Solid steak offerings and service

We dined here on a week night with a group from the office. The service was quick with regards to taking us to our table, bringing the drinks, and delivering the orders. We had selections of beer, wine, and martini offerings. We chose to skip the appetizers. The salads we ordered included a... read more

Started off with an appetizer that you can't find in a lot of places. The gourmet deviled eggs were delicious. The cheeseburger was great and made to order also.

Never have been overly impressed with this venue, but, my dining companion wanted to have lunch here. Since I never have had lunch at this restaurant, I agreed. Noise level, for a change, was not a problem. Dark, yes, it most certainly is. My companion ordered a Diet Coke and I ordered a Bloody Mary immediately after being quickly seated.... More

Many good things to try at K Alexanders, but I ordered a old standby. Had the Alex salad with Blue Cheese crumbles and vinegarette. Wife ordered the small version of the Alex salad and a Hamburger & Fries. The thin cut French Fries are really good, give them a try.

The food was just okay and on the pricey side for a boring dark dinning area. Service was rather impolite too which was surprising!

We eat a J Alexander's all the time. They have very friendly servers and great food. We go here for lunch and dinner. Great selection of wine and the bartenders know how to make our favorite mixed drinks. Try them once and you will be ready to go back again and again to try the whole menu.

I've never been disappointed when visiting and dining at J Alexanders. The food and service is always exceptional. Great place to meet to discuss business too.

As a patron since they had preview nights way back in 1992 (i think) I've been a regular diner at J Alexander's. The delicious salads are now half the size and missing the decadent drizzled croissants. Their housemade dressings are still wonderful (Kiawah Island-yum) If it's lunch I usually get the French Dip which is now filled with less quantity... More

This place is so incredibly unorganized- we showed up and they told us that it would be a 30-45 min wait, an hour and a half later they said it'd be another 45 minutes. The staff at the front desk don't know what they are doing or saying and they seem to give tables to people who complain the loudest.... More

This place really knows how it's done from start to finish. I went in by myself for some dinner after a business meeting and sat at the bar. Not incredibly busy but the two bartenders were constantly moving and not bad on the eyes if I must admit, a petite red head and a blonde. Friendly, prompt service, great food.... More
