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.

We had a family dinner at J. Alexander's that was very good. The salads were fresh and the dressings were homemade. The roasted chicken was perfectly cooked. Another popular item at our table was steak & fries. It's a good place for a nice dinner.

This remains on my top five Franklin restaurants list (Saffire, Red Pony, Stoney River, J. Alexander's, Bonefish Grill, and an honorable mention to Cork & Cow). We just consistently enjoy this restaurant. The Cypress Salad is always a favorite I'm happy to recommend. And I BEG the restaurant to bring back the tequilla beans side!

Cool Springs has several nice restaurants, but J Alexander's is a notch above your regular chain restaurants. I have visited several times and the food is always good. Great service as well. They do butterfly the fillet though it is not mentioned on the menu.

When you drive into the parking lot you know this is a good place to eat because the parking lot is full. You are not disappointed with the menu, selection and variety very good. The quality and taste are excellent. The Prime Rib sandwich and the Chicken Tenders are two of my favorites. Truly one of NashVegas best restaurants.

The food and service are very good!! It's a bit pricey, but a nice treat. The Mac-n-cheese is great and the warm carrot cake is to die for!!! Generous portions.
