I like the ambiance here, dimly lit lights, nice booths, and great service! I've always ordered the fish of the day and have never been disappointed. The servings are quite large, and they have a nice bar and patio area.

If you want a special place to eat a wonderful meal look no further. Classy and great service. nice atmosphere and even better food. This is the absolute best steak I have ever had and my girl would eat there most any day. There are heaters outside if you need a break. Do not miss a chance to visit.

J.'s has a really nice brunch menu on the weekends. My husband's favorite thing to order was the filet eggs benedict. It was great for a while, but then they started offering it only on Sundays. They changed the meat they use for the filet. Also, it was always a crap shoot for them to get the eggs right -... More

I've coming here for years and I can't knock the food or the service,but prices have crept up. Recently I was there with my wife for lunch.Two sandwiches and two drinks (non-alcoholic) and the tab was over $40. With a beer it would be over $50. Lots of wine by the glass but that's pricey, too. I guess you could... More

First of all they sit us at crappy seats, so I said ok, I'll take this, but wished I wouldnt have. It took our server a long time to come to our table, once she finally came she took our order and we order an appetizer, we waited almost an hour for our appetizer just so the manager or who... More

Our office staff had a Christmas party here and had a great time, but would do things differently next time. Apparently everyone else in town had their party the same night too. We weren't told our wait time and we ended up being separated by an aisle. And the blackened redfish was SUPER spicy and almost inedible, and I like... More

A group from our office went there for a holiday lunch again. The paralegals like it a lot and we went back there. I have met many people for a business lunch there. There is a nice variety of food - good burgers and other sandwiches, salads, fish and pasta. I had their specula oriental salad with chicken and it... More

Shopping on Dayton brought us to dinner at J Alexanders. Prime Rib was wonderful with a loaded baked potato. Best part of the meal was the Deviled Egg appetizer. Simply wonderful. Be sure to try them.

Have yet to have a bad experience or meal here. The Waite staff is great and responsive. The Prime Rib Sandwich was super.

I stopped by for dinner on a week night seeking some reliable known cuisine. I sat at the bar thinking that it would equate to fast service. The two bartenders spent more time speaking with each other rather than making sure the customers were serviced. It was a sad experience since I love this chain and usually have glowing things...
