French Dip ooh-la-la

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... read 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

My husband and I went to J Alexander's last Saturday night for dinner and drinks with friends. The food was marginal at best while the prices were those of a high end steakhouse. The beer selection was weak and the food was overcooked. The services was fantastic though and we were seated promptly on a busy evening.

J Alexander's is one of our favorite places at Cool Springs. Service is good, atmosphere is great. Food is always good but a little pricey. The salmon sandwich is very good and they serve great prime rib.

Second time eating at this location. Both times had great service. However, dishes are over priced. $28 for grilled salmon and rice? There was nothing from this dish that sets it apart from other places. Also, tried the crab cakes. Both dishes tasted good. Crab cakes were on the spicy side, but tasty. If you are looking for value, I... More

food is good quality but a bit on the pricey side. It is an upscale roadhouse but not fine dining. My rib steak was great but both our meals were served with cold mash potatoes. They quickly replaced them with hot versions when told about the problem. It is a large place with a nice atmosphere. We have eaten here... More

Nice enough restaurant, food decent, but staff is very good. Not a lot of "wow" factor, but not disappointing either. All in all, not bad.
