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...

J. Alexanders is consistently excellent. It's on the pricey side, but the portion sizes are huge so you'll probably have enough for another meal. Excellent service at busy times. If you come in at slow times (after 1-ish on weekdays) you might get less than outstanding service since it seems like that's when they have the newer servers on the... More

My girlfriends and I made our annual trek to J. Alexander's Saturday. (We all go with a friend whose deceased husband took her to this restaurant on their anniversary.) I am never disappointed with the food here. It can be a little pricey, and only you can say if it's worth it, but I always have a good meal. This... More

I'm a vegetarian, and as such become very tired of being served frozen Garden burgers. Fortunately, J Alex makes their own--and they're absolutely fabulous! The thin-cut fries are also fabulous, and the service is usually flawless. The only complaint I have about last night's experience is that they charged me $2.95 for a club soda. If I'd known that I... More

This has consistently been a great restaurant to visit in the south Dayton area, slight removed from the hubbub in the midst of the Dayton Mall area. Since first opening this restaurant has maintained a wonderful standard of consistent great service, menu options, and food preparation. A private room is available for group events. And bar seating/service is available, with... More

Good service, Nice decor, If you go on a weekend you might want to get there early because it fills up quickly. They do have phone ahead seating.

The food in J Alexanders is the best I have had. I had the Filet with Bearnaise sauce. Melts in your mouth. Service is outstanding too.
