Went for lunch and ordered it. I love french dip sandwiches so I've had my share :) This one was one of the best I've ever eaten. The beef was flavorful and tender and generous. I ordered the smashed potatoes instead of the fries, so glad I did, they were great, My daughter ordered the... More

A friend and I ate here every Saturday morning for months before I moved back to Dallas. The servers remembered us, had our coffee selection at the table by the time we sat down. After 1 time asking for a to go coffee, they automatically brought them. Food was very good, always enjoyed my meals there.

Very nice, but not fancy steakhouse. Wife and I decided to spend the weekend out of town and ended up in Franklin, TN. arrived around 7pm, had an hour and half wait, but spent that time talking, so was not an issue. We expected a wait since we had not called ahead. We both ordered steak; her the steak and... More
