Great service, good food

Had the steak burger for a business lunch. Ordered it grilled medium, but it came out with too much red inside, but a nice char on the outside. I did not return it because I can still enjoy a burger cooked that way, and the meat was excellent. The burger came with really skinny fries, which are... read more

Very nice experience.The onion rings are fabulous! Loved the Rattlesnake pasta. The carrot cake was served warm and was outstanding. Victoria was our server and did a great job!

I dined with office colleagues at the Jacksonville J. Alexander's and thought both food and ambiance were terrific. The highlight of the meal was the Mexico City Spinach Con Queso - it easily was the most heavenly, creamy queso I've ever had, and having it with the nicely salted light tortilla chips was the most ideal way to start a...

My husband and I are in Jacksonville quite frequently and love to eat here when near the TownCenter. Food is always wonderful. Love the veggie burgers and cajun fish offered as a special some days. My husband's favorite entree is the cypress salad. The only reason I am not giving this place 5 stars is because it is always so,... More

This place has always been a mystery to me. They don't show very much in terms of menu prices or happy hours specials on their website. However, we decided to check it out on a whim and I was totally impressed. There wasn't happy hour going on, but we got a couple of their signature cocktails and they were delicious.... More

Our family found the Jacksonville Town Center, J Alexander's, to be an excellent restaurant. The place is immaculate, the presentation excellent and prepared exactly as requested. They have an enormous wine collection and our server knew exactly the right wine. The overall service was quick and polite without rushing us. And the food, ah the food, amazing!

Been to the Palm Beach Gardens location many times so we decided to try this location. We ordered the grilled artichoke appetizer. I'm always tempted to tell the waiters not to fire up the entries while we are still eating a previous course like a salad or an appie. I feel that would insult a knowledgeable waiter so I didn't...

Great menu. The staff was top notch and helpful from hostess to management that visited our table. The spinach queso was a good choice. The prime rib with smashed potatoes was fabulous. The deserts were huge. It was one of the largest and best flavored creme brules. The chocolate cake as well.

Great big menu with good choices. I had the prime rib sandwich and it was very good. Big portions of everything. We shared the chocolate cake and ice cream between three of us and we had some left. It was yummy.
