A wonderful restaurant! The food was absolutely delicious, atmosphere was great. The server was very helpful and attentive. We all ordered steaks, all were different cuts of meat and each one was perfectly cooked.

When I go out of town, I'm always expecting to eat at a cool place the first night. I don't know where this expectation comes from, but it's a must to hit up the cool place with the dimly lit atmosphere first, save the quaint places for later in the trip. J. Alexander's is that perfect first night restaurant. They... More

This is a good place to go with a group, since there's something for everyone. The food is very average, nothing too offensive, but no shinning stars. It's safe. Service was good, the place is attractive and the prices are ok. Just know the food will fill you up and that's about all.

We have been to this location twice before and enjoyed it. However, this time my husbands chicken had blood running from it. When we alerted the floor manager she quickly apologized and whisked it away. She returned with the very same piece, except it was now well done. She offered her apologies again and left. In other J Alexanders this... More

This is my second time to dine at this restaurant. The staff were kind, considerate, and efficient. But it was the dressing that brought me back. I have a milk allergy and so many places just offer the standard dressings. I explained the allergy and the waiter immediately suggested this dressing. It was wonderful. If they bottled it I would...

I have been a customer of J Alexander's in Franklin for years. Their food is consistently excellent; the restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere; their servers always give you the best service. I would like them to be a little more varied in their menu selections. You should definitely give this restaurant a try.

Our table had a wide range of entrées, from burgers, fish, steak Maui, and filet. All were presented and served to the exact way of preparation we asked our server. The orzo and wild rice is a must have. If that wasn't enough, the carrot cake we shared for dessert, was served warm with the frosted topping melting as we... More

J. Alexanders has quickly become my favorite restaurant in the Cool Springs area. Good, consistent food. Interesting, different dishes that never disappoint. Fantastic salads and steaks! I just love this place! Only wish it was easier to get in to. Call-ahead seating is a big help during busy times to cut your wait time!!

J's offers a large menu with choices to make everyone happy. Their chicken pasta soup is delish, hearty salads, yummy sandwiches and burgers, fries that shouldn't be missed, plus seafood, chicken and steak. If the wait is long try the bar area for seating, or go for lunch.
