The front desk clerk at the Holiday Inn Express recommended this and gave us tickets for free appetizers. The food was out of this world. It wasn't cheap but it was WELL worth the price! Delicious!

We found this restaurant on tripadvisor and decided to check it out. It's easy to find and has a big parking lot. We went around 530 and it was already busy so if you going later in the evening definitely make a reservation. The atmosphere is sophisticated and classy without being too pretentious. The service was absolutely amazing! Our waitress... More

This is just a special place to have dinner or lunch if you want to nap after. We have been here many times and I was never disappointed with anything I ordered and the service is the best. They really seem to care about their customers. There are so many food items that i could write about as I tend... More

I can't even begin to describe how absolutely amazing this restaurant is! We blindly chose to eat dinner here after a long day of work. Being form out of town we didn't know what to expect, but our expectations were blown out of the water! First the atmosphere they have created is so inviting! From the decor to the amazing... More

I recently went here to meet a friend for cocktails and a late lunch on recommendation from family members. We sat at the bar and Chelsea was extremely friendly and helped us decide on drinks. It was apparent that she was very busy as the bar was completely full but the service was the best I had received in a... More

In the past have been very pleased with this restaurant. Last night we had the onion stack for appetizer. One of the onions still had the outside skin on it. I pointed it out to the waiter and he said he apologized. Then when my filet came it was to be medium. It was rare 3/4 the way through and... More

Ate here for lunch. We had the smoked salmon dip, followed by Alex's salad. I had pork tenderloin medallions in bang-bang sauce with mac'n'cheese, while my partner had cilantro shrimp. My meal was great! Good flavor, generous portions. The cilantro shrimp was a little disappointing, as it was not very flavorful and was not particularly hot either. Service was good... More

We always like to eat at Jay Alexander's when given a chance while traveling. Yes, it's a chain restaurant - but we love the atmosphere, décor and amazing menu. We have never had a bad experience at any of their restaurants - it's always well worth the price!

Nice looking restaurant. I was planning on eating dinner at the bar. Too bad I couldn't get the bartender to even acknowledge me. After 10 minutes I decided to leave. I'm pissed, but there are plenty of restaurants down the road.

Thirsty for a cocktail....offer by an attentive mixologist...while seated at a stylish bar, this is the place. Don't sit there too long, because you will need to retreat to the dining room for a superb meal.
