Best damn veggie burger EVER, tastes like the real thing. The service is fantastic, wine list extensive and the food is fantastic. I highly recommend going here for a nice Sunday lunch or dinner any night of the week.

This was a real surprise, I had heard a lot about this chain, but had never tried it before. It is located in the Town Center Mall, with good close-by parking. The place appears to be always busy, reservations suggested. Very nice, modern atmosphere, and superb waitstaff, helpful and pleasant. Very nice atmosphere, with reasonable noise level that allows a... More

This is 2 star restaurant charging 4 star prices. Basically the price point does not match the quality or level of service. The food was not bad but is more on the caliber of a chain like Carrabba's or Outback. Wait staff was semi-attentive but got my order wrong. The onion rings, M&C and Prime Rib were all good but...

Let me start by saying that this use to be my favorite restaurant in Jax. With that being said, things have definitely changed, from service to quality of food. I know the previous service manager was transferred to another state, so that may take care of the reason the servers are not on top of their game anymore. They use... More

Atmosphere? Just like any other chain, mid-pack, hillstone/houston's wannabe....Service, well we'll try harder next time. Food, well not so sure that the corporate chef has paid a visit to dial in the kitchen in a while.... Steak....meh. Salad....meh. Wine.....overpriced, lack of choice.....meh Why is it so hard to deliver good food and drinks at even above reasonable prices? Why oh... More

Ordered the prime rib and asked for an end cut which the were able to accommodate. The prime rib was so big I had to take 1/2 home and the service was great.

This used to be our favorite restaurant for business meetings; however, they recently cancelled our reservations the week before our event in order to accommodate a group from J Alexander's corporate office. They failed to offer us a reasonable alternative. What a disappointment, we were really looking forward to the evening.

We haven't visited J. Alexander's in maybe a year, so I was interested to see what was going on here of late. Although I am not a big fan of chain restaurants, we have had good dining experiences here in the past. Not so this time. We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation.

I've been to J. Alexanders twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times were enjoyable, if not exceptional. That's OK with me--they do what they try to do very well. They have a varied menu of offerings from inventive appetizers to fish tacos to fine steaks. It's upscale from, say Carrabbas, and doesn't try to be Ruth Chris.... More
