Great Prime Rib

My wife's favorite place, because of the prime rib. It's her choice for her birthday dinner out. Wait staff is usually very good. We got a really good one this last visit. Only complaint with this place, and all the others who do the same, is that they put this gawd-awful flavorless shredded cheese... read more

Agree with many others; great wine options, mediocre food, overpriced, but nice atmosphere. The tragedy, of too big corporate model is felt throughout, from the auto wait staff questions, so obviously skewed toward $$$$$ and not quality. Paid $9 for a well vodka drink!!!! And it was watered......sigh. Pity the workers who bear the brunt of disgruntled visitors.😟

Have dined at J Alexander's many times. But having moved to Cincinnati, not to often. Happened to be on the south side of Dayton and had the ability to "tickle out taste buds" once again. Really hard to beat the Alex house salad. Onion Rings for a appetizer, chicken fingers & fries also big with a burger & fries. Wonderful.

This Restaraunt has goon down hill. I would be embarrassed to recommend this to anyone. Even the management doesn't care how bad customers are treated. I used to love going to this place but no longer. Don't waist your time.

Service is the absolute pits. When you have to talk to manager because waiter never shows up at your table and the last time someone did you asked for the ice. It is terrible. The general manager could care less. He didn't even say I am sorry you had a problem. I highly recommend you take this specific Restaraunt off... More

I go there with my daughter occasionally and we look forward to it. The menu has a very good selectionn. The only disappointment was the bistro steak was pretty tough and chewy. I love their house salads, sure wish they had continued their croissants they used to serve with it. Drinks are expensive. Taco plate was very good. The wait... More

Tis a delightful July evening. J. Alexander’s on Washington Village (aka Redlands Grill) is a chain restaurant, and is one of the “originals” on Centerville’s “Restaurant Row.” We like talking with J. Alexander’s manager Greg, concerning subtle changes that may occur as J. Alexander’s transitions into Redlands Grill. Citing SEC documents, Nashville Post reports that the chain plans to convert...

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.
