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.

Service very good...servers removed dishes promptly and were very inconspicuous. Only disappointment were the... More

We have been there three times in the past 6 months and love it. The crab cakes are flavorful with lumps and very little filler, fries are thin and salty and crispy, Mac n cheese is amazing - best I've had, mashed potatoes are nicely prepared and comes in a huge portion, the sourdough bread is soft in the middle...

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 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
