Franklin TN was the first one I ever went to. Haven't been back since 1997. I have spent the past 15 years at the Denver/Englewood location and am amazed at how great this restaurant still is. Food is always good but to me. .. This is how you do a restaurant!

While visiting the area for work I stopped by for lunch. Excellent food and service. I had the bacon / egg and potato pizza. Very different , but VERY good. The crust was very light and airy. Highly recommend !

Having just moved to the Nashville area this past spring, we find ourselves coming here regularly for lunches and dinner. The menu (drink and food) offers a good amount of variety and the service for the most part has been quite good. If you go at 'shift change' periods you can get a tad lost in the shuffle but otherwise... More

I love J's my husband and I frequent this place. All of their food and even their drinks are always fresh. Theor portions are large so no worries if it will be enough food.

The food is always great and very consistent. Service is fabulous. Our favorites are the Grilled Chicken salad, the smoked salmon appetizer, the BEST carrot cake ever! Also wonderful bar and atmosphere!

Anybody that lives in the Nashville area will be aware of the reputation for quality that J Alexander's represents. They are proponents of TQM (total quality management) which has as it's goal, zero defects. The prices are not cheap for the Franklin area, but the value is excellent...large portions and consistently well-prepared food. There is a wide variety of items... More

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.
