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.

The steak was delicious and perfectly cooked. The calamari was also perfectly cooked and tender. We loved the low lit atmosphere and our server was fantastic. Our server recommended the mac n' cheese as a side and said it was better than any mac n' cheese made anywhere. She was right.

I generally avoid chain restaurants, but I love J Alexanders. Their salads are to die for! Quality is always superb. Only downfall is the food and drinks are kinda pricey.

I know there are other J. Alexander's locations out there -- but this one in Dayton is the best! From the minute you walk up to this restaurant, the experience is terrific. The outside landscaping is neat and lovely, and when you enter, the hostesses are instantly gracious and welcoming. Even on a busy night, we were seated within 15... More

This is mine and my wife's favorite restaurant. We have been here about a dozen time and have never had a bad experience. Every dish we have tried was excellent! Food is warm, accurate, and served timely always. Would highly recommend if you are in the area. No reservations are needed unless you have a big party.
