Disappointing

This has been my favorite place in Chattanooga but we went there February 3 and we very disappointed. They were out of the fire grilled artichokes which is my favorite. We ordered a bottle of wine but the waiter tried to serve the wrong wine. My husband ordered a dish that had cole slaw as a side... read more

As usual good service and good food. Better than a three but less than a four. Not much else to say.

This is traditionally our place to go for my wife's birthday, once a year. We came back two weeks later because we had such a good time the previous visit. The reason for the quick return is perhaps the new Ownership (Redlands Grill) which has allowed this location the freedom to step it up a notch and personalize their experience.... More

We were in town on business and enjoyed a nice dinner at this restaurant. I had the prime rib, which was good (not great) with mashed potatoes, which were excellent. My colleagues both had seafood pasta dishes which they liked. We all agreed that dinner was good, but a little pricey for what we got. Our waiter was knowledgeable and... More

Anniversary dinner: the food is outstanding, especially the croissants! We ordered a basket, and also the salads are delicious. The food is great quality, cooked to perfection. And the service blows other restaurants out of the water... my husband says the service is similar to fine dining service in France. Thank you for the lovely evening. :-)

Very good but I feel it's going downhill not as top notch as it once was. Great steak and sides but for the price I'd go to Jays seafood in Oregon district for a steak

I know the name of this dish is a little scary but if you like things spicy I promise you you will come back just to order the rattlesnake pasta again. Definitely my new favorite

Eaten at J Alexander's many times and it always is a good choice. Service and food is always good. Sometimes it can be a bit noisy and crowded, but for a good experience I would always recommend J Alexanders..

J Alexander's provided a wonderful experience on Boxing Day. We called to get reservations, but they did not take reservations. Instead, they said we could call ahead as we were going. We did so and were told it was for parties of 4 or fewer only. Missed opportunity. Our wait was not overly burdensome and we got great service from... More
