I was very impressed with this restaurant as it caters to a bit of an upscale crowd. My business clients suggested this location for us to meet, and although it was a bit loud, we found it conducive to our meeting for the first time. The waitress allowed us to speak for a while and enjoy a beverage before ordering,... More

I don't like chain restaurants, instead strongly preferring to eat at small, local places run by families or the chef him/herself. But darn these folks. Everything I ever get here is great. Recently, their take on brussel sprouts and cauliflower blew me away. Everything is just so good and is complimented by prompt service people who smile and act like... More

The experience starts when you come in... The grant kitchen opens into different ambients, perfect for a business lunch or dinner, or a family's meal, patio and private rooms... I'm talking about everything! Then the food.... Many delicious salad options, enough for a big appetite... Meats, fish and chicken. Quality wines and cocktails. Come early or make a reservation, it's... More

This is a nice place, but we had heard so much hype that our dining experience was a bit of a disappointment. The food was very good, but it took forever! And even though it was good I thought it was a little pricey for the portions served. My husband got a steak which was served with no salad or... More

There are so many good dining options in Nashville now, but we keep returning to J Alexander's over and over. Why? Great food. Great service. Beautiful decor. Terrific staff. And I'll mention the food a second time. Their menu offers a wide range of selections, and everything is consistently good. Love the wood fired pizzas, and the steaks and seafood... More

We waited 45 minutes for a seat at J Alexanders, but that's no problem on account of the stellar food. After the extensive wait time we sat down and order drinks. After the drinks come as usual we ordered or Entree. All of us ordered the steak Maui and a Caesar salad. The Salad came first, my personal opinion is... More

I attended my granddaughter's high school graduation in Franklin, TN and was treated to lunch at this restaurant. A treat indeed and one of the nicest restaurants with a truly friendly staff, fantastic food and reasonable prices. The ambience was welcoming and I will definitely return for yet another treat!

We arrived around 3:30 pm for a late lunch/snack. It was extremely chilly in this dimly-lit ambiance. The server was pleasant, the food was delicious (especially crème brulee and the Citron tea). Food was served quick and service on-point. Thanks J Alexander's!
