15 years ago this was the place to go for prime rib and drinks at the bar. But for the past 2-3 yrs it has gone downhill! Quality of prime rib is inconsistent for the price. Service while decent is often too rushed. The team-work server concept makes you feel they want a quick turn over. We were not quite... More

We've always had very nice meals at this chain. We ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer for the table. The crab cakes were wonderful! The next time I'm going to get this as a meal, so I don't have to share them ;) The prime rib as usual was very good.

We intended to drop by for a drink, and ended up eating at the bar. Devonte and Andrea were absolutely fantastic! A true old world charm to their attentiveness and courtesy. It had been a while since our last visit. Based on this tremendous service and great menu options, we'll revisit again! Wine recommendation: Prisoner Red

Wonder experience. Thank you. My family and I came to celebrate my nephew's graduation on Saturday with you. Dinner and service was top notch. When I return to Dayton we will return for another joyful dinner with you.

My wife and I enjoy J Alexander's signature prime rib and Alex salad. There is none finer in the Dayton area. The staff is always very helpful and provides great service. Always one of the top choices on date night.

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.
