Had lunch here the other day with a friend. Service was excellent. Had the Ahi Tuna Burger and it was tastey but the orzo salad that came with it was excellent. My friend had the grilled tenderloin and enjoyed it! Menu has a good array of items for whatever you are looking to have for lunch.

Made it here for the first time. Food is amazing and the drinks are delicious. I personally thought the prices are reasonable. I highly recommend the Salmon Dip as an appetizer and a Dirty Martin with blue cheese olives! Superb.

J Alexander's was highly recommended by my hotel concierge, as I asked for a recommendation specifically for Prime Rib. "You've got to go here", he said "best food in town." So, I go. The service was good, the drinks were ok, and the Prime Rib looked really good...until I sliced into it. I asked for it medium rare and it... More

Grabbed dinner here with a co-worker. It's a nice chain, even if it's in the middle of a shopping mall. I enjoyed my tacos, though there are a lot of other places I could go to.

This was my first visit here and I felt it was over inflated for average food. The couscous had an unusual flavor, sauce for my sandwich was extremely salty and I AM a salt addict. The sandwich was good. Again not worth the price. There are other sandwich places that I'd rather visit and pay half the amount. Disappointing.

I have never had a bad meal there. Love the steaks, burgers, fish tacos, the Thai salad is awesome..But the best thing ever is the carrot cake, hands down.
