If you are in need of a fine dining experience J Alexander's will not disappoint. The food is amazing everything is prepared elegantly and the service is excellent. The only negative would be the price. Do not expect to pay less than $30 per entree. If you are looking for a casual eatery this is not it. Pick a special... More

I went to dinner at this restaurant with my son. The appetizer, fire-roasted artichoke, is a total rip-off. By cutting it in quarters and "fire-roasting" it, it had little flavor and totally destroyed the best part, the heart. And I paid $13.00 for this! On the other hand, my son said that his "rattle-snake" pasta (with chicken) was delicious; this... More

Service and quality of food are the focus of this restaurant...and they did a great job at both. They had an extensive wine selection offering several of our favorite Foley wines. The crab cakes were delicious, as were the steak tacos and queso dip with fresh pico de gallo and chips. I am highly selective when ordering baked goods and... More

Went to J's last night and I visit this restaurant several times a year. Always good food, I ordered salmon with broccoli. For dessert I ordered Crème Brulee. Reason I really wanted to write a review is because the manager was very accommodating and caring. We got a drink at the bar while we waited and when they buzzed us... More

I go there for lunch every time I am in the area. Never had less than an excellent lunch. Friendly efficient and professional staff. Great crab cakes and excellent prime rib. Not inexpensive but good value for money. Lunch for two with gratuity can easily exceed $75 so if that's a problem not for you.

Please note that average is OK; but, when there are so many NON-chain restaurants in the Jacksonville and Beaches area, it seems a bit silly to dine in a so-so place when there are so many other better original non-chain choices. I don't mean to be a spoiler; it earned just 3 stars. The physical attributes are very nice including... More

We ate lunch here, second time for us at this property. Food was tasty, service was professional and we were very pleased with our experience. The portion size is large for lunch salads!

One of the best places for dinner in Jacksonville. The menu is great, service is fast and attentive, and the decor and atmosphere is welcoming. Love the fish tacos and house salad!

Thanks to the many tips here on Trip Advisor we had the onion rings. They were awesome! This appetizer is enough for at least 4 people. All the portion sizes were large. The carrot cake was the best I have ever had. My husband ordered a few drinks and he thought the bartender was generous and the drinks were perfect.... More
