Hidden in the Quarry Market mall in Alamo Heights is one of our favorite places to eat. This is a classy place with high level service and great food. We had lunch on a weekday and our server was Jen, she was very good. The quiet ambiance puts J. Alexander above most other restaurants in this area. It so relaxing... More

This place serves typical American fare and does a good job at it, the service was very good. The mesquite grill offers a real zing to the food.

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.
