Always goid

I love the Ahi Tuna Salad here. It is a large portion, and quit delicious. If that is not what would interest you, the menu is varied, with many excellent choices.

My wife and I had not been to J Alexanders for several years. We were on our way to TPAC in Nashville and thought we were try it. They do not take reservations, but if you call 45 minutes to an hour ahead of time, they said it would shorten any waiting time. We arrived early evening (5:30ish) and were... More

Visited upon a recommendation. This is a very nice restaurant a few steps higher than most "mall type" family restaurants. They have a very good wine selection and the dinner menu is sure to please even the most picky eaters.

The fries - that's my motivating force to eat at any J. Alexander's restaurant. Fries and the Veggie Burger are top notch, but of course the menu is large with a lot of great choices. This location, in the busy Cool Springs area is very friendly, efficient, clean and comfortable, although the surrounding traffic can make is a challenge to... More

I've often visiting the various J Alexanders around town. You can never go wrong with a Steak Maui!!!! J's may be a chain restaurant, but I always leave happy!

This is by far our favorite go to restaurant. When out shopping in the area we always plan for a late lunch. The first couple times we were there I had the daily special and my wife had the French Dip with their thin cut fries. After sharing one bite of my wife's sandwich I can't bring myself so order...

We have been eating at J Alexander's for years. The food and the service are consistent without fail. We try to get there early for lunch (no later than 11:30) to avoid a waiting line and don't travel out for dinner often. I ordered the open faced chicken salad sandwich with orzo salad side for years, then one day it... More

I am a "foodie" and this is my favorite place to eat out. Great, great food....always fresh and prepared to order. Always great service too. J. Alexander's even makes their own condiments, cakes, etc at each store. Simply great food.

We were there on a Saturday night and had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. We ordered the devil egg and grilled artichoke appetizers. They came promptly and were delicious. This chains food is consistent and good and doesn't seem to vary in quality from location to location. If you want a consistently good meal this is the... More

Nice, intimate restaurant for a date. Pricey. Ordered Ahi tuna salad, which was tasty, but it was not satisfying; there was no bread with the meal and that would have helped. The salad was quite expensive so I did not order an appetizer, but in this case, that is what I could have done in order to not leave hungry.... More
